In the last place I worked someone was shagging the boss (who was married), and funnily enough they clambered up the ladder a lot quicker than others at the same level, and one of those 'others' was effectively sacked when they queried why they weren't getting promotions etc etc. It was the world's worst kept secret, everyone knew they were at it. I hate that kind of thing, makes my blood boil.
Otherwise, I can't see work relationships are a problem so long as it doesn't engender favouritism etc etc.
Teacher /pupil is wrong; teacher should know better. I'd be appalled if a teacher was having a relationship with my kid, even is he/she was 16.
Other age difference issues don't bother me. I always went for guys that were a bit older, but as I get older i'd prefer to be with someone my own age, or thereabouts.

I have an enhanced CRB due to my job and it never asked about relationships or who you live with.

I wasn't sure about CRB, I do know that for some jobs with a sensitive aspect you do need to declare things like that..
Wilkie, some 50 years olds are doing it given half a chance
If you stopped relationships at my workplace, we'd lose 75% of the workforce.
I have been through HMP security clearance and they didn't ask who I was seeing. You could a) lie or b) change that situation in a week so tbh it's pointless
It seems Dick van Dyke (86) has just married; his bride is age 40. Bloimy, Muary Puppins!
This would be like me lining up the next Mrs Hamster by touring the incubators at the maternity ward...still, good luck to them both.
I would draw the line as soon as there is a power imbalance in the relationship, so while there is nothing wrong with a significant age gap per se I would be very suspicious of someone my age (late 20s) who wanted to go out with my 16 year old cousin. I think there is such a huge gap in experience and emotional maturity between those ages, it doesn't seem right to me.
Courtney Stodden (17) and Doug Hutchison (51) make my skin crawl, there seems to be something so wrong with that relationship, not least that her parents basically handed her over to him.
I have worked at a few places that had the rule about no relationships in the same office/branch/department. I had a Saturday job at a high street bank when I was at college and you were not allowed to work in the same branch as your partner or a family member, the argument was that it would be easy to cover up any professional indiscretion.
