90 Day Fiance star Paul Staehle hoped he could save his marriage to Karine Martins on Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, so did he succeed? Did Paul and Karine split up or are they still together and married?
[90 Day Fiance Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers revealing if Karine and Paul if the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? couple has reconciled again and the latest on whether they are still together now.]
Paul, a 35-year-old from Louisville, KY, and Karine, a 23-year-old from Tonantins, Brazil, first appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. They subsequently appeared on Season 1 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
Paul and Karine met on a dating app and communicated for over a year, despite there being a language barrier, before Paul flew to Brazil and meet Karine in-person for the first time.
Although Paul and Karine had to overcome cultural differences and struggled to hold a conversation, they still fell in love and tied the knot in 2017.
After Karine suffered through multiple devastating miscarriages, she and Paul announced they had their first child on the way in October 2018. By the end of that month, Paul revealed Karine was pregnant with a baby boy.
Paul and Karine hoped the pregnancy would bring them closer together, but Karine threatened to file for divorce shortly before the couple’s son Pierre was born on March 22, 2019.
Karine complained she and Paul were fighting constantly, and she hated when Paul accused her of talking to other men. She didn’t feel loved, trusted or supported.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s first season even showed Karine and her mother leaving Paul alone in Tonantins and traveling to Manaus via boat to file for divorce.
However, Karine welcomed Paul to be by her side when she gave birth in a hospital. Paul’s performance impressed Karine that day, and so she gave him another chance thinking he’d be a good father.
