Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 20-year marriage is officially over.
A source close to the Giudice family tells PEOPLE that the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple “have been separated” since November.
“They discussed their future when Teresa and the girls went to Italy in early November, and they agreed that each had to move on. They are doing so amicably and very slowly,” the source says. “Joe has been out on a few dates, Teresa has not. She has been too busy with the girls, with work obligations and taking care of her father. She is happy for Joe. They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the WWHL special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long-distance relationship.”
However, the source makes it clear that “there are no plans for divorce” at this time and that “both of them are focused” on their four daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.
Meanwhile, the couple’s four daughters will be spending Christmas in Italy with Joe while Teresa will remain in New Jersey with her father.
The Giudice’s family lawyer James J. Leonard has declined to comment on this report.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
