Joint owners on boards, whether partners who own a unit or husband/wife ownership, create a potential conflict because the joint owners may act as a voting block on all issues rather than acting independently. There is nothing illegal with joint owners on boards. Even so, many associations are uncomfortable with the arrangement and amend
their bylaws to prevent this from occurring.
