Total opposites. 90 Day Fiancé star Meisha was formerly a party girl before experiencing a “spiritual awakening” in her living room. After converting to Catholicism, she seemingly found sparks with Nicola, and made plans to meet him for the first time in his native of Israel — but is she still together with the 46-year-old virgin? Keep reading to find out season 6 stars Nicola and Meisha’s current Relationship status.
How Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Nicola and Meisha Meet?
Meisha is a 43-year-old from Minnesota and considered herself the “fun, party girl” until she experienced a “spiritual awakening” in her home. Now a Catholic convert, she met Nicola online over seven years ago while exploring her newfound faith.
Nicola is from Israel and currently lives with his mom. While the 46-year-old has been in a serious relationship before, he is a proud virgin.
“The last time I kissed a woman was 16 years ago, I haven’t touched a woman for 16 years,” Nicole told cameras during his debut on the June 18 episode. In another clip, the TLC newbie told producers that he was adamant about staying celibate until he was married.
“So it don’t matter if I am 18 or 46 or 65, I have to be virgin and celibate until I get married to the right woman [sic],” he affirmed.
Meisha admitted that Nicola’s celibacy worried her as he has virtually no relationship experience.
“While I so admire his convictions, at the same time, it makes me worried knowing that I need certain things like affection. A lot of affection,” she told cameras in another scene. “Obviously, there’s no sex before marriage. So when I get there, I have to just see how he is with just even just basic affection.”
Are 90 Day Fiance’s Nicola and Meisha Still Together?
While Nicola and Meisha have yet to publicly comment on their relationship, Nicola’s friend, Wasim, believed that Meisha was out of the Israel native’s “league.”
“Meisha is a beautiful and attractive woman,” Wasim told producers in the teaser clip. “It will be hard for people to believe that this person right here, who has no job, no money, who is totally broke, who does nothing but sit in his room praying to Mary is actually loved by a woman like Meisha.”
After Nicola admitted that he wasn’t expecting to fall in love with a divorced woman and his first choice would’ve been a virgin, he said her past didn’t matter because she became “anew” when God came into her life. Not only are outside influences set to cause tension in the relationship, but Nicola is “sure” his mom “won’t like Meisha.”
“Even though my mom is not devout Catholic, people in the Middle East want you to marry a virgin,” he continued. “That’s how the tradition is here. And my mom will say, ‘Why you want to marry divorced woman? [sic]’”
Not only will Meisha have to win the affection of Nicola’s mom, but she’s also currently in the process of annulling her first marriage as they cannot get married “under the eyes of God” without it.
“I’m trying to stay positive that everything is going to work out the way that I believe it should,” Meisha told producers during the June 18 episode. “But if I don’t get this annulment, then I’m not sure what’s gonna happen.”
Noting that their end goal is to apply for the K-1 visa, without marriage, she admitted, “I don’t think realistically, we have a future.”
The pair seemed to work through their issues during the June 25 episode when Meisha traveled to Israel to spend two weeks with Nicola.
They kissed when they reunited at the airport, though faced a roadblock when they argued over how many clothes she packed.
Nicola later told Meisha that he would marry her immediately if she got her last marriage annulled, though she admitted she wasn’t sure if they knew each other well enough to take that step.
During the July 2 episode, the Couple faced another obstacle when Meisha learned that Nicola was keeping their relationship a secret from his family.
“It makes me think, like, maybe the reason he’s been hiding me is maybe because he’s ashamed of my past,” she admitted in a confessional.
However, Nicola defended his decision to not bring his family into their relationship. “Show me in the Bible where it says ‘go tell your brother’ that you need to tell him, ‘I am getting married,’” he said.
He went on to argue that meeting his family was “not so important for [their] relationship.”
Later in the episode, Meisha asked Nicola if he was “embarrassed” of her.
“Oh my god, Meisha, why do you say this word?” he responded. “Get out from your lexicon. Embarrassed? Embarrassed for what? All this love between us, I would be embarrassed from you, Meisha?”
He then slammed her concerns as “drama” and told her that she was speaking “nonsense.”
“The problem with you, Meisha, is that you never want to be done with any conversation,” Nicola continued. “When you start to talk, you never stop. You are the most cute when you are mute, I’ll be honest with you.”
Meisha pressed Nicola further about his family during the July 16 episode, which led to another argument. While Nicola insisted that they had all the time in the world to introduce Meisha to his family, Meisha argued that their future wasn’t set in stone.
“We don’t know if we have our entire lives together,” Meisha said. “We need to figure that out over the next two weeks.”
Meisha then gave Nicola an ultimatum: either they get engaged by the end of her trip or the relationship is over. Nicola was shocked.
“Meisha never talks like that on the phone,” he said. “She says that we are meant to be together, we will get married and nothing will separate us. We will go through all the obstacles. And it’s [the] first time that she’s treating the relationship [this way]. I’m trying to listen to her, but I’m not going to change. I’m going to be the same person. So that makes me worry about our future because my goal is to [get] engaged to her, because I love her so much.”
