I actually met my wife here at the office. We belong to the same department. And now that we are married, I still think it's great that I'm with her here. We've been together now for more than 2 years, and its great. Though we belong to the same department, we have different projects. What's nice is that when I miss her, and really need to talk to somebody, I can always come to her area and invite her for coffee, or maybe just a hug. I feel like I'm the luckiest person with the greatest job because I won't be away from my wife. The key is to devote some time for yourselves. What we do is, she gets out once or twice a week to meet with her friends, and I do the same with the boys. That way, we balance our relationship and each other coz we get to talk to other people and do the things that we want away from each other. Hope I said something worthy.

That's nice to hear! Good thing that you have a harmonious relationship with your wife when you're at the office. Coz mostly, if a couple is working at the same department some issues arise that lead to arguments. Your case is a different scenario coz your relationship started in the office. But, what if you're already working in a certain office and your wife would tell you that she wants to work in the same office, do you think it would still be the same?

I think it would still be the same. I this depends a lot on the people involve. My wife and are are pretty great together. Though we don't agree on all things, and we still have a lot of issues, we do support each other and will stick together no matter what. But then again, it really depends on the circumstances in the office.

Well that was the situation before and eventually my wife decided to transfer work not for any reason but I think its best that it remains that way. it is really hard that you always see each other and there are times that you either bring home the friction or vice versa.

Yeah right, that's some of the disadvantages if you're working at the same office with your partner.

I look to going to work as a way to getting away from my husband.. So definetly not, i would want to see my husband everyday at work.. what woud you take two cars and act like you didn't know each other... I think that is funny.. Thats what i would di if my husband worked in the same office as me.. I would just act like i didn't know my husband to be honest and i would tell him to act like he didn't know me.. I still think that this it funny.. Or i would find another job.. I want to see my husband when i get home from work not at work..

Yeah right, I guess seeing your husband 24/7 will certainly result of not missing him, lol!

Definitely not! I would get tired of seeing that same person all day, everyday. Going to work with them, coming home with them, sleeping and waking with them. I would most definitely become sick of them! Time apart from one another, in my opinions, keeps relationships strong. That way, while you are both an important aspect of each others' lives, you also each have your own agendas and such; you are each still individual, independent people with your own lives. I'm somewhat hesitant for using them as an example, for fear of appearing of boastful, but my parents have been happily married for more than 25 years, and they're still completely in love with each other. I think it's all due to the fact that all these years, they both have their own separate jobs and so they only see each other for a few hours late at night, when they're both back from work. Since they don't see each other for most of the day, they can't get sick of one another. The circumstances that have kept them apart (work), I think, in the end, is what keeps them together.

I agree with you. Seeing your husband every minute will limit your chance of mingling with other people. It doesn't mean that if you are married you'll be losing your individuality. But, of course, it depends on the preference of the couple if they'd like to work in the same office.
