Since we work in entirely different fields – no!

But if it were a possiblity, I could absolutely work with my husband.

jldavivc :  Yes and I’ve done it. It works fine with our relationship, but I would imagine it varies from person to person.

We both work from home and sometimes I do work for his company, but we don’t sit side by side all day long or anything. He has a home office and I use my laptop in the living room (I only work part time). We like being together every day but it does change things a bit, I used to work full time outside of the home and when we would see each other there was always that little build up of missing each other, now we are so used to being around each other that we sort of have to force ourselves to make “special” time together, like going on a date to seperate it from the every day. We often run errands or go to appointments alone, and he takes weekly meetings generally so that helps us have a bit of seperation.

jldavivc :  Technically no because we finished 2 completely different degrees. But given the choice, I still would not want to unless under extreme and desperate situations. I just need my own space and actually enjoy our work related conversations when we both get home from work.

We worked in the same department (that’s how we met) but never on a work project together.  I don’t think I would want to actually work together on anything.  We’re still in the sme company, differetn department now, ad it’s nice that we can talk bout work and stuff going on without having to actually work together still.

We did 12 years ago and became really close friends. We worked together a couple years ago and I almost left him. He was my boss both times. Fat nope. We work for the same company now but different buildings and different departments. That is as close as I feel comfortable

I couldn’t work with Darling Husband. The things that make us very different would bother me a ton if I was working with him and I feel like it would be hard to escape work. My inlaws used to work together though and literally spend every minute of every day together and are happy and in love. I think a lot has to do with the individuals.

Oh hell to the No.

I need my space…we see each other almost every day although we live separately.  He also calls me like, 10 times a day. So working with him would be over exposure.  I need some mystery.

I work with my Fiance in the same institution, we have been moved to the same building end of August, there we have separate offices, which are 10 meters away from each other. We rarely see each other apart from lunch, which is always nice to have together as we try to bring it from home. Me or him sometimes come to the other’s office to offer to brew some tea or to fill each other’s water bottle, which is cute. 🙂

I also love spending the commute time (on the bus) with him discussing random things about work and not only. 🙂
