How Do Melissa and Joe Gorga Keep Their Marriage So Strong?

The #RHONJ 'Wife opens up about date nights with her hubby.

By Jocelyn Vena

Melissa Gorga might be a busy mom with a new clothing boutique to run, but that doesn't mean she can't also make time for her husband, Joe. In fact, The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple insists on stepping away from their hectic schedules and their kids to put the focus back on their relationship every once and a while.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

"I always say it's probably one of the most important things [to have date nights]. I don't know how couples can survive without being able to spend some time alone and take it back to it being about the two of them, instead of the bills, the kids, the mortgage, the work, the jobs," she told The Daily Dish. "There's got to be a time that you guys just hang out and remember why you like each other so much."

Of course, the Gorgas are not shy about flaunting their undying love for one another. Melissa often posts photos of the couple out and about on dates — which, for them, can include anything from romantic dinners to football games or trips down to Atlantic City.

So how does she juggle alone time with her man along with mom duties and a new business? As it turns out, Melissa's a pro when it comes to time management. "It's a lot and I'm getting up really early in the morning and going to be [going to bed] really late at night to try to get it all in," she explained. "[It's] a lot of hours, but that's OK. I drink two cups of coffee a day now, so I'm good."
