The Situation & Lauren Pesce: A Timeline of Their Love Story

The Situation Relationship

When Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino first appeared on MTV’s Jersey Shore, he wasn't exactly tame. At best, he could be described as a hard-partying player -- not the type who could handle commitment. (For example, things didn't go too smoothly during his fling with Paula.) But, alas, we were wrong: It turns out that Mike knew all about love as he had just gotten out of a multiple-year relationship with his college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, before moving into the shore house. And once the reality show was over (the first time, at least), the two reconnected, and, well, the rest is history ... well, kinda.

Fast-forward to today, and Mike is pretty much a different guy than he was during the first years of Jersey Shore. He's been in a loving relationship for quite some time now, which has fans of the show curious about all the juicy details.

How long have Lauren and Mike have really known each other? Where did they meet? When or how did they get back together? When did things take a serious turn?

(Yes, we're nosy!)

Thanks to all the loving throwbacks and interviews these lovebirds enjoyed, we were able to piece all the deets together for those interested in Mike and Lauren's love story. These days, we have a pretty good idea about the couple's relationship timeline -- which is great, considering they're about to take another major step and walk down the aisle very soon. (Yay for wedding inspiration.)

Mike and Lauren's love story can be found, ahead. Yes, it's been rocky. Yes, it’s been crazy at certain times. But somehow, the two have made it all work -- and right now, it looks like they're on their way to having their happily ever after.
