Why does the congregation not share in the consecrated wine?

You can. You just don't have to.

I choose not to for sanitary reasons. I attend mass with a more elderly crowd and would prefer not to sip on a cup touched by 1000 collective years of coughing. The congregation otherwise does.

you can.  Its up to each person to decide if he/ she wants to partake.  some folks don't due to sanitary concerns.

No one at our church does.

I don't because I usually wear lipstick to Mass (I'm a chick, btw) , and even though the server wipes the rim of the chalice with a cloth, I don't want to gross out the other worshipers. :)

It is common here in the US (to have the option to receive it).

I found a good explanation here: http://catholicism.about.com/b/2008/04/11/reader-question-why-do-catholics-receive-only-the-host.htm

I think of it as making out with the whole congregation .  I'm sure Jesus understands why I pass.

The Parish I went to as a kid did.

The Host without the wine is still considered a full reception of the Eucharist.

It is not required.

I don't because of germs.  When I was a kid, I went to a Eastern / Orthodox / Byzantine rite church with a friend and they offered bread dipped in wine.  I like that option.
