Talk about a bittersweet situation for The Situation.
On Tuesday, the veteran Jersey Shore cast member celebrated his very first Christmas as a married man, proving as much by posing on Instagram with his wife, Lauren.
But here's the thing...
... it was also Mike's last Christmas before he goes away to prison for several months.
Like we said: bittersweet, right?
"Merry Christmas from The Situations & don't forget to treat thyself," the MTV personality captioned this photo of himself and his soulmate.
On October 5, The Situation (aka "Sitch") was sentenced to eight months in jail for tax evasion, which he pleaded guilty to back in January.
According to legal documents, Sorrentino had to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons by January 15 at the latest, which means he has just over two weeks left at home with his new wife.
Gotta be a bit scary for the often-drunk celebrity.
Since the sentencing, however, Mike has tried to make the most of the free time he has remaining.
The clearest example, of course, being that Sorrentino married Lauren on November 1.
"We are so incredibly excited to begin our journey as husband and wife!” the high school sweethearts told Us Weekly shortly after exchanging vows, adding at the time:
"We are each other’s best friend and together we can handle anything. Thank you to all our family, friends and fans who have supported us every step of the way.
"Gym, Tan, Laurens is the new GTL! With Love, Mr. & Mrs. Michael Sorrentino."
As you might have expected, Mike's co-stars were all in attendance at his wedding.
We're talking about Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Deena Cortese, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
A few weeks after their gorgeous wedding, Mike and Lauren flew to Tucson, Arizona, enjoying a relaxing and luxurious honeymoon at Miraval Spa.
While there, the newlyweds treated themselves to a number of spa treatments, lots of tasty food and many scenic hikes.
It may sound simple, but Mike will be missing all of those things when he's in the clink.
On Saturday, meanwhile, the Situation celebrated three years of sobriety.
We've been joking about the guy here and there in this post, but now it's time to be serious:
That's impressive and admirable. Well done, dude!
“Big daddy Sitch celebrating 3 years of sobriety & teaming up with @discoveryinstitute_nj to bring a holiday meal to Phoenix Recovery House in Eatontown NJ for Christmas,” Sorrentino wrote on Instagram to honor the occasion, concluding:
2019 will be your year of advancement ... God is taking you to another level.
