The couple starred on Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, followed by Season 1 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, which wrapped in late October 2019.

Paul and Karine fell hard and fast for each other in love in Brazil and tied the knot in 2017, and their wedding aired the following year on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

Paul and Karine proudly announced in October 2018 that Karine was pregnant after she had suffered devastating miscarriages. Later that month, Paul revealed they had a baby boy on the way.

But shortly before baby Pierre was born on March 22, Karine threatened to file for divorce from Paul because of his ongoing trust issues and their constant fighting.

Karine was tired of dealing with Paul's temper and the pair argued so much that sometimes she just wanted out. The pair also had limited resources and a pretty dire financial situation, which added stress and created tension.

Karine wanted to feel loved, supported and taken care of, but Paul repeatedly insisted he was doing everything he could to provide for his family and be a good father and husband. Paul felt his efforts were never enough.

"I really want a divorce. I am tired of what Paul does to me," Karine said in a confessional during an episode of the series.

"He lives in the past and too many fights make a relationship fall apart. There's no more hope. I'm thinking of my son now."

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way's first season even featured Karine and her mother leaving Paul behind in Tonantins and traveling to Manaus via boat to file for divorce shortly before Pierre was born.

However, Karine decided to give Paul another chance since she still loved him and he stepped up in the delivery room and was there for her when she gave birth to Pierre.

Paul and Karine had been married for two years by the time Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way filmed. The couple had been in Brazil for over a year but Paul said they were "barely getting by."

Paul and Karine therefore planned to move to the United States so Paul could get a job and make more money.

"It took a lot, but I was able to sponsor Karine on a CR-1 visa, which is a spousal visa and allows Karine to apply and get a two-year Green Card before she even enters America," Paul told the cameras.

"She already has her Green Card approved; she is a complete permanent resident."

A lot of people thought Karine was using Paul when they got together, but Paul said Karine was actually dead-set on living in Brazil and wanted to visit America on more of a trial basis. Karine was upset about having to leave her family in Brazil for so long.

Karine told Paul it wouldn't be a problem if he lived and worked in America while she and Pierre stayed in Brazil, but Paul hoped it wouldn't have to come down to that.

Paul's mother, however, refused to let her son and daughter-in-law stay with her in order to light a fire under Paul's feet and step up as a man.

Karine revealed to her mother Gracilene that she and Paul bought one-way tickets to the United States and their plan was to live there long-term, which made Gracilene cry because her daughter had never left Brazil before.

Gracilene was well aware Karine and Paul fought all the time, and so she was worried about Paul treating her daughter right. Karine had faith, however, in Paul.

Karine and Paul were then shown traveling to America, and Karine immediately noticed more trees and houses outside with no trash in the streets.

Paul said he was ready to be an adult and figure everything out on his own because his mother wasn't going to let her son and Karine stay with her and depend on her.

On their way home, Pierre started crying in the backseat and Karine took him out of his carseat to comfort him. Paul shouted that Karine was "breaking the law," but his mother yelled about how the situation wasn't his business and that's exactly why they couldn't live together.

Paul got out in the middle of the road and started wandering around, and his mother called him "an idiot." Karine couldn't believe Paul was stressing out already, and his mother accused him of being "dramatic."

Paul and Karine planned to stay at a hotel until he could find a job and a place for his family to live.

Karine told Paul the views were "very pretty" and she'd like to go to a baseball game, but she thought she was going to have more support from Paul's family. Karine thought her family treated them better than how Paul's family was treating them, but Paul said he needed to stand on his own two feet.

"If Paul doesn't keep his promises, I don't know for how long I'll continue here in America," Karine said in a confessional.

During their first full day in America, Paul went over to his mother's house to pick up his car, but his mother had taken her house key off of Paul's car keys, which really upset him. Paul said there were things he needed from inside the house and he couldn't believe his mother would shut him out like that.

Karine noticed Paul's car was "a mess," which she said didn't surprise her. There were food, trash, clothing and work supplies in the car, and Karine refused to get inside because she thought it wasn't safe enough for her and the baby.

"I am worried that his mom isn't willing to help us. I thought that being in America, I would have more support from Paul's family," Karine noted. "Right now, I'm upset with Paul because he's disappointing me."

Paul thought Karine's expectations were really high and said their life wasn't going to be perfect right away.

Karine was already missing her family and how much they helped her with Pierre, and she admitted, "I don't know why I left Brazil to come to America."

In a trailer released in late May for the new 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? season, Paul and Karine were shown searching for a place to live, and Karine looked disgusted and unhappy with the options Paul had presented her in a trailer park.

After looking at one messy trailer in particular, Karine complained to the cameras, "This place is gross."

Karine rolled her eyes and Paul said of his wife, "She's just not being receptive to anything I'm showing her so far."

Paul expressed concern Karine wasn't going to like their life in America.


So are Paul and Karine still together? Did the 90 Day Fiance couple stay together in America or did Karine give up on Paul?

Karine obtained her CR-1 spousal visa a few months after giving birth to Pierre. She planned to move to Louisville, KY, with Paul.

Karine and Paul documented their time together in America over the course of several months on social media, and they appeared to be a happy family last summer.

But speculation the 90 Day Fiance couple's volatile relationship was once again on the rocks first began in early September when Paul had made an Instagram Stories posting claiming Karine was threatening him with divorce -- again.

"Doing a poll strictly out of curiosity. For someone I know very well...... Should a wife divorce her husband over his mother buying gifts daily spoiling their son?" he wrote in the Instagram Story.

"Should a grandmother be banned from seeing her grandchildren over spoiling them. And a husband be divorced for defending his mother's actions?"

Although Paul seemingly tried to play it off like the scenario was happening to some other couple, most of his Instagram followers knew better as the couple's social-media postings openly showed they were living near Paul's mother in the Louisville at the time with Pierre.

As a result, it appeared Karine was angry with Paul's mother for "spoiling" her son as well as Paul for taking his mom's side.

Things seemed to go back to normal until late September, when Paul suggested, once again, the couple's marriage was ending and Karine had initiated a divorce.

According to the comments, Karine told Paul that she didn't want him in her life anymore and had retained a divorce lawyer.

Paul revealed the news in a pair of since-deleted Facebook postings from September 27, according to screenshots captured by his followers.

"Karine asked me to remove our photos. And let everyone know that she doesn't want me in her life," he wrote in his first Facebook posting.

Paul then also wrote a subsequent posting in a mix of Portuguese and English. When translated, the text states, "Karine's divorce lawyer called me. Guess I need a lawyer."

Shortly afterward, Paul deleted both postings and removed most photos of Karine from his page.

In October 2019, the cloud seemed to pass because Paul asked fans on Instagram for great haunted-house recommendations in the spirit of Halloween.

Not only did Paul have a date planned for his wife, but he also posted a photo of them smiling at the time.

Paul and Karine also celebrated their second wedding anniversary in early November 2019.

But later that month, the pair openly discussed filing for divorce again.

Paul claimed Karine had "started divorce proceedings in Manaus," and Karine told Us Weekly on November 12 that she was "looking for a lawyer."

"Over the course of our Christmas dinner Paul and Karine broke up, got back together, broke up, got back together, broke up and this just in -- are back together. Stay tuned for more on this developing story," 90 Day Fiance Instagrammer John Yates posted on December 25.

In December 2019, Paul alleged Karine had taken off with their baby and was with a new man named Blake. He also said Karine was demanding a divorce again at the time.


So did Paul and Karine turn their relationship around or get divorced?

Although Paul and Karine have broken up and gotten back together numerous times throughout the course of their relationship, it appears they are still married and living together in Kentucky.

In late June, Karine posted a photo of Paul playing with Pierre and captioned it, "Happy Father's Day." She also added a blue heart to her post.

And Paul just posted an Instagram video on May 19 of a bike he had purchased and was putting together for Karine.

While there aren't many photos of Paul on Karine's Instagram in recent months, it's likely he's been the one taking most of her photos.

Paul also took to Instagram in early May to announce Karine is pregnant with the couple's second child!

It appeared Karine was already several months along into her pregnancy at the time.

It wouldn't be surprising, however, if Karine wanted to keep her pregnancy under wraps for the first few months of her pregnancy considering she has a history of miscarriage and could be superstitious.

The baby's gender and due date have yet to be announced.
