While the article couches the subject in terms of pillow talk, it raises a number of ethical, legal and professional issues that arise when power couples bring their work home with them.
The article tells the story of several people who, both knowingly and unknowingly, passed information to their significant other. It also give the accounts of some famous couples who have thus far resisted the temptation to let a little too much slip out when discussing their careers.
Still, even for the ones who have pulled it off, there's always the recognition that the temptation is constantly there, lurking in the shadows waiting to jump out when one of the partners exercises a little less discretion than they should.
If the other partner acts on that temptation, a whole host of professional and legal harpies could descend on them both. If attorneys, they could both be disbarred and terminated for using a client's confidential information. Or if they decide to trade on the information, the SEC could potentially charge them with using insider information.
In any event, it's probably best not to say too much in the first place. After all, who wants to discuss every single detail about work with the important person in your life?
I say leave the pillow talk for more interesting subjects.
