Below is the latest on each couple currently starring on Season 7 of90 Day Fiance:
ANNA AND MURSEL
With only 20 days to wed remaining, Anna was feeling pretty devastated over the demise of her relationship. Anna was angry with Mursel's family for not accepting her three sons, and Mursel admitted his family was "very bad" and "very aggressive."
Anna was disappointed that age 38, Mursel wasn't willing to stand up to his parents and just marry her for the sake of their love and happiness.
Mursel felt a lot of pressure from all sides because while he wanted to be with Anna, it's against Turkish culture to marry a woman with children. Mursel had no intention to battle his family wishes, and so he planned to return to Turkey.
Anna then told her mother Charlene that Mursel had called off the wedding since his parents didn't approve of their union. Anna's mother called the drama "bullsh-t," especially since Mursel had known about Anna's boys before traveling to the United States.
Charlene accused Mursel of breaking her daughter's heart and going back to Turkey as if nothing was wrong. Charlene was angry, but Mursel explained his family needed to come first.
Anna's two youngest boys, Leo and Gino, heard the news first, and they looked pretty upset -- which made Mursel feel bad and guilty.
Anna's youngest son Leo was especially sad and thought Mursel could be a man -- and a grown up -- and just stand up to his parents. Gino thought Mursel was annoying sometimes, but he had grown accustomed to the idea of Mursel sticking around.
"I thought he would help me a lot, and now he's leaving," Gino vented to the cameras.
Charlene bragged she had known all along Anna's romance would "end up in tragedy," so her only concern going forward was figuring out how to get Mursel "the hell out of here."
Mursel appeared torn, saying he wanted to marry Anna but now their relationship was over. Mursel insisted he didn't have a choice and had to return to Turkey.
Anna later told her son Joey that the wedding was off. Mursel was staying in a hotel before his trip home, and Anna admitted to her son that she was angry because Mursel wasn't making decisions for himself as a grown man.
Joey agreed Mursel's parents shouldn't control him, but he thought Anna's romance was a bad idea to begin with. Joey said his mother never thought things through or considered all possible outcomes, and so he was disappointed in Anna for putting their family through this.
"[Joey] got his wish. Mursel is leaving," Anna said in a confessional.
Mursel's family wanted him to marry a woman in Turkey, but he said he loved Anna and didn't want a Turkish girl. Mursel, however, felt the need to obey his parents.
Anna called Mursel "weak" and was so mad at him, so she refused to speak to him on the phone.
"If we really cannot be together, I want you gone," Anna told Mursel via text.
Mursel said he felt lonely and sad in the hotel room. He was in a foreign land and wished he could spend his final days in America with Anna, but she continued to write him angry messages.
When Mursel called Anna later on, she simply said, "I don't like you. We are finished."
Mursel cried in his hotel room, but Anna continued to insist their relationship was over.
"I want to kiss her because I love her. I couldn't sleep at all. All the time I am thinking about this. I am physically finished," Mursel vented in a confessional.
ANGELA AND MICHAEL
Angela admitted she was losing her mind. She had apparently been "a hot mess" ever since learning Michael's K-1 visa had been denied. Angela said her heart was crying but she was prepared to "fight like hell" to get her man over to the United States.
Angela's heart was broken but she couldn't accept her relationship ending this way.
However, Angela met with her lawyer and learned Michael had yet to receive an official denial. Instead, it was just recommended that Michael's visa be denied.
Angela discovered she had some options. After receiving a denial or a request for more evidence, Angela's lawyer explained she could appeal the decision and then file some additional information.
For instance, Angela could divulge how much time she spent talking to Michael on the phone and through video chat, which included staying up late into the night.
The lawyer revealed 60 percent of appealed cases end up being granted visas but the process would take another six months. Angela and Michael also had the opportunity to reapply for the K-1 visa again, which was a daunting task in Angela's mind and made her furious.
"I am 54 this year. I work hard, and if I want to get married in the United States of America, I have the right to do that," Angela argued.
"It's my tax-paying right! It's our choice whether they're scamming us, using us or not to bring them over here if we can afford them. It's that simple. Quit protecting people who don't need to be protected. I protect myself."
If Angela went over to Nigeria and married Michael over there, she'd be looking at another year for a spousal visa to be granted. Angela's lawyer also warned her a divorce would be very complicated if she chooses to wed in Nigeria.
Angela really wanted her sick mother to witness her wedding, and she said she couldn't afford to fly her family members over to Nigeria. It seemed like the best choice was to file an appeal and hopefully win it.
If Angela lost the appeal, she could file for the K-1 visa again and face about 18 more months away from Michael. And if Angela got married in Nigeria, she'd be looking at 18 months or maybe even two more years away from her fiance.
Angela felt robbed of her time with Michael, and she decided to fly to Nigeria to get to the bottom of things. Angela told her lawyer that Michael was "broken" over the news, and so was she. At this point, Angela just wanted to be with Michael.
Later on, Angela packed for her trip to Nigeria and she was stressed out.
Angela kissed her family goodbye with the intention of staying in Nigeria for two weeks. Angela was on a quest for more information, particularly in regards to Michael's interview for the K-1 visa.
Michael then met with an immigration lawyer to show Angela he was trying his best to reach a solution.
Michael was advised against doing an appeal because chances of his visa being accepted were allegedly slim.
"They hold the decision of the consulate officer in very high regard," the lawyer explained.
"It will be very difficult for them to overturn that decision. So I would advise you to get married here and then apply for the K-3... spousal visa."
Michael needed to convince the visa officer his intentions were 100 percent genuine, and so the lawyer said Michael's best chance of going to the United States was to get married in Nigeria first.
BLAKE AND JASMIN
Blake was working a lot and so Jasmin was spending a lot of time with his mother. Jasmin, however, wanted to move out soon, so she never allowed herself to get really settled.
Jasmin ate and drank healthy since she did gymnastics and worked as a personal trainer, but Blake's mother wanted her to help cook a spicy, seasoned meal.
Jasmin told Kerline that she wanted to become a social-media influencer but she had time to figure things out since it would take a while for her work visa to come in. Kerline was a bit concerned Jasmin didn't have a plan in place to help her son with their bills.
Jasmin hadn't spoken to her parents about her upcoming wedding, but she figured they would not pay for it, much to Kerline's dismay. Jasmin planned on just having a small ceremony in which she could wear a white cocktail dress.
Jasmin was looking forward to Blake's mother and stepdad moving out, and she hoped that would happen soon.
TANIA AND SYNGIN
Syngin hated fighting with Tania, especially when they couldn't resolve the argument.
Since he was feeling bored and alone, Syngin decided to visit with Tania's sister, Tiana, and her baby. Syngin wanted to prove he was warming up to the idea of welcoming children.
Syngin admitted he was frustrated Tania didn't want to talk to him much while she was in Costa Rica, and he said Tania checking in with him after a long night out of partying was a simple notion and request.
Syngin was clearly sad, and Tiana said her sister wasn't following through with "basic-level communication" in her relationship. Syngin just wanted to make sure his fiancee was safe, and Tiana didn't think there was anything wrong with that.
Syngin worried Tania might be getting cold feet about the wedding because they still had a lot to figure out, but Tiana assured the South Africa native Tania loved him a lot.
Syngin was also concerned Tania might be cheating on him because she got flirty when she drinks, but since Tania had apparently been cheated on before, Tiana thought that was unlikely.
During Tania's last week in Costa Rica, she went out partying with her girlfriends. Tania explained to the cameras she didn't have a lot of time for Syngin and loved to flirt.
Tania danced with her salsa teacher at a club and said she's allowed to look, but not touch. Tania FaceTimed with Syngin and told her fiance that she was having a good time drinking.
Syngin admitted Tania "seemed a little bit all over the place" and he just wanted her to be safe and answer his calls. Syngin asked Tania to let him know when she got home, but Tania wouldn't make any promises.
Syngin didn't feel like he was asking too much from Tania, but she didn't want to make any promises she couldn't keep. Tania was very independent and didn't feel the need to answer to Syngin.
Syngin told Tania that she was being selfish, and then Tania joked that she could schedule messages -- which angered and irritated her man waiting for her in the United States.
Tania said she loved Syngin but couldn't meet his needs and needed more breathing room.
The next day, Tania woke up to a lot of missed calls, and the pair had the same fight again. Tania argued Syngin was "too much," but all Syngin was asking for was a call at the end of the night to show she's safe and secure.
"I came here. I have changed my whole life around. You have not changed much about your life at all," Syngin said over FaceTime. "Do you want a boyfriend who doesn't care?"
"You're not my father," Tania said. "I love that you care... but I can't give you everything that you need."
Tania understood where Syngin was coming from, and she told the cameras she needed to get better at checking in with Syngin after a night out of partying. However, Tania wasn't willing to give Syngin more attention since she felt she already gave him a lot.
Syngin acknowledged he and Tania had some things to work out before getting married.
"Am I doing the wrong thing? Am I doing the right thing? I honestly don't know," Tania said in a confessional.
ROBERT AND ANNY
Robert was still upset with Anny because he didn't want to party and have a threesome.
Robert was then shown picking up his little sister Robin at the airport, and he said she's fun, outgoing and super cool. Robin couldn't wait for Robin to meet Anny, but Robert was a little nervous about it since he still had some thinking to do about whether to get married.
Robert was questioning his relationship with Anny because of the way she acted sometimes.
Robin admitted Robert tended to pick the wrong girls, but she thought it was normal for there to be bumps in the road since her brother and Anny were still getting to know each other better.
"To be honest, I don't know if I'm ready to get married yet. It's still up in the air. I don't know what to do," Robert said in a confessional.
Robin and Anny had a warm meeting, and Anny said she really liked Robin and felt comfortable around her.
Anny vented about how Robert had promised her nice clothes and a two-bedroom apartment, but Robin told Anny that Robert was "poor" -- a statement which Robert disagreed with. Robin explained it would just take time for Robert to make money before he could spend it.
Robin said Anny's expectations were too high, especially since Robert was raising a son by himself.
"He have to give me more sex because I don't come here to play games only," Anny added. "He's only sleeping and sleeping and sleeping. I don't want that. I want to have sex every day -- sometimes three times a day."
Robin told Robert to compromise and sex his girl up, but Robert said he woke up at 5AM every day and came home late after working all day. Robert thought Anny was demanding because she wanted to be intimate three or four times a day.
"I'm not a machine," Robert complained.
Robin realized her brother's relationship wasn't great and he and Anny needed to find some common ground or at least agree to disagree in order to avoid further conflict.
Anny was later shown shopping for a sexy, mermaid wedding dress with a train. She wanted to look sexy and elegant, and Robin helped her to pick something out.
Robert was willing to give Anny $400 for a dress, so Robin only allowed Anny to try on dresses within that budget. Robin said Anny wouldn't be disappointed if she could only try on dresses Robert could afford.
Anny ended up finding the perfect dress for her. It had a big keyhole in the chest, and Anny said she felt like a doll in the form-fitting dress.
Anny cried in her dress and thanked Robin for being by her side. Anny wished her mother could have been there, but Anny's mother had apparently passed away.
Robin was "stoked" to have gained a sister, and Anny had a lot of fun shopping for dresses. She felt like a queen.
MIKE AND NATALIE
Mike and Natalie had argued over religion and how to raise their children, so they had a lot to work on and discuss. Mike was tired of the drama and didn't want to fight anymore.
Mike decided to wake up early and find out more information about the status of Natalie's K-1 visa. Mike said his time with Natalie had been stressful and nerve-wracking, and he wanted more answers since the anticipation of the visa was killing him.
Mike paid a visit to the Embassy but learned his case was classified and still pending. Mike didn't understand what the hold-up was, and he began wondering if Natalie was keeping a secret from him.
Over a cup of coffee later that day, Mike flat out asked Natalie if there was something in her past she wasn't telling him. Natalie said everything was fine on her side, but Michael continued to push.
"It's just frustrating, baby," Mike complained.
"Is there anything you have not been telling me? Did you lie about your background check? Did you apply for another visa [without] telling me? Have you ever applied for another K-1 visa? I need to know. Have you ever been to America?"
Natalie said she had never applied for a K-1 visa before, and she was very upset Mike was peppering her with questions. Natalie said she was clean and Mike had ruined their great time together.
Natalie angrily left the table and headed to the bathroom. Mike didn't want to make Natalie upset or press her too hard, but he felt like his questions needed to be asked.
"It wasn't my intention to put blame on her. I didn't like making her feel that way," Mike told the cameras.
Mike's frustrations were just piling up, and he said he felt a lot of pressure.
Natalie simply didn't like Mike making her feel like she was a liar, and she told the cameras he needed to trust her. Natalie didn't want to move to America for a man who didn't even trust her, and she said the situation was "too much."
EMILY AND SASHA
Emily's sister Betsy asked Sasha if he used to party a lot, and it was becoming increasingly more clear Emily's family didn't trust him. Sasha tried to be nice, but Betsy hit him with some tough questions.
Sasha told Betsy that his parents loved Emily and it was his first fiancee they actually loved. Sasha insisted his parents loved Emily because of her personality, not just because she's American.
Sasha admitted he got two women pregnant before marrying them, and the news shocked Betsy. Betsy was afraid of Sasha's pattern, but Sasha insisted Betsy just didn't know him well enough.
Emily's mother Karen wasn't concerned about Sasha's past, saying all she cared about was how Sasha took care of Emily and their son David.
Over a couple glasses of wine, Betsy warned Sasha that marriage is a lifetime commitment. Although Sasha had two wives before, Sasha told the cameras Emily was different and it wasn't fair Betsy kept "poking" him with questions and doubts.
Sasha said he loved, respected and trusted Emily. He said his first two marriages failed due to a lack of respect. Betsy was afraid Sasha would break Emily's heart, but she decided to give the guy a chance.
Later on, Sasha asked Emily to stop eating certain foods for the sake of her health and fitness. Sasha didn't want his future wife eating junk food because he wanted them to be and look healthy.
Sasha started throwing away food in Betsy's house, which didn't go over well with anyone. Betsy accused Sasha of shaming Emily for her pregnancy weight gain.
"You guys don't have jobs yet, so it's stupid to throw out food," Betsy said.
"No, it's just your excuse. This food deserves trash," Sasha noted.
"You deserve the trash," Betsy snapped, later adding that she didn't like Sasha telling her sister what to do.
Sasha felt trapped in Betsy's home because it was clear Emily's sister didn't like him. Sasha said he felt like he was in a prison and things were just getting worse and worse.
Emily told Betsy that Sasha was just in a bad mood and it was going to take time for him to get used to life in America. Emily said Sasha's concerns were coming from a place of love, but Betsy insisted that's what everyone says who's in an unhealthy relationship.
Betsy wanted Sasha to return to Russia, and this was not how Emily had imagined her first week in America playing out. Emily didn't know what to do, but she begged Betsy to give Sasha a chance.
Emily didn't want the situation to become more awkward, so Emily said they could move out. With that being said, Betsy promised Emily that she'd be there for her if and when her relationship failed.
