Kaley Cuoco married Karl Cook in early July 2018. They had a quieter wedding, perhaps because they’re both super-rich and doing a “quiet wedding” is a flex at this point. Karl’s family is very wealthy, and Kaley’s wealth is self-made. But they met doing that favorite pursuit of the wealthy: horse stuff. My point is that they have a lot of money, and the super-rich live differently. My point is also that after marrying nearly two years ago, they still haven’t “moved in” together, in the same house and all of that. In August of last year, Kaley talked about how they still weren’t living together because their house was still being built, and until then, they both had their separate homes. Well, that’s continued until… now. Or next month.
Kaley Cuoco is going to have a brand-new roomate next month: her husband Karl Cook. The actress, who has been living in New York City filming her upcoming HBO Max series The Flight Attendant, told Access Hollywood on Monday that she and Cook are moving into their first home together in April.
“We are built, we are so excited,” said Cuoco, 34. “We haven’t spent an evening in it yet. Actually Karl has been at home and I said ‘Why don’t you stay at the house?’ but he’s waiting for me to get there and have all the animals there.”
“When I wrap in April, that will be our first time in our new house,” she added. “We are going steady. He gave me his letterman jacket and we are moving in together.”
The Big Bang Theory alumna revealed last year that she and her husband, a professional equestrian and son of billionaire Scott Cook, were not living under the same roof.
“Everyone was like so crazed that we didn’t live together, they couldn’t believe,” Cuoco recalled. “I was like ‘Why do you care?’ Didn’t understand it.”
During an appearance on The View in November, Cuoco explained that she and Cook were living apart “because of work and his business and his horses are a few hours away from where I was currently living. We just haven’t been under the same roof. But by the way, it’s been working great and we love it. We love it, so I don’t know why people have such an issue.”
You might remember that Gwyneth Paltrow also did the “not living with her husband for a year” thing, but as we later learned, that living arrangement was not some high-minded, elitist scheme for a healthy marriage. There’s some kind of drama between Gwyneth and Brad Falchuk’s kids from his first marriage, and I think the living situation issue was custodial. So… a different situation from the Kaley-Karl thing entirely. I just can’t believe that two (rich) people would choose not to cohabitate for some-odd 21 months after they got married. But I do get that horse people are just DIFFERENT. The horses come first, the marriage second.

If it works for them, so be it.
If it works for them, it works for them! My husband has an internship this summer, so we’ll live apart for the first time in five years. I’m kind of freaking out a bit.
I was going to talk smack but when I actually read the article I think this sounds sweet.
I think this makes sense. She was working on her show and he was working with the horses elsewhere. They’re super rich so it makes sense that they can maintain multiple residences for convenience.
I’ve seen pics on insta of this new house that they’re building and it’s huge and looks like there’s plenty of room to move the horses there too.
As an equestrian myself (albeit not at all on their income level), I totally get their situation. For her husband, the horses are his job and children. Makes sense he wouldn’t want to be a few hours away from them.
The impression I get from social media is that they’re still together a lot, even if not living together. If it works and they’re happy, godspeed.
If it works for them I don’t see what the issue is. Marriage is whatever two people decide to make it for themselves. I agree with her, “Why do people care?” One of the things I know I would struggle with if I were married is living with someone so to me this sounds like an ideal arrangement.
And it is. My husband and I don’t live together (by choice). We spend plenty of time together and I’ve been telling all of my friends about how much I love it for years.
This is the frickin’ DREAM. Wish I was rich and could afford a separate residence from my husband. He can have the kids with him too, and I’ll live in fancy little apartment up the street. It’ll be TIDY, with no pee all over the toilet seat, no dirty clothes all over the floor, and when I put something down it’ll still be there when I go to get it later. Ooo – and no-one yelling at me across the house because they can’t find their shoes/diary/brain
hear hear! lol
So funny LadyBB! Best comment of the day!
My husband and I had to live apart for two years due to work and I loved it. Until I didn’t. Luckily we were able to get work in the same town. But honestly, it was very romantic. I loved living alone and focusing on work and friends. And when we saw each other several times a month, it was fantastic. But then – we are also horse (and cow) people. Sooooo
When my college boyfriend and I got serious it became a nuisance to not live together we were doing everything together anyway
Obviously no kids were involved so that didn’t need to be considered
But for childless couples, I get needing time apart-your own office, running errands, or trips with friends without your spouse would provide alone time or separate time without them living in a different home. I’d miss them. To each their own though
I very much like living alone, but this does seem like a long time to be living apart after just getting married. Her being away for work makes sense, but it’s been almost 2 years! I guess whatever works for them.
Cue divorce/separation announcement in 6 months.
Living with another person and getting used to them is *hard*, and it’s a test of whether you can potentially stand to compromise with this person for the rest of your life. Money and space help, but that neither of them felt compelled to compromise for the sake of their relationship speaks volumes.
My husband lives in Australia because he likes his job there and I live in North America because I am not giving up law school and my own dreams for anything and it was working well, until Corona virus 😐 now I feel like a selfish jerk if I go see him in May. But all of this is to say, it’s not completely unheard of!
Everyone here saying this makes sense and it totally works for them, forget celebrity marriages don’t last for a reason.
This is incredibly stupid and not what marriage is about. You’ll see when they announce a divorce within a year.
Why would you marry before actually Living together and seeing if it even works? She seemed really desperate to get married.
