For me typically 2 fronts to 1 rear, wife...not so much.

Yes, that sounds correct. the rears will wear "much faster" than drum brake shoes. I usually just replace fronts and rears at the same time now. also, here in the salt/rust belt, I just replace them every three years whether they need it or not. I have found that the rear disc pins/pads/slides seem to suffer from rust worse than the fronts and like to stick.

Buy one of these and really see what it is:

If you are lucky, you can check with wheels installed.

Some Mfgr's bias the brakes to have the rear engage before the front to minimize nose down dip.

This 👆.. invest in a dial mic or vernier calipers and check them yourself. I'd consider replacing between 4 ~ 6mm myself because I don't want to gouge my rotors. How many months/miles that 2mm translates to just depends on your driving.

For me, two sets of rear pads will last about the same length of time as one set in the front. I think it is some amount of brake bias and some amount of traction control system design. I don't remember the percentage, but I understand that most of the vehicle stopping ability is provided by the front brakes. I suspect my rears may be undersized for the vehicle size or driving conditions.

Upwards of 75%. When you break all that momentum and vehicle weight shifts forward. Your selection of tires plays a big part in your ability to stop also. You can have the best brake pads money can buy but if you got bargain bin tires, your tires become the limiting factor in braking performance.
