New Playing Field in Dating: Find Your Spouse at The Office!

Run to the water cooler! A study reveals that couples who meet at work have a higher success of getting married than those who meet at a bar or through friends.

Finding Love at Work: Angelina and Brad PittHooking up with a co-worker may just lead to love and marriage.

The next time your boss tells you that there’s no fraternizing with co-workers, tell him that he has no right to hinder you from finding your future spouse. Yea, I said it, spouse. Studies have shown that more office romances lead to marriage compared to relationships that start at a bar or through friends.

It makes sense. You see this person every day. You have the same interests and get to know them before spewing lovey dovey words and ripping off clothing.

What are other major factors? The study, which followed some 2,000 adults, found it to be work stress and time spent with colleagues. Personally, I find the “no dating co-workers” rule odd. Yes, employers want to keep the peace at work, and we all know romance complicates relationships. Our place of work should be friendly, drama free and without the stresses of relationship issues. But relationship stress still occurs in the workplace. If you’re upset at your spouse, you can still bring those feelings to work. The only difference is you don’t have to avoid eye contact at the water cooler.

But numbers don’t lie. Even though 51 percent of people revealed that “the place or situation where you meet someone can affect how successful the relationship is” the success rate of hooking up with a co-worker cannot be denied. In the office, you can get to know someone in ways you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
