Perlman and his ex-wife were married for almost 40 years.


Perlman was interviewed about his long marriage in December 2018. He was asked what the secret to the success of his marriage was.

He said, "The mastering of the phrase, 'You know darling, you are so right!' If you can master that phrase, and you're a dude, you got a shot. I'm just a really lucky dude. The way my life worked out. In spite of a lot of my own stupidities and weaknesses, I'm still a lucky dude."

He's been liking her Instagram photos.

Dunbar posts a lot of photos of herself in a bikini and in lingerie. Perlman has been liking her sexy posts since September 2019. The couple also posted photos of their dogs dressed up for Halloween.

They've been spotted out together a lot.

On November 3, 2019, Perlman was spotted with Dunbar at Los Angeles' Soho House. He was not wearing his wedding ring. He also wasn't hiding his affection for Dunbar and, at one point, he had his hand in her lap. 

In fact, an eyewitness to their PDA said, "They definitely seemed like an item. [They were] very touchy-feely.”

They spent Perlman's birthday together.

Well, sort of. The couple wasn't able to do too much due to the current coronavirus quarantine. However, they did get some fresh air while taking their dog on a walk. Perlman turned 70 on April 13.
