I am trying to figure out a solution to this problem, and hoping someone can help. Running Mountain Lion and using the Contacts app. I've run into a problem for storing our contacts. When two people are married, my wife likes to keep them together as one contact (John and Jane Doe) since they live at the same address. But, if we also list a birthday for Jane Doe, it shows up on the calendar as both their names, since that is how their card reads in contacts. Not sure I want to keep a separate card for each family member though. On the other hand, it would be nice to keep everyone individual for using on our iphones. We also use icloud, so I am trying not to duplicate information if I don't have to. What does everyone else do? Is it possible to keep them separate in one view (our phones) but combined in another view (on the Mac)?
