Blurring the lines: Exploring the work spouse phenomenon
Despite widespread media attention, the work spouse phenomenon has not garnered much attention among organizational scholars. This manuscript aims to conceptualize the work spouse as a unique interpersonal workplace relationship worthy of scholarly attention. We provide theoretical framing using boundary management, methodological considerations, and a novel research agenda, encouraging more work in this area.
