Marrying Your Boss – A Taboo

Marrying your boss is actually even easier than marrying your psychiatrist. You work with them and the relationship is always harmonious. The aura of having greater power than you and having better financial security than you, make them attractive to you.

Getting attracted to a charming boss is the easiest thing to do. You admire them, they inspire you and you crave for their attention and aknowledgment and subconsciously it’s easy to misinterpret this as love or infatuation, and when this is reciprocated, things turn around.
Attraction, if real, can turn into relationships that can be forged into a marriage. But is Marrying Your Boss worth it?

Here are a few points worth consideration before you consider marrying your boss:

  • He/she might already be married.

    Often the personal lives of people are very well hidden behind the professional aura, do a thorough background check through social media and other sources.
  • You are equal in marriage unlike profession

    They don’t get to boss you around in your marriage unlike your profession, so stand up for yourself and don’t let professional life run your personal.
  • Public display of affection-A no no for marrying your boss

    PDA with your boss during work hours will get your colleagues speaking behind your back, and every promotion on your work front will seem like a favor from your spouse.
  • No flirting zone

    Working in the same place as your spouse could be one of the worst things that can ever happen to you. No matter how much you trust him/her, there will come some times that you feel like others are trying to steal your man/woman as you found them the same way and this will turn you into quite a possessive person that will hamper your life on the personal front.
  • The colleague-code of hating the boss

    As clichéd as it may sound, people generally hate their bosses. You might not like your friends turning up against your husband/wife or you might end up hating your life partner too, this is something inevitable. Your boss/husband/wife will never be loved by your colleagues and they will start talking between them without you.
  • The ladder climber snakes

    While some colleagues will hate you, others will use you as a ladder for success. They will make friends with you and go on double dates to get near your husband/wife and use it in turn for promotions, but these are not actual friends.
  • Your actual life might get worse. 

    Here is the tricky part. You will have to depend on your boss’s stand and their emotions if things ever do get bad between both of you. If they’re upset with you, they could behave bad or ignore you at work. And you would in return do the same outside work. And a petty fight could turn into a game of egos for retaining the dominating hand in marriage.
  • The accidental mash-up

    You may slip up office gossip or harsh comments if they come across you to your partner, who’s your boss. And as much as both of you want to separate office and romance, your boss may still make decisions or judgments based on the things you hear and say.
