    When you go to iTunes, after connecting the iPad, there is an option 'Manage Music manually'. Select that and then choose only the music you want to have on your iPad.

    You can have 2 iTunes libraries on one computer. When you open iTunes, as soon as you double click it, press and hold shift until a window pops up. You can create a new library or open an existing one. That way you can have your iPad and your wife's ipad synced with one computer but not have each other's stuff mixed up. After you sync your iPad, do the shift thing and select the other iTunes library and your wife can sync.
