There are a few times throughout chapter two that you can tell Wilson's wife was not interested in him at all. I mean, she IS Tom's mistress, even though he has a wife of his own.
One of these times begin one page 25

"She smiled slowly and, walking through her husband as if her were a ghost, shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye. Then she wet her lips, and without turning around spoke to her husband in a soft, coarse voice:
  "Get some chairs, why don't you, so somebody can sit down."

She spoke to her husband as if he was a servant, and Tom was a new love. From that moment in the book, the words Fitzgerald uses, you can tell that Tom means more to her than Wilson himself does. It makes us wonder, however, how would they pull this off, in a real-life situation, in the 1920's.
