Fable 2 local co-op question: Is it possible to play through the game once with a henchman tagging along, without the second player needing to play through their own game?

My wife and I usually play games like Fable 2 together, with one person playing and the other watching and offering suggestions. Fable 2 seems to allow the unique opportunity for the second player to actually get involved. But what if we don't want to play the game twice? Is the henchman going to quickly get outclassed and become weak and useless? How should we calibrate experience division so we can play the game through once together?
We're worried even if the solution is 50-50 experience, and we have to play longer so each character can level up enough, there will be certain story elements that must be activated by each player separately for them to be of use later in the game.
Don't know if anyone else is in our scenario, but I thought I'd ask and see what others are doing. We don't really have time to play the game twice, and the whole point is to spend time together so each of us playing alone so we can play together later seems pointless.
Thanks for any suggestions anyone has!
