This subject recently came up with my Tai Chi teacher. His advice was "You treat your students like your family. Not lovers."

We didn't get around to student-student relationships, but as I see it, the relationship should be kept out of the dojo during training. If it turns sour, they should be able to rise above it, at least for the duration of a class or their practice time together.
