This largely duplicates your other question. See that reply. You're just like half of all adults. With no symptoms of either genital herpes or oral herpes (cold sores), most likely you never will and your wife will be at little risk. Just plan to avoid kissing her in event of a cold sore or a genital outbreak, then no worries.
