Each Time Machine backup is designed to be a backup for a particular Mac.

You appear to be using it as a way to keep your two Macs in sync with one another. Is that the case?

If it's a sync issue Backup solutions like Time Machine are not really the way to go.


What is it you want to keep in sync?

If it's documents, movies etc then you should consider a dedicated sync solution.

Consider:
Dropbox
SyncTwoFolders
Using the public folders on you Mac
There are various apps to sync bookmarks etc.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
