2. On a personal opinion are you For or Against this HR rule ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Dear Prashant,

Hope you're doing fine.

Usually such policies are applicable where both husband and wife are in certain role which involves a lot of financial/commercials transactions or obligations such as Banks, Financial Institutions etc.

I am of the same opinion unless the nature of job of both husband and wife is of non-commercial or non-financial there is no harm working under one roof.

Warm regards,

Human Resources
