Anna, a 38-year-old mother of three from Bellevue, NE, and Mursel, a 38-year-old from Antalya, Turkey, are one of the couples starring on 90 Day Fiance's seventh season as it nears its end on TLC.
Mursel explained he loved Anna so much and felt guilty about the secret, but he knew his family would disapprove of him marrying a wife with kids -- and he didn't want to disobey his parents.
Best case scenario, Mursel hoped to tell his parents about Anna's kids in about 10 years.
Mursel said his parents would forgive his sins during their last moments on earth and that is the time to be totally honest and forthcoming about things.
Once Mursel had been in America for about a month, he and Anna began planning their wedding. Anna put together little honey favors, while Mursel was constructing a "honeycomb altar" made of wood.
But as time progressed, the pair struggled with communication issues, and Anna worried Mursel was using their language barrier as an excuse to not talk about their problems and reach solutions.
Anna didn't feel heard or understood by Mursel, and she was tired of receiving "yes" or "no" answers from him.
Anna, however, continued with the wedding planning, which included picking out a wedding dress.
"He's The One. It just seems like nothing is going right... [but] we'll get it all figured out," Anna cried when trying on the perfect dress.
While trying on tuxedos and suits with Mursel later on, Joey made it known he didn't want his mother to get married.
"Your situation does not make me happy," Mursel told Joey while they were being fitted for their wedding tuxedos. "You never give me good energy. You don't try to be nice. If you don't want me, I can go."
"It's that easy?!" Joey asked his mom. "Okay, situation solved!"
Mursel started questioning why he should stay in the United States if Anna's kids didn't want him around, but Anna was certain they could get through this.
"The boys mean everything to me. My life revolves around them, but I don't think they appreciate everything I've given and sacrificed for them. And at some point, I want to be happy too," Anna said in a confessional.
However, Mursel keeping Anna's kids a secret from his loved ones continued eating away at her, so she decided to give Mursel an ultimatum.
Anna told Mursel to tell his parents about her kids or else she wouldn't marry him.
"If I had known Anna was going to make me tell my family about her kids, I would not have come [to the United States]," Mursel confessed to the cameras.
When Mursel video chatted with his parents and made his confession, Mursel's parents seemed outraged.
"She took you for a fool!" Mursel's father said, before his mother scolded him as well and demanded he return to Turkey and find a nice girl in his home country.
Mursel said his parents perceived Anna as an "incredibly bad" woman since she has children from a previous relationship, and Anna was devastated to hear her parents would not accept her.
Mursel then decided to return to Turkey in order to please his parents, and Charlene accused Mursel of breaking her daughter's heart. Charlene had predicted her daughter's relationship would "end up in tragedy," and she just wanted Mursel to get "the hell out of" America.
Anna's two youngest boys, Leo and Gino, were also pretty upset by the news because they had just started to welcome Mursel into their lives and appreciate him being around.
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.
As for Joey, he was happy about the news and accused his mother of never thinking things through or considering all possible outcomes. Joey was disappointed in his mom for putting the family through all this.
In the days leading up to Mursel's flight back to Turkey, Anna forced him to stay in a hotel. She cried constantly and called him "weak." She ignored his phone calls and texts unless she watched to yell at him.
"If we really cannot be together, I want you gone," Anna told Mursel via text.
Mursel said he felt lonely in a foreign land and wished he could spend his final days in America with Anna, but Anna insisted she no longer liked him and they were finished.
"I want to kiss her because I love her. I couldn't sleep at all. All the time I am thinking about this," Mursel vented in a confessional.
Anna couldn't believe that Mursel wasn't choosing her and putting her first.
Anna then reluctantly decided to drive Mursel to the airport with false hope he would come around and decide to stay at the last minute.
"He tells me he loves me, but he can't man up and prove it," Anna said in a confessional.
Mursel repeated how he loved Anna so much, but Anna ran out of the airport quickly.
"I never thought we'd be here. He's broken my heart and I'm not going to go back from this. I don't think I can," Anna told the cameras.
On the latest episode of 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, Anna was shown waiting for Mursel's phone call after he left America.
An on-screen graphic then revealed the following to viewers: "Anna called the production crew last night. Mursel told her that he wants to return to America... Mursel has an interview with the U.S. Embassy, requesting his K-1 Visa be reissued."
Anna said she was really heartbroken when Mursel returned to Turkey, but once he arrived to his home country, his parents apparently had a change of heart and gave Mursel their blessing to marry Anna, despite the fact she has three young sons.
"We argued for a very, very long time," Mursel admitted. "So I was in total shock when they told me I could actually marry Anna."
Mursel said it was probably his mother who changed her mind first and came up with the idea because she felt sorry for her son.
Mursel therefore decided to return to America, but Anna believed it was a long shot for him to travel on the same K-1 visa. Regardless, Anna was so grateful they could at least try for it, and she maintained high hopes.
Suddenly, Mursel called Anna and revealed his visa had been approved. Anna expressed how she was so happy, and then Mursel shared he'd leave Turkey in two days. In fact, Mursel had already bought his ticket to America.
Mursel gushed about how he's "very lucky with official documents," and Anna admitted she was in "disbelief" upon hearing the news.
Anna and Mursel exchanged professions of love, but the couple would be in a race to wed within hours of Mursel's arrival -- before midnight -- in the United States.
Anna then broke the news to her sons. While her two youngest sons were happy about Mursel's return, Joey was displeased and told the cameras his mother was making a mistake.
Joey told the cameras he didn't like how Mursel treated his mom and threatened to not attend the wedding, which broke Anna's heart because she really needed the support of her children.
Did Anna and Mursel have enough time to get married, and is the 90 Day Fiance couple still together now?
Anna confirmed on Instagram in November 2019 that she and Mursel got engaged on September 8, 2018.
Anna announced the news as part of her explanation as to why she and Mursel appear to wear wedding rings on90 Day Fiance's seventh season.
"I finally got the ok! I've gotten a lot of questions about the rings Mursel and I wear. In Turkey it is customary to have an Engagement ceremony. This involves exchanging rings," Anna captioned a series of photos of the couple celebrating at a fancy event.
"A red ribbon is tied to both rings and the Elder of the family says a prayer and some words to bless the Engagement and the ribbon is then cut. Then the couple goes around and kisses the hands of the Elders. It is also customary for the guests to pin money on the newly Engaged couple."
Anna concluded, "We didn't go through the whole engagement custom which would also involve both families meeting and getting a blessing due to my family not being in Turkey. We were engaged September 8 2018! Hopefully this clears some questions."
Anna and Mursel then got married one year after their engagement!
Anna and Mursel tied the knot in Nebraska on September 8, 2019, according to court records obtained by Starcasm.
Since it appeared Mursel had his K-1 Visa reissued in no time at all -- and only a couple of days remained before it would expire -- after his interview with the U.S. Embassy in Turkey, 90 Day Fiance fans were skeptical of whether he ever truly returned to Turkey to begin with.
Fans speculated90 Day Fiance may have faked that storyline for drama and entertainment.
However, Anna insisted during a recent Instagram Live session the storyline was real and authentic, InTouch Weekly reported.
In a Q&A with fans, one of Anna's followers reportedly asked her, "Is it true Mursel never left to turkey?"
And then the Nebraska native responded, "Mursel did leave to turkey. It's really true," according to In Touch.
The couple has refrained from sharing photos or writing messages about each other on social media, but Mursel changed his home state to Nebraska on his Facebook late last year.
At one point, Anna posted a video with her sons to her Instagram and it seemed like Mursel's voice could be heard yelling something in the background at her home, giving away he's still in the United States.
In January, however, Anna revealed on Instagram she had a health scare in which doctors discovered blood clots in her leg and both of her lungs, and she did not mention whether Mursel was around to support her or help her in the recovery process.
"I'm now on bed rest for the next few days. This is the scariest thing I've gone through. Everything I've read... is really scary," Anna revealed in her Instagram Stories.
"It could happen to anyone. If you feel like something isn't right...Take time to get it looked at. It could save your life."
But Anna hinted she and Mursel are still a couple when she wrote his name as a hashtag in a mid-December 2019 post on Instagram.
"We need more days till Christmas! #notready, #90dayfiance, #oldestboy, #mursel," Anna captioned a photo with her son.
And back in November, Anna revealed how to say the word "turkey" in Turkish in honor of Thanksgiving, suggesting Mursel is still her man. She apparently continues to learn the language and appreciate Mursel's culture.
Anna owns Beauty and the Bees Honey, a business which sells honey and a wide array of bees wax products.
Mursel studied at California State University, Northridge, according to Starcasm, but it's unclear whether Mursel came to America for the program or participated in online courses.
