A lot has happened since the final season of Jersey Shore for our favorite guidos and guidettes. From The Situation getting clean and sober to Snooki getting pregnant (and engaged!), things certainly changed in big and important ways since we first met the cast.

One of the sweetest developments has been how Snooki and Sammi and Ronnie have all settled down into happy and healthy relationships. Though Snooki faced many challenges with her fiancé Jionni, and SamRon are notorious for their crazy fights and many break-ups and make-ups, we’re very happy that both couples have settled down happily and found a way to make things work.

Which couple has changed the most, Snooki and Jionni or Sammi and Ronnie?

 

Snooki and Jionni have definitely had their share of ups and downs since we first met them in season 4. When Snooki arrived in Italy, she was head over heels in love with her boyfriend, and made sure to let Mike know to keep away from her (and her relationship!) because she didn’t want to mess things up.

Things got messy even before Jionni visited her abroad when Mike’s “secret” about him allegedly hooking up with Snooki got out, and Snooki feared she’d lose her boyfriend over it. But Jionni seemed unfazed by that rumor, and it was the little things that caused problems between them. Snooki’s direct, bold personality made him uncomfortable, especially when she’d say very sexual things to him over the phone on national TV. When he visited her in Italy, he got angry with her for drunkenly flashing her underwear in a club.

Some fans have questioned why Jionni is with Snooki if he knows she’s a “crazy party girl”, but he answered that rather poignantly on Snooki & JWOWW, explaining that he knows that deep down Nicole is an amazing person and there is so much more to her than that. He loves her goofy, funny personality, but Jionni always had trouble reconciling that with her wilder side.

This issue came up again in season 2 of Snooki & JWOWW, when after a night of hard partying with her girlfriends, Jionni discovered that Snooki had made out with several of them! It brought up some pent-up feelings from Italy (including Snooki’s indiscretions with Vinny), but luckily the two were able to work things out.

Now both Snooki and Jionni have matured a lot and are able to accept each other’s quirks, strengths and weaknesses without criticizing one another. They’re enjoying their lives together, and we couldn’t be happier for them!

Sammi and Ronnie have also come a very long way, having been on-and-off for years until finally settling into a happy domestic relationship together today. Ron went from being against falling in love at the Shore to buying his girlfriend sweet surprises for her birthday and taking her out on romantic dinner dates. These two used to fight all the time and have serious jealousy and trust issues, but now it looks like they’ve worked out their differences and learned how to better communicate with each other and trust one another. It doesn’t hurt that they’re away from all the craziness and drama at the Shore house and can just focus on themselves now.

Snooki and Jionni went from two crazy kids in love who didn’t know quite what to do with each other, to a happy, healthy and engaged family with an adorable son and a dream house in construction! Sam and Ron grew and strengthened as a couple, going from daily fights to a peaceful domestic life together in upstate New York.
