Can I share music with my wife

Hi,
Wife has a PC w iTunes, iPhone and a Nano.
I have a MBP w iTunes, iPhone, iPad and a iPod.

We basically each have our separate iTunes libraries of music.

Is there a way to combine them, or at least access each others music??
Short of swapping iPod for Nano when we run.

Thx.

Frank

Yep. There's a nice feature in iTunes called Home Sharing. You'll have to sign in with the same Apple ID to the service, but it'll let you copy music that's not on that computer from the other one over your wireless or wired network. Just open it on each computer and tell it to show only the music that's not on that computer, then copy over all or part of it, depending on what you want.

Home Sharing allows copying. That's why you're required to sign in with your Apple ID on both machines.
