Did you ever find a solution to this? I am having the exact same issue and struggling to find a solution.
I have a Mac Mini server that I am running Lion Server on. I created a group of file shares for a set of users all on Windows 7. Any file I create on the Windows machines and copy to the file shares have default permissions of 600. I want to change that for each folder so that users can shares files back and forth with one another.
I have messed around with ACL's and haven't gotten that to work. I tried Sandbox also.
There has to be some kind of way to get this to work..

I got rid of my WIndows box by reloading it with Ubuntu. Probably not what you wanted to hear. As you can see I didn't get any help from the 'community'.

I was able to finally get it working using ACL's. I found several people referencing an app called Sandbox. It's old but still works.
Basically, using Sandbox and ACL's, you can set a folder so that a user or group will auto inherit certain permissions to the contents of that folder. So, with your situation, you could have just set the folder so that you and your wife's user account (or a group) would inherit permissions to the contents of the directory. If you use 'ls -l' to list the contents of the file and its permissions, I still have very low permissions (600, so, rw for owner), but since the other accounts inherit the correct permissions, I was able to modify the files and such the way that I needed to.
Obviously, you don't need this anymore, but, thought I would share the solution in case someone else comes across this. This article tells how to turn ACLs on. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4149
The command is:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.smb.server AclsEnabled -bool YES
