Would you able to maintain just a work relationship with him in the office or would it be difficult to do so?If some misunderstanding creeps up..would you drag it home and spoil yoour married life or leave it at the office?

My husband has never been my boss and I don't believe that I would be able to maintain a relationship like this . I would end up taking any misunderstandingss we had back home with us and would spoil our married life for sure . I believe this is why it is harder to work with someone you know as a friend with them your boss because it always causes problems either with one person not be able to say how they really feel for fear of hurting the friend or being walked all over because the friend expects more from you because you are friends .

I myself could not work with my husband unless I was the boss! I have worked with several different couples in an office atmosphere. Sometimes it worked for them. Sometimes it didn't. There were times when they would shut the office door and you could still hear them yelling at each other. Not very professional. Oh and I take everything personally.

Oh that would never work. My husband and I have been co-workers before and we owned a business together , but never with one of us in charge of the other. I think it would be hard to leave at work, especially if things went badly. Just my opinion !

I have actually been in this situation. It was very easy for the two of us to do. We were able to leave work at work and focus on ourselves at home.

I have had this happen to me. He was my boss and then we got married. IT was awful. We started fighting all the time. Any fights from home were dragged into work, and anything from work was dragged home. No surprise it ended in divorce.

It would make me go nuts, I love it when my husband goes to work and I have free time between when he leaves and when my daughter gets home from school. We have worked at the same place and he drove me nuts then, always seeing what I was doing and trying to protect me from his precieved evils.
