We’re only three episodes into the second season of TLC’s popular long-distance romance reality series 90 Day Fiance featuring six individuals visiting the US on K-1 visas, which give them 90 days to either marry their significant other, or pack their bags and head back home. As you might imagine, these relationships often cause friends and family members (and TV viewers) to question the motives of those who might just be in it for their green card, and no other Season 2 couple has raised more eyebrows than Danielle and Mohamed.
Here is the intro video to the couple:
In addition to their 15-year age difference (Danielle is 41, Mohamed 26), there is also the fact that Danielle has four kids — one of which is only five years younger than his potential new step-dad. Here’s a video clip in which Danielle and Mohamed discuss the first meeting between him and her oldest son:
Mohamed is from Tunisia and if you search for “Tunisia men marriage” in Google images the results are a little disconcerting in that there are several featuring younger, Tunisian who have married women from other countries. The photos link to stories (mostly British) with headlines like:
Just for fun I tracked down Mohamed’s Facebook page, and here are a couple of his photos prior to taping 90 Day Fiance:
So, the big question is: Did Danielle and Mohamed get married?
******** SPOILER ALERT ********
During the K-1 visa application process, Danielle made several posts in an online forum for people going through the process, and she eventually spilled the beans on whether or not they got married (as well as some financial issues she was dealing with).

Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done. Just wait, the most hardest part! We are also in ap for 14 months now, so I can perfectly understand what you feel.

We got married July 9 and we need to fill papers out for adjustment of staus, but I lost my job the end of May so we are having some fincial problems. How long can you wait to do the the adjustment of status paper work. Can you get fees waived?

Fees are not waived, sorry. Ideally you should file as soon as possible which means being able to pay the applicable fees and possibly have a co-sponsor for the I-864 Affidavit of Support I-864.

We got married July 9 and have had some money issues, is it ok for spouse to do odd jobs making some cash like mowing lawns or things like that to help get money for adjustment of status?
So there you have it! Danielle and Mohamed got married on July 9, which is verified by this online K-1 visa tracker:
UPDATE – We’ve also done some research and discovered for sure whether or not Danielle and Mohamed’s co-stars Danny and Amy (from South Africa) have tied the knot! Just click the link to find out! Oh, and we’ve also got the scoop on Chelsea and her Nicaraguan pop star fiance Yamir!
And in case you were curious about the K-1 visa procedure (I know I was), here is some info from Wikipedia:
A K-1 visa is a visa issued to the fiancé or fiancée of a United States citizen to enter the United States. A K-1 visa requires a foreigner to marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry. Once the couple marries, the foreign citizen can adjust status to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States (Green Card holder). Although a K-1 visa is legally classified as a non-immigrant visa, it usually leads to important immigration benefits and is therefore often processed by the Immigrant Visa section of United States embassies and consulates worldwide. If a K-1 visa holder does not marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry, then he or she must depart the United States within 30 days.
The great majority of K-1 visas applied for are granted. In 2009, 95 percent of the K-1 visa applications were approved: out of 29,127 K-1 visas applied for, 27,678 were issued, and 1,449 refused, and 1,266 were waived/overcome.
Keep up with Danielle and Mohamed as well as the rest of the 90 Day Fiance Season 2 cast every Sunday night at 9/8c on TLC!
