I go to work with my husband, we usually drive together and I have learned to read one paper on the way into work and another on the way home. This way I don’t have to get an annoying adrenaline rush as the car in front of us breaks and dear hubby is only 4 inches from their bumper- OK it’s really 12 inches away…We also eat lunch together (which he has prepared for us in the morning) 🙂 Yes he is a keeper! We have been married for 28 years. He will drop me off and give me a kiss which some folks make pleasant comments about-my reply is that we are in “like” with each other. We have walked together down the street to a rally at the capitol building 8 blocks away, holding hands-comments such as that really warms my heart to see you two together like that are constant. working in a program that he started out in means I have lots of friends at work with whom I am comfortable in asking help when-beyond my supervisor- I have problem solving to do. I find it convenient ( ie: “Can you get me the cell phone charger? or Do you have $5 for the…?”) and rather nice all in all.
Some folks who work in the same building as their spouse in the Department say if they saw each other at lunch or even drove together they would be in serious trouble. Which side are you on in your observations of married couples in the work place? Do you work with or near your spouse? Are you “in like” with each other or just “in love”?
