In an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters, Mary Kay Letourneau Fualaau and Vili Fualaau sit down together on the eve of their 10th wedding anniversary, sharing intimate details about their headline-making marriage. Mary Kay Letourneau Fualaau is the former Seattle-area sixth-grade teacher who, at the age of 34, had an affair with her 13-year-old student, Vili Fualaau, and served seven and a half years for their inappropriate relationship. In the candid interview, Mary Kay tells Walters what makes their marriage work in spite of their huge difference in their age. She also discusses her surprising plans to teach again, as well as her intentions to have her status as a registered sex offender lifted. Vili Fualaau, meanwhile, discusses his bouts with alcoholism, depression and why he believes the system failed him while he was still a minor.

Also, for the first time ever, viewers will meet their two teenage daughters, Audrey and Georgia, who are now older than Vili was when he conceived them. The interview airs on “20/20” on FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 2015 (10:00 – 11:00 pm ET) on the ABC TELEVISION NETWORK.

Letourneau first spoke to Walters in 2004 after being released from prison. At that time, she said that she wanted to marry her former student, who was 13 when their liaison began. “We’ve always planned that and it hasn’t changed,” she told Walters.
