Love in the Workplace. Who said love and business do not mix? For these happy couples, the combination makes the perfect relationship. Learn how Jon and Sarah Abernathy balance their passion for their work and in each other at Abernathy Roofing & Construction, and how Wade and Tyffanie Rogers complement each other as owners of Blacklist Ink and Blacklist Laser. These couples are making it work….at work and at home!
