Does my wife need her own membership?

My wife and I are about to start a tour across New York state and I just became a new member of Warm Showers. Does my wife also need to become a member on her own, or should she "piggyback" on my membership? What do most married couples do?

Does my wife need her own membership?

She does not need a separate ID. I've seen it done all three ways (identifed by one partner, both names together, two different accounts). I'd stick with it identified as just you if you're usually the primary contact, or revise it to identify both of you if you're usually together. I'd only have two accounts if you expect to do a lot of your traveling or hosting separately. I think it's sensible to just identify one of you if you're the only one that travels by bike; if both your travels and hosting are primarily joint, then it makes sense to identify yourselves as a couple.

THANK YOU

Thanks for the informative answer! I agree and ultimately decided to list us as a couple. I even created a profile pic that included both of us and the cat.

Best Regards

Is the cat a host, tourist, or both?
