the man whose wife I work with

    I'm struggling with this phrase because I don't know how to fit the 'with' in.

    I can start by saying: 'L'uomo la cui moglie..' but how do I continue? Would you have to find an entirely different way of saying this in Italian, for example by altering the meaning slightly and saying 'L'uomo la cui moglie lavora con me.' such that she works with me rather than me with her?

    Easy enough:

    1. L'uomo con la cui moglie lavoro...
    2. L'uomo con la moglie del quale lavoro...

    Grazie mille - yes, evidently very easy after all! I appreciate your help.
