      Which of the two outweighs the other?

      If your partner's a gossip it hurts when it gets back to you the wrong way round

    You may tire of seeing so much of them but you'll save on gas by carpooling!

    pros: you get to be with them every day. 
    you can do things together all the time (same schedule, etc)
    you have the same circle of friends most of the time

    cons: same as pros. only that you'd look at it the negative way. like you'll get bored being with them everyday.
    you do things together all the time that even if you don't feel like doing so because you have had an argument or something
    you have the same people who knows you that might be a cause of argument or issues.

    it really depends on how you look at it. some friends i know don't want to be in a relationship with a workmate

    Think about it - for thirty seconds. Then walk away. If your relationship/infatuation doesn't work then one of you will be on the search for a new job before too long. Recriminations could follow it it's allowed to go far and doesn't work. Sometimes it's worked. I've worked with people who met at work, or who were already married/a couple when they were recruited, but bosses don't encourage it. In the case of two couples I knew she kept her maiden name on the payroll, and they got on well. And both couples took early retirement/voluntary redundancy together.

      I have worked with couples and still do, in several places where their relations didn't seem to affect their productivity. Why do some bosses raise a storm in view of this?
