Spouse to Spouse to same household to same household is free?
Is it possible to transfer father - wife ( same household) to husband ( different household- they currently live in Israel).

Reason is since no one has enough points themselves for a flight but combine everyone together they do.
fees still apply, sell the miles.

Should get as long as the card was used for the ticket.(here being the fees)
 And you can call to confirm that the bag was added to ur reservation.

Spouse to Spouse to same household to same household is free?

With UR you can, but with United miles, it costs a lot of money to transfer, not worth it.
 Like nafnaf said, you'd be better off selling the miles if you have no use for the individual account.
 Unless your looking to book from that account as you have statues and want to be booked together to get the benefits?   
 Lastly if you like you can always transfer UR to the united accounts and slowly use up the miles in each account, while transferring enough UR points to each united account to book the tickets.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

About time, finally there's some benefit to flying economy, always felt it was a waste of money as I earned 0.
 Wonder if I can get a prorated refund( in other words, credited all those EEQ &EQS) for all the economy flights I took? ;)

Semi business economy plus seating.
New flight Tlv-Las Vegas. 
Credit for econ. Flights.
And a year of violence free flights from dragging people of flights! :)

IME when using a Star Alliance partner even if you use your explorer card, it may not show as the last four digits of the credit card on the United Reservation. For me it showed a different 4 digits, but the Check in agent waved it for me but YMMV. Pretty sure was SQ but unsure.
