If you could work with your spouse, would you?

I am lucky I get to work with my spouse and love it! I have been working with my spouse now for a few years and it is really cool. We do all kinds of handy person work for people, we clean their yards and do carpenter work, and anything in between. We started off working together from the start cause we like to spend time together. And it turned out to be a real blessing cause there is a lot of work that would take longer if there is only one person, and we get it done quicker when we work together. So my question is would you work with your spouse if you could?

I have done this with my spouse. We ran a business together. For us this just didnt work out. Im sure our situation isnt how it typically turns out because our marriage isnt the best so we just fight to much. I think if you can manage to enjoy spending time together and have good enough communication between the two of you to run a business your marriage must be very strong. Theres so many benifits to working together. Congrats for your good relationship with your spouse it isnt easy.

It isn't for everyone but it is really a good thing that we get along so well. I am not saying it is always smooth but there is more good then bad. We love what we do and enjoy seeing things we might want to do to our yard or house. We do get a lot of materials from the people we work for. When they buy a plant we usually end up with at least a starting of the plants. We also end up with some of the scrap wood and some of that will make birdhouses, doll houses, trash cans, and much more. We both love to build things like that we can sell them on ebay.

I would love to work with my future wife, I'm not married yet. Some may think that there is a possibility of conflicts arising but as to how I see it there is much advantage than disadvantage. It could help you more understand each other and make your relationship strong.
