Are 90 Day Fiancé stars Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa still together? Since tying the married in September 2018, the pair has endured various difficulties. In April 2021, when they returned for the sixth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, they appeared to be in a better place; but, a lack of communication and conflict with their families put another wedge between them. Scroll down for an update on the status of Kalani and Asuelu in 2023.
How Long Have Kalani and Asuelu Been Together?
Kalani Faagata and Asuelu made their debut on the TLC flagship series 90 Day Fiancé during its sixth season. They met while Kalani was on holiday in Asuelu’s native Samoa, where he was employed at the resort where she was staying. They became pregnant soon and delivered their first child, Oliver, in January 2018. Soon thereafter, they initiated the application process for Asuelu’s K-1 visa so that he could migrate to the United States and they could become a family.
Almost immediately, Kalani’s family was wary of her relationship with Asuelu, and the situation exacerbated when she discovered she was pregnant with Asuelu’s second child shortly after his arrival in the United States. Asuelu was able to obtain the approval of Kalani’s mother, Lisa, and father, Low, by promising to provide for his family of four. The wedding took place during a lovely sunset ceremony on a boat in California.
What Went Wrong Between Kalani and Asuelu?
In season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, the pair continues to chronicle their story. In regards to money and their relationship, Kalani and Asuelu had difficulty agreeing. Kalani also believed that Asuelu was not fulfilling his responsibilities as a husband and parent as she struggled to adjust to being a mother of two after giving birth to Kennedy in May 2019. During a particularly intense argument, Asuelu referred to Kalani as a “bitch,” upsetting her family to the point where they no longer supported their marriage.
When Kalani and Asuelu Pulaa travelled to Washington, D.C. to see Asuelu’s relatives, they were presented with a new challenge. During the 2019 holiday season, Asuelu’s mother, Lesina, and sister, Tammy, exerted pressure on him to send money to his family in Samoa. Lesina and Tammy believed that Kalani was the reason why Asuelu did not want to financially assist them. At the time, Asuelu held a part-time job at a local grocery store and was trying to support for his four-person family.
Which ’90 Day Fiance’ Couples Are Still Together?
Tammy and Lesina confronted Kalani over the issue of money, at which point Tammy threatened to “beat up” Kalani. Before returning to their home in Utah, which they share with Kalani’s parents, Kalani disclosed that she no longer desired to be married to her husband.
After returning home, she had a change of heart when Asuelu accepted to couple’s counselling. When the coronavirus epidemic reached its climax in the United States in the spring of 2020, the couple’s relationship had deteriorated despite therapy. Kalani believed that Asuelu was violating social distancing standards and endangering their children and her parents, so she sent him to live with his mother and sister for several weeks.
Did Kalani and Asuelu Get Divorced?
It was surprising when Kalani and Asuelu recorded the season 5 reunion of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? together. Asuelu had returned to live with his wife, their two children, and her parents, but his relationship with Kalani remained strained.
Fans were surprised to find Kalani and Asuelu still together when they returned for the sixth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. Asuelu’s new work as a rideshare driver made it appear that their marital and financial situation had improved, but they still had communication problems. They were even seeking to buy a property so they could move out of Kalani’s parents’ home because they believed that having their own residence would help save their marriage.
However, the couple found they could not afford to move out, which exacerbated their intimacy issues and increased tension. Kalani attempted to communicate her goals and requirements, which resulted in a heated argument; Kalani even called a divorce attorney to evaluate her choices.
Unfortunately, shortly after their dispute, Asuelu was involved in a car accident, which acted as a “wake-up call” for the couple. They decided to work on their relationship and even took a romantic break to reunite.
Are Kalani and Asuelu Still Together?
In July 2021, Kalani and Asuelu took a family vacation to Disney, and in March 2022, they took a family vacation to Hawaii.
After a fan asked him where his “beautiful wife” was, Asuelu posted a TikTok and Instagram video featuring himself, Kalani, their children, and her sister Kolini surfing in the Aloha State.
However, in June 2022, Asuelu posted a lengthy letter on Instagram, stating that he did not know where Kalani was, despite the fact that people had been asking him on social media recently.
“[She] does not wish to join my Live, nor does she wish to film on TikTok with me. She is different from her previous self. She does not desire a date with me. Everything she needs I provide, [especially] the sons,” he added, indicating a possible separation.
