    My DH joined my business when we married 10 years ago. It's a work from home based business that also involves extensive travel. So we are together 24/7. Some days good, some days not so good. He gets so weird about travel that I stopped traveling with him and he does most of the seminars and corporate trainings now. I wasn't willing to get strip searched in airports because of his rants over "our constitutional rights" and other nonsense he would start when they wanted to check our luggage and ask why we had 8 laptops with us. [​IMG] But luckily we bought this farm last year so now I have another outlet and go outside and work with my animals when being together with DH for too long is taking its toll.

    I SOOOOO hear you Ruth! We run our business fm home also. Computer Service and Repair. So thankful when DH gets calls out.
    Like now [​IMG] !) I get more done around here. It's good for him also. He is a real people person, highly intelligent, very opininated and 24/7 w/me gets a bit rough. I'm happy hanging out with my critters & the BYC.
    I love the biblical Book of Ruth. Tragic, full of endurance, romantic in it's way, a true story of love both human and divine.​

    My SO retired a few years ago, altho I do still work from home. But it is great being together all the time now. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

    My hubby threatened to fire me, so i quit. He was my "boss" so to speak. I told him off too. LOL. I told him he'd better get a handle on his "work self" or his "home self" isn't gonna have any fun anymore. Next time, if we ever work togeher, i'll run the books, he runs the physical aspects of the job. He's a flooring installer
