It sort of is a work place.
Our choir director left his wife for the new organist. He is 60 and she is 32. This happened over a year ago. Both are leaving, and they are spiritually in love.

My workplace romance ended up becoming my husband of 10 years (and counting) and the dad to my son (and soon to be daughter).

Furthest thing from a bad decision I've ever made.

Most of the women I dated were co-workers. The one I married 31 years ago was a co-worker. Worked together for 2 years before we started dating.....dated for another 2 years as we were co-workers, and were co-workers for the first 7 years of our marriage.
Most folks don't try and hide it. I'm in a company of 120 employees now, and there are 6 people who are married, dating or living together (not as roommates) that I know of.

It certainly makes HR nervous because they can't win.......if a relationship blows up, it can have an impact on the workplace and the company gets sued......and if they step in....the company gets sued.

I married my boss and we've been married 13 years and together 18.

At the company where we worked, MORE people than not dated there. It was an entertainment company and we were all of "marriage" age and had no time to date outside of work.

DH & I started dating while working together nearly 24 years ago. We continued to work together for 5+ after we got married. Our career paths diverged for a number of years, but for the past 11 we have had our own business and work together every day. Many people ask how we can do that, but the truth is the years we DIDN'T work together were the hardest as we struggled to keep in touch with each other's day-to-day lives.

Yup, another office romance here, we've been together for 16 years and married for 12. DH was actually my boss, only our closest friends knew we were dating. As a matter of fact, when we decided to get married, people at work were shocked to find out we had been dating for so long.

Well, my husband started his own business and, technically, I work for him. I guess I'd better say there's a love affair in my work place.

There was a scandal in my office awhile ago. It was probably the early or mid 80's, a guy who was the son of a top executive, full of himself, started "seeing" an 18 year old shy file clerk who was obviously smitten with him. She got pregnant, he denied it was his. She got a paternity test and it was his. She left the company, he transferred to another office. I believe she got child support but he never had anything to do with his son. She eventually married someone else.

Fast forward 15 or 20 years, word gets back to the office that he was killed in a car accident in another state where he was living. Obituary talks about his wonderful wife & children, of course nothing about the other child. One of my coworkers knew the girl who had the baby, not a close friend but knew her from her area. My coworker decided to get in contact with her to tell her, turns out she didn't know. She mentioned that she hadn't talked to her son much about his bio dad, her husband pretty much raised him. Don't know how that ended, if she ended up telling her son that his bio dad died.

That was our experience too. 7 years married working at the same company, including 3 years where we worked side by side. Other than doing each others Christmas shopping, in that 3 years were together 24/7/365.
I left for another company 24 years ago.....a competitor..... it took a few years to adjust. Most interesting thing working in a competitive business with your spouse working at your main competitor.......if I want to know what my company's secret plans are, I ask my wife. If she wants to know what her company's secret plans are, she asks me. Usually our sales people are out talking to the same clients as her sales people in advance of any announcement of big secret projects, so those secret projects aren't as secret as they think.

I actually had two workplace romances.

The first was a total disaster, and I regret it to this very day. He turned out to be one of the cruelest people I've ever known. What a mistake!!!

The second was with my DH! I was very leery at first, based on the disastrous outcome of the first relationship.....but went for it anyway, haha!

That was 16 years ago Happily married for almost 13 years now!

At my job there are more men cheating with female co-workers than dating/marrying them! One has been cheating with the same co-worker for the past 11 years and thinks no one knows about it!!
