Hi all. I have heard about someone who is a key worker spending a night at the house of someone they are working with daily. The person they visited lives alone.
Is this wrong or not. Opinions please

Depends. What is your role in this. Are you the keyworkers manager.. what are your concerns.

This is not myself, I have just heard about it and wonder if they are doing anything wrong. They both work together in retail, so are close all day. One worker has gone to the other workers house (who lives alone) for drinks after work

Why is this bothering you? They have been together all day, I'm sure spending the night together carries no extra risk to them or anyone else.
They should be more concerned about the busybodies they know 🙄

I just wonder where we draw the line with all this. Is it just down to good old common sense

I couldn’t get upset about this, they work together anyway (permissible under law) so extending that time outside of work seems harmless enough to me. It may not be within the spirit of the law but considering the person lives alone and we’re on the cusp of a MH crisis..

They spend all day together so I doubt it makes much difference to spend an evening together. I'd just let them get in with it, I definitely wouldn't be causing them any problems by reporting them or whatever it is you may be tempted to do.

Either this affects you or it doesn’t. What’s your role here?

My wife is the person in question, we have been separated for 3 months. She has been living with a friend. I found out she wasn’t there the other night and she has told me the story of staying with said work colleague. I don’t fully believe her story, however I have to base decisions on it and I have told her she can’t come and see the kids who are living with me now. Not sure if I’ve over reacted and I have already calmed situation and agreed to speak to her later on.
She has coincidentally being having an affair on and off for 18 months. She is categorically denying spending the time with anyone other than the work friend

So you're primarily motivated by jealousy and hurt

She is your ex. You are separated. Why are you denying her access to the children.

Did the split occur due to controlling behaviour on your part by any chance?
