@BrideToBe14:  I’ve heard it before but I don’t have one because I work with six other women!

@BrideToBe14:  One of my work friends got a new girlfriend in May and when he introduced me he told her I was his work wife. I laughed but it made me uncomfortable lol I get what he meant though he was just being a weirdo. I think of him more as a work girlfriend than a husband because he is just as dramatic about a girl and always comes to me with his problems. haha

@BrideToBe14:  I’ve definitely had a work wife! We always looked out for each other in the work place, got each other food/coffee. I was devastated when she left. But I guess it doesn’t really count because we became really good friends due to our work relationship!

DH had a “work wife” until she moved away. I sort of do, but we work in different departments and only talk maybe once a week. DH still calls him my work husband though.

@BrideToBe14:  Never heard it put that way before but that makes sense.  Creepy though!

My VP refers to my direct manager as my work husband.  He and I co-manage a team, and we’re together basically all the time.  My husband actually likes him a lot (probably because he’s in his late 50s and non-threatening, ha!)

We have two members of our team that are CLEARLY work husband/wife and it’s adorable ha

We say “work spouse” here. My MOH and I call ourselves work spouses. 🙂
