Tickets for Parents Travelling Separately

My wife and I are going to a wedding in a bit, and since we have kids, thought it would be a good idea to go in separate planes.  That way should, in the very unlikely event that the plane crash, only one of us would be lost.  Finding tickets so that our departure and arrival times were similar proved rather difficult.

It may have been the times we wanted to travel, though there seemed to be lots of available seats on the seat chooser.  I tried Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, United, American Airlines, and Price line, but the flights weren’t very good.  I could have chosen me going out on American and my wife going out on United, but due to flights and picking up the kids, I would need to return on United and my wife on American.  This makes getting fares a bit more difficult and the idea of having four one way tickets just didn’t seem like a good idea with the TSA looking over all flights.

If one of the travel sites, was able to accomodate parents desire to travel separately and present the flight possiblilities in an easier manner, I would be a happy person.
