Dear brother in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

To leave congregation and perform Salaah at home without any necessity is forbidden. But one who cannot go to the Masjid and perform Salaah in congregation because of some valid reasons, is permitted to offer Salaah at home. Such person can also perform Salaah in congregation with his wife. But the wife should not stand beside her husband. She should stand behind. (Raddul Muhtaar Alaa Durril-Mukhtaar, Babul Imamah 1: 419)

And Allah knows the best,
