I don't like this

I don't like this at all. By handing the Gospels to  his wife what is the newly ordained deacon saying? This is not part of the official ordination ceremony. It  took place in LA so I'm not surprised by novelty and I imagine that the liturgy organizers were trying to emphasize that a deacon can't do the job without his wife's support but this looks like the wife is getting an official role as well. It makes me feel uneasy.
