Q: Getting romantically involved with a co-worker?

In most companies and schools in China, do they warn you about not doing this?

Actually, if your boss discovers the relationship, it can decide to terminate your contract or both of your contract, as this kind of behavior is often considered not appropriate in a company.

Naturally, if you're the boss of the company, the rule doesn't apply Smile

Typically never a good idea.

On the other hand, how do you think most married couples end up together?

My boss doesn’t care about that.
But I doubt it's a good idea. To see each other 24hours a day? That's too much...

Whether it's allowed or not, why are you even considering it? If it doesn't work out, you'll have to see them all the time. That never ends well.

When it doesn't work out, then it becomes the "whoever has the most pull with the company gets to keep his/her job"

My current boyfriend was originally my coworker. Before him, I never dated coworkers but I really liked him when I saw him and the feeling was mutual. Our company doesn't fire people for dating, they just make us work at seperate branches of the company. However, he and I kept it a secret and kept things professional. While at work, we treated eachother as friends/coworkers. No PDA or anything. While away from work, we did whatever we wanted of course! The key is to be mature enough to keep things at bay while at work. Its inappropiate to kiss and carry on in the workplace regardless of the company's rules so simply don't do it. If you are both arguing, keep that argument in your home. While at work, be neutral. While in public you shouldnt argue with your spouse anyway regardless of whether you work together or not, its rude, disrespectful and downright ridiculous. I see it very often here in China and cant understand why people do it but anyways I digress....sorry...what i'm saying to you is that its fine so long as you exercise caution. You need to of course gage whether this person is worth it. You can't date several coworkers, if this doesnt work out then thats it for the work pool. You can't show PDA at work and you have to understand that you will see eachother ALL the time. If you think it over and want to do it, then talk with your person of interest and see if they are.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
