When people agree to share their lives on reality TV, they never know exactly what they’re getting themselves into. That was especially true for Kirlyam Cox when she was cast in season one of TLC’s 90 Day Fiance. At the time, she and her now-husband, Alan, were getting ready to get engaged. Although the couple had their fair share of bumps in the road, they managed to make it down the aisle and they’re still happily married today. 90 Day Fiance may not have the best reputation of couples that actually stay together, but Kiryam and Alan have managed to defy the odds.
