To each their own, but there's a difference between having a desire to hear about your spouse's day at work and wanting seeing where he/she works.

Well, he wouldn't be able to see where I work considering it's in a restricted area. Plus, not a lot of people want to hang out at airports if they don't have to

I'd be very interested in seeing where my SO worked, even if it was 'inconvenient' to see.

LOL.

If it's close to where the house is or where work is, sure, but not going out of my way to do so.

Sort of related to this: It's funny to see people post pics of their kids and pets on the cube wall yet there is no pic of the spouse. Kinda makes you wonder if subconciously they are embarassed of their spouse's looks.

I see them as the same thing. Love is curiosity about your spouse.

I can't take pictures at work either. It's really kind of a bummer.

Unless there's something interesting about it.. it seems weird to visit.

My dad showed my mom his workplace because he works with huge machines that are pretty cool. I don't think my dad ever went in for a work visit day to see a cubicle for my mom though lol.... She has work parties that he can go to ..

My husband occasionally visits me at work because it's fairly casual and it doesn't disrupt the flow. If I worked in a busy corporate office, it might not be quite as appropriate. He's the sort who'd like to see my cube, if I had one, though he's very formal and wouldn't show up uninvited.

I understand why you are interested. Because you love her. I understand completely. Why would a person leave out the one who cares about him/her the most? Why not share those things?

I see where my wife works pretty regularly, I always phone before appearing though. If she's busy the last thing she needs is me making the place look untidy.

She owns the business and I know most of her staff by name (or nickname, i'm crap at names) and getting in isn't an issue as I employed the security... ... and i'm the bosses husband which probably helps.
