And Mrs. Dwyer, who plays for Seattle in the National Women’s Soccer League, tweeted:

The couple told People magazine they bought a house in Kansas City.

“Juggling our careers and relationship is very difficult, which is why we decided to wed privately in January,” the Dwyers said in a statement. “We wanted to announce our marriage at an appropriate time when we were together and at a time that suited our families. We also wanted to make sure that we told all of our close friends and teammates before we announced it publicly.”

Personally, I think they’re made for each other. I mean who else would do this?
