    The only thing surprising to me here is people got fired. This type of crap is rampant in LE. I've seen it lead to promotions more often than disciplinary actions. Biology and human nature trump policies every time the two come into conflict.

    It sounds like the two who were terminated were fired for lying to investigators, not for the affairs themselves.

    My psycho ex was my MD PhD classmate. Never again.

    Now happily dating a woman who has nothing to do with medical practice or scientific research. It's fantastic.

    It's too easy to paint with a broad brush, imho. I've seen many happy relationships that came out of the same work environment.

    There are bound to be staggering numbers either way.

    I've seen people survive lying in an investigation too.

    First rule of professional life -

    Don't dip your pen in company ink.

    Second rule of professional life -

    If you do dip your pen in company ink. Don't fucking talk about.

    Third rule of professional life -

    If you talk about it, don't fucking lie about it.

    ___

    But if you follow Rule 1, you'll never have problems. Kinda like Rule 1 of guns. It's always fucking loaded, act like it.

    Those who haven't been to the inkwell shouldn't opine about things they have not experienced. Just sayin'. There's what you know and what you think you know...and what you've heard. If you've gone down that road, then your experience is what it is.


    Lotta people pontificating and bloviating.

    You can successfully start a relationship with co-workers, BUT, you both need to be adults about it. If things don't work out, you are still going to have to see each other on a regular basis.

    With that in mind, one has to realize work is not a jump 'em and dump 'em single's hookup joint. Nor is it the junior high romance drama show. Unlike casual relationships outside, there are actual consequences should things turn nasty. People will lose their jobs, and there may even be harassment and similar complaints.

    So, while it can be done, often times it's better to just skip it.

    I'm not saying work relationships can't do well. I'm saying work relationships where one or both parties are cheating on existing spouses tend to not go well. People get fired, workplace violence occurs, etc. If you're going to cheat, doing it at work compounds the negative blowback.

    My wife has been a dispatcher for about 5 years, I致e been doing this job for over 20. My wife was a bit naive when she decided to go into this profession, I told her everyone fucks everyone. She was shocked that I wasn稚 kidding. Thankfully I haven稚 dipped my pen in the company ink.
