Could you marry someone in just three months? TLC reality series 90 Day Fiancé follows long-distance lovebirds as they acclimate to living together in the U.S. before tying the knot through the K-1 visa.

While most 90 Day couples have met in person prior to traveling across continents to be together, not all of these fiancés make it down the aisle during the 90 days. Just look at this current season: Washington native Mike struggles to commit to longtime Ukrainian love Natalie, who finally landed in America with hopes to marry. Season 8 trailers even show Natalie heading to the airport in tears.

Stephanie & Ryan

Well, that was fast. Fifty-two-year-old Michigan spa owner Stephanie broke up with her 27-year-old Belize beau Ryan after accusing him of cheating. As it turns out, Stephanie was the unfaithful one, and she ended up dating Ryan’s cousin, Harris.

Andrew & Amira

Roseville, California daycare worker Andrew was ultimately undeserving of Amira’s amour. The French beauty was detained in Mexico after Andrew’s international quarantine plan failed; eventually Amira traveled once again to Serbia, but after a brutal fight via text with Andrew, Amira pulled the plug on their relationship. Of course Andrew’s insulting ultimatums didn’t help. Amira’s K-1 visa expired, and today she claims to be a toxic relationship survivor on Twitter.

Narkyia & Olulowo

Pennsylvania resident Narkyia brought her virtual love story with Nigerian supposed prince Olulowo to Season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé. Single father Olulowo was shockingly not tied to royalty, and the couple broke up before the 90 days ended (but only after Narkyia discovered Olulowo was trying to rekindle his relationship with the mother of his child). They do have a happy ending though: The couple tied the knot post-show, and welcomed a daughter in August 2020.

Nicole & Azan

Single mom Nicole immediately fell for Moroccan love Azan. Seasons 4 and 5 saw Nicole travel to Morocco with her daughter May in tow, but they didn’t tie the knot in part due to Nicole scrambling to find a K-1 visa sponsor. In fact, Nicole even discussed relocating to Morocco and starting a cosmetics boutique with Azan’s family. Their love story now might be better suited for The Other Way!

Ohioan Anna connected with Mursel online over a shared love for beekeeper. Yet they came to a stinging end after Mursel refused to tell his family back in Turkey about Anna’s three sons. Mursel even returned to Istanbul during the 90 days. Yet, he returned back to the States just in time for a rushed wedding (in under 24 hours!) with Anna.

Angela & Michael

Angela spent two seasons determined to bring Nigerian fiancé Michael to Georgia. Their fiery relationship included passionate fights, threats of a breakup, and even Michael’s infidelity. However the couple continued to preserve, and debated whether to go through with the K-1 visa process or instead apply for a spousal visa. They eventually opted for the latter and Angela said “I do” to Michael in his native Nigeria on Season 5 of Happily Ever After?.
