Without a starship, there would be no need for rank, or the pretense of Starfleet regulations to govern their behavior. As Captain she could only have the luxury of holo-romances. I think it would have been inappropriate for her to develop a relationship with Chakotay, neither could Chakotay develop a relationship with anyone onboard, only equally ranked officers, or junior officers could have that luxury.
Janeway definitely wasn't married. She was engaged to Mark Johnston, not married to him. Am I wrong in thinking that Picard and Crusher ended up together? They were definitely together in the novel Before Dishonor. I would think the doc of a starship would be lower in rank to the Captain.
