If I telecommute, my spouse (who works at home) and I will share an office - is this a good idea?

It depends on several factors - how large is the office, will you have to share any of the desk space or the PC, how many days will you be both be working at home at the same time, and (obviously) how well you get along. Some couples do very well in a shared office at home and others can't be within fifty feet of each other. All those little annoying habits (like clicking a pencil, chewing gum loudly, or whatever) that are bothersome when co-workers do them are just as annoying when your significant other does them. In short, proximity can breed contempt - or it can be a terrific arrangement as long as you both give it careful thought at the beginning.
