Marriott Rewards Credit Card- Spouse?

My wife and I are interested in getting the (Canadian) Marriott Rewards Visa Card. I hold a Marriott Rewards account, and 100% of the Marriott travel in our family is done by either me alone or myself and my wife together. In the context of our general finances, we'd like to apply for the card under my wife's name (and get an authorized user card for me), but would prefer to link the card to my Marriott account as opposed to establishing a new account for my wife (in order to best take advantage of elite night credits etc.). She would never be using my Marriott rewards number directly, aside from being the account holder on the card linked to my number. Does anyone have a sense if this is doable?

Thanks for the help!
