Totally inappropriate. I would be completely upset if my FI had one too. I see a lot of that inappropriateness in my office though. It really bothers me.

can someone explain in more detail what a work spouse is? Is it basically a relationship with someone at work?

My fiance calls his friend his “work wife”… I know her and she’s awesome and I hang out with her sometimes too, he also sometimes calls her “a cool guy with long hair” so I’m not too worried

My FI jokes that he has a work fiancee, but she’s almost 20 years older than him and he just jokes about it cause they’ve got eachother’s backs work-wise. I guess it depends on the context but I am in no way threatened by this.

there is a line that should never be crossed in a friendship. That crosses it.

How timely.  One of my old friend’s husband just left her for his work spouse.   Totally inappropriate. 

They all hung around together, but then the “work wife” left her husband and the rest happened a few weeks later.

That’s kind of messed up. Being the jelous type i don’t think i would like my fiance having a “work wife”. Luckily he works construction so there aren’t really any women around him at work and the ones that are usually more on the manly side.

I saw that show too!  That girl was totally clueless to what was going on…. and honestly, if she felt like she was being abused, she needed to get professional help instead of running to this other guy….. but I digress.

I do think it’s playing with fire.  As soon as you begin looking for emotional support or validation from a person of the opposite sex (or another member of the same sex if you’re gay), then you’re beginning to cross into the land of emotional cheating and that’s next door to physical cheating.

Totally inappropriate. It’s emotional cheating at the very least.
