In DU's 20-year history... have any couples MET here and subsequently gotten married? [View all]

In DU's 20-year history... have any couples MET here and subsequently gotten married? That would be interesting if it has. So romantic.

One part of me thinks it might be fun to meet other DUers in person. But then again... another part of me is JUST FINE with things the way they are. (I'm not a big risk taker.)
