90 Day Fiancé has produced its fair share of happy endings. Yes, that's surprising given the show is all about people moving to a foreign country, usually after meeting online, and getting married within three months. But, for every Russ and Paola, there's a Colt and Larissa. Not every story ends well.

In season one of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, which is about Americans going to another country, 90 Day veterans Paul and Karine have hit quite the rough patch. Originally from 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days seasons one and two, Paul and Karine moved over to The Other Way Paul decided to move to Brazil after marrying Karine, who later became pregnant.

However, a translation error put a snag in his visa application and the country of Brazil thinks he's a convicted terrorist (he said he was really just charged with terroristic threats in the US after he said he was going to slit somebody's tires).

"90 Day Fiance" Stars Russ & Paola Talk Baby Axel

Recent episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way have featured Paul and Karine fighting over Karine's conversations with American men who send her money. After a fight, he went to a hotel and she left with her mom on a five-day boat trip back to their other apartment and told her mother she wanted to get the ball rolling on a divorce. Paul soon followed and instead of making amends, which a very pregnant Karine was ready to do, they fought more.

Where do they stand? That remains to be seen. See the status of other 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Day cast members below. We'll update the status of 90 Day: The Other Way couples after the season ends.
