Yes there is. When you start iTunes or iPhoto hold down the either the Command or Option key (Sorry I forget which one) and that will bring up a dialog box where you Select What Library to use for that program. Select the Library in your Wifes user folder area. Then you will have access to it from your username account.

To add if you use TM for backups it backs up the complete system so any changes you make in YOUR User account will be saved and re-applied when, Not If, the drive or system fails and you have to restore from the TM backup.

It doesn't help with the OP's first question....
Is there an easy way for me to use the iphoto and itunes files under my login, ie can they be shared so both can view the pictures or listen to the music when logged in to their own account?
Thanks for picking up on and covering the TM question.

This for iTunes ;
IPhoto will likely be something similar, but I don't use it and can't find a reference at the mo.
Perhaps someone else can help out there.
