90 Day Fiance couple Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen have been shown living apart and trying to make things work in America on Season 7 of the TLC series, so what happened to the couple -- did they get married and are they still together?
[90 Day Fiance Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out whether Blake and Jasmin got married and are still together.]
Blake, a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer from California, and Jasmin, a 27-year-old model from Finland, are one of the couples starring on 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which premiered in early November 2019.
Blake and Jasmin were introduced on Episode 4 of 90 Day Fiance's latest edition.
Blake and Jasmin first met on a dating app and he was completely taken with her eyes, smile, body, and beauty. Jasmin's profile said she lived in Los Angeles, CA, but she was really from Finland.
"I'm just like, 'Damn okay, this isn't going to work,' but at the same time, I really wanted it to," Blake said on the show.
Blake's family and friends, however, were wary of Jasmin's intentions and whether she might've been using Blake for a Green Card, especially since her sister was already living in L.A.
Regardless of what anyone else thought, Blake applied for Jasmin's K-1 visa anyway and anxiously awaited her arrival.
"I never expected to date a model. It may look like we have nothing in common, but Jasmin and I are meant to be together," Blake said in a promo for the currently-airing 90 Day Fiance season.
But a trailer for 90 Day Fiance that was previously released by TLC also showed the couple getting into a little tiff.
Once he started visiting Jasmin in Finland, she surpassed all of his expectations and he couldn't believe she was the real deal.
Blake said Jasmin is "fun, super smart and can speak multiple languages." He added that she's a gymnast and personal trainer, and he viewed her as "unbelievable."
Blake realized by his third trip to Finland that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Jasmin, and so that's when he proposed marriage to her. Blake was so happy Jasmin said yes, and then her K-1 visa got approved.
Blake's friend Rita had also watched him "rise and fall" in different relationships, and she didn't want him to get taken advantage of again. His mother Kerline was also a bit worried and skeptical.
Blake knew his decision to bring Jasmin to America was risky and unpopular, but in his mind, Jasmin was "perfect" and life together was going to be great. He was 85% sure Jasmin wasn't coming for a Green Card.
Meanwhile, Jasmin's sister Janette couldn't wait to experience Los Angeles with her sibling and best friend. Janette said she didn't know Blake very well, but she looked forward to spending time with him as well.
Jasmin said she was single for three years before she met Blake, who was different from anyone else she had ever dated. Jasmin said she'd never marry a man she's not compatible with, but Blake was going to be the first man she ever lived with.
Once Jasmin and Blake reunited in America, she admitted she liked doing things alone, to which Blake quipped, "Not anymore!"
The pair planned to live with Blake's stepdad and mother, so Blake worried there might be a privacy issue. Blake, however, said his sex life with Jasmin was "great" and he couldn't complain.
Since it had been so long since the couple was together, Blake got them a hotel room for a couple of nights so they could have some privacy.
Jasmin claimed she was so happy to be reunited with Blake, but she just wanted to shower, sleep and relax since she was completely exhausted from traveling. Blake seemed understanding but disappointed.
The next day, Blake and Jasmin met up with Blake's closest friends at the hotel pool.
Jasmin wasn't excited about the pool party because she was still jet-lagged and tired. Jasmin wasn't looking forward to answering a bunch of questions and having to be social and bubbly.
Jasmin ended up being a little quiet at the party, but Blake's friend Darrell could tell Blake really liked her. Blake's friends predicted Jasmin's 90 Days in America were going to be eye-opening for everyone involved.
Jasmin also revealed she doesn't drink any alcohol, which Blake respected. But Blake wanted Jasmin to also respect him when he wanted a drink at certain occasions. Jasmin joked she didn't want Blake's mouth to taste like alcohol when they kissed and so she'd prefer him not to drink either.
During the gathering, Jasmin suddenly wasn't feeling good, so she decided to leave the little party and go back to the hotel room, where she could rest.
"I'm marrying Blake, not his friends," Jasmin told the cameras.
Blake wished Jasmin had pushed through her fatigue a little longer in order to get to know his friends better, but he said he had to accept Jasmin the way she is.
Jasmin insisted she's "a people person" -- as long as she's around people she truly likes.
Jasmin had been happy to return to the hotel room alone, without Blake, which was a little hard for him to hear. Blake wanted Jasmin to need him, but she appeared to be very independent.
Blake thought Jasmin could be "very blunt at times," as she always "voices her opinion." But he figured things would only get better within the next few months of her living in America.
Blake then brought Jasmin to his mother and stepfather's place. Blake explained that once his parents moved into a new home, he and Jasmin would be taking over their apartment. However, Blake had no idea when that move was going to take place.
Jasmin hoped they wouldn't have to wait too long for some privacy, and she just hoped to get along with Blake's parents in the meantime.
When Jasmin met Blake's parents, Kerline thought the model was beautiful yet quiet and reserved.
But Kerline and her husband sat down with Blake and Jasmin to tell them there had been a misunderstanding and some miscommunication.
Blake's parents said they weren't going to allow Blake and Jasmin to live together under the same roof given they're a conservative, Christian family.
Blake's stepfather insisted the situation had nothing to do with Jasmin personally and it just wasn't appropriate or acceptable for Blake and Jasmin to live together before marriage.
"This is how we do things, and you know that," Kerline told Blake and Jasmin.
Kerline told Blake that Jasmin could live with them but Blake had to live with his brother. Kerline didn't care if this news upset Blake, and neither did his stepfather.
Jasmin wished Blake's parents had told them this before they started to move in, but Kerline said she and her husband would probably be out of the apartment in a few months -- and by that point, Blake and Jasmin should be married and could live there together.
Blake was apparently more than welcome to come by as long as Kerline and her husband were home. Jasmin wished Blake had stood up for her more, but at the same time, she respected his parents' wishes.
Jasmin later accused Blake of not having good communication with his parents. She wasn't happy Blake hadn't prepared better for her arrival, but Blake said Jasmin was the one who had insisted on coming earlier than originally planned.
The couple intended to "roll with the punches" although their situation wasn't ideal. Blake just didn't want Jasmin to leave him, but Jasmin told the cameras she would not spend 90 days sleeping alone -- regardless of what Blake's parents had said or demanded.
A few days after Jasmin arrived in America, he was hoping Jasmin would open up to his friends more, but Jasmin was just happy she had her sister in Los Angeles and didn't really care to make new friends in America.
Over lunch, Jasmin told Blake's friends she wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and wasn't interested in building a career for herself in the United States.
Jasmin hoped to welcome kids five years into the future, but Blake's friends didn't understand what Jasmin was going to do in the meantime.
Blake's friend Rita thought Blake and Jasmin were total opposites, but Blake insisted that's why their relationship was working. Rita just hoped Blake wouldn't change as a person, especially since Jasmin didn't enjoy drinking alcohol and partying.
Jasmin ended up spending a lot of time with Blake's mother at home. She wanted to move out as soon as possible, so she never allowed herself to get really settled.
Jasmin told Kerline that she wanted to become a social-media influencer but 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.
So did Blake and Jasmin get married? Is the 90 Day Fiance couple still together?
Jasmin and Blake appear to still be an item, as things were definitely fine between them in late December 2019.
On December 26, Blake posted a video to his Instagram Stories in which he was playfully targeting Jasmin with a nerf gun, which was probably one of his Christmas gifts.
Around the same time, Jasmin shared a funny photo of the couple posing in their Christmas sweaters.
And two weeks earlier, Blake conducted a Q&A session with his followers on Instagram Stories.
Blake revealed he'd like to have 2-3 children with Jasmin in one of his responses, showing they're still together.
And on the same day, Blake also posted a photo of the 90 Day Fiance cast, gushing about his time with Jasmin in New York City when they all gathered to film the Season 7 Tell-All special.
"This 5 day getaway to New York was amazing. I just want to say Thank you to all the fans that we've met so far and taken pictures with. Thank you @tlc for allowing this moment and opportunity to happen. Seeing @jasminaniel experience New York for the first time ever was wonderful and amazing, moments like these are moments we will always remember," Blake captioned the image.
"She also got to meet my brother, Brandon @bastyle_nycla and see us & our goofy ways. Also, thank you to all the [90 Day Fiance Season 7 couples] that we met... I don't care what people THINK... and after hearing that ALL OF OUR EXPERIENCES with this show are the same, there's nothing that can break the bond that was gained after shooting for 20+ hours in a day, having some drinks and good conversations."
On December 3, Jasmin took to Instagram and posted a beautiful photo of the couple with a mountain landscape in the background.
"A love like no other," Jasmin captioned the image, along with a red-heart emoji.
Jasmin also hinted she's currently living in the United States when she posted two separate photos of herself in Los Angeles, CA, on November 4 and November 14.
Unless Jasmin only arrived in the United States within the last several months -- which seems unlikely given 90 Day Fiance's typical filming schedule -- her presence in America indicates she and Blake must have gotten married during the 90-day period of her K-1 visa, or else she would have had to return to Finland.
In late October, Jasmin also posted a boomerang of herself kissing Blake as the sun was setting.
When Jasmin and Blake spoke to ET at a 90 Day Fiance press event in Hollywood around that same time, they appeared to be very much together!
In fact, the pair reportedly held hands during their interview, and Jasmin was wearing an engagement ring.
However, the 90 Day Fiance couple repeatedly avoided direct questions about their relationship status.
"You'll have to find out!" Blake teased.
When ET pointed out Blake only seemed to have great things to say about Jasmin, he replied, "It's kind of hard not to speak highly of her. Whatever the outcome is of her and I, you know, it's not like I'm going to be like, 'Oh, I'm never talking to her again!'"
"We both tried. It's not like I tried it and failed or something," he added.
Blake acknowledged during the interview it takes "two people" to make a relationship work.
"We had a little bit of a relationship before the proposal and everything like that. It's not like I've known her for a few hours or a couple days. I've known her for a while," Blake said.
Blake reiterated how fans will have to watch and see what happens.
"They show us -- they tap into a little bit of my world and see what I do with music, and they tap into her world with her gymnastics and everything," Blake explained.
Despite moving to a different country, Jasmin suggested her transition wasn't actually a huge adjustment.
"I visited here [the U.S.] before, so I kind of knew where I was moving to," Jasmin noted.
"I've known him for two years, so I feel safe around him. So it was a good thing to move here. It's been great."
Blake also insisted any drama 90 Day Fiance viewers are going to see happened to be "normal, common things" for couples and their frustrations often had to do with the filming process -- not each other.
When ET asked the pair whether they had any regrets about doing the show, Jasmin noted, "I don't have any regrets."
"We try to live life with no regrets," Blake added. "That's my motto right there."
