Get ready, 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days fans, because there’s a new couple joining the Season 2 cast! Now that things seem to be officially over between stars Darcey Silva and Jesse Meester, producers are bringing a new couple into the mix. Marta, a 30-year-old from Milwaukee, WI will be introduced on tonight’s episode, and in a sneak peek, she opened up about her hot online boyfriend, Daya.
“American guys, they want no strings attached, no commitment. That’s just the kind of culture we live in right now and it makes dating hard, but I do want to get married one day and I think I finally found the one,” Marta said in her confessional.

She said that she met Daya online after she received a friend request from him. She said he was a “super sexy man,” but she thought he was a catfish because she couldn’t figure out why a man from Algeria would want to be her friend.
“I didn’t know him but it didn’t scare me, it intrigued me and then we just started messaging each other back and forth and it just kept going,” she said. But as she got to know him, she learned more about him. Daya is 26 years old, he’s Muslim, and he has all of the qualities that Marta was looking for: a family man who is hardworking, and “very sweet.”
But there’s one big obstacle standing in their way — Marta does not speak Arabic and Daya doesn’t speak English. They have to resort to messaging each other in order to communicate, because they can type out what they want to say, translate it, then send it to each other. But despite the fact that there is a language barrier between them, their connection seems serious and they even call each other “husband” and “wife.”
She’s a Catholic exotic dancer, he comes from a strict Muslim family in Algeria. Will their online love translate to a first date? Find out this season on #90DayFiance: Before the 90 Days, premiering TONIGHT at 8/7c on TLC or stream live on the #TLCgo app.

“He is somebody that gives me hope and a future that I one day want but we cannot just continue this pen pal relationship,” Marta said. “So I’m going for two weeks to Algeria to meet in person.” Fans will have to tune in to find out how their relationship plays out!
