    I actually have, it's not easy, but it's manageable, but also because our tasks don't get mixed, that is we can't do what the other does, otherwise we would probably fight a lot more. One important thing about it, we know each other even better, we are also more aware of more flaws of the other, which, if we didn't work together, we wouldn't know about.

    absolutely, especially if the other person has skills or talents different from yours as this could make for a very harmonious relationship. The important thing is to be very clear up front what the expectations are for each person and how to divide the work load depending on the business of course.Another very if not the most important is for each person to grasp the vision of the business, where do you want to go with it? what are some of the sacrifices each have to make and are they willing to do so. its important do the due diligence and explore this aspect.

    one of the nice things about this type of relationship is you know the other person, and can somewhat know what to expect.

    Igo into business with people I trust. My spouse and family are the first person in mind when it comes to trust.

    I could go into business with my husband but I would hesitate to do it with other family members for fear of problems coming up.

    Spouse yes, family member no.

    I would never go into business with my brother because of our different sense of self. We are like night and day on two different planets.
