Forwarding this thread to the OPs wife. She is going to be crushed, but I feel she should know.
Greg, you just have to convince your wife that the relationship is purely platonic. One tip: never refer to it as "My Scandinavian beauty".
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

You now have an insatiable mistress who constantly wants expensive "accessories" and has a desire to "go out" all the time. Guard your credit card.
I think my Bronica is beautiful... but envy you your new Hasselblad nonetheless. Have fun and make great photographs.

I'm afraid my wife will see me cuddling with it, so i hid all the sledgehammers...
Just tell the wife that no one wants those old bulky film cameras so you only had to pay $20 at a garage sale.
Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!
Nothing beats a great piece of glass!
I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Take some family photographs with the Blad. Women love pictures of their kids or grandkids. This will convert your wife.
After you convert your wife, tell her you need more lenses for the camera so you can take even better pictures.
Some guys get all the luck. I have to sleep with a Pentax 6x7. Is it wrong?
Don't ask, don't tell. Please don't tell.
I second that - nothing beats the SQUARE!
