90 Day Fiancé viewers were certain these couples would break up, but they surprised everyone by sticking together and making their relationships last.
Newcomers to the 90 Day Fiancé fandom are often shocked to find out that many of the show’s couples are in successful relationships, though some have surprised viewers with their happy endings more than others. There are some couples on the show who are clearly together for love but there are others who fans expect to break up before the season is over. Still, sometimes even the most dubious of couples manage to make it work.
On 90 Day Fiancé, a common concern is that the show’s foreign cast members are only with their current partner because they want a green card. When a couple’s relationship seems to be rocky, many fans assume the foreign partner is out for citizenship and speculate that the couple won’t stand the test of time. However, viewers are often surprised when those 90 Day Fiancé couples last a long time and manage to make their relationships work.
When crafting storylines, the show often includes the most dramatic and explosive moments from a couple’s relationship because producers feel it makes for more compelling television. But that approach doesn’t always provide a complete portrayal of the cast members’ lives. The result is viewers often being surprised when volatile couples from the show have successful relationships. These are the couples whose happy endings were the most shocking to fans.
Narkyia Lathan & Olulowo Shodipe
Because Narkyia and Olulowo’s relationship started out with lies, most viewers assumed that their relationship would never last. The couple’s explosive fights on the show only reinforced that opinion. But after 90 Day Fiancé season 4, Narkyia and Olulowo are still together and happily married. The couple welcomed a daughter, Nifemi, in 2020 and look like they are living their best lives.
Matt Ryan & Alla Fedoruk
Many fans saw red flags in Matt and Alla’s relationship, largely because of the unconventional way they started dating and Alla’s inability to say “I love you” to her fiancé. However, Matt and Alla must be laughing at their haters because the two of them are still married and have been growing their family. Alla’s son from a previous relationship has joined his mother in the U.S., and the couple also welcomed a daughter and are expecting another baby.
David Toborowsky & Annie Suwan
There were a lot of issues early on in David and Annie’s relationship, largely due to David’s lackluster finances. Annie seemed miserable when she first came to the U.S. and David’s drinking was a big problem in their relationship. Many viewers doubted they’d make it down the aisle, but recently David and Annie celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. The couple has become one of the franchise’s greatest success stories and their critics have been proven wrong.
Josh & Aika Batterson
On 90 Day Fiancé season 5, Josh and Aika had a major roadblock in their relationship—Aika, then 36, desperately wanted to start trying to have a baby but Josh had gotten a vasectomy. Despite not fully resolving the issue, the couple got married at the end of the season and most viewers were certain Josh and Aika would break up over the baby issue. However, the couple is still married and living in Arizona, though they are still childless.
Eric Rosenbrook & Leida Margaretha
Eric and Leida are an enormously disliked couple from the franchise, but that’s not why fans doubted that their relationship would last. Leida came from a wealthy family and was used to a much higher standard of living than Eric could provide for her in America. Leida also butted heads with Eric’s daughter and even got a restraining order against her. Despite their many difficulties, Eric and Leida are still together—much to the chagrin of fans.
Anna Campisi & Mursel Mistanoglu
On 90 Day Fiancé season 7, Anna and Mursel faced major hurdles in their relationship, including the fact that Anna’s kids couldn’t stand Mursel and Mursel hadn’t told his family in Turkey that his new fiancé Anna had children from a previous relationship. Though the couple briefly broke up on the show, they eventually got married and are still going strong. Recently Anna revealed she and Mursel want more kids and are trying to have a baby via surrogate.
Robert Springs & Anny Francisco
Many viewers had doubts about Robert and Anny’s relationship, mainly because the couple had spent so little time together before getting engaged. When Anny arrived in the U.S., fans were even more sure the relationship wouldn’t last because they seemed so mismatched—Anny enjoys expensive things and Robert prefers a more low-key lifestyle. However, the couple has proved their haters wrong and recently Robert and Anny welcomed their second baby together.
Blake Abelard & Jasmin Lahtinen
Fans were certain that Jasmin was using Blake for a green card when she first got to America because her cold and aloof attitude made it seem like she didn’t care about her fiancé. Her situation was even more suspicious because her sister had already gotten U.S. citizenship and Jasmin clearly wanted to join her in America. But after season 7, Blake and Jasmin are still together and seem to be very happy. Perhaps Jasmin’s attitude is much different when the cameras aren’t rolling.
Jenny Slatten & Sumit Singh
Jenny and Sumit first started talking in 2012 and they are shockingly still dating despite the fact that still have not gotten married. Almost a decade has passed since their first interaction and many fans are surprised that Sumit has managed to keep Jenny in limbo as long as he has. Viewers who assumed Jenny would eventually reach her limit have been proven wrong and the couple is still dating despite it seeming like Sumit never intends to marry Jenny.
The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has seen a lot of couples with troubled relationships. Many of them never should have gotten together in the first place, and by the time they appear on the show, it seems like a breakup is inevitable. But even the most suspect of couples can surprise fans with how they manage to make their relationships work in the real world. Though it may be shocking to see that these couples have stayed together, their happiness and growing families are a nice surprise.
