Which ’90 Day Fiancé’ Couples Broke Up During the K-1 Visa Process? (PHOTOS)

Stephanie and Ryan, 90 Day Fiancé, Season 8

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.

Over in Roseville, California, daycare assistant Andrew pressures French beauty Amira to quarantine in various countries — first Mexico, where Amira was detained, and then Serbia, which is certainly not a tourist destination — before flying to the States. Will they reunite in time before Amira’s visa expires?

These couples are feeling the emotional pressures of the 90 days. As their clock keeps ticking, let’s take a look back on other couples who called it quits before the K-1 visa was up (and including those married afterwards). Keep scrolling to see the five couples that couldn’t cut it!

Stephanie and Ryan, 90 Day Fiancé, Season 8

Stephanie & Ryan (Season 8)

Status: Split

Stephanie, from Grand Rapids, MI, broke up with beau Ryan, from Ladyville, Belize, after accusing him of cheating. But then Stephanie came under scrutiny when it appeared she was dating Ryan’s cousin, Harris.

Stephanie took to social media to reveal that her cheating scandal was fake and that she split up with Ryan before filming began.

Andrew and Amira, 90 Day Fiancé, Season 8

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.

90 Day Fiancé, Narkyia & Olulowo

Narkyia & Olulowo (Season 4)

Status: Married

Narkyia, from Camp Hill, PA, broke up with Olulowo, from Lagos, Nigeria, 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 they welcomed daughter Nifemi Denise in August 2020.

90 Day Fiancé, Nicole & Azan

Nicole & Azan (Season 4)

Status: Split

Nicole, from Bradenton, FL, fell for Azan, from Agadir, Morocco, and traveled to see him with her daughter May in tow, as 90 Day fans saw in Seasons 4 and 5. 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.

The couple is no longer together. Nicole confirmed her split from Azan in July 2021.


Mursel Mistanoğlu TLC 90 Day Fiancé

Anna & Mursel

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.

Michael + Angela_90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After

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?.
