It’s hard to go to a job day-in and day-out with nothing to look forward to.

People are resilient, and they find joy where they can.

Sometimes that joy is in the bond they form with others in the same situation.

Sometimes you spend so much time together you start to bicker like an old marry couple–and you know each other that well too.

It can make work nice, and comfortable. But it can also cause trouble if you’re not careful.

Here are 10 times people fell in love with their “work wife.”

1. Deep breaths. Infatuation fades.

It’s always fun when it’s new and exciting.

Honestly, figure out a way to lock it down.
Because if she can make Mondays not terrible, you need her in your life forever.

15 years ago I had a friend with a deep and abiding love for her “work husband”–the first time I ever heard the term.
