Do You Have a Work Spouse?

The topic of the Wall Street Journal story I was in Wednesday (read my blog “Hey, I’m in the Wall Street Journal!”) is getting plenty of attention. The WSJ ran a story called “Does Your Work Wife Get a Valentine?”

According to a survey by Captivate Network, nearly two-thirds of workers have, or have had, a “work spouse”.  That’s someone you share a special, yet platonic, relationship with at your office.  Today, CNN Headline News followed up on the WSJ story.

  1. My answer was “yes” to your question about whether to give a work-place man or woman a card or a gift. But I’ll add these qualifications: If the giver is secure in his/her marriage; if the gift/card is not intimate, but it simply thanking the person for your kind regard for them at your work-place; and IF the giver’s spouse is fully aware and in agreement.
