    TY
    There is only one rule to know what is correct break the statement in this case say
    my wife and me went for a movie

    now you can brek it into two

    My wife went for a movie
    me went for a movie

    second sentence does not make a sense
    but

    I went for a movie does make a sense
    so

    My wife & I is correct


    Hope it helps

    Re: hello

    Context matters. Are you using the phrase as a subject or an object? My wife and I went out to eat. They gave a free dessert to my wife and me.

    Forget you have a wife. Would you use "I" or "me" then? Would you say "Me went out to dinner"? "They gave a free dessert to I"?
