My idea was for DW and I to each create an identity but not reveal it to one another. Then try to discover the ID by sleuth.
I thought this might get her more interested in the financial side of ER. She did'nt go for it.

How's it going to end..............

So far I'm not seeing any active couples both posting, so I think I'm seeing a theme here. Perhaps it's just such a rare thing to be interested in or excited about that there just aren't many of us out there!

DH is online all the time but has no interest in forums or the like. He knows I post and I'll occasionally mention threads, but he doesn't want to read them. DS is the one that was amazed that I'm posting on an online forum (he has no idea that I posted a whole bunch on a Prodigy forum about breastfeeding when he was a baby!)

Like many others here, my DH has no interest in finance or economics (beyond the simple constraints that day-to-day and month-to-month spending imposes). Nor is she, unlike me, attracted to the virtual communities that online forums represent.

That said, I'd never say anything about her online that I wouldn't be comfortable saying to her face.

Sidebar question: I know that the acronym 'DH' stands for spouse or significant other. But what is it actually short for?
