The other thing, though, is that in all cases our sailing classes were pretty far from home. We live in NC, and went to schools in Florida and Charleston. These provided vacation opportunities for the two of us in addition to school. We wouldn't travel that far from home without each other, and it would have been more expensive to arrange classes separately.
Everyone is different, but I know a lot of couples who plan to sail and/or cruise together, as we do, do fine taking classes at the same time -- every couple is different. Having one spouse teach the other to sail is another matter entirely, but in our case, we were both equally newbies to the whole sailing thing, so classes together were the most efficient way to go.
