Joe said that he thought she was the girl he would marry the moment he saw her. 

They later met in Jersey and got serious in their relationship. They got married after a year of meeting each other in 2004. They have three children together, Antonia Gorga, Gino Gorga, and Joey Gorga.

Struggling not to grow apart 

The couple has gone strong, being married for 17 years now, but Melissa recently said they are struggling to keep the family together, although they are a great couple. 

She says it is tough to maintain a family life when being broadcast on reality TV for more than 11 years

She said that the couple's major problem is that her husband does not like things to change, but since she has been with him when she was 24, she has changed, which is scary. 

Despite the problems, she says they are always working things out.
