    You can backup any iPad on any Mac (or Windows computer for that matter), without regard to who the devices are registered to. I often backup my friends' and co-workers' iPads on my computer when I'm updating or restoring their devices. The key to not getting your info mixed with theirs is not to push "sync." Just connect your wife's iPad, if any popups ask you if you want to sync it, say no. Then once it is connected, you should see a "backup" button in iTunes. Or maybe it was in the menu somewhere. Anyway, just backup, don't sync.
