A new study has found that with more and more Americans? social lives increasingly revolve around the workplace, the number of couples who work together either in their own jointly run businesses or for the same employer is growing. Conducted by Cornell University's Employment and Family Careers Institute, the study also showed that despite the taboo against workplace romances in management and human resources circles, there are many benefits for co-working couples and their employers. In addition to more flexible schedules among co-working husbands and higher salaries among co-working wives, there are also less tangible but still very significant benefits such as greater commitment to employers and a more equal priority being given wives? careers.
