Some love it, some hate it...

Whats your take? Why do you like/not like hiring couples (for apprenticeships/WWOOFing/paid positions/ etc.)?

It has to depend on the couple themselves.

I won't work with ANYONE BUT my Partner.

And if someone wants the best help they can ever get on any project we're experienced with than they have to take us both.

So my conclusion would be this. ESTABLISHED COUPLES = Yes

People who are in a "relationship" and haven't raised kids and homes together = No

I have worked with my partner on several construction jobs, never told my boss we were a couple, never had any issues.
