Im in my mid twenties and was in hospital as a teenager and developed a close friendship with my nurse and kept in contact. Over time we have become closer and it has spilled over into a romantic/sexual relationship. We are both fully aware of the nursing code but it is impossible to ignore our love for each other and we are both the happiest we have ever been since being together (2.5 years). The problem is that (we are both female) neither of us is openly gay, an there is a 15year age gap (26-41) and obviously it is against the rules. Would this ever be accepted? We have considered all options and as we want to have a child together (IVF) it is hard to keep our relationship secret anymore. If she were to change careers would it still be a chargable offence or would we just be looked down on? Any advice would help.
