To be fair, one of the biggest reasons the wives don't show up is the introduction of kids.

My gf came to most of my games. Once we married, she still comes to most of my games.

Once the kids enter the picture though, 10:30pm games in freezing cold rinks with lots of loud noises do not mesh well with 8pm bed times. Naturally, leaving a sleeping child at home alone doesn't work out well either, and if you're going to spring for a babysitter for an evening, there are far better things to do with that brief freedom than weekly rec league hockey. And even if bedtime is not an issue, sitting alone in the cold watching rec league hockey is not the greatest desire for an exhausted sleep-deprived mom.
