Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook are not your average couple. However, quarantine has forced them to adapt to one conventional marriage practice. According to USA Today, Cuoco and Cook hadn’t lived together until having to quarantine together despite being married for 1.5 years. She planned for the first time living with Cook to be after filming for “The Flight Attendant” wrapped, but the coronavirus pandemic derailed those plans. Cuoco admits that while she was hesitant to move in with her hubby, she is enjoying it and shared that it has actually strengthened their relationship.
The couple tied the knot in July 2018 but had been dating for several years before that. Cuoco revealed during a FaceTime interview with Jimmy Kimmel that even though moving in together wasn’t their decision, they are loving it.
“We’ve been married for a year and a half, been together for almost four years and this quarantine has forced us to actually move in together,” Cuoco said. “It’s been great for our relationship, and we like each other we realized, which is even better.”
Cuoco thought she had a few months before the big move-in, but once filming of “The Flight Attendant” was cancelled due to the coronavirus, she packed everything up from her old place and moved into Cook’s LA place.
“I was shooting in New York and got sent back here obviously because of everything that was going on and we got to move into the house together,” Cuoco told Kimmel. “So we moved in and I can’t find anything, but the house is great.”
While living together has been harmonious, the couple, like the rest of us, haven’t had much exciting going on since quarantine started.
“Jimmy this is the thing: usually when I come on your show, I’ve prepped stories … I kept thinking ‘what am I going to say?’ because you’re looking at it,” Cuoco said on the subject of any life updates. “A lot of drinking and trying to keep the dogs occupied. We don’t have kids we just have 17,000 animals.”
Cuoco admitted that she had received a lot of judgement initially for her and Cook’s decision to live separately. She initially had to defend her choice.
“Everyone was, like, so crazed,” she said during an interview with Access explaining the reactions of those who have been criticized her and her husband’s life choices. “They couldn’t believe. I was like, ‘Why do you care?’ Didn’t understand it.”
Despite the judgement, the couple has been going strong and prove to excel during these tough times.
