It is better to wait. And another true story.
There was a husband who wanted to be chrismated against the wishes of his wife. He told her that he was just inquiring, nothing more. When he started purchasing icons, prayer ropes, incense, candles, books (over a thousand books), and then made an icon stand and next a reader's stand to store all his bible and his Orthodox liturgical books, she became very upset because he was transforming her living room into a chapel. Man, he was so zealous that he acted like a Marine General in the Orthodox Church. Therefore, she contacted her Catholic priest, who told her to get her marriage annulled, which would cost money as they would have to get a divorce first. With a house full of children, it would be nasty, as she threatened to move away from him, make him pay alimony and child support, and not allow custodial privileges.
Since the priest was kept in the dark as he was never able to speak with the wife, did not know what was truly happening in the home, nor how dire the situation was, he chrismated the husband. Within three weeks, the husband flew the white flag and surrendered. Now the man is back in the Catholic Church because he neither wanted to lose his wife, nor lose custody of his children.
If an Orthodox Priest asks to interview both husband and wife when only one wants to convert, he has good reasons for doing so. My priest scheduled appointments for me and my husband to see us separately and together. Gradually, my husband came around, but it took three years.
And most importantly, he was the first one to be received as a catechumen, and he was the first one in our family to be chrismated as a new Orthodox Christian.
