I have friends who are in relationships advised me against working in the same company with my Gf. Fearing that this situation will generate more conflicts between us and hence soured our relationship.
Most of them make that statements and they entered the workforce for quite some time.
I believe there is some truth in it. But without the basis of hearing real life experience to convince myself. I don't know whether u guys believe this statement as well.
Not advisable. It affects both working and marital relationship should something sours up.
Example, Gossiper A tells Wifey that Hubby is pcc-ing at the pantry. Wifey feel ashamed cos macam she not doing her job as a wifey. Fact is, Hubby cut his finger while cutting apple so was clutching his index finger and shaking it real hard to relieve the pain.
Go home, hubby suspect wifey having an affair cos somehow wifey no longer has the 'face' to do 'it' with hubby because wifey felt she's inadequate that hubby must resort to PCC-ing in pantry. Hubby became estranged cos at night never get. Go work cannot concentrate. Kept thinking Wifey got E.C.A outside. Wifey on the other hand no longer feel like she's a woman and no longer can concentrate at work.
Both resigned then divorced. Gossiper A act donnoe cos he know he fark up liao.
Many things can happen. It's true that if u cannot tahan each other for 9 hour straight, how can u tahan for 50 years to come?
But do not forget, absence makes the heart grows fonder and loves grows forever.
My former husband asked for me to work in his area because he knew I'm a doer at Boeing. My boyfriend an I worked together for 4 years at his business. I advised him and ran it while he did what he wanted to do. I believe it is a matter of maturity. Also, that the jobs have a clear definition so there's no problem as to whom does what. However, a couple was at one business I managed and it was a nightmare. She bossed him around and he flirted with women, and the tention continued to esculate until one of them was let go. They were very young and had a lot of growing to do.
There are a few married couples that work where I work & some have met there & then ended up getting married. There seems to be no problem whatsoever. There is a guy at my work who I was really good friends with & then we decided to try dating. Never should have crossed that line because we are no longer friends since I told him I didn't think we should date anymore. I will never date another guy from work now due to this lesson learned.
The main problem from an HR point of view is if one is in a higher position than the other (especially if one is the boss of the other). Problems that in a typical workplace would get worked out tend to get escalated, and if your boss chews you out, you go running to your other half to try to get them involved. Real pain in the arse. Still, I have a married couple working for me, and I know a lot of couples have met in the workplace.
I think it depends on the ppl--and yes it can get sticky for B/F-G/F situations if you happen to break up and one has hurt feelings
it also takes a certain level of being self secure if interacting with the public
I grew up in the Dry Cleaning Industry, family business, owned and operated. My parents have worked side by side all their lives. But it doesn't work for everyone. I have seen situations where it didn't work either. I think it all depends on the peoople involved.
