I might be getting a job at my husband’s company.  They have certain rules about it, like I can’t approve any of his trips (because I would be in the finance department) but I doubt we would have much interaction overall.

I’ve worked with/for my husband.  It’s fine but I don’t think I’d ever want to run a business with him.  We have REALLY different management styles and I think we would clash too much. 🙂 Plus, I like coming home and having stuff to talk about (when we worked together it was like we didn’t come home with any news or interesting convo. at the end of the day because we had both knew everything already!)

Oh we’ve worked in the same office.  I was unemployed for a while and took a job in his company.  Wow, was it ever awkward!

He was essentially my boss’ boss’ boss so we were very careful to be seen with each other.  Mind you everyone knew we were engaged and everything, but it was better to avoid one another so it didn’t look like I was receiving any special favours. 

I loved spending lots of time with him but it was difficult.

Yes, its how we met, he is a vet and I’m a vet tech and we worked at the same practice.  For about 2 months after we started dating we kept it quiet and nobody had any idea.  We really were proud of how we could be professional at work.  Occasionaly I’ll work relief where he works, but for now we work at different places.  We are definitely looking forward to working together again when he starts up his own practice.  Its not always easy, we take any criticism from others much harder than if you weren’t involved with the other person, but other than that I absolultely loved working together and getting to eat lunch together every day.

We worked together for about four months and I loved it! We actually never got tired of eachother or ran out of things to say – it was amazing!

I think it’d kill us. I’m always impressed when people say they can work with their SO…I really don’t think we could do it!

NO!!! We thought about me applying at the same place while we were job hunting. I’m so glad I didn’t. There’s too much possible drama for me.

We’ve never worked together, but eventually I’ll be helping him with his billing… but that’s more as a favor than an employment situation.

Yeah I worked for him for his grand opening and renovations and wanted to kill him. I wanted to fire him as a client seriously.  Oddly enough after I pulled the event off flawlessly and have shown him what I can do otherwise he just tells me what he wants and I bring him ideas.  Unfortunately he is also going to be my client for our wedding and i have pitched ideas over and over and over again and he’s finally agreed on one TODAY! lol i’m sooo excited… he is definitely my most unagreeable client and i want to kill him most days but he’s too cute 😀

PS….I work in the office and when he comes in to get his paperwork to go on the road we say goodbye to each other…and well you know how you love to say goodbye at home when your fiance/husband/wife boyfriend/girlfriend…have I covered them all….is about to leave for work right! Well there are some people who dont like us (jealous!) and wrote a letter to my boss and his boss ( the drivers have one boss and the office people have a different boss) about us kissing but they never left their name!!!
