Do you remember those interviews with the adorable older couples from When Harry Met Sally? Well, when we set out to look at modern love and marriage, we wanted to see what it's like for real-life couples - in small apartments, working real jobs, making a life together - so we did our own version of those interviews. Brian and Tanika are the first of five in our new mini-series, and we hope you love their love story as much as we do.
