Rav Moshe Feinstein: If A Man Makes Early Shabbos Can His Wife Do Melacha?

The Shulchan Aruch (OC 243:17) says that some hold if you make early Shabbos you can ask your friend who has not yet been mekabel Shabbos to do melacha for you. Rav Moshe Feinstein paskens (IM OC 3:38) that although man's wife does not need to be mekabel Shabbos when her husband does, nevertheless she should not do any melacha for him since her work is owned by him it falls under the issur of "L'Maan Yanuach".
