(FOX 5 DC) - Given all the time Americans spend at work it’s no surprise that we form close relationships with our colleagues. But do you -- or would you ever -- have a work spouse?
According to Simply Hired, a work spouse is "a colleague you have a strong friendship with, who is the gender you're attracted to, and with whom you have a bond that resembles that of a married couple."
According to a survey by the employment company, 44.4 percent of men and 50.2 percent of women say they've had a work spouse at some point in their careers. Nearly 63 percent of information services and data processing professionals said they have had a work spouse-like relationship with a colleague. Almost 61 percent of marketing employees and over 58 percent of arts, entertainment, and recreation professionals say they've had a work spouse.
