In some circles — circles like people who go to offices to work, people to whom I do not relate — there is such a thing as a work spouse. It’s the person you’re closest to from 9-5, maybe the person in the cube next to you with whom you share your most brilliant musings via gchat, or the one you go to lunch with each and every day, or the one with whom you share a mutual boss-hatred.

This person can play a big role in your life, and I’m wondering how many of you out there have one. And if you do, how does your real-life partner feel about it?
