This would not be harmful in any way, but you and your spouse should bathe afterward. Unlike mineral oils, after several hours edible oils can foster bacterial growth, which might cause unpleasant odor and in theory might slightly increase the risk of infection from skin bacteria (like staph or strep). But certainly no health risks in regard to olive oil during sex or around the vagina.

It is OK to do that and it will not cause any problem to your spouse.
