They’re making it work! 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Jon and Rachel Walters are currently husband and wife, but they are actually still living separately in two different countries. Rachel is still living in Albuquerque, NM while Jon is still in London, England — but they’re doing everything they can to keep their long distance relationship and marriage strong.
Jon and Rachel took to their joint Instagram account Follow Our Fairytale to share a screenshot that Jon took during a Facetime convo with his wife, which the couple heavily relies on for their communication since they are so far apart. “Love is this the shortest distance between [two] hearts,” the caption read.
The last time Jon and Rachel saw each other in person was during her trip to England for their May elopement ceremony where they tied the knot. Their wedding was featured on Season 2 of TLC’s hit reality TV series 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. The couple previously revealed that they chose to get married first so that they could apply for a spousal visa for Jon to enter the United States instead of the K-1 fiancé visa because with Jon’s criminal record, it would be a higher chance of him being granted access into America as the spouse of an American citizen rather than just a fiancé.
When the couple returned for the tell-all, Rachel and Jon had some bad news to share with fans about the status of their visa application: they have not yet started the process because they could not afford to pay the fees required to file the paperwork. “It’s non-existent at the moment,” Rachel said about Jon’s visa application. “We need an absurd amount of money to even start the process. It’s non-going.”
But Jon and Rachel are not letting the distance keep them apart. Rachel shared a screenshot of a countdown app which revealed that she is less than two months away from visiting her husband in England. “Almost there, babe,” she wrote in the caption.
