You spend more time at work than literally anywhere else on the planet, so it's not surprising when you suddenly stop and realise, you're work married, for better or for worse, to your work wife.

You may have heard people talking about that one person at work they're obsessed with, going for lunches, drinks, WhatsApping at every given opportunity, and yes, this is all happening inside and outside of work hours.

You're started to wonder just who this mysterious person is, and when they took your place. You may even be that person. That, my friend, is a work wife. Or husband, or spouse.

You settle down into your office chair with your morning coffee, and look up, all wide-eyed and ready to begin the day's catch up with wifey, but, what is that you see? An empty chair? Surely it can't be their holiday already, that means you've got to survive four whole days without them? You start to panic, who will you turn to for a 3pm chocolate break?

Looks like your eating that Mars Bar on your own until next Tuesday.

You know they're in a bad mood before they even say anything

All you have to do is shoot them that look and they'll instantly know you're absolutely not here for that two hour meeting or annoying co-worker, not a work even needs to be spoken and you'll understand that your work BFF isn't having a good day.

But all is well, because when you irrationally flip out about your WiFi crashing, your work wife will be right there for you.

You're so in sync it's scary

You'd think there was only a certain amount of times a day you could look up and say 'omg, snap', but you were wrong, the limit does not exist, because when you and your work wife are about, you're so similar, you'll laugh at all the same things and even say the same stuff. It's all part of a marriage, really.

You've moved the relationship to hanging out outside of work

You were nervous at first, but you took the plunge. One asked the other for a drink, and BAM, it's Wednesday night and you're both on the sofa in your dressing gowns eating tubs of Ben & Jerry's , watching TOWIE, and you both aren't quite sure when you got so.... comfortable.

You send each other the most inappropriate stuff at the worst times

You spend so much time together people have started to mix you up

You don't even look a like, but people are so used to seeing you as a duo that people sometimes slip up and get you confused for each other, and you know what? That's ok. At least people are respecting the marriage.
