Real Couple: Nikki & Jason

Meet this amazing couple who fell in love at Northwestern University.

Status: Married since October 23, 2010

How they met: They'd met once briefly while attending Northwestern University. But one day, Jason ran into Nikki in the cafe and asked her to sit with him -- and sparks flew! "I did the one thing my mother told me never to do," jokes Nikki. "Talk to strangers!"

Careers: Nikki is a registered nurse, and Jason works as an engineer.

Their digs: They own a 900 sq. ft. home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.

Baby clock: "We plan on starting in the next six months," says Nikki.

Pet peeves: Nikki hates toothpaste in the sink, Jason hates laundry that isn't folded right away

Something no one knows: "We rarely say 'I love you,'" says Nikki. "Actions speak louder than words."

In 10 years: They hope to have a family and be even more in love. (Aw.)
