No, I never had a "work husband', or a "work wife", for that matter. I've had colleagues that I felt close with, some that I've stayed in touch with. I had an affair with a former colleague, but it wasn't someone that I worked closely with.
As an aside - I really dislike the term "work spouse". Perhaps I'm not quite understanding it correctly, since I know of no equivalent in my own language.
What are you getting at, UnexpectedSong? Any specific reason for this topic/question?
