My Old Coworkers Invited me to a Boardgame Night and My Wife Responded to this Exactly the Way I Expected.

Ok so I've mentioned at least twice that my wife is suspicious of my old coworkers who all happen to be women. (whichh she has only met once and has zero valid reason to be suspicious of). The first/last time they had invited me to something (it was a Harry Potter Movie night) it became an argument because my wife "trusts me" but "doesn't trust other women". and obviously they were trying to seduce me and I wanted to cheat on her etc.
Well my old coworkers are at it again with their evil tricks!
They invited me to a board game night. I decided I would be strategic in breaching the subject to my wife. Because of course I have to run it by wife because someone has to watch the kids. Well I decided to tell her via text while I was at work and maybe this would give her time to be calm and think it over.
I should have known better.
So I get home and I can tell she is very worried about something. She is clearly bummed out and concerned etc. So I try to get her to tell me what's going on. It takes a lot of prodding but eventually she decides to tell me what is up.
So she starts going into how she thinks I don't love her anymore (which despite her many faults isn't true) how she thinks we are drifting apart and I am going to divorce her (which is maybe true but I ain't going to say that). and how we don't spend time together anymore and I make her a better person and she isn't a good person without me and all this stuff which was obviously a result of me wanting to go to this board game night. and we talk through it.
Then she goes into how it seems like I want to spend time with literally anyone but her. whichh was annoying because I spend a ton of time with her but whatever.
Then we finally get to my coworkers. and she says she doesn't get why I would want to hang out with them. We have nothing in common. I don't like my coworkers and usually I hate hanging out with my coworkers etc. "why do you want to hang out with them, I don't understand" andd "you don't really know them well enoughn to do this kind of thing with them" which I did say that she didn't really need to understand and their decent enough which is why I want to hang with them and you know I ain't ggoing on vacation with them I would do a board game night with total strangers if I was invited.
So after all that BS she finally gets to what she REALLY wantss to say. She says "I don't get why your coworkers are so obsessed with you. I trust you but I don't trust other people. Like obviously they are obsessed with you and well you can do what you want but its obvious that they are plotting something" and like she's met these people once and I haven't talked to them in about 4 months but they are obsessed with me.
So at that point I got pretty angry because its the whole cheating BS again and its pretty obvious but I wanted her to say it outright so I tried to get her to play her hand. and I asked her out right, "What plot do you thhink they have in mind, what evil thing could they possibly be planning" I overplayed it though because I was too angry and she sensed it and back pedaled. Gave me some nonsense about how they are, "obviously trying to get you to work for that company again, annd I don't want you doing thhat again it was so bad for you"
and then she tried to guilt me because I would miss some Bullshit christmas city event with the kids. and you know its one thing when I miss stuff because I work but now I am choosing to miss out on stuff with the kids. and my daughter constantly talks about how much she misses me and wishes I was there. etc.
I told her I am going anyway and that I get to decide what is an important use of my time and thhat was thankfully the end of it.
But she thinks my coworkers are collectively obsessed with me and collectively trying to seduce me. Like I would be so lucky dang.
Clearly I am the main protaganist in a hentai and its only a matter of time until I have my own harem.
did your wife see your raddle forum yet?
