I actually keep it on and just set it next to me. I am also married and my wife certainly understands the logistics of a pump. If it is with someone you don't necessarily want to know about the pump/diabetes just take it off and set it wherever you can. Suspending is a good idea if you will need a reminder to put it back on but that annoying beeping when it is suspended will cut into the mood a bit I would imagine.
Just take it off and set it beside me. I have been married for 23 years and my wife certainly understands. Not a big deal to disconnect for a while. If it is off for more than 15 minutes I just give a small bolus to make up for the insulin. Usually the "activity" takes care of the insulin not put in so I just reconnect and go on. Never has been an issue for me.
If I get "lucky" with my wife or not, I like to sleep without clothes. So whenever I get into bed I use a Medtronic velcro pump holder, I have one that goes around my waist, they also make one for the leg. I just slide the pump around to my back/side away from my wife. Also before starting heavy activity in bed I give myself a lowered temp basal rate so I don't get a low blood sugar.
