Joe Manganiello and Sofía Vergara may have tied the knot more than three years ago, but the True Blood alum hasn't let those all-too-important romantic gestures couples tend to make in the early days of courtship fall by the wayside—and he never plans to.

“I hold the door open for my wife, and that will never f**king change," the actor, 42, told Men’s Health in a new interview.

Manganiello has good reason for keeping his spouse happy. “My life is great because I really like my wife,” he told the publication. “I like talking to her. I like goofing around with her. We f**king laugh all day long, every day. My favorite thing in the world is making my wife laugh so much she cries. It’s the best.”

He also loves her larger-than-life personality. “I love that she knows how to take care of herself, obviously, because I needed to be with somebody confident,” he shared. “It takes a really strong and secure individual to handle the types of projects I’ve done. But when we’re at home, we’re opposites in all the best ways and we’re compatible in all the best ways. Masculine/feminine, ying and yang, whatever you want to call it.”

Manganiello hasn’t always been so lucky in the love department: He told Cigar Aficianado in April 2018 that his previous relationships weren’t nearly so smooth. “Looking back on the relationships I had before this, I think the universe was giving me some tough practice so I'd get this right."

Now, Manganiello is living his best life with Vergara, doing what all other couples do together, it seems. “We ... watch shows like Game of Thrones, Mindhunter and Naked and Afraid,” he told Men’s Health. They are also known to sing along together to The Cure while grabbing shaved ice.

Vergara, 46, dished about the role that humor plays in the duo’s relationship to Hola! magazine in January 2017. "He is so funny and ever since we met, that has been really important," she said at the time. "We even talk to each other all the time in this little voice that we made up, like a couple of dorks. Whoever heard us, would say, 'What's their problem?’”

Sounds like the best type of problem to have to us!
