I guess if you keep things somewhat separate.
Traditionally most work places have always avoided allowing hiring couples on the same department.

There's stories of this working out, but there's stories of this... well.... you know.
It's a business decision of course for a company to not allow couples in the same departments.

Disagreements will exist.

I guess it depends on [and if] you get competitive with your partner.
For some couples that seemed to work, it was usually when one of the partners wasn't very competitive [or feeling strongly] about their dev side.
I know that it sounds not-great, but it's an observation; so it should be treated as such.
