As you're turning the key, start turning the steering wheel, it'll free right up. It's a safety measure.

Sometimes if the steering wheel is turned while the car is off, it will get into a position where the lock + the position of the wheels, don't allow the ignition to unlock the steering lock. Ask your wife to aggressively try to turn the steering wheel one way while attempting to turn the key in the ignition. If that doesn't work, try moving the wheel aggressively in the other direction while attempting to turn the key in the ignition.

Make sure the shifter is in park, if it's an automatic. A small rock/coin/bead can get caught in between the top and stop it from fully going into P position.
