Do we need to buy the game again?

My wife plays WoW since forever, and all our computers have the game installed.
She convinced me to pay to play (I have a F2P account for about one year now), but we have this big doubt...
> Do we need to buy the game again?
She have already payed for the software and it sounds weird to buy something that we already have (Ex.: We don't need to buy another "Windows" for each user in the computer)
How do I set my account to pay the monthly value without having to pay for the game again?
Each player must hold their own account with the exception of a parent and child, a parent may register an account and let a minor child play on it.
You don't actually pay for the software, you pay for the license which gives you access to the applicable parts of the game. You pay for the Battlechest (1-80 content), Cataclysm (80-85) and Mists of Pandaria (85-90). Anyone can download the software for free from Battlenet, but in order to play past the F2P content you must pay for a license and the monthly fee.
If you wish to progress past F2P content, you must upgrade your own account to the Battlechest from Battlenet, then Cata and so on. One player, one account/one licencse.
One thing you can do to help reduce the costs for yourselves is the Recruit a Friend account creation process. It will effectively save you one month's subscription fee.
