Fans of 90 Day Fiance met Natalie Mordovtseva during Season 7 when she began her relationship with Mike Youngquist.

The Ukraine native started a new life in Washington with Mike despite not being very fond of his hometown.

The two struggled to solidify their relationship due to arguments about finances, living arrangements, and even interfering family members.

Despite their differences, Mike and Natalie stayed together and even started going to counseling to help save their relationship.

In the end, the two realized they just weren’t a good fit for one another and decided to separate. Their split was messy and emotional, but it seems that Natalie is now able to focus on the good that came from their union.

In a social media post, she shared a photo taken with Mike highlighting how their meeting has impacted her life.
