Yes, a man and a woman do not need to be chaperoned by another adult. I think some couples would be bothered by this and others wouldn't, it's not something that would upset me if my SO did this because I trust him and simply being at a business event with a female coworker does not mean anything inappropriate.I was thinking about this the other day. I think the belief that men and women can't be respectful and non-sexual together is something that helps keep women out of higher business positions...
The problem is what??? They work together and if there is no prior cheating whats the problem? It the other own insecurities that are here...
Well it depends on the people involved. It sounds like there's some fear and distrust here..
I really didn't intend the question to be about jealousy, trust, or an already established opinion. I merely wondered what other people thought about it. I guess I was thinking about it from a respect toward any SO and decorum perspective. ..
As far as decorum, I don't think there's a problem with the situation in and of itself. Many others would say, if you are acting in a way that you'd be comfortable with your SO seeing, you're ok..
I don't see a problem with stayingI would act the same whether the co-worker was male or female, I don't think it makes a difference..
Are they talking to others & networking. Which is the point of a meet & greet, after the seminar. Or ... are they sitting together at the back, ignoring everyone else & behaving date-like? Then no go. It'd be the same if it was happy hour after regular work. If they are behaving date-like, no go.
Under the guise of "just friends!" It's disrespectful from both people, to the other partners that aren't there.

Yes it doesn't mean anything inappropriate is happening - if someone wants to cheat he/she doesn't want to be out of town for it to happen.
Yes I agree. It's insecurities coming in to play. Always try to take a deep breath, realzie you are being trigged by "old feelings" and try to rationally assess the situtation at hand and see if the emotions and doubts are warranted..
