Laws on dating coworkers
First, you need to make sure the employee is truly in the relationship by choice—that she hasn’t felt pressured.

Playing musical chairs with direct reports does not solve the ethical issues that come with this interoffice romance.
As owners, both of you are responsible for setting the tone for the organization and for modeling behavior expected of all employees.
So, from both the business and ethical perspectives—to keep your staff from getting distracted by a soap opera and to give the employee involved an opportunity to leave a complicated situation and come out even (or ahead) professionally—you should focus on separating the work and romantic relationships.

After she knows we are dating, she started reacting weird.
It's hard to describe how weird she is, but she started to being more strict on jobs. I never doubt that she as a manager, should be strict on daily work.
