Southwest is open seating, you pick your seat when you board the plane.  Check in online 24 hours prior to departure and you should have no problem sitting next to each other.  If you want to remove all the worry, purchase EarlyBird Check-In which handles obtaining the boarding position for you and you just show up at the airport. 


Here is more information about the boarding process
