Two User Accounts, problem solved.
Together with fast user switching it takes seconds to change from one to the other User Account.
To make a new User go to Users & Groups in the System Preferences, make your wife's one (also) an admin account.
Also there in the Users & Groups is the checkbox to switch on fast user switching under login options.

well im still having issues. i tried syncing my contacts on my account and nothing happened. while her contacts synced and they show on my contact card when i sign in. is it possible for us to keep the privacy of our information to ourselves ?

You want to use different AppleIDs for iCloud but a single id for purchases from the app store and iTunes.
