When I started dating my wife 8 years ago I spent most of time out of home (working, rowing, partying, etc), and my 20G tank at the time was a shame. When we married, we decided to live on her house and getting rid of that 20g was part of the deal. Some months later I convinced her to build another one (25g as far as I remember - converting to us gallons of course) and as our baby girl was born the tank was part of the decoration and part of the sleeping routine of our girl.
Some time later we did some improvements here (our home office became our girl's room, and part of our closet became our new home office) and we had to get rid of the tank. So I started a nano tank with a female betta (lol).Then she suggested that we build a larger tank at our living room. It's my prettiest tank ever to date, she got really fond of it, specially the surviving discus (we had a couple, the female died and the male is still reigning there). Now we're planning to change to a bigger one to dedicate do discus and neon tetras (about 70 us gallons). It'll be at the end of the year and I'm already planning how to migrate fish to the bigger one, filtration, to accelerate cycling, etc
So yes, I think I have a high spouse acceptance, but it was something I fought for
