Real Couple: Michelle & Greg

Location: Toledo, Ohio

Their Digs: They own a 1,600 sq. ft. loft apartment. Peek inside their stylish home.

Ages: Michelle is 31; Greg is 39.

How They Met: Michelle was working as a cocktail waitress in a cigar and martini bar that Greg used to frequent with his friends. We became friends first, and one day decided to go to dinner... and we have been together ever since.

Maried: September 16, 2006

Together: 12 years

Career: Michelle works in a locally-owned women's clothing boutique; Greg is the soccer coach for the State of Ohio division III State Champions and owns his own design/fabrication business, Studio 360.

Pets: "No pets of our own yet -- but we enjoy being the occasional dog-sitter for Greg's brother's dog Gus or Greg's parent's dog Pee-Wee, whom are both dachshunds," says Michelle. "There is definitely a dachshund of our own in the future!"

Baby Clock: No kids at the moment.

Fight Most About: "People always tell us we are "weird" or "not normal" because we truly have never really had a fight in almost 12 years," says Greg.

Downtime: They're both huge music fans and enjoy going to concerts together. Michelle loves photography, painting, scrapbooking, and kickboxing class. Greg enjoys soccer, building furniture, and going to movies.

On Weekends: "We usually grab dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and catch a movie afterwards," says Greg. "In the summertime, we like to take walks downtown near our loft. Maybe we'll catch a baseball game or walk one of the paths at one of the local parks."
