Hello, thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am Michael, a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Good evening,

Reasons that one can ask about someone else and their family could be to be friendly and show interest in a co-worker.

You could ask first about family life and that if they have any children. You can start also by telling the other person what your spouse does and see if the other person responds back with an answer from their side.

Small talk helps in learning more about a co-worker or friend. Opening up on a wide range of topics allows to learn more about the other person and quite possibly you will learn a bit more about the career of their partner.

Often though, it is the other person who is willing to share this information will let you know. Other than that, it might be a personal matter that the other person may not wish to discuss. Continue to be the professional co-worker in a business setting.
