    What kind of questions?
    What e-mail service do you use?
    How is your wife's account related to yours?

    More details are needed to be able to offer an answer or suggestion.

    Before logging into even your own account I would run a virus scan on your system.. It's highly unlikely that any legitimate email login is going to be asking for credentials to another account. Who are you using for e-mail?

    Some good free antivirus programs are AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes and eScan's MWAV. Try one or two of these. Not all anti virus programs will catch everything. Report back if you are still have issues.

    Since we don't know the kind of questions being asked, I still think it could be legit, if, for example, the OP set his wife's account as a secondary contact method for security purposes, such as when you forget passwords and similar things.

    When it asks, either after successful login or before login. If it asks when you try to login, after supplying user / pass, assuming that, you supplied wrong user / pass, while wife's account details put there for hint questions. Is it your account / someone else.
