When it comes to Hollywood couples, pretty much anything goes as far as funny stories, random run-ins, and proposals. What’s hilarious about how Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara first got together is that he’d had a crush on her for some time and a mutual friend introduced them. The rest is literally history.
When talking about their marriage, Manganiello doesn’t really agree with those who say that relationships are hard or that they require work.
Manganiello likes to reframe it by saying that life is hard and that having someone there with you to experience the ups and downs throughout, while also supporting each other through it all, is priceless.
These two seem to make their opposite schedules and coupledom work so well simply because they want to.
They’ve been married for over two years and after just a few months of dating decided to tie the knot. To both of them, it immediately felt like a good fit that was followed by their nuptials very quickly after they started dating.
One of the key pieces Manganiello has gained from their marriage is the need to put the other person’s happiness in front of your own. He believes that if both people do that, the trust of continually showing up for that person will become ingrained and often times, easy.
Manganiello found this out while they were planning their wedding as the two are typically very private amount their relationship, but Vergara wanted to share some intimate details with their fans.
Vergara felt that so many had been so kind and encouraging to the couple and she knew so many just wanted to see them happy and in love.
Vergara revealed that she convinced Manganiello who easily acquiesced to her when she framed it in such a way.
Both Manganiello and Vergara seem to have continual rising stars as they both are appearing in different projects this year. Vergara is well known for her role on the ABC sitcom Modern Family and Manganiello for the HBO vampire hit True Blood.
