Mike and Lauren Sorrentino have survived many “Situations” during their relationship and marriage — including, most notably, his recent prison sentence for tax evasion. Yet the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation couple still seem to be rock solid as they look forward to the future and plan on starting a family.

Of course, Mike and Lauren haven’t always been so tight. The college sweethearts were on a break for the length of the original Jersey Shore run, for example, and had a “THOTCHELLA” issue during the filming of the MTV show’s Family Vacation reboot.

Scroll down to relive the Sorrentino’s highs and lows.

2009 to 2012

The Sorrentinos, seen in a throwback pic here, dated in college but took a “break” for “however long Jersey Shore was,” as Lauren exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2018. The show ran from 2009 to 2012.

“Timing is everything — we circled back to each other about two years ago and we kind of picked back up where we left off,” Lauren told Us in May 2015.

April 2018

The couple exclusively revealed their engagement to Us in April 2018, after Mike popped the question while Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cameras rolled. “I approached the executive producers and I let them know, ‘Listen I really want to do this. This show is really special to me. This is the show that introduced me to the world,’” he told Us. “It was really special for me to do this, to get down on one knee on Jersey Shore.”

The Dancing With the Stars alum opened up about his and Lauren’s wedding plans in August 2018, telling Us, “I don’t really know too much about it, but I know ‘happy wife is a happy life.’ So whatever she wants, we’re gonna try to get it.”

October 2018

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation fans watched the duo hit an awkward patch in an October 2018 episode when Mike called his fiancée from Las Vegas to say that his pals hosted naked women in their hotel room. Lauren wasn’t happy. “That’s disgusting,” she told him over the phone. “I’m looking at flowers for our wedding and you’re telling me it was THOTCHELLA of naked girls in the hotel room? … It’s time to come home and, like, plan the wedding. We’ll talk about that when you get home. It’s ridiculous.”

Thank you to all our family, friends and fans who have supported us every step of the way. Gym, Tan, Laurens is the new GTL! With Love, Mr. & Mrs. Michael Sorrentino.”

In a November 2018 interview with Us, the former Marriage Boot Camp star revealed that he and Lauren were more preoccupied with starting a family than with his impending prison sentence. “We don’t necessarily have a plan for [when I go away]. I don’t know if you can actually plan for such a thing,” he explained. “But it’s gonna be a blip [on] the radar and, you know, we’re happy to start a family now.”

The couple opened up about their “heart-wrenching” miscarriage two months after the Jersey Shore star’s prison release. “The night he came home [from prison] we actually conceived,” Lauren revealed during a November Strahan, Sara & Keke appearance. “And then at about six and half, seven weeks, I miscarried. … When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing. … It was hard. It was really difficult.”
