Meet Pauley Perrette Boyfriend, Thomas Arklie

Pauley Perrette’s boyfriend, Thomas Arklie, is a former Royal Marine. The couple has been together for over a decade.

Perrette and Arklie dated for a while before getting engaged in December 2011.

The actress announced the engagement through her Twitter. However, she also revealed that she wouldn’t marry Arklie until Proposition 8 is invalidated.

She posted a picture with her fiance, with the quoted text, “Me & #MyMarine are engaged now but will NOT GET MARRIED UNTIL #Prop8 is OVER!”

A constitutional proposal known as Prop 8 that was on the California ballot sought to outlaw same-sex unions.

It was passed in November 2008 and was deemed invalid after a significant legal battle in June 2013.

However, it needs to be made clear whether Perrette and Arklie got married after Proposition 8 was revoked.

Thomas is a former Royal Marine Commando and an NAUI instructor. 

In 1981, he earned a Mechanical Engineering degree from Basingstoke Technical College.

Since April 2014, Arklie has worked as an Assistant Dive Safety Officer at California Science Center.

Pauley Perrette Married Life And Relationship Timeline

American former actress Pauley Perrette married controversial Canadian actor and musician Francis “Coyote” Shivers in 2000.

It was Coyote’s second marriage; he first married a singer and model, Bebe Buell, Liv Tyler’s mother, in 1992.

However, the marriage ended in 1999 as they divorced after a year-long separation.

Perrette and Coyote’s relationship did not last long, as they separated in 2004 before their divorce was finalized in 2006.

Their relationship was rocky, as Perrette gained a restraining order against Coyote.

Perrette, Buell, and Coyote’s ex-girlfriend Angela Garber all allege that he has a pattern of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse and legal harassment.

The Los Angeles Superior Court declared Shivers a vexatious litigant in 2008, thus barring him from filing court action without a judge’s review.

Perrette then dated cameraman Michael Bosman for four years. However, he did not propose until the legalization of same-sex marriage in California in June 2008.

They got engaged but did not marry, saying they would wait until everyone could get married in the United States, regardless of gender.

The couple campaigned publicly against the 2008 California Proposition 8. However, their relationship halted as they separated after a while.

The actress suffered a stroke in September 2021, which she announced in September 2022.

Pauley Perrette is new on Instagram, where she joined in November 2022. She has around 9K followers on her profile, @thepauleyp.
