A friend recommended Spotify and we jumped right in because we were under the impression that you could listen to Spotify on up to 5 different devices. That part I've figured out (sort of, but that's not the issue). What I'm trying to understand is that when you say "5 devices" you mean 5 but only one at a time? The reason we were so excited is because my husband likes his music, my son likes his and I like mine - but we're apart all day and wanted to enjoy our own playlists. Am I understanding correctly that we can only listen one at a time? or am I simply not setting us up correct?
Thanks in advance...

Correct: only one device at a time. If you begin streaming from a second device, the music will automatically stop on the first device.
The reason being that the account is intended for a single user, not as a family account. So you'd need a separate account for each user, which will also allow you to maintain your playlists separately.
There isn't currently an option for a family subscription deal, unfortunately. But it has been been suggested by other users, so it's worth adding your own voice: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Discount-Family-Subscriptions/idi-p/2275
