"Work Spouse" Survey A new study by Redfield & Wilton Strategies reveals that millennials and baby boomers are divided about whether having a "work spouse" is appropriate. A "work spouse" is defined as "a co-worker with whom someone shares a special relationship that can include a bond similar to a marriage."
57% of millennials believe having a "work wife" or "work husband" is inappropriate. Only 40% of boomers and 39% of Gen Z'ers have a problem with it. New York City career coach Roy Cohen says, "I'm not surprised the millennials have a different perspective, because it has a lot to do with generational expectations. They're at a particular inflection point where they're focusing their energy and attention on raising families — they may already be in relationships, whereas Gen Z may not be. For baby boomers, it's sort of like, 'I've been married a long time and this notion of a work spouse isn't going to jeopardize my relationship. It may enhance my life on the job and make me more valuable.'"

My ex-husband and I are fighting over how to reward our children. He is making me look like the bad guy because of a challenge he saw on Tik Tik. He wants to use the 'Can't Say No For 24 Hours Challenge' to reward our children. The challenge says, we as parents, can't say no to anything our children want for 24 hours. I think this is a horrible idea because it opens up Pandora's Box. He says it's a great way to reward our children for doing well in school and in life. What do you think about the challenge? Should we institute it or not?
