Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
If you have purchased Pages for the iPad, you can install it for free on all your iPads, iPods touch and iPhones, but you have to purchase Pages for Mac because your Mac uses a different operating system that can't run iPad applications.
To purchase Pages, open App Store and purchase it. If you don't have the Mac App Store on your Mac, you will have to purchase iWork '09 on a disc

Pages purchased from the Mac App Store can be installed on all Macs using the same Apple I.D.
Pages purchased as part of iWork demo or download with serial number, or on DVD can only be installed on one Mac unless it is a Family licence in which case it can be installed on 5. But this is an honesty system, relying on you to do the right thing.

My husband and I share a Mac laptop but have our own user id's. He purchase Pages for me on his user id but I can't run it under mine. Is there a way to "share" it or would I have to buy it too- or just always log onto his id when I need to use it?

The Apple I.D. is only used for purchases from iTunes and the Mac App Store so should not be confused with your User log-in.
Just use the one Apple I.D. (his) when you install and you'll be fine.
Uninstall it and reinstall it "for all users", which was an option given to you at the time.
