’90 Day Fiancé’: What Happens When Paul Staehle Asks Karine Martins to Take a Pregnancy Test?
In season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Paul Staehle returns to Brazil to see his fiancé at the time, Karine Martins. He has some suspicions and asks Karine to take a pregnancy test. Read on to learn how it all goes down.
Paul Staehle returns to Brazil to see Karine Martins
“It’s my first day back in Brazil with Karine, and things are just not going well,” Paul tells the cameras. “Since me and Karine have been apart, some big trust issues have developed in our relationship. She’s been talking to other American men on social media. She’s being what I consider flirtatious. So I confronted Karine about my concerns, and she just brushes it off, and says we’re just friends don’t worry about it.”
Paul straight up asks Karine about the “flirtatious comments” and shows them to her. She asks him what the issue is, and he asks her if she minds taking another pregnancy test. Karine tells him no and gets up and walks away. Paul says he’s lost sleep over thinking about if Karine is cheating.
“I had an ex-girlfriend in the past, and she never told me that she was actually pregnant with somebody else’s kid,” Paul explains. “And it really crushed me. It made me a little paranoid in some ways.”
Karine takes a pregnancy test
Back at the hotel, Karine says she thinks it’s “foolish” for Paul to ask his fiancé to take a pregnancy test. “I am very offended right now,” Karine explains. Paul returns to the hotel with a pregnancy test that he picked up along the way. Paul says it will put his mind “at ease” if Karine takes the test.
Paul hands Karine the pregnancy test. “So you’re suggesting I had sex with other men?” Karine asks Paul.
Paul motions with his head in such a way that Karine reacts like she is shocked. “Why don’t you trust me?” she asks. Paul says he’s been away for five months, and asks her again to take the test “to settle any and all doubts.”
Of course, there is a language barrier going on at the time, so they’re using a translator app to discuss this awkward situation. Karine tells the cameras that Paul is “an insecure man.”
Paul gets the news he’s hoping for
Karine tells Paul she’ll take the test. She goes in the bathroom to handle it, and it’s a tense few moments. Karine comes out and tells Paul she’s sorry, which is strange. She shows him the test, but Paul is confused about what the results actually mean. “There’s a really light thing there,” he says.
Paul doesn’t seem to understand. He asks if it’s a baby, and Karine motions her head in a weird way. Paul asks again, “Baby? Not my baby?” She shakes her head, and apparently things are getting lost in translation. It turns out she isn’t pregnant, and she uses the translator app to explain this to Paul.
Paul apologizes, and it seems like things are headed in the right direction, at least for now. This is certainly not the last of all the Paul and Karine drama.
