I've given this issue a lot of thought over the years and have discussed it with many professionals and students, and the consensus seems to be that it's best to wait until the student has graduated.
Students, all students, must be off-limits as romantic partners for professors and administrators in universities, regardless of what rules are in place.
Might the professor’s best friends on the faculty be more generous when grading their friend’s significant other if he or she is one of their students?
Will the professor consciously or subconsciously be easier on the friends of his student lover if they are in his class?
Your boss might not appreciate it, and you don't want to take such a risk. Even if there isn't an official rule against it, I think it is universally frowned upon.

My university doesn't have a rule against it written anywhere, but a professor who chooses to date someone who is still attending the university will be talked about.
