No. Whatever you guys decide to do after the game with your winnings is your business. As long as, as you say, you are not playing against each other any diffirently than you would play against anyone else, this is perfectly acceptable.
My husband and I have played at the same tables many times (and of course it's a given that we split the profits, whether he likes it or not ), but we play just as ruthlessly against each other as we would anyone else. Even the people at the table will say, "Damn, that was harsh!" lol
