    Currently, my wife and I have all our devices associated with one (my) AppleID, and share our purchases. If she sets up her own AppleID, can we still share each others purchases? If so, can someone explain in simple terms how to go about it?

    You can use Family Sharing. That way, it's possible to use apps, music, books, movies, ... purchased by family members that are part of family sharing.

    The one who sets it up is the organizer, and he/she needs a valid payment method. After setting up Family Sharing, you invite up to five family members.

    Here are Apple's instructions:
    Set up Family Sharing

    JA,
    Thanks for that. Looking into it further, it seems tailor made for what we want.
