Teresa and Joe Guidice put their legal troubles aside Saturday to mark a special occasion.

“Celebrated our 15 yr Anniversary 10/23/99 With the Love of my Life,” Teresa wrote on a caption on a photo on her Instagram account of the two Real Housewives of New Jersey stars together.

Earlier this week Teresa learned she will serve her 15-month sentence at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, that was the inspiration for the Netflix series Orange is the New Black.

Teresa’s attorneys had asked U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas if she could serve most of her sentence at a halfway house, where she could work and go home on weekends, but Salas nixed that idea.

Teresa heads to prison Jan. 5.

Joe will serve his 41-month prison sentence for conspiring with his wife to commit mail and mortgage fraud after she finishes hers.
