On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa’s marriage is struggling, and there has been a lot of drama. They’re fresh from a trip to Washington to see Asuelu’s family, and things were tense from the very beginning. Asuelu’s family requested $1,000, but Asuelu can only offer up $100. This is a problem, and when Kalani speaks with Asuelu’s mother, Lesina, and his sister, Tammy, about it, things get explosive.
When Kalani tells her husband about the fight with his family, Asuelu and Kalani end up in an argument that continues even after Asuelu leaves to go to his family’s house. On the way back home to Utah, Kalani admits to the cameras that she doesn’t want to be married anymore.
Asuelu has some concerns when it comes to speaking to a therapist with his wife, Kalani
This week, Kalani and Asuleu talk about things, and agree to go to therapy. “I think it was easy for us to avoid our issues for so long because Oliver was little, but he’s getting older,” Kalani says to Asuelu. “Kennedy’s getting older. I want them to see like a healthy relationship. I just don’t want them to see all of this craziness.”
She brings up therapy as a way to make “healthy steps” together. “I think that like we need to go to therapy so we can start making healthy steps in our relationship because this just isn’t working,” Kalani continues.
However, Asuelu has some concerns. “I want a Samoan person. They understand where I’ve grown up, and now he live here. Like, he understand like, life here and women here,” Asuelu says.
“So you want a male, Samoan therapist?” Kalani questions.
“Maybe it’s better,” Asuelu replies. He mentions that he wants to be able to speak his own language, and Kalani says they can get a translator.
They do manage to go to therapy, and they speak with a therapist along with a translator to help make Asuelu feel more comfortable.
