[90 Day Fiance Spoilers Warning: This article contains spoilers revealing if 90 Day Fiance couple Michael and Juliana are still together.]

Michael, a 41-year-old independent and self-employed wine entrepreneur from Greenwich, CT, and Juliana, a 23-year-old from Goiania, Brazil, are starring on 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which is nearing its end on TLC.

Michael imports and distributes wine and works at wine auctions. He's apparently a wealthy man who's part of a jet-setting social group that parties all over the world.

During a big yacht party in Croatia, Michael met Juliana, an international model, and there was an instant attraction.

"I remember when I first saw her," Michael told the camera during the debut episode of 90 Day Fiance's seventh season. "She's beautiful, amazing body -- I don't necessarily believe in love at first sight, but it's like we were kindred spirits."

Once Michael and Juliana got to know each other, Michael said he realized she was funny, thoughtful and smart. He was amazed she was only 20 years old.

"There are certainly a lot of people that may pass judgment [and] may think I'm just an old sleazy, rich guy going after a young hot woman," Michael said. "It doesn't bother me at all. I don't really care."

Juliana, a former seamstress who grew up very poor, was discovered by a modeling agency, and Michael pledged to support her financially in any way that he can.

Michael therefore gave Juliana access to his credit cards. Michael admitted he had spent no small amount of money on her, but he simply wanted to give Juliana the world. (When a producer later asked if the amount was around $150,000, Michael refused to comment. Juliana even purchased a car on Michael's credit card.)

Michael was hoping Juliana could visit him in the United States shortly after they met, but that plan apparently fell through because her intentions were questioned and they were both denied Tourist Visas.

Michael realized obtaining a K-1 visa would be the only way she could come to America -- so he proposed marriage and planned to marry her within 90 days of her visit.

It took a long time for the K-1 visa to be approved, and both individuals almost lost hope because Michael could never move and leave his children behind whom he had welcomed with his ex-wife Sarah Jessen.

When Juliana had her interview in Rio de Janeiro for the K-1 visa, both Michael and Juliana were nervous because Juliana was apparently in a "high-risk" category considering she's young and from a poor part of Brazil.

Juliana also had a lot of stamps in her passport, and so there would be concern her desire to come to America would be so she can be involved in "illicit activities."

Cameras were not permitted inside the consulate, but after the interview, Juliana said it was "bad" and they had insulted her.

"They just asked stupid questions. They asked me if I had been working as a prostitute the last 10 years," Juliana revealed in a confessional. 

Michael didn't think it was right for Juliana to be asked that question, and he confirmed, "No, she's not a prostitute!" Michael said it's normal for young models to travel the world and party with wealthy people.

"I'm a model and I'm professional, so of course I've been to many countries," Juliana told the cameras.

Michael called it "ridiculous" and planned to consult with his lawyer over that "upsetting" interview.

"What does that make me? A pimp?... I don't need to [pay for sex]," Michael vented to Juliana, before she called the process "a nightmare."

But after providing a police-clearance document to show Juliana had no criminal history, Juliana's K-1 visa was approved.

Michael wanted Juliana's arrival in the United States to be as special as possible, so he bought a bouquet of flowers, champagne, and a $4,000 necklace, and headed to the airport in a big white Hummer limousine.

Juliana said she felt like the luckiest girl in the world, and her first meeting with Michael's children went beautifully. She also got along with Sarah, who turned out to be very gracious and kind to Juliana.

Sarah said while most women would probably be intimidated by such a tall, sexy, gorgeous, exotic, smart and well-traveled girl, she wasn't -- because she didn't have the need, energy or time to be jealous.

But Sarah asked Juliana to "not parent at all." Sarah wanted Juliana to embrace her new role in the family as just a stepmom and become her friend, but Juliana didn't feel like she was part of the family yet.

Sarah later clarified on social media she just didn't want to overload Juliana with too much responsibility given she was still adjusting to a new life in a new country with a new soon-to-be husband.

Michael and Sarah were then shown going furniture shopping and moving into a new house, which Juliana found wonderful and overwhelming.

They were also planning their wedding with good food, good wine, some dancing and about a 40-person guest count. Michael and Juliana had to tell the wedding planner they had both been married once before.

Michael was quoted $50,000-$100,000 for a wedding at their new home by the wedding planner. Juliana couldn't believe how expensive the wedding was going to be.

Juliana expected only three people would be coming to their wedding from her side, but she was still happy. Juliana apparently didn't want her parents to see how wealthy she had become in America because they would expect a lot of financial help from Michael.

Juliana didn't want to feel guilty for having a fancy, opulent wedding when her parents might look at the flowers and think, "Those would be our groceries for a week." The couple struggled with how to enjoy their new life together when Juliana's family was so poor back home.

Later on, Sarah stopped by and told the couple she'd be willing to become ordained and officiate their wedding.

But things between family members grew tense when Sarah asked Michael if he and Juliana had a prenuptial agreement in place to ensure their children would be well taken care of financially in case something were to go wrong in their marriage.

Sarah said she didn't mean to stir the pot, but Juliana was left feeling very confused.

Juliana later asked Michael to explain a prenuptial agreement to her, and he said it's an agreement made in case of divorce to ensure his children, Max and Cece, are protected, but she still didn't understand what it meant.

The conversation upset Juliana because she never wanted to get a divorce and said she'd do anything to make the marriage work, but Michael insisted the prenup would protect her interests as well. Michael pointed out prenups tend to protect the women in marriage "heavily."

Juliana was upset she had to hear about the prenup from Sarah and not Michael, and Michael agreed it was "uncouth" of Sarah and out of character for her to bring that up.

Juliana agreed to go forward with a prenup, but she appeared frustrated because she had to give up her jobs, her little dogs and her family in Brazil to come to the United States.

Michael and Juliana were then shown meeting with a mediator a few weeks before their wedding. Michael revealed he has two children and "business interests" and so he wanted to be "prepared for worst-case scenario."

The mediator, Carolyn Swiggart, said a prenup balances out power in a relationship and decision-making. Michael said assets would remain in his name and they'd have separate property.

Juliana had stopped working a few months prior, so she didn't have much money to bring into the marriage. Juliana said if Michael didn't want to share his income and assets then neither did she if she ended up making it big as a model.

Carolyn told Michael to make sure Juliana would be well taken care of in the case of divorce, and Juliana felt the mediator was on her side, which Michael probably didn't expect.

Juliana told Michael that if he left her once, he'd probably be willing to do it again -- referring to a breakup they previously had in their relationship after a big fight.

Juliana and Michael apparently broke up for three months last year, when Michael allegedly called her and said he didn't want to date her anymore.

Juliana said Michael had suddenly disappeared and she couldn't afford to pay her rent. Juliana never wanted to be in that situation again, and she was angry at herself for depending on Michael so much in the United States.

Juliana said she felt like a "loser" and figured Michael would have all the money and power in their relationship.

"I'm thinking it's time for me to be independent," Juliana told Michael. "If you were in my shoes, you [would be] thinking the same thing. So don't judge."

Michael said he never would have brought Juliana to the meeting had he known it was going to be so upsetting for her.

"I think he always had control over everything and he wants control over me, but that's not going to happen because men [don't] control me," Juliana told the cameras.

Since Juliana was so upset over the prenup, Michael decided against signing one.

"We're not doing it. No prenup. It doesn't make sense. It's stupid. No matter what happens, you're going to be okay and the kids are going to be fine. That's not why we're getting married -- to have a business transaction," Michael finally shared with his fiancee.

Michael hoped for the best and was confident his future marriage would work out.

Juliana gave Michael a few kisses and appeared both happy and relieved at Michael's decision. Juliana, however, still didn't trust Michael, telling the cameras, "I don't trust anyone."

Juliana at least found a little independence when Michael bought her a bicycle for her birthday so she could get around on her own.

Juliana had to wait three or four months to work and model again.

She then opened up to Sarah about how she had joined a church after her modeling career failed when she was a young teen.

"I think the church was a cult... and for any reason, you could go to hell," Juliana said.

The church's pastor apparently introduced Juliana, who was 17 years old at the time, to a 34-year-old man whom she later married. Juliana said they married after dating for only four months, and in the same day they wed, "he changed."

Juliana's ex-husband demanded Juliana that she stay home, not work and clean their house -- and she said the pastor did not believe her when she complained about his behavior.

"[We] didn't sign divorce or anything. [I] left," Juliana shared.

After Juliana escaped the bad relationship, she moved to Sao Paulo to start modeling again as a stronger and more confident woman. Juliana wasn't going to let anyone bully her again, and then after four months, she filed for divorce and forced her ex to sign the papers.

Sarah applauded Juliana on having overcome so much in her life and she cried after listening to her story. Sarah realized there was "indescribable" depth to Juliana.

Sarah was beginning to regret asking Juliana not to parent her two kids, Max and Cece, since she has great values. Sarah complimented Juliana on being an intelligent hard worker, who values family.

Sarah said she and Juliana "filled in the gaps" together in terms of what would make an excellent mother, and she told Juliana that she was glad she chose Michael as a partner.

Later on, Sarah drove Juliana to pick up her wedding dress after alterations, and the girls were quickly becoming best friend.

Sarah just advised Juliana to keep ahold of her own money and not become a house servant, cooking and cleaning everything for Michael.

Juliana cried in her dress because she couldn't wait to marry her love. But a part of Juliana feared she'd get hurt again.

"Don't be nervous. You're part of a big family now," Sarah assured the future bride.

It then became time for Juliana and Michael's wedding.

Juliana was sad she never heard from her family members that day and cried, but she ultimately decided not to let anyone ruin her wedding since she was going to marry the man she loved.

She therefore wiped her tears and walked down the aisle in her beautiful long-sleeve, lace ballgown with a tiara and veil on her head.

Michael felt he and Juliana had conquered so much together, and he was emotional because they had remained in love through it all.

"You look amazing. Oh my gosh, you're a princess," Michael told his bride at the altar.

The ceremony was officiated by Sarah, which was a little "weird" for Juliana, but the girls had become great friends.

Sarah gushed about how children loved Juliana and were happier than ever with Michael's bride in their lives. Both Max and Cece also gave adorable speeches at the wedding, saying Juliana is a great person.

Michael was so proud of his children and felt like they were an extended family "all in this together."

"Of course I'm supposed to be the bitter, resentful, 42-year-old stay-at-home mom whose husband got a newer, better model, you know? But that's not really what it is, and I'm saying this with all honesty and sincerity," Sarah told the cameras.

"My kids have never felt more secure in their lives than how things are right now."

The wedding reception included cake and dancing, and Michael noted in a confessional, "It's more perfect than I could ever picture perfect being."

Juliana was also on Cloud 9, telling the cameras Michael was "even better" than the man of her dreams and he was stuck with her forever. Juliana said even if Michael wanted a divorce down the road, she wouldn't allow it.

So are Michael and Juliana still together? Has the 90 Day Fiance couple's wedding bliss lasted?

In early February, Juliana posted a photo with Michael and fellow 90 Day Fiance couple and Connecticut residents Tania Maduro and Syngin Colchester. She captioned it, "Love these people."

Around the same time, Michael shared photos from the wedding and wrote, "No longer the worst kept secret on #90dayfiance Season 7. The most beautiful and happiest day of our lives.... Watching last night's episode was like reliving the moment.... We woke up this morning feeling like newly weds."

"Thank you [to] everyone [who] made it so special. #married #wedding #love #family #friends #greenwich #michaelandjuliana #notasecretanymore #worstkeptsecret #october12 #2019 #2020."

Juliana and Michael got married on October 12, 2019, and photos from the wedding leaked online late last year.

In addition, it is evident, based on this family's social media accounts, that Michael and Juliana are still a couple and remain happily married.

In mid-January 2020, Michael posted several photos of Juliana in a bathing suit hugging and kissing her little black dog in their house.

"This is love," Michael captioned the image.

"EDIT: FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT FOR SOME REASON HAVE HAD A HARD TIME UNDERSTANDING AND/OR QUESTION WHY JULIANA IS WEARING A BATHING SUIT SHE WAS GIVING @howardthedog87 A HAIRCUT AND A BATH. @julianacustodiooo @howardthedog87 #love #puppies #puppiesofinstagram #puppy #puppylove #heartmelting #90dayfiance #2020 #michaelandjuliana #love."

And Juliana confirmed around the same time she's currently living in Connecticut.

"First winter of me in Connecticut and hard get use to the cold," Juliana captioned a photo of herself in a bikini. "Thinking of summer being here. #summer #bikinilife #babyitscoldoutside #90dayfiance #michaelandjuliana #tlc."

Juliana has also remained very close with Sarah, and it appears she gets along beautifully with Max and Cece.

Juliana revealed she was hanging out with Sarah in her Instagram Stories on January 14, and she captioned one photo of them both growling, "Men don't control us."

On January 13, it appears Juliana did a "closet challenge" with Sarah's new husband Sean Naso and Michael's daughter Cece in which Sean had to pick out feminine clothes blindfolded from a closet and then try them on.

Michael also posted photos of Juliana meeting a guitar craftsman he finds remarkable on January 9, and four days earlier, he shared a photo of his love and gushed about her on Instagram.

"I think this is now my all-time favorite photo of my wonderful and beautiful {word redacted}, @julianacustodiooo.... and she took it herself," Michael captioned the image of Juliana looking naturally beautiful and posed.

On January 4, Juliana and Michael both shared photos from when they celebrated a friend's 50th birthday at what appeared to be a fancy black-tie affair.

Michael also took to Instagram on December 25, 2019 with photos of Juliana, his children and their dog.

"Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones from the Jessen/Naso family @maxwell.jessen @julianacustodiooo @keathley76 @the_real_naso @howardthedog87 @dogpercythe #gusgusthedog," Michael captioned the slideshow.

"We wish you a wonderful and safe holiday season and hope that you enjoy much love, happiness, and health in 2020."

After the episode aired earlier this season in which Michael and Juliana met with a mediator to discuss a prenuptial agreement, Michael slammed TLC and the show's production company on Instagram for alleged "bullsh-t" editing that painted himself in a bad light.

"It's something where I feel like I need to call a little bit of bullsh-t because it's not really who we are. It's not really reflective of our reality," Michael said in a series of videos posted to his Instagram Stories in mid-December, according to In Touch Weekly.

"I think we're all a little upset that it's kind of cut out the kindness that we truly share together and it was something that was a part of the narrative of our 90 Day Fiance experience that was departing from who we really are... We're all upset about the harshness for which we were portrayed. It hurts our feelings... We're not paid actors. This is still our real lives."

Michael also shot down criticism he's selfish in his relationship with Juliana.

In the process of defending himself in the video clips, Michael revealed he and Juliana had decided to adopt her niece and nephew from Brazil and bring them over to the United States!

"Juliana and I, today, just initiated the process of adopting her niece and nephew from Brazil," Michael reportedly shared on December 15.

"They're 8 and 6 years old. And they're in [a] dire situation. The only way to give them a chance at a good life is to bring them to America. We've reached out to my lawyer, we're bringing them over here."

For Juliana's part, she posted a video on Instagram Stories of herself walking around New York City with Michael at the time. The couple was shown hugging and then the video ended with the pair lying in bed together with Michael shirtless.

Juliana also gushed about Michael and defended him following the episode of their prenup dispute.

"I love this guy. I just wants to share how much I love this man, and so many sacrifices he made just to be with me, isn't fair he being attacked just for what people seem on tv, the fact that I haven't been smart with my own stuff have nothing to do with him," Juliana wrote on Instagram.

"He doesn't deserve all this hate, he is a prince, I'm so happy that on the real life he is the most amazing human being I have ever met and has a beautiful soul, love you @michael_jessen_77 #90dayfiance."

Michael later re-posted the video and wrote, "Here's the real love that isn't being shown on TV."

As for Sarah, she re-married and tied the knot with Sean in early December, and based on a photo Max posted on Instagram, Michael and Juliana attended the small and intimate wedding reception at a waterfront restaurant in Greenwich, CT, together.

And when Sarah posted an Instagram photo of Sean, Max, Cece and herself on her wedding day, she tagged Michael and Juliana in her post.

On November 27, Juliana confirmed she no intention of returning to Brazil. While standing next to an American flag, she wrote, "At home in the USA."

More pictures of Juliana, Michael and their blended family date back to November 2019.
