Our membership is defined by household, and for quorum you just need one of the owners, even if there are co-owners. We define Class I decisions, for which we need ten-day notice and a quorum of households represented. Class II is everything else. Agenda is announced in advance, and whoever comes, does the work of the meeting. No quorum required.

In consensus, every individual is equal, regardless of being part of a couple or multi-owner household.

We have a back up voting provision (which in 21years we have never needed to use) which specifies that co-owners can split their household's vote, or if only one votes, it is counted as representing that household.
