1 Subscription per ID, so both of you will need Live subs as it is account specific.

Not sure how it works for the user above (or if in fact it does) if you try and log the second one in whilst already logged in on your first one. Are you allowed to have 2 instances of the same gamertag logged in at the same time? Can't ever remember seeing any exact duplicates of gamertags online before in game.

You can only have your gamertag stored on one Xbox 360 at a time. You have to either move your gamertag via Memory Unit or recover it via the online recovery tool. It stops unauthorised (mis)use of gamertags.

I would agree that you need 2 subscriptions but also it depends on the games you play. My GF and me pay for an account each but if you dont mind one of you going on as a guest then some games like Halo (and maybe GOW2) only need one Gold account. I would pay for the one Gold account and see what options the games you play offer before splashing out on a 2nd.
