90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5 couple, Meisha Johnson and Nicola Kanaan faced a unique predicament after getting engaged. Meisha, a 43-year-old, lived a glam lifestyle until she had a spiritual awakening in her living room over a decade ago. Meisha had been vacuuming her living room when she saw two huge suns suspended out of the sky in front of her window. Meisha was led to the Roman Catholic Church by a voice, and since her conversion, Meisha started looking for like-minded people to spend time with.
Meisha had left her reporter job by then and started working as a motivational speaker. She connected with Nicola online when he reached out to offer her support in navigating her new spiritual lifestyle. Meisha and Nicola were in an online relationship for seven years. In the meantime, Nicola, a 46-year-old virgin who didn’t have a proper job, hadn’t told his family about Meisha being his girlfriend. Even after Meisha went to Israel, Nicola avoided introducing her to his mom and brothers. Getting their approval was easy for Meisha as Nicola’s mother even agreed to send Nicola to the U.S. to marry Meisha.
Meisha Got Married To A Swedish Man At 22

Meisha’s First Marriage Is Yet To Get An Annulment From The Church
After Nicola proposed to Meisha, she was shocked by his romantic gesture but also worried about their future. “There is a lot standing in our way right now,” Meisha admitted. Taking the next step and getting married was going to be difficult. “We also have the Church’s barrier of the annulment in front of us,” she added. Meisha is divorced, but for her to get remarried as a Catholic, she needed an annulment from the Church.
Nicola Could Still Come To Stay With Meisha On A Tourist Visa
Meisha applied for the annulment five months before she went to Israel. She knew she was going to come back an engaged woman.

Nicola said living in the U.S. for two to three weeks was fine, but he was against the idea if living with Meisha in the same house for three months. He felt it was like “opening the door for the devil.” Interestingly, Reddit user crose360 saw Nicola and Meisha together in the food court at the Mall of America in July. A different fan spotted them coming out of a Target near her home in Minnesota in August. Nicola has seemingly stayed in the U.S. for over a month, so does that mean that he was able to secure a K-1 visa and get married to her instantly?
