Office romance is your boss’ business

Do you know what a "cupid contract" or a "love agreement" is?

You are married/dating your boss or colleague.

The HR manager will make you both sign a document.

The document - sometimes called a "cupid contract" or a "love agreement" - spells out the firm's policy on sexual harassment, including to whom you can turn for help if your romance goes sour and your boy/girlfriend starts, for instance, stalking you at work or threatening to get you fired.

That probably strikes you as wildly unlikely, but it's been known to happen.

What the company is doing is trying to prevent a potential sexual harassment lawsuit.
