7 Rules for Married Co-Workers
  1. Spouses working together are not appreciated because it may lead to interference and can spoil the relationship as well as career. It is very important for them to keep a healthy balance between home and office which most of them fail to maintain and results in spoiling of either of the two setups.

  • Work problems and matters shouldn’t disturb their home life at all. There are few times when they put work in first place than their relationship every time when not on work, this is because they are still in working mode which might affect you partner. Separate work with your home life always and give time to your spouse. There may be few times when office conflicts are taken home or vice versa. They should leave office work in office and home business limited to home only!

  • Be professional and don’t violate the office rules. Acting as co-workers in office and mingling with others will be comfortable for both of them and the other staff too. Respecting each other’s time and mood will help maintain peace in the relationship.
