    She needs to share your AppleID.

    All the apps you buy will then be available on both iPads.

    Note that this will not prevent you from having separate email/iMessage/FaceTime etc.

    You and your wife would have to use the same iTunes account in order to share apps between devices. She would just go to the purchased list in the app store, select the ones she wants and download them.

    If you both have your own accounts, she would have to download them herself from the App Store and pay for them, if the apps in question are paid apps.

    Just be sure that the apps you have, that your wife would like to share, are upgraded to support a retina display.
