I don't see how you can think it's the same as saying someone has a "nice wife".
I don't think it's exactly the same. I was just giving an alternate example to point out why I don't think your interpretation of it as an insult makes sense.
And I just think that complimenting someone on their wife is a bit like saying: "nice catch"... which you obviously can when talking about cars (or fish). Maybe it's just me, but I definitely hear (/read) it as someone finding it so difficult to believe that you have such a nice wife that they need to tell you so.
