I think my wife and I actually agree on this point, as well. There are many things we do not see eye to eye on when it comes to the economy of the Plan of Salvation (we just keep bouncing things off of each other and life presents principles that settle some things, and leave others open-ended until further learning surfaces) - but we settled on this one early on as truth. My wife has far greater wisdom than I have - and I would say that she has a gift of wisdom - so I have learned early on to not discount her opinions, or at least to my own detriment, so I leave myself open to eventually possibly coming around or meeting in the middle on other topics where I have opposite views:
The only way God progresses is when we, His offspring, progress. For behold, this is My Work AND My GLORY, to bring to pass the Immortality and Eternal Life of man. When we succeed, He succeeds..... The biggest cosmic MLM gig to ever exist. As those below Him rise, so does He become magnified.
