In 2014, TLC started a brand-new reality TV show called 90 Day Fiancé. The series was highly controversial because its basis was that couples from different countries who met had 90 days to get married so they could earn the work visas necessary to remain in the United States.
By law, after 90 days, one of the people would have to leave the United States and return to their home country.
The show deals with the struggles to get married in that time frame to secure the work visas -- which only gave the couple a limited period to decide if they really loved each other enough to walk the aisle.
There were many obvious roadblocks in the way. Family members and friends rightfully distrusted some of the individuals, thinking that they were just getting married to get into the country.
There were also the cultural differences, as those individuals raised in America had to understand their new loves upbringing and beliefs while the two try to become one in their relationship.
Of course, this didn't always work out but there is a high percentage of people who made their marriages last through the five seasons of the reality series.
While there are those who have made their marriages work, it has not been without problems, and while some are happily raising new families, others are still working on their happily ever after stories.
Here are the 15 90 Day Fiancé Couples That Are Still Together (And 5 That Split).
20 Still together: RUSS AND PAOLO
Russ and Paolo appeared on 90 Day Fiancé in the very first season of the series. Russ was from Oklahoma and he met Pao when he was in Colombia on an assignment from the oil company he worked for.
The two fell in love and Pao, a fashion designer, prepared to move to the United States to marry him.
The two married and lived in Oklahoma until Pao left for Miami to be a model. However, while Russ stayed in Oklahoma initially, he soon joined her in Miami.
The two later appeared in 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After and were still married, although the show dealt with some tragedy that they two had to get through in their lives.
However, they remain together and strongly united.
19 Still together: ALAN AND KIRLYAM
Appearing in season one of 90 Day Fiancé, Alan and Kirlyam married after their appearance on the show.
Alan is from California and was on a mission to Brazil with the Church of Latter Day Saints when he met her. She then moved to the U.S. to live with him and ended up getting married.
The two walked the aisle in Alan's church and have remained together since that time. While there were some problems when Kirlyam wanted to model and Alan did not approve, they worked through the disagreements and remain strongly united.
Kirlyam has still been unable to gain employment in the United States because she is still waiting to receive her green card.
The two actually welcomed their first child into the world last year -- a son named Liam in October 2017.
18 Still together: MIKE AND AZIZA
Mike met the Russian Aziza in season one of 90 Day Fiancé when he was surfing around online on a language acquisition website.
The two were just friends at first but Aziza wanted to get a work visa in the United States and received a rejection, and it was at that time that the two began to look into a more romantic relationship.
While that seems a little suspicious, they actually made it work.
She moved to the United States in 2014 and the two remain married, although they have still yet to agree on expanding their family.
They do have a houseful of pets, but Aziza is still waiting to make the decision to bring a child into the world with her husband.
Despite this, they have been married for three years and live in Cleveland.
17 Split: CHELSEA AND YAMIR
Chelsea met Yamir while she was doing volunteer work in Nicaragua. Interestingly, Yamir was part of a boy band and then moved to the United States with Chelsea to live with her and her parents.
The two had problems early on, as Yamir wanted to continue his music career and Chelsea didn't want to risk moving to Chicago to let him do so without a job to fall back on.
These fears are part of what helped to split the couple apart.
In 2016, Chelsea filed for divorce from Yamir due to "irreconcilable differences" just two years after they tied the knot. Neither asked for spousal support and their marriage was ended quietly.
Neither of the former 90 Day Fiancé cast members commented on the full problems that led to their separation and eventual divorce.
16 Still together: LOUIS ROY AND AYA
Louis and Aya actually met on the internet using an online dating service. He was from Indiana and she was from the Philippines, and while he originally wanted to move down to live with her, she chose to move to the United States.
This was partially due to the fact that he had two children from a previous relationship.
This 90 Day Fiancé couple is one that has seems to live with none of the drama expected from the reality TV show.
Not only is this season one couple still happy and together, but they announced this year that they are expecting their first child as a couple.
The two promised at the start to work hard to love each other every day, and they have succeeded at that.
15 Still together: JUSTIN AND EVELIN
Justin and Evelin are a 90 Days Fiance season 2 couple who met each other while attending the 2013 World Games rugby tournament.
The couple revealed that they fell in love after just seven days and she moved to the United States to marry him.
It wasn't an easy start, as the show revealed him to be demanding of a "proper wife" who cooked and cleaned, and Evelin was not that person.
The two seemed to make it work out anyway, and are still married today, over three years since the wedding.
The two still seem to be living the high life, as photos from just last year showed them on a tour of the Napa Valley wine country, with Evelin revealing she is looking forward to more happy years with Justin.
14 Still together: BRETT AND DAYA
Washington native Brett met Daya by using an online dating service. Daya, who lived in the Philippines, moved to the United States to marry Brett, who was divorced and had a daughter from his previous marriage.
This was not the strongest union at first, mostly due to Brett's mother refusing to accept the marriage and refusing to attend the wedding.
However, the two have proven that they were in love and their marriage has worked.
Not only have they remained married for three years now, but they welcomed their first child together into the world in 2017 with Isabella.
Brett also has a podcast where he talks about his marriage and family life since they appeared on the reality series, although Daya seems intent on staying out of the spotlight.
13 Split: DANIELLE AND MOHAMED
Danielle and Mohamed were possibly the most polarizing couple on 90 Day Fiancé and their split was likely the most memorable and crazy when it came to anyone who appeared on the TV series.
Danielle was from Ohio and she met Mohamed in an online chat room. Mohamed, from Tunisia, moved to Ohio to marry Danielle, who had four children from other relationships -- one of which was already an adult.
Mohamed lied to Danielle from the start when he said he had a job but was actually unemployed. Danielle also lied about parts of her past and the two quickly split.
The judge in their separation convinced her to just file for divorce so Mohamed could remain in the United States, but Danielle is still publicly bashing him online and still uses his last name.
12 Still together: JASON AND CASSIA
Jason and Cassia have split and reunited a few times over their marriage. Jason was living in Florida when he met Cassia, who was sharing an online relationship with one of his friends.
Cassia, from Brazil, started dating Jason when her relationship with that friend ended and she moved to the United States to live with him and his father.
Early in 2018, Jason filed for divorce amidst filed charges against him.
The two actually said that they were not willing to work through their problems and Cassia said that he looked at the charges against him as a joke. However, something changed after that.
Jason withdrew his divorce petition and the two are working on making their marriage work once again.
11 Still together: DANNY AND AMY
Danny and Amy met in season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé while the two were on a Bible study trip in Austrailia at the same time.
Danny was from Pennsylvania and Amy was from South Africa, and the two fell in love. Amy moved to America to marry Danny and lived with his brother until their marriage.
The couple was married and ended up moving to Texas together to raise their family. That union now includes two children -- one boy (Jedidiah) and a girl (Anna), and they seem very happy as a family.
As a matter of fact, they posted a very joyous Instagram photo late last year of the family heading out for a "much-needed" vacation to visit family, saying that their "heart is full."
10 Still together: MARK AND NIKKI
Mark and Nikki was a very controversial pairing from the third season of 90 Day Fiancé. Mark was a 58-year-old from Baltimore when he started to date Nikki, a 19-year-old from the Philippines.
Not only was there an almost 40-year age difference, but Mark has four adult children that were all older than Nikki.
The two married but there is almost no chance that TLC will promote anything about the couple in the future.
The series painted Mark as a very controlling husband and that angered him so he filed multiple lawsuits against the network and the TV show.
The lawsuits were thrown out, and while the couple has left the public eye when it comes to celebrity fame, they remain married according to various reports.
9 Split: MOLLY AND LUIS
When it comes to the relationship between Molly and Luis, it didn't last long at all. They met on the fifth season of 90 Day Fiancé, which aired in 2017. Molly, from Georgia, met Luis at a bar he worked at when she visited the Dominican Republic.
Luis, 15 years younger than Molly, got married within the 90 days for his visa period, although they never had a wedding.
Luis ended up leaving Molly during the season for a myriad of reasons. He did not get along with her two children and did not want to be a father.
He did return for the finale of season 5, but then in January 2018, Molly filed for divorce from Luis.
The divorce was finalized in May and Luis remained in the United States but lives in a different state that Molly.
8 Still together: MELANIE AND DEVAR
Devar was a lifeguard at a resort in Jamaica when Melanie met him while vacationing there. Melanie had married before and had a child with her ex-husband.
While she was still there on vacation, and shortly after the two had met, Devar proposed to her and she accepted.
They moved back to Pennsylvania together and while some of Melanie's family did not trust Devar, they married anyway.
Despite the distrust of family and Melanie even talking on 90 Day Fiancé about getting a prenuptial agreement to protect her money, they have remained married and made their union work.
The two later appeared on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After and are not only still married, but have a baby girl that was born in November 2017 named Avah.
7 Still together: JOSH AND ALEKSANDRA
Josh was on a mission trip for the Church of Latter Day Saints in Prague when he met Aleksandra Iarovikova, a Russian who was attending university there.
While Iarovikova was an atheist, she soon found religion and converted to the LDS church. The former go-go dancer turned her life around and started to date Josh, the two getting married in 2015.
The two couple ended up as one of the first 90 Day Fiancé unions to give birth to a child -- which they announced at the reunion episode.
That baby, Kaya, was born in March 2016. Josh started medical school in 2018 and the two have moved to Austrailia, where he attends the University of Queensland and the two remain happily married as they make a new life for themselves in their new country.
6 Still together: NARKYIA AND OLULOWO
Olulowo, a Nigerian, met Narkyla thanks to an online dating service for plus-sized women.
There was controversy in this season four coupling as friends of Narkyla was worried that Olulowo was a scammer and was using her for money -- although he never asked for any.
Their relationship almost ended early when she found out he was trying to get back with an old flame who he had a child with.
However, Olulowo realized that it was Narkyla that he wanted to be with and they reunited and he moved to the United States to marry her. This surprised many people as the couple ignored all the warning signs in their relationship.
The two seemed to have problems in their relationship over the years, but they are still together at this time.
5 Split: JESSE AND DARCEY
Jesse and Darcey were part of the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off Before the 90 Days and the difference was that this series followed the couples before the 90-day visa period.
Instead of focusing on the two getting married before the 90 days was up and allowing the work visas to come through, this one was about the actual start of their relationship together.
This couple shared one of the most tumultuous relationships on the show. This even included Darcey attacking fans online and starting arguments with even those that supported the couple on the series.
Jesse made accusations towards Darcey as well, and this was just the latest of the fights -- both on the series and behind-the-scenes. The two finally separated in March 2018.
4 Still together: MATT AND ALLA
Matt and Alla appeared in 90 Day Fiancé season 4. Matt, from Kentucky, had met Alla, from Kiev, years before when using an online dating service.
However, they lost touch because Matt got married. After Matt divorced his third wife, the two reconnected, and by this time, Alla had a son of her own.
The relationship was hard at first, as Matt talked about being cheated on in the past and Alla made comments that she was not sure she loved him.
Despite this, the two married anyway and live together in Ohio. The two remain together to this day, living in Ohio.
Alla also had her sister move to the United States as well and the two have actually started a new business called the Lash & Brow Studio.
3 Still together: CHANTEL AND PEDRO
Chantel was on a vacation in the Dominican Republic when she met Pedro, after an introduction by a Spanish teacher.
Chantel fell for him and began to make more trips to the Dominican Republic to see him before he finally proposed to her.
The couple faced a lot of problems on the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé mostly due to their individual families disrespecting each other.
While Chantel's family did not trust Pedro and he sent a lot of money back to his family making it look like their marriage was not on the up-and-up, the two were able to create a new life for themselves together.
Chantel is now in nursing school and while her family still doesn't approve of the marriage, it seems to be still going strong.
2 Still together: EVELYN AND DAVID
One of the most recent couples on 90 Day Fiancé to make their marriage work is Evelyn and David from season five.
David is from Spain and Molly from New Hampshire. The biggest controversy from this pairing is that Molly was only 18 when the two met.
David met Molly when he saw something about her band on Facebook and made contact with her.
While David did not want to live in a small town, he ended up moving to New Hampshire anyway and the two married.
The two seemed very innocent, with Molly very young and David a devout Christian that refused to talk about their personal romantic relationship on camera.
The two remain in New Hampshire and married while Evelyn works on her music aspirations.
1 Split: NICOLE AND AZAN
Nicole and Azan were part of two different seasons of 90 Day Fiancé. They started out in season four when they met on an online dating service -- Nicole from Florida and Azan from Morocco.
Nicole left her child with her sister so she could go to Morocco for five weeks to get to know Azan. T
hings were rough from the start, neither agreeing to convert to the other's religion, Nicole admitting to cheating on him, and Azan making disparaging comments about her weight.
Despite this, they agreed to get married but had to put it off since they could not afford the costs of him coming to the United States and Nicole's mother refusing to help.
They remained together, albeit living in different countries until they broke off their wedding plans earlier in 2018.
