Just read a statistic that 92% of married working males admit being in love with a female coworker.

They attributed it to spending so much time together, but my question is if spending time with the opposite sex made you be in love with them, then why aren't they in love with their wives? I'd always heard men fall out of love in a marriage b/c they've spent too much time together, you know the old it's mundane not exciting. So why would these so called "working spouses" (that's what they call being in love with someone at work, in that they act as though you are their spouse at work) still maintain interest in a girl that they see everyday at work?

I would take issue with some of your terminology. Most men I think fantasize about being with a female coworker; that's just normal "daydreaming" for a guy. A marriage is about much more than just having (hopefully) good and ongoing sex. It is, or should be, a true partnership, moving towards goals - maintaining a home, or a household, raising children, pursuing projects and activities together, spending quality time together in many ways. But if a pretty girl dresses provocatively and struts around the office, sure, the men will shift into "fantasy" mode again, for a few minutes anyway. There are frequent questions on this site about couples that want tips on how to keep the sizzle, the spark, in their marriage. Hope this makes some sense.

umm, did the study say that they fell out of love with their wife or didnt love them? Because if it didnt then you are drawing conclusions that the data doesnt support. Which makes your question moot.

sounds like men are dogs. i could see if they said they had a crush or liked a female co-worker...but to be in LOVE with them.

i don't think men know what love is. just because the pecker goes up, that isn't love...

have worked with many women on the job, but never had any emotional feelings for them.
maybe he has too much testostrone....or she has the other kind of hormone rage.
