Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas may be married, but they're still enjoying their dating life!

The couple spoke to PEOPLE about dating and tying the knot during the COVID-19 pandemic at the Omega/007 party celebrating the release of No Time to Die in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

When asked about their favorite part of being newly married, Hartley and Pernas both agreed that "going out together" is still at the top of their list — especially after a year of lockdown.

"We couldn't date, we couldn't go out," Pernas explained of the early days of their relationship.

On Wednesday, the pair told PEOPLE that they'd spent most of the first year of their relationship quarantining at Hartley's house, after they began dating in the spring of 2020.

"I'm like, 'Well, why don't you…You know, it's safe over here. It's safe at the house. You know, I'm quarantining, I'm not going anywhere and she's like, 'Okay!' " Hartley said.

The This Is Us star continued, laughing: "She's like, 'I'll go get a change of clothes or whatever my place,' and I'm like, 'Well, why don't you just bring all your clothes here, and then you don't have to leave. Ever.' And then we haven't left since!"
