Romex Runs and Proximity?

Quick question. Is there anything wrong/unsafe with two different runs of Romex side by side through the same (properly sized) hole in a stud or joist?

Thanks.

As long as they are carrying line voltage, and not signal or low voltage or video cable, you are good.

Perfect, thank you. Now I can avoid swiss cheese joists.
