Can 2 employees be fired for having a relationship?

We’ve already been together without problem there for the last 1 1/2 years and neither of us is in a management position. The new administrator fired her without giving any warning after learning about us the day prior, while off-hours. Neither the previous administrator, nor this current administrator, had a non-fraternization policy (written or otherwise) in place, never mind training or even a handbook on the matter. Was she in her rights to let us go?
