What are the rules?

There aren't actually any laws that stop you having an office romance, which is pretty good news.

In fact, according to a survey by XpertHR most companies (73 percent) don't even have a policy in place. 

But that doesn't mean you can go all out. A bit of caution and research is always a good idea.

"Check with your employer in confidence or look in the staff handbook. Because there is no law, policies vary wildly between employers," says John.

So what kind of things might policies stop you doing?

Well they might ban romantic behavior in the office and say that your relationship can't influence your conduct at work. It's unusual for employers to ban office romances all together though.
