Can a husband press charges against his wife for theft?

Question Details:

I went to check my account today and noticed it was lower than I expected. I asked for a statement by the bank and found that over the last 3 months $3,100 has been taken out in increments of $100-$300 from ATMs. Since I rarely withdraw money from ATMs, I went and filed a report with my bank and another with the police thinking my card was somehow copied and being used. Long story short: My wife was pretending to mail off house payments that I wrote checks for, and then taking the money for herself at ATMs. It is important to note that although we're married the bank account is in my name only.
