    My wife is on here reading my posts. I told her she should get on here under her name so you guys can get to know her too. What do you think?

    I would never get on here under my husbands name. People might think we are related. [​IMG]

    I think you should each have separate names. Things are less confusing that way (and you don't have to be like, "Hi! This is ___" or "This is ___" every time).

    I second the comment about enabling. [​IMG] [​IMG] You may need a bigger coop after she joins with her own name (or his and hers coops...? Now there's an idea...).

    I have messaged couples who share a name before and HATED it.

    For one, sometimes you don't know who you are talking to and they may have missed a previous message. And miscommunication and misunderstandings happen.

    It's hard to explain, but everyone should have their own!

    She should get her own name here so you two can send each other pm's! And so we can get to know her! [​IMG] My husband and I belong to another forum and we both have unique names. We use it to communicate when he's at work. I can leave him a note on his pm's to stop and get bread on his way home! [​IMG]

    :DThanks for the replies. I think she is going to get her own screen name now. She is almost as crazy about chickens as I am although I think she might argue with me about that. LOL!
