We would imagine that facing the kind of legal issues that Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are dealing with would be tough on any marriage. Luckily, that doesn't appear to be the case for these two.
Teresa and Joe face a possible 50 years in prison due to federal fraud charges, but Teresa tells Star magazine that the ordeal has actually brought them closer together.
"My marriage is actually stronger," Teresa says. "This has made us really focus and be grateful for what we have."
In fact, the two of them still make an effort to eat dinner together as often as possible. "Joe and I think eating together as a family is important, and we try to do it every night," she adds.
Meanwhile, Teresa tells In Touch that she's very grateful for the efforts Joe continues to make for their family.
"Joe got [my wine line] Fabellini started, and he's getting my Skinny Italian food and dessert lines out," Teresa says. "He's really hustling, making it happen."
"We're together a lot more," she adds.
Given all the stress that she's probably under, we're truly impressed at Teresa's positive outlook and that her family remains her top priority.
