90 Day Fiance star Paul Staehle is afraid Karine Martins is going to leave him and return to Brazil with their son Pierre on Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, so did Karine follow through with the plan and dump Paul or is the couple still together and married?
[90 Day Fiance Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers that reveal if Karine and Paul are still together and the latest about 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? couple.]
Paul, a 35-year-old from Louisville, KY, and Karine, a 23-year-old from Tonantins, Brazil, appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days as well as Season 1 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
The pair met on a dating app and talked for over a year before Paul traveled to Brazil to get to know Karine better.
Paul and Karine fell for each other quickly and got married in 2017, and then Karine announced she was pregnant with her first child in October 2018 after suffering several miscarriages. That same month, the couple revealed they had a baby boy on the way.
But shortly before baby Pierre was born on March 22, 2019, Karine threatened to file for divorce from Paul because she was tired of fighting with him over his apparent trust and jealousy issues.
Karine didn’t feel supported or loved, but Paul insisted he was doing everything he could for his wife.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s first season featured Karine and her mother leaving Paul behind in Tonantins and traveling to Manaus via boat to file for divorce shortly before Pierre was born.
However, Karine decided to give Paul another chance because at the root of their relationship was love — and she also thought Paul really stepped it up in the delivery room and stuck by her side.
Paul and Karine had been married for two years by the time Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? filmed. The couple had been in Brazil for over a year but Paul said they were “barely getting by.”
Paul and Karine therefore planned to move to the United States so Paul could get a job and make more money. He also wanted to give Pierre a better life.
“It took a lot, but I was able to sponsor Karine on a CR-1 visa, which is a spousal visa and allows Karine to apply and get a two-year Green Card before she even enters America,” Paul told the cameras.
“She already has her Green Card approved; she is a complete permanent resident.”
Karine, however, wasn’t looking forward to leaving Brazil and being so far away from her family. Her spirit was also deflated when she found out Paul’s mother Mary wasn’t going to help them out or give them money.
