Hmm. I would be interested to hear his perspective as well.

I have been in a similar situation. I had a relationship with someone who was my teacher from high school. We ended up together for 4 years. I left and went to a different school and so did they but that was a direct result of their x partners bringing the issue to the attention of the board of trustees...

They really were a brilliant teacher. Ended up with a much better position in a different school. Almost lost their job because of this though.

My partner got involved with me with the best of all intentions. And so did I.

But things didn't work out for us. I don't mean to be a harbinger of doom and gloom but they got a bit too into the 'rescuing' role and I got into the 'yes please do' and we simply mistook that for an equal relationship because being together made both of us feel so good.

I think the rules are there for a reason.
I think the intention behing the rules is equally important.

I do not think that an equal relationship could ensue from meeting each other in roles that have an inherent power imbalance. But then maybe equal relationships aren't everyones ideal anyways....
