It isn't so much the legal aspects that can cause the problems, although they certainly do append if your relative positions are unfavorable. It's more the discomfort of having to work alongside someone in the event of the inevitable breakup. Been there, done that. Don't want to do it again... :(

Hmm, well I think it's kinda fun, if you keep it in complete secrecy.  And you're not really going to create any drama in the future.

Perhaps you will not, but your quiescent squeeze may become a bean-spilling drama queen.

Mind you, it can work out. I went out with a work colleague; we were engaged within a month, married in three. That was over 30 years ago. But there was nothing clandestine about it; though our friends were convinced otherwise, as it all happened so quickly.

It can work, as Mike points out. I had a nine-year relationship on the back of a workplace hook-up. ;)

Aren't you supposed to be on hiatus from this massive time sink?
