While Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce have been a thing for years – since college in fact – they only got around to tying the knot in late 2018. But when the happy couple did marry, they did it with panache in a beautiful and apparently very emotional ceremony. Let’s take a look, then, at the inside details of the wedding – as well as how the couple finally got into a position to commit to each other.
Reality TV fans first met Sorrentino on Jersey Shore, which ran on MTV from 2009 to 2012. And the premise of the show was pretty simple: eight people living out the summer in the New Jersey town of Seaside Heights. Yet while the series’ ratings were unspectacular at first, Jersey Shore ultimately grew to become a phenomenon. And as a result, the former fitness center assistant manager became a star.
However, when Sorrentino first started on the show, he didn’t seem like the long-term relationship type. Being both a slacker and a party animal, he wasn’t perhaps the typical candidate for choosing to settle down. And then there was his nickname, “The Situation.” Sorrentino explained exactly how he had earned that moniker in season two of the series, revealing, “My abs are so ripped up it’s called ‘The Situation.’”
