‘90 Day Fiancé’ Fans Are Hilariously Comparing Mike to This ‘Recess’ Character

Mike works out after massive fight with Natalie on ’90 Day Fiancé’

Mike has had quite the week dealing with the drama in his relationship with Natalie Mordovtseva. On the July 16th episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, it has been a week since Natalie’s nose surgery to help with her breathing issues. While her health issues might be better, the relationship between the couple is as toxic as ever.

After Natalie left and ghosted Mike after their fight and drove herself to her surgery appointment, the couple has been home focusing on Natalie’s healing and avoiding the tough conversations. Natalie’s nose is nearly healed in the recent episode after a week, and she’s ready to start working out with Mike again. After their tire pushing exercise, Mike uses the opportunity to talk to Natalie about how he felt being abandoned and ghosted by her.
