Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio raised a lot of eyebrows in season 7 of 90 Day Fiance – and it had nothing to do with their age difference. Michael and his ex-wife Sarah seemed to be close, and when Juliana Custodio came into the picture, both women were also on good terms, which is usually a rarity for the series.
However, Juliana Custodio’s journey to the US was not the smoothest, as her visa was reportedly rejected twice due to “illicit intentions”, Screenrant reports. Fans remember when the couple went to a mediator to discuss marriage, but the meeting didn’t go so well. Juliana Custodio ended up in tears as she said: “Men don’t control me”. The pre-nup seemed to be a minor concern as TLC cameras captured their wedding officiated by Sarah. That’s one way to keep it in the family, right?
