Dating people in the office
While French originally played hard-to-get because she thought dating the company's CEO was a bad idea, the two had an emotional connection that eventually moved the relationship forward.
They were engaged six years later, when Gates proposed by flying a private jet to Omaha, where friend and fellow billionaire Warren Buffett was waiting to take them to a local jewelry store.
She initially rebuffed Obama's advances, saying it would look tacky for the only two African-Americans in their department to start dating. The couple saw a movie on their first date, and the love blossomed from there.
The pair was engaged three years later and married the next.
Just before the couple was to marry, Chambers left Malone to write a book.
The first couple first laid eyes on each other in the summer of 1989 at a Chicago law firm.
Today, the couple runs their charitable organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, designed to help all people lead healthy and productive lives.
In the 1980s, few workplace relationships captured more attention than that of Sam Malone and Diane Chambers on the hit show "Cheers." The pair, played by Ted Danson and Shelley Long, had an on-and-off romance during the show's first five seasons.
In 1998, President Bill Clinton nearly lost his job after it was revealed that he had carried on a sexual relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky for a year and a half.
While Clinton infamously denied the affair by saying “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky," the relationship came to light when tapes of Lewinsky confiding in co-worker Linda Tripp surfaced.
