After Jenni "JWoww" Farley divorced from her fellow Jersey Shore castmate and husband Roger Matthews, it didn't take long for her to move on. Her new boyfriend, Zack Clayton Carpinello, aka "24," joined the cast of Jersey Shore Family Vacation quickly and the couple went through some ups and some downs.
While Zack had seemed like a better match for her than Roger, are they still together?
JWoww and Zack are planning on jumping the broom.
It goes without saying that building a successful and healthy relationship takes hard work and two people that really want to be together. And while JWoww and Zack did split briefly, the two are stronger than ever. In fact, they are making plans to tie the knot!
Things were shaky between the two after Zack was inappropriate with castmate, and there was no telling if their relationship would survive. After all, JWoww is a no-nonsense type of girl and she has no problems cutting things off if need be. However, they were able to salvage their relationship and even decided that they want to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
On their respective Instagram accounts, the couple shared that they got engaged last month after two years of dating. Naturally, fans and supporters were happy to see the couple take the next step in their relationship.
"On 2.27 I said yes on the top of the Empire State Building @zackclayton," JWoww captioned an Instagram post that showed them kissing and drinking champagne as they admired the view.
While many fans are happy that they two decided to get engaged, some people are not so supportive of their union. And it's due to a variety of things, such as Zack being inappropriate with a castmate. After all, some things can't be forgotten.
Some people are upset that JWoww and Pauly D are not together, while others are not fans of Zack simply because they think that the star is too young for her.

Lol JWOWW is engaged to a dude who’s half her age and I’m pretty sure they’ve already broken up before. That’ll last 🤣🤣🤣🤣— V (@listenin_to_me) March 9, 2021
While JWoww and Zack are happily coupled up, his misstep with Angelina Pivarnick almost cost him his relationship.
We can all agree that things were initially going well for JWoww and Zack. But that all changed once Zack seemed to get too friendly with one of JWoww's castmates.
In an episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation that aired in October 2019, everyone who watched saw Zack wrap his arms around co-star Angelina's waist in a way that bordered on romantic, while JWoww was passed out on the couch. The camera caught the moment and aired it in a way that made JWoww look oblivious to the incident — and she was.
She later revealed in an Instagram post that she saw it for the first time when everyone else saw it — meaning neither Zack nor Angelina had told her about it beforehand. Given that there are months between filming and when these shows air, it was kept secret for a long time.
"After seeing tonight's episode, I'm pretty hurt," JWoww said in a notes-app post on Instagram. "I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me. For 5 months I was kept in the dark about this. For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a storyline that will forever haunt me."
Zack then took to his own Instagram to issue an apology, both to JWoww and those who watched the episode.
"I made mistakes that I cannot take back, which I take full responsibility for," he wrote in his own notes-app post. "Jenni does not deserve any damage from anybody else. This is on me. I sincerely apologize to Jenni. I apologize to Angelina as well."
But while he promised to "make it certain that nothing like this ever happen again [sic]," JWoww broke it off the next day.
"One thing I learned from tonight's episode is know your value," she wrote. "Don't ever lower your standard."
But just two months later, they got back together.
In October 2019, People revealed that they had gotten back together.
While neither of them publicly addressed their decision to get back together, they confirmed their reconciliation when Zack posted a photo with JWoww.
“You mean absolutely everything to me,” he captioned the post. “You are my world. You are tremendously special in so many ways. You are an absolutely gorgeous woman inside and out. We are incredible together, and I want to be by your side for the rest of time. I love you @jwoww.”
And Zack has definitely been on the straight and narrow ever since the unfortunate incident — and we love to see it.
This marriage will be JWoww's second trip down the aisle as she was married to Roger for four years. This will be Zack's first marriage.
