Have you tried restarting your phone? What kind of phone do you have?

Can you send texts to your regular friends or are they just blocked to local folks?

You may need their country code included in the number you text. Try adding a '+' or +1 in front of the number.

Have you tried David's suggestion? +1 (for Canada/US) is required. +xx (where xx is the country code overseas) is required for int'l numbers.

Try switching the SIM cards between yours and your wifes phones and let us know what happens. (Does roaming on your SIM work in her phone and vice versa)

It's difficult to narrow down if it is a phone setting issue or a network/account issue.

Can you receive texts if your wife sends to you?
