It is very common couples work together, especially in small businesses and family businesses. But working with your husband has its pros and cons.
The worst part is when home or work problems affect their other side of life. However, when there is a very strong professional synergy between the two, the results are often very positive.
If you work or think about working side by side with your husband, here are some tips for getting the most out of this situation without harming your work or personal life.
When you are home, you both need to rest and be free from work while you are away. So, agree not to talk about work or work at home outside office hours.
If you need to work or discuss work at home, try to do so for a limited time or time and also, if possible, do so in an appropriate place in your home? like an office or study room? never in your room.
Another tip is to not let the professional relationship cool the connection between you. Both should strive to maintain their caresses, affection and intimacy even when there is a problem at work.
To keep you from running out of business and at the end of the day running out of things to talk about, or even getting tired of, talk about trying different activities together. Invest in a hobby, a physical activity and take walks together so that you find yourself in situations different from everyday work situations. This will bring them closer and keep their interest in the relationship.
At work, you should treat yourself with professional respect, as coworkers. This kind of attitude should be encouraged and practiced to avoid problems between you, to avoid embarrassment towards other colleagues and also so that your relationship does not hinder the progress of the work.
Therefore, you should not kiss, flirt or engage in any intimate behavior within the company. Of course you don't have to be cold, but with the courtesy and kindness that you would treat any other co-worker.
The general golden tip is no mix work and personal life. This is not always possible, but trying is always possible. So make sure you don't take work home and work home. So you do not allow professional life to interfere with personal life and vice versa.
