Back in 1995, it just so happened that Lauren Graham and Peter Krause were guest stars in the same "Caroline in the City" episode, carving the way for their friendship to begin. Although they got along, their relationship did not escalate to anything more than.

Years later, during an appearance on "Live With Kelly," Krause revealed that when they were new friends, Graham had asked him to stop by to move some furniture for her, but the "Six Feet Under" star did not get the hint. Nevertheless, things worked well for them in the end.

THE START OF ROMANCE

In 2002, the pair met again to present an award together at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but it wasn't until eight years later, when they starred in the family drama "Parenthood," they fell in love. Although Graham and Krause played on-screen siblings, the pair felt nothing like brother and sister when the camera stopped rolling.

The relationship was kept a secret from the public to keep their roles realistic. In a previous interview, as reported by Us Weekly, Graham said:

"Nobody knew about it for a while because we like to be at home, cooking, and not going out. I've also been really protective of it because it's important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show."

Their love began with non-stop conversations about the world around them, their personal lives, and their favorite books. However, Graham admitted to being hesitant to enter a relationship with a coworker at first. They both had "showmances" that did not work and ended up awkward at work by that time.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Graham had to be away from her partner for five months while filming a new series.

However, once they became a couple, both knew it was a serious commitment. Speaking with the media, Graham stated that neither played games as soon as they got together. "It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it's completely random," the "Gilmore Girls" star said.

KEEPING A LOW PROFILE

Since getting together, not much of their relationship has been shared with the public. In 2012, Graham enlightened everyone on the underlying reason for their being kept under wraps, even though she sometimes wishes she could talk more about it. The actress said:

"I don't look at the magazines that expose people's private lives. I get embarrassed for myself, and it's too much."

Graham noted that the job also involves exposing oneself to a certain extent, but it is still essential to be selective about how much one does. Sometimes, fans demand to know a celebrities personal life, including their dating status, as though they were part.

A GLIMPSE INTO THEIR LIFE

In 2014, Graham appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that their love was beyond any title. "We are really happy," she said, as reported by Us Weekly. "I feel like close to five years in Hollywood, it's like, aren't we married already really? It's good the way it is."

The pair has since kept a low profile with cameos in each other's projects while they focus on work. In 2016, Krause appeared in the "Gilmore Girls" revival, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." He took on the role of a park ranger, while Graham reprised her role as Lorelai.

In 2020, the couple made a rare red carpet appearance at the Golden Globe Awards and shared a glimpse into their private life. Since they both like doing crossword puzzles and spelling games, it was agreed that the answers the crossword in "The Week," while Graham gets the puzzle in the "New York Times."

Similarly, the actress answers the Sudoku puzzle in "The Week," while he gets the Spelling Bee activity in "The Times." Apart from those, their typical Sunday consists of listening to music or "This American Life."

The "Evan Almighty" star previously shared that she is pretty entertained with the internet. "Peter blames some of it on being a Pisces," she said, as reported by Us Weekly. "'One fish goes this way, the other fish goes that way," he'll say when I leave the refrigerator open for the millionth time."

The couple has been living a happy life with Krause's son, Roman, whom he shares with his ex, Christine King. According to Graham, she straightens her relationships with kids by allowing them to answer curious questions and think of their conclusions.

Graham and Krause also have an adopted dog, Mochi, who brought more color to their lives. In 2020, the actress revealed that their dog went to puppy school and hid in a corner while all the other canines jumped all over the place.

SEPARATED BY COVID

While everything was already beautiful between the two, Graham and Krause's dynamics were disrupted when the pandemic happened. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Graham had to be away from her partner for five months while filming a new series. She said

"Normally, that's a two-hour flight, and you come home on the weekends, but I couldn't do that. So we were separated for almost five months, which had never happened before."

While it may have been difficult for the pair to be apart, other couples had it worse, including a husband and wife from Florida. Joseph and Eve Loreth, married for 60 years, had to spend 215 days apart due to the hospital's strict COVID-19 protocols.

At that time, Joseph was admitted due to an illness that cost him to amputate one of his legs. He had to begin rehabilitation immediately following the procedure as part of his recovery process at the Rosecastle at Delaney Creek assisted living facility.

Sadly, his wife was not allowed to have physical contact with him to avoid the risks of contaminating the virus. Eve moved into the facility to be near her husband, but even then, she was not allowed to make contact with him.

After months apart, separated by a glass window, the couple had the sweetest emotional reunion. Their happiness showed what an endearing love between the two was.
