    So... Family sharing doesn't include Contacts... Or am I missing something?

    No. They haven't added that one yet from what I can find. Not the ideal solution, but you can share a different contact service like add a Google/Outlook etc account you both share so you can share the contacts. The you have you iCloud contacts you for individual/private needs and the Google/Outlook contacts for the ones you want to share.

    Thanks! It felt like I was taking crazy pills! Sharing them contact for contact isn't that big a deal to us, so I just iMessaged her a .csv from my Mac. I'll have her add them later this morning.

    Which reminds me once again how awesome it is to have a Mac if you're an iOS user. I don't know what the hell someone would do if they didn't have a Mac other than share each contact individually.

    PPS, Delete the .csv file out of your text chain after it has been imported to your contacts. A 1000 contact file makes Messages app pretty chuggy!
