Re: Married couples who work together
My husband and I are in the process of starting to work together. He has been working in his own business for about 18 months and I currently work part time for him.
The other thing with us, is the office is home based, so he is in the house most of the day unless he is visiting clients. I do believe we can work together without driving each other crazy. The main thing for me, is that we each get on with our jobs and treat the other as we would do any other person we would work with, except of course for the added benefits.
I have only ever worked in small businesses that have been run by a husband and wife team, as well as growing up with my parents working together in their business, so for me, it is normal.
It really comes back to respect, and if you have staff, don't bring your marital woes to work and go out of the office to have your barneys.
