Since both Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas are actors, there's that common bond, but is that enough to hold a marriage? 

Fans of Pernas were less than impressed with the news, one writing, "Is he gonna dump her over text too?" That's a reference to his alleged breakup with Strause

For now, they appear to be wed. She likes to cook, play video games and tennis, and loves to read. He loves to garden, go on adventures, and play with animals. 

Hopefully, they can find something to do together, other than the dirty, that is...
