90 Day Fiance: Paul Staehle & Karine Martins in Kentucky

Paul Staehle and wife Karine Martins move to Kentucky with Pierre Staehle in new 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After episodes. After trying to live in Brazil for some time, the TLC family move to America to better their lives. But, that also means dealing with a new set of challenges.

Karine and hubby Paul need stability in America. That means finding things like a stable source of income and housing. And that transition is hard to adjust to for them. Of course, Paul first tried to get Edna Staehle to take them into her home. That didn’t go very well.

90 Day Fiance: Edna Staehle Cuts Paul No Slack

Even though it’s quite an adjustment for Paul and family, Edna Staehle doesn’t give her son any slack. Edna told him point-blank in the past to make better choices as he should have “a long time ago.” She advised her son to get his act together and support his family. And, she continues that now.

Paul Staehle and 90 Day Fiance Karine pack for the airport. But, on a video chat, Edna Staehle reminds him he doesn’t have a job or place to stay. She tells him these things “have to be worked out” now. This tough love from his mother hits a nerve with Paul. But, these are significant concerns.

Paul wants to shack up at papa and Edna Staehle’s house when he and his family arrive on Happily Ever After. But, Edna has none of it. She tells him he must do what’s right and be “responsible.” Edna Staehle offers to help with a hotel for a few days. But, the lecture continues on 90 Day Fiance.

Meanwhile, Paul’s concerned Edna Staehle could rub Karine the wrong way. And, that it’ll make her want to turn around and head right back to Brazil. Karine suggested Paul come to America alone while she stays in Brazil with Pierre. But, Paul Staehle doesn’t want to split up his 90 Day Fiance family.
