Looking for recommendations for a specific scenario - 2 people, 2 cameras (A73), which lenses to buy

I'm looking for some recommendations for this scenario from others who've been in the same situation as I'm finding it hard to determine what's the best way to handle this.

My wife and I are considering trading in our current cameras (she has a Fuji XT-2 and I have a Nikon D7100) and getting two A73's.

We've sort of figured out what lenses (1 of each is our initial thought) we should get at first (here's a draft list):

  • Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8
  • Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA
  • Sony 24-105mm f/4

How do you "share" lenses between two people and not argue about wanting to use a specific lens that the other person is using?  Buy two of each?  I know, weird question, but looking for real world feedback on what others have done in this scenario.
