    Every time I write a note in my 5s, my wife automatically gets the same note in her notes. Does anyone know how to stop it from doing that?.

    Sure. Don't be linked to the same iCloud account. That's kinda the idea of a cloud sync.

    I know it's a silly question but you're not logged in to each phone under the same iCloud / Me account are you?

    Sounds like you are using 1 Apple ID for two people. It's syncing your notes to all your devices which in this case aren't yours.

    If that's the case try going to settings > iCloud > notes > toggle off

    Settings/icloud/notes Turn that option to off.

    This is the only truly correct answer. (the others are correct but far more drastic than necessary)

    One can share iCloud with multiple devices. Simply select which items you wish to sync. It's that simple.

    Correct.
    I use my icloud with a few family members also and like you said you gotta be careful what icloud items you select to turn on with select devices.
    My brother ended up getting all my contacts one time when he messed around with those settings.

    There's only one that states not to use the same iCloud account. Given that the OP didn't consider the impact it's impossible to say what is the best solution for the OP since the OP has probably overlooked other considerations as well.

    Well the issue certainly isn't from him NOT using the same iCloud account. His wife isn't going to randomly get his emails...

    Another option, though a little more work, would be to create new iCloud accounts for both you and your wife but continue sharing the same AppleID for app/music purchases. That way there's no need to buy your content all over again and each of you can have all your stuff backed up to iCloud in case you get a new iPhone or something. Again, it'll be a little more work than just turning off Notes in the iCloud settings, but still something to consider.
