There’s no stopping Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe from having a good time. Not even 15 months of jail looming in front of Teresa followed by 41 months of jail time for her husband can stop these two from going out and celebrating, but the occasion is a happy one in the household Giudice. The couple celebrated their fifteenth wedding anniversary last week and made the decision to go out this weekend to celebrate. However, despite their happy, smiling faces, proclamations of love and hand-holding all weekend long, the couple is facing serious marital issues according to friends of the couple.
A source close to the family states that there is “an icy distance,” between the two. The source also claims that divorce is not an option for the couple, revealing anonymously that the couple won’t divorce simply because they’re not interested in disrupting the lives of their four girls anymore than necessary, especially given the disruption that is about to occur in their young lives. However, the Giudices presented a united front this weekend, dining, holding hands and smiling for photos.
Teresa Giudice even posted to her Instagram account a photo of herself and her husband with the caption, “Celebrated our 15 yr Anniversary 10/23/99 With the Love of my Life.” The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband smiled for the photo, held hands and looked very much in love. However, their friends and family say that they are not happy, they are not as much in love as they want the world to think and that their marriage is crumbling. This is the last anniversary the couple will celebrate together for at least another 5 years – potentially more if Joe Giudice is given additional time in prison for attempting to obtain a false driver license and pending his rumored deportation issues.
