Are 90 Day Fiancé stars Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa still together? The couple has hit several rough patches since tying the knot in September 2018. By the time they returned for season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in April 2021, they seemed to be in a better place, but lack of communication plus conflict with their families could drive another wedge between them. Keep scrolling below for an update on where Kalani and Asuelu stand today.
Kalani and Asuelu made their 90 Day Fiancé debut on season 6 of the TLC flagship series. They met while Kalani was on vacation in Asuelu’s native country of Samoa, and he worked at the resort where she was staying. They quickly got pregnant and welcomed baby No. 1, son Oliver, in January 2018. Shortly after, they began the process for Asuelu’s K-1 visa so he could move to the United States and they could be a family.
Almost immediately, Kalani’s family was skeptical of her relationship with Asuelu, and things worsened when Kalani learned she was pregnant again and expecting baby No. 2 with Asuelu shortly after he arrived in America. Asuelu was able to earn the blessing of Kalani’s mom, Lisa, and dad, Low, by promising he would step up and provide for his family of four, and the couple wed during a romantic sunset ceremony on a boat in California.
The couple continued to share their journey on season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Kalani and Asuelu were struggling to see eye to eye over money and their relationship. Kalani also felt Asuelu wasn’t doing his part as a husband or a father as she struggled to adjust to being a mom of two, having given birth to son Kennedy in May 2019. During a particularly heated fight, Asuelu called Kalani a “bitch” — which upset her family and they no longer supported their marriage.
Kalani decided to stay with Asuelu to work out their issues, but they faced another test when they visited Asuelu’s family in Washington. During their trip, which took place in the 2019 holiday season, Asuelu’s mom, Lesina, and sister, Tammy, pressured him to send money back home to his family in Samoa. Asuelu worked a part-time job at a local grocery store at the time and was struggling to provide for his family of four at the time, but Lesina and Tammy felt Kalani was the reason why Asuelu didn’t want to financially help them.
The fight over money reached a peak when Tammy and Lesina confronted Kalani, and Tammy threatened to “beat” Kalani “up.” The fight led to an argument between Kalani and Asuelu and before they headed back to their home in Utah, which they share with Kalani’s parents, Kalani admitted she no longer wanted to be married to her husband.
She had a change of heart after they got back home when Asuelu agreed to go to couple’s counseling. Therapy seemed to help, but the couple were on the rocks again when the coronavirus pandemic reached a peak in the United States in spring 2020. Kalani felt Asuelu was not adhering to social distancing guidelines and putting their children and her mom and dad at risk, so she sent him to go live with his mom and sister for several weeks.
It was a shock when Kalani and Asuelu filmed the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever Afer? season 5 reunion together. Asuelu was back and living with his wife, their two kids and her parents but he was still not on good terms with Kalani.
Fans were surprised to see that Kalani and Asuelu were still together when they returned for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever Afer? season 6. They seemed to be in a better place both in their marriage and financially, as Asuelu had taken a job as a rideshare driver, but they still were facing communication issues. They were even looking to buy a house so they could move out of Kalani’s parents’ home, and they felt it would help save their marriage if they were in a place of their own.
But the couple realized they couldn’t afford to move out, which led to more tension because they also struggled with intimacy issues. Kalani tried to express her wants and needs, which led to a big fight and Kalani even consulted with a divorce lawyer to discuss her options.
Unfortunately, shortly after their argument, Asuelu got into a car accident and his near-death experience served as a “wakeup call” for the couple. They vowed to work on their marriage and they even took a romantic getaway trip where they reconnected.
Things took another turn when they clashed over whether or not to have another baby, as Asuelu wanted to grow their family but Kalani did not want to get pregnant again. In the midst of their tension, Asuelu’s family threatened to drive an even bigger wedge between them when they visited them for Christmas 2020. In a preview for the Sunday, August 1 episode, a huge brawl breaks out between Kalani and her sister Kolini and Tammy and Lesina.
While it seems Kalani and Asuelu’s marriage may not be able to weather another family feud, it seems the couple is still together. Kalani and Asuelu enjoyed a family vacation to Disney in July 2021, and it seems like they are still going strong.
