The couple met online and fell in love in Brazil despite some serious communication issues.

Paul and Karine tied the knot in 2017, but their wedding didn't air on television until the following year.

Although Paul and Karine loved each other, they encountered some serious issues in their long-distance relationship.

For example, Karine, suffered through two devastating miscarriages -- one of which was documented on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

Karine also threatened to divorce Paul, who didn't trust his wife and even questioned multiple times if he's the biological father of her baby.

But the pair were pleased to announce in October 2018 they had another baby on the way. That same month, Paul revealed Karine was pregnant with a boy.

During the premiere of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Paul, 35 at the time, explained he had been working odd jobs on a farm to save up money for his wife and unborn child.

Paul wanted to be by Karine's side throughout her pregnancy more than anything, especially considering the pair feared another miscarriage or pregnancy complications in general.

Paul was hoping Karine could give birth in the United States, but since he didn't make $26,000 in annual income and couldn't convince his mother -- or seemingly anyone else -- to sponsor Karine, Paul realized he must move to Brazil in order for his marriage to survive.

Paul was frustrated he couldn't support his wife and baby from America, and so he prepared himself for a permanent stay in Brazil.

Paul insisted he was making "a huge sacrifice" for Karine by leaving his friends and family behind. He wasn't looking forward to adjusting to Brazilian culture and learning a new language.

"No matter where I go, I'm torn between two worlds," Paul said in an episode towards the beginning of the season, explaining how he was going to miss his mother.

"Moving to Brazil and never coming back is nerve-wracking. I love my parents and my family, but I want to be with Karine and I want to be there to help raise my baby when it's born."

Karine, 23, was seven months pregnant at the time Paul arrived in Brazil. She had spent three months alone prior to his arrival and had been taking English classes in order to improve their communication.

Karine, however, didn't feel Paul was making much of an effort to work and earn money. She feared Paul wouldn't be able to provide for his family, and Karine was well aware babies are expensive.

Karine's brother Bonnie also shared with the cameras that Karine spent a lot of time crying in her bedroom prior to Paul's arrival.

Bonnie didn't really like Paul and considered him to be "an unbalanced person." Bonnie wanted Paul to learn Portuguese and said Karine's husband had the tendency to turn into "a demon" at times.

Karine insisted she truly loved Paul but needed him to "stop the drama," become a good father, and step up to the plate financially.

But Paul said he was doing everything he could for his wife and was tired of it not being enough.

Unfortunately for the couple, Paul later discovered his application for permanent residency in Brazil had been denied due to his criminal record. In a letter Paul received, he was accused of committing a crime of terrorism.

Paul insisted he was not guilty of any such crime, and he couldn't believe it.

"Karine is going to be heartbroken. She's going to be just shocked. I only have 10 days to deal with this and then I need to leave the country," Paul said in a confessional.

"I don't want to cause unnecessary drama and then cause her stress and cause problems with the baby. I don't know what to do at this point. I really don't."

Paul then took off running and swearing from the show's film crew.

Paul wondered if the police had him confused with someone else. He was outraged to discover he had been accused of an act of terrorism as well as war crimes -- both of which Paul completely denied.

Paul therefore met with an attorney to get to the bottom of things and have some Portuguese in the letter translated for him, and Paul quickly learned his residency had been denied because he had been charged with "terroristic threatening of the third degree."

"Ohh, that's a misdemeanor charge. I was accused of threatening somebody that I was going to slash their tires," Paul explained.

Paul claimed to the cameras that 13 years ago, he arrived home from work and discovered his girlfriend was inside with another guy. Paul therefore threatened to slash the man's tires and "made some angry comments."

The attorney explained a charge such as terroristic threatening does not exist in Brazil, but once translated into Portuguese, it sounds like a charge related to terrorism.

The attorney therefore said he and Paul must explain to agents of the federal police that what Paul had been charged with back in the United States was not an act of terrorism but rather a normal threatening charge.

Paul asked what his options were, and the attorney said it was going to take a lot of work to appeal and ultimately change the decision.

Paul was shocked because he thought there was a chance he may be denied over his arson charge -- but not a misdemeanor terroristic threatening charge.

Paul vented about how his wife in Brazil was pregnant but he wasn't allowed to stay there, nor was she allowed to move to the United States.

The attorney predicted it could take a week, a month, or maybe even up to a year to reach a solution. Paul figured it was going to be "a serious waiting game" and he could only hope for the best.

When Paul broke the news to Karine he might have to return to the United States, she was devastated and worried because she didn't want to be pregnant and alone.

Karine said she could go back to her parents' place in Tonantins, Amazonas, if Paul had to leave so she'd have the help of her family with the baby.

Two months before Karine's due date, the pair went to a doctor appointment in Brazil to check on the baby and see if everything was okay.

Karine learned she had a bladder infection that was causing her pain but medicine would make her feel better.

The baby, however, had a "perfect, strong heart," according to the doctor. And the couple received confirmation they were expecting a baby boy.

Karine's travel time to Tonantins would be four or five days by boat, so Paul wondered whether that would be safe. The doctor said Karine would be okay as long as she rested and put her feet up often.

Regardless, Paul found the idea nerve-wracking. He wanted his wife and baby to be okay.

Paul then helped Karine pack for her trip to a tiny village in Amazonas, but he decided to keep their apartment in case things didn't go well.

Paul and Karine were then shown traveling on the boat and Karine had a private room so she would be more comfortable. (Most people on the boat slept in hammocks).

After Paul complained about the mosquitos on the boat and the brown water, Karine questioned whether he'd be able to adapt to life in Tonantins. Karine hoped Paul was going to man up and be brave.

So are Paul and Karine still together and married? Did they manage to stay together even though the odds were stacked against them?

Despite the issues that have plagued their relationship, Karine and Paul are definitely still an item and married.

Paul shared a family photo of Karine, the baby and himself at a cookout on July 4.

The couple has been posting photos of each other on Instagram Stories in the last few months.

Not only are they making Cameo videos together for money, but Karine also shared a few funny images of Paul on the couch with their son.

Paul and Karine's adorable infant son, Pierre Martins Staehle, was born in Brazil in March.

And the latest news is that Paul and Karine are now living as a couple in the United States! That's right, Karine is in America.

Eyewitnesses took photos of Paul and Karine at the airport together in Louisville, Kentucky in mid-June.

And then Karine confirmed her location by posting photos on her Instagram Stories of Paul and herself visiting local attractions in Louisville.

Paul, Karine, their baby, and Paul's mother all posed for a picture in front of the entrance of the Louisville Zoo.

Karine shared a picture of the exterior of Louisville's Hard Rock Cafe, suggesting the couple also visited the Fourth Street Live entertainment and shopping complex downtown. 

Back in February, Paul revealed in his Instagram Stories that Karine had received a CR-1 spousal visa.

So after welcoming their first child together on March 22, it appears Karine and her son officially moved to the United States.

Paul gushed to Us Weekly shortly after his baby was born that he's "very happy" and "very excited" to be a father.

"I'm also very nervous and want to do everything the best that I can and do everything right," Paul told Us.

"Everyone keeps asking how it feels to be a dad. Anyone can make a baby, but going through the day-to-day process of being a father is going to be a new experience. I'm very happy, very honored and very privileged and I want to make sure I do my absolute best for Pierre."

Paul and Karine are definitely not hiding their relationship status considering Paul's Instagram bio reads, "Married to @staehlekarine," along with an emoji of a couple and their child.

Karine's Instagram profile also has Paul in her main photo and reads, "Casada com [Paul]" in her bio at the top, which means she's "married with" Paul.

A picture on Paul's Instagram from late May shows Karine and himself dressed up for what appears to be a date night at Moai Restobar, a restaurant in Brazil.

Paul's mother also visited the couple in Brazil earlier that month. Paul posted a video on Instagram of his mother flying home on American Airlines in May.
