Affairs at the office are as old an issue as bad-tempered bosses. There are few workplaces around which don't have their share of love stories.

Some offices have even gone to the extent of disallowing colleagues from dating each other, or marrying within the organisation.

What do you think? Should they be encouraged? Have you had a relationship with a colleague? If so, what were the repercussions? Share your experiences.

Or does romance at the office hamper productivity to such an extent that it shouldn't be allowed? Tell us.
