    Do any of you guys or girls work with you wifes, husbands, BFs or GFs? My wife sometimes nags me about getting out there and working but i think she would drive me crazy!:dizzy:

    Major Tom & her hubby seem to have a pretty good system. My wife works the office, no manual labor though. Its sometimes tough on our relationship just w/ her in the office. I'd say this falls in the business w/ family category - stay away from it!

    My wife worked with me ONE time. She then discovered she was allergic to fire ants. OUCH. She did try, though.

    Wife is a great support and is helping with the record keeping end of the business. It helps a lot to have her working with me, as this way both of us are helping the family, and both take pride in the company.
