    We do freelance design and work well together, but I would never want to work in a place of work with him.  NO WAY!  So, our own business, on our own terms- yes, works very well.

    We don’t work together during the summer or go to the same school during the school year and I’m glad. I work part time at a hardware store and the atmosphere is too dramatic that I don’t think I would enjoy working at either with Fiance. If we had our own business together or worked freelance together I think I would enjoy it.

    We work together but separate tasks. Does that make sense? We are cleaners, we both do the cleanup, then separate –  he does mopping while I do bathrooms. And yes, it’s 7 days a week.

    Dh and I work for the same govt agency out of the same building but do different jobs. He’s out most of the day but I think it’s nice to be able to pop in for an occasional visit throughout the day or work on a project together once in a while.

    We used to work together in a way – both grad students in the same department, so in almost all the same classes, offices down the hall. We don’t anymore and I totally miss being able to send an email and go for a coffee together and leaving work together.

    We work for the same company and in the same department, but have never actually worked together on anything, and that’s the way we like it.  It’s great to be able to carpool when we’re at the same site.

    No, but will in the future.  I will handle paper work and other things for his plumbing business.

    Nope!  I am really glad we don’t.  We work very differently, and we both enjoy having our own areas of expertise.

    We work together and love it. Having the exact same schedule is ideal. The only thing that’s started to bug me is having to stay late when Darling Husband gets caught up but that doesn’t happen too often. So many people have commented on how awful it must be to live and work together but it’s the complete opposite for us. We’re able to fight the 45 minute commute (each way) together and go out to lunch almost every day. During work we hardly see each other so its not like we’re interacting the entire day. He’s on one end of the building and I’m on another. Working together has also allowed us to get away with only having one car. That’s a savings of atleast $300 p/month. It works out perfectly for us and I’ll definitely miss it when he starts working from home soon.
