I know there is already a thread about this topic. I read each response and as a BS was as most of you did not like the reference.
So last night I asked WW if she had heard the tear "office spouse". She said she had. OK heart beat increased a bit. I asked at your current job, she said no, how about the job you worked at with POS? "YES" Then I asked the question I pretty much already knew "Is this what they referred to you and POS?" and of course the answer was "YES"
Mother F er!
I have always stated that it is likely that others new of their A, since as I find out now they were inseparable. Well I think the fact that others were calling them office spouses make it clear that others at least suspected something was going on.
So this lead to another talk just to verify that we are both clear on boundaries going forward. I not saying she cannot have work friends, but no lunches alone with a man ever! No personal talk about spouses unless it is to say how amazing they are. Fortunately WW agrees with what we talked about. If only we were fully equipment on our Wedding day for this I really think everyone on that day should receive "Not Just Friends" as a required reading.
