Those of you who've heard about this know what I mean. How many of you are or have been an office wife or office husband? I'm not talking about having an affair or real relationship, but just the subtle partner-like treatment and expectations that go along with this phenomenon.

I have never been one the past, but I think my boss is starting to act like this with me now. He already does it with another coworker of mine, and has stated to others that he prefers to work with females.

Anyways, tell us your stories.

Me and co-worker have been mistaken as a couple in the past when I use to work in an office environment.

One day, my co-worker announced her pregnancy (by her BF) and staff around the office started congratulating me

Aww that was a real relationship though (just kept secret), not what I'm talking about. What I'm talking about is not a relationship. It's more subtle than that.

IMHO, being an Office Wife or Office Husband is asking for trouble when there are SOs involved. Why even go down that path?

I am an Office Mom or an Office Older Sister though.
