Real Couple: Veronika & Kevin

Meet Veronika & Kevin. This cute couple reveals all the dirty details of the newlywed life. Find out how they met, what they fight about, and even how often they're having sex!

Their Digs: Own a 1,400 sq. ft., 2-bedroom, 2-bath townhome in Houston, TX

Ages: Veronika is 24; Kevin is 31.

How They Met: In Toronto, Veronika’s hometown. They clicked instantly, so Veronika was disappointed to find out that Kevin lived in Houston. But they made it work, dated long-distance, and accumulated a lot of frequent-flier miles! After she finished her postgraduate program, she moved to Houston.

Years Together: Almost 2

Married For:
6 months

Career:
Kevin is a marketing project specialist, and Veronika works for a nonprofit organization as a communications associate.

Baby Clock:
Not for at least 4 more years. They'd like to accomplish a few more things before they have their first child, but they both want kids.

Fight Most About:
Veronika had to ask Kevin because she couldn’t think of anything they seriously fight about, but one thing they argue over is the temperature of the house -- she’s always freezing and wearing sweats and slippers, and Kevin blasts the AC and walks around in shorts and a T-shirt. They also argue over the duvet because, somehow, more of it always ends up on his side of the bed.

Biggest Worry:
Something tragic happening to either one of them or their parents (or their dog!)

Fantasy Buy:
A dream vacation. They would love to go somewhere exotic and spend a week on the beach.

Who Makes More:
Kevin does, "for now..." says Veronika.

Interests & Hobbies:
They both love TV, home projects, going to the gym, movies, concerts, and their Wii!

Favorite Sports Team:
Kevin loves all of the Houston teams. Veronika’s not into sports, but she supports his love of sports.

Who Loves to Cook:
Veronika taught herself how to cook a few meals that she keeps in rotation since they moved in together. Kevin's idea of cooking is throwing chicken nuggets in the oven or making grilled cheese.

Splurge:
They have two amazing TVs -- a Panasonic flat-screen TV that hangs on their wall like art in their living room and another 52-inch DLP TV in their bedroom.

Guilty Pleasures:
They both love candy and Cold Stone Creamery ice cream. They get the cake batter flavor with Butterfinger chocolate mixed in.

Decorating Style:
Kevin is into a more modern style, and Veronika likes a clean, romantic style, like what you’d see in a Pottery Barn or Z Gallerie catalog. They’re about to paint their home, and they’re trying to work on merging their two styles.

Have Sex:
Twice a week, sometimes more

Pets:
They have a Shi Tzu/mini poodle mix named Lulu. He’s almost 4.

Favorite Vacation Spot:
Both of them would love to explore Europe.

Anniversary Gift:
The best anniversary would be to go on vacation together -- maybe to somewhere fun like Vegas or somewhere relaxing with a beach.

Spend the Weekends:
They visit Kevin's parents, get together with their friends, see movies, and take the dog to the park.

On Weeknights: Usually they’re both tired from work, so they eat dinner, lounge, and watch their favorite shows (or catch up on DVR shows). Sometimes they go to the gym together too.
