  • Maybe put a Green Scapular under her side of the bed or somewhere she spends a lot of time, and pray the rosary for her. Conversions have occurred through this practice. She may receive the grace to pray with you.

  • resentment
    like how Rachel seemingly resented Jacob:
    1 And Rachel seeing herself without children, envied her sister, and said to her husband: Give me children, otherwise I shall die.
    2 And Jacob being angry with her, answered: Am I as God, who hath deprived thee of the fruit of thy womb?

  • Maybe it's the fact that they have no children after a decade that she has resentment.
    of course there's resentment
    And he has much bigger problems than his wife not praying with him.
    Such as?

  • are children being thwarted?
    not actively
    Do you / your wife want children?
    in younger days, yes, but no longer

    I don't think so.

  • To OP, if you and your wife share at least one meal together, do you pray before you eat?

    It sounds like praying the Rosary together is too much--right now.  Does your wife have any favorites saints or devotions?  Perhaps you can pray a novena together.  
    Surge, Domine, et dissipentur inimici, et eos qui oderunt te, a facie tua!  
    St Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle!

  • What's a Catholic husband to do if his wife doesn't pray with him?
    My suggestion is as you are the key to your wife's full conversion, never stop praying, arrange Masses be offered for this important intention..... At this time in your life, it is your special cross, don't drag behind you, but embrace it completely!
    God bless you both.

    You didn’t say your ages.  I don’t know for sure, but I highly doubt my mother prayed for children after a certain age!  She prayed for grandchildren.
    You cannot convert your wife.  That’s the job of the Holy Ghost.  Your job is to cooperate with God by persevering in prayer for her.  Maybe if you just quit urging her to pray, pleading with her, giving her religious items, purposely praying so she can hear and see you, she’ll think you’ve given up.  That could lead her to wonder if she’s really a hopeless case and go to God for herself.  If you try this, pray about it first and make no change until you get permission.  I don’t know you or your wife, but I know of a woman who converted when her boyfriend seemingly gave up on proselytizing her.

  • The Cure of Ars knew that there were different demons for temptation.  Some require fasting. You fast with your prayers. There is a book on Satan in the Modern world.
    It describes how the victims act, such as not prayerful and etc. And what helps to take care of demons, put them on their way out.
