Weekly Hiring Questions and Advice Thread

Hey everyone, my wife is going through the application process and I understand they will interview me as her spouse. I've never been arrested or charged but i had police give me a "slap on the wrist" for a really stupid thing I did when I was 17. It was effectively a conversation and a stern warning. I am very embarrassed about it. I was just asked to apologize to the victim and they accepted. It was a form of bullying. For context this is over 15 years ago. I really don't want to talk about this again.

If they ask point blank about it, I will answer truthfully, but I really do not want to volunteer this information or get posed some odd "is there ANYTHING you want to tell us" question, where they are testing my truthfulness. I don't want my crap to affect my wife's chances.

TLDR: Is there any chance the recruitment officers could look that far back into the history of the applicant's spouse? Is there any chance my behavior, from years ago, in my personal life, that has nothing to do with my wife, could affect her chances?
