Work is a necessary part of life, and it’s a huge blessing when we love our work and our workplace. And, naturally, we spend a lot of time there. However, whether we realize it or not, there are certain habits that we carry out at work that can end up hurting our marriage. Here are 5 of the most common(in no particular order):
1.We never reference our spouse when talking to colleagues and/or fail to wear our wedding ring at work.
There are certainly parts of our marriage that should be kept private, but the fact that we are a married person is not one of them. This should be very public. And, we make this known by wearing a wedding ring and referencing our spouse in conversations. This probably seems like a no-brainer, right? However, I hear from too many couples where this is not the case. Some spouses may feel like they can have more of an edge at work by presenting themselves as unmarried. Whether or not this is true in the workplace, this is unethical and detrimental to one’s marriage. When we fail to let our co-workers know that we are married, we blur the communication boundary lines. And, this opens us up to some compromising conversations and situations. So, it’s always best to be honest and honor our spouse by making it crystal clear that we are married and completely committed to our spouse in every way.
