Could you work with an ex spouse or ex significant other?

I have been working with an ex boyfriend from a long time ago..People I work with can't believe we get along so well and said they couldn't do it. We didn't break up on bad terms plus...hearing his life story...Karma beat the hell out of him.

Good point, if it was a nasty break up it probably wouldn't work so well.

I dated a guy for quite a while, then we went our separate ways. I would see him out and about plus we attended the same church. Although we were both married at that time, it was very awkward when we would have to greet one another.

Well glad he quit, nobody should have to feel like that at work.

This one is completely harmless and we joke everyday. I do have one that is completely banned from working where I do for safety reasons.

I could, but I wouldn't.

Never gave it any thought. Never had an ex, and my wife and I work in different fields. I'd probably say no though since it might feel awkward. (Both for us as well as co-workers) It would also depend on how long ago the breakup took place.

I hear other people say that too.
