Merging foreign households in Switzerland; implications for 18.44

Here's a fun one.

My new wife and I live in separate countries and have separate visas for entering Switzerland; we are recently married and both have job offers for CH. She has a visa, I am a Schengen citizen.

We have a question about importing our stuff into CH under the duty-free arrangement.

We each have one shipment of multiple boxes. As we are sending them from different locations and we are entering under separate visas, we presume that we can send them under separate names.

Question;
Can we both import our household goods separately? Or, as we are married and will be cohabiting do we have to declare them on the 18.44 form - i.e. each person's shipment is only a partial shipment that has to reference the other's?

Thanks! (and yes, I used the search function without any luck)

Schengen is irrelevant for Custom purposes.
