Reality show couple divorce after only seven months of marriage

On Behalf of | Feb 20, 2019 | Divorce

Since 2014, Ohio reality TV fans have been treated to the saga of international romances in the show, “90 Day Fiance.” While some of the stars over the years have remained married, some have inevitably gone through a divorce. Contestants in Season 6 of the show, Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima, are headed for divorce, as Johnson filed his paperwork just last month.

The two found each other on a social media site and their first meeting was in Mexico. A June 2018 wedding came after Johnson proposed only five days after they met. However, it seems the two were a mismatch early on in the marriage. Johnson got more than he bargained for while trying to keep up with the lifestyle Lima wanted for herself. Just five months into the marriage, Lima was arrested on a domestic abuse charge but Johnson chose to not press charges.

Johnson took to social media to explain that Lima has some emotional issues he was trying to diffuse but the problems in the moment escalated. However, that was apparently not the last physical altercation brought on by Lima. Just last month she was charged with domestic battery after another incident. Nevertheless, Johnson is not blameless in their marital problems. He admitted in December that he had not been faithful to his wife and is taking responsibility for his actions.

No matter how long two people know each other before deciding to marry, sometimes it just does not work out. When working out the terms of a divorce, it is important to approach the task with a clear head and leveled emotions. An Ohio attorney is a good source of support to ensure that any decisions made are fair and protect the client’s interests.
