In season 6 of 90 Day Fiance, viewers were introduced to Fernanda Flores, then 19, and her 32-year-old fiancé Jonathan Rivera.

The couple met when Jonathan was vacationing in Fernanda’s home country of Mexico. They became engaged and Fernanda moved to join Jonathan in his home of Lumberton, North Carolina.

The North Carolina life, however, wasn’t for Fernanda. She wanted to live in a big city, but Jonathan wouldn’t budge. They argued over that and many other things, and eventually separated less than a year after they got married.

The split got nasty, and Fernanda took to YouTube to tell her side of the story.

The divorce is official

On Monday, Jonathan and Fernanda’s divorce was finalized. Right after she got home, Fernanda filmed a YouTube video about her experience.

She thanked her family and friends, saying that she feels lucky that her “support system is huge.”

Fernanda seemed very happy and said she feels “very, very blessed and loved.” She said that she felt nervous about the situation the night before, mainly because she hadn’t seen Jonathan in almost a year- incidentally, longer than their marriage lasted.

However, when she finally got to court, she said she didn’t feel bad, just numb. She said that she had been praying for peace regarding the situation and felt that her prayers worked.

Ultimately, Fernanda seems very happy with her life, saying that while the marriage was a bad decision, she is proud of the way she handled it. She said that while it’s easy to feel like a failure due to the judgment of others, she did what she needed for herself.

She offered advice to others going through a divorce, promising that they’d come out the other side better and happier than before.

Fernanda is now looking forward to the future so she can meet new people and move on with her life.

Fernanda and Jonathan are the second couple to split from their season

Fernanda and Jonathan join Colt and Larissa as broken-up couples from season 6. Ashley Martson and Jay Smith have broken up several times, but always seem to get back together.

As far as we know, the other season 6 couples, Olga and Steven, Eric and Leida, and Kalani and Asuelu, are all still together. Kalani and Asuelu even had a second child together, Kennedy, a brother for Oliver, and appear on Pillow Talk.

  1. The devil wears the best disguises — Fernanda & Larrisa a 3rd world stock; they actually are uncivilized completely inmoral (a good 90%) specifically the ones from the farms or countryside. They are raised extremely spoiled and learn to get attention at any cost if they feel they’re not getting it… My mother was born in So. America..I was ashamed of her lowclass acts– managed to leave at an early age to the US and worked hard to achieve my goals..sleeped in the streets many times.. but made it to provide my daughter w/a house f our own. Freeloaders will never respect that they see us like idiots. In many cases we choose to be…

  2. I’m so happy to hear Olga and Steven, Eric and Leida, and Kalani and Asuelu, are all still together!!
    Steven you’re an amazing humble young man with good values for a family man and Sweet Olga was made to fit you perfectly as your wife. She’s smart and has a natural spirit to move forward and stand up at the world’s ups and downs by your side. Try to always remember son–your her husband not her boss, be patient, words not need to be spoken–instead expose her to arts, museums, theater that she may choose a possible mini-career once your son goes to school and she’s not bored when you’re not around —
    Kalani, sweet tender hearted mom! Let Asuelu hang out with your Dad. He is his new son and will guide him well to the ropes needed to support his new growing family in the land he has chosen. Enjoy your sons while they’re little, it goes fast. Once they’re in school, you posses the heart and tools needed have a hobbie and sell online, who knows
    Eric, good man, but you need to open your mouth when is due. I have no doubt Leida loves you, she confronted her parents and her insisting sister, actually told them that she loved you — after the awful welcome she encountered in ‘Your’ house. Leida seen reality for the first time; accepting the extremely limited conditions of living for her and her son and to top it all a disrespectful ‘adult’ = Tasha insulting her and throwing her out of the house you temporarily offered Leida. She took her son away from the constant loving affections of her grandparents and his own father..he may not speak, but I’m sure he misses them and now all he hears are screams. Leida is a fighter, she’s not lazy, wants to better her career, but you made her have doubts…this woman is well mannered and well raised — she expected you to defend and support her…not a spoiled, undiciplined & uneducated 18 yr old. Most American college kids work to pay for their books and needs you know.
