Hmm, I think this is probably because you have downloaded/bought apps using your wife's apple ID before, so it detects that those apps are bought under her ID, and so you have to use her ID to update those particular apps.

To solve the problem go to the App Store and scroll to the bottom, the ID there should be yours, if it's your wife's then just touch it and sign out, and sign in using yours, then go download those apps that you want using your account, and delete the old ones bought using your wife's account. Then in future they should ask you to use your ID.

A warning, though: if you delete them, for some apps, data will be removed. For example some games use game accounts to track purchases and you can restore them, but for some if you delete and re-install them they will treat you as a new user.
