This is an interesting issue and I can see where the problems could come about.
Like has been mentioned, when you've got people working together in space, who totally depend on one another, and are stuck together for extended
periods of time, you want to avoid any potential problems, and we all know that love and sex are a great cause of tension between people. Even mature
adults. I think the situation would be made worse if it occured in space, for the above mentioned reasons.
It'll be interesting to see how this is dealt with if a mission to Mars is indeed in the future.
