Gold won’t get you a middle seat blocked. It is good your wife is silver as CX requires each passenger to have status for seat selection.

My main recommendation for CX Economy would be to make sure you fly on the 350 and not the 777 (both 3-3-3 but a massive difference in seat width)

I’ve had middle seat blocked for me on a recent flight to Istanbul which was almost full (checked on expertflyer beforehand) and I’m only Silver, so for sure it’ll happen for Golds.
