Prof Helen Scot and Stephen WagenerAssoc Prof Helen Scott with husband Stephen Wagener.

Okay, so the UK's got all those first-world bells and whistles. But Associate Professor Helen Scott, at the University of Oxford for a number of years, returned to South Africa and the Department of Private Law in 2009. At UCT she met tutor and research assistant Stephen Wagener, working on his PhD on the law of delict (that arm of the law dealing with civil wrong and compensation). They fell in love and married. In December, the couple will share another ceremony when Scott will hood Wagener, who has finished that PhD and is now based at the Cape Bar. Take that, (sometimes) functioning rapid transit system!
