If they won’t allow phones due to confidentiality reasons then I’m sure Facebook is not allowed. Try to make it through the day with no contact. It’s better than risking getting fired.

Couples managed to get through the day for decades before cell phones were invented.

You will too.

TiffLee:  I wouldn’t risk it. Besides, it gives you more to talk about when you see each other if you communicate less during the day– saves room for more face to face quality time vs over the internet/phone.

Unless there’s an emergency, I don’t really see the need to tak to my husband throughout the day. I assume he’s busy at work and so am I. We just save all of that when we get home and talk the good old fashioned way–face-to-face. 

If his work prohibits phone use, there’s a reason for it. I’d just wait until you get home.

TiffLee:  I totally get where you’re coming from.  Me and Fiance have always texted/emailed/facebooked each other throughout the day. But I can’t really think of other options.  Could he get a cheapo phone that loads up quicker for texting you on his break

Fiance and I rarely communicate through the day unless I text him asking him to bring bread home or something. We enjoy coming home and asking about each other’s day.

is it really worth risking his job over? The only thing I can think of is writing a note and leaving it in his work pants or something as a nice surprise… But all the time would be a bit much, maybe just as a surprise if he’s working long hours?

Fiance and I really don’t communicate during the day. Maybe during lunch I’ll send a text if something interesting or hilarious happens, or I need to know what groceries I need to pick up for dinner, but absolutely not during work. I don’t feel it necessary to be connected 24/7 – he’s got his stuff to do, I’ve got my stuff to do, and I like to be productive at work. 

If there’s confidentiality reasons that he can’t have his phone during work, I personally don’t think it’s worth the risk of him losing his job because you want to be connected the whole day. It’s probable that email is monitored, and that Facebook is not allowed.

My husband and I rarely communicate while at work. Unless it’s something that needs to be addressed during the day (going to be home late, need to pick up somethingon the say hone, etc) I’d just wait until you get home. And find things to keep you busy at work.

We don’t communicate a whole lot during the day. We can use our cell phones though so we usually just text. Sometimes we email as well. Call during your lunch break if you really need contact or have lunch together every once and awhile. We have lunch together about once a month.
