I would take some considerable time getting to know the new bike before I took a passenger on. Also, don't push her comfort level at all. This can be a fun thing you do together, but if she gets freaked out, it's over. Also, I would be very hesitant to go anywhere near dirt with a passenger for a LONG time.
Make sure she has all the gear. ATGATT. Armored everything and a full face helmet. I can't imagine anything much worse than sitting in the emergency room with my wife wishing I has bought a full face helmet.
Not trying to be a downer. Have fun with the new bike!
