Fans were first introduced to Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet during Season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé. The couple first met via a dating app, when the Tampa-native flew to Dublin to meet Andrei in person, taking their relationship off-screen. Though Elizabeth’s family did not agree with her new Moldovan boyfriend, the pair got married in 90 days so he could move and live in the United States with his lovely new bride.
During Elizabeth & Andrei: What Now?, fans watched as Elizabeth’s sisters continued to push their brother-in-law’s buttons and question Andrei about finding a job. The couples’ finances are a continued topic of conversation throughout the episode, especially when the pair announce that they are planning a second wedding. Yes, they want another wedding and don't care what anyone thinks!
Elizabeth and Andrei reveal that they want to have a Moldovan wedding in 6 months, as his family was not able to attend the first ceremonial nuptials. Though the pair have budgeted $15,000 for wedding No. 2, the Potthasts did not take the news well.

Once the couple broke the news that they were getting married (again), all hell seemingly broke loose. Elizabeth’s family starts questioning Andrei on how he was going to pay for a wedding if he was not even working yet, and that he doesn’t have his green card work permit either.
Andrei then gets into a heated discussion with Elizabeth’s sister Jen when she continues to probe the reality star on his finances. "I’m trying to be realistic,” she snaps back at him.
Elizabeth’s dad echoed similar sentiments during a one-on-one interview, saying to the cameras, "It doesn’t really fit in with what they’re trying to do right now, which is get on their feet financially, him get a job, and get ahead of their bills. To me, it’s not necessary to have a wedding when you’re in the situation that they’re in now."
In the upcoming special, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, fans will get an inside look into how the couple is doing financially, and according to Andrei's brother-in-law, Orlando, he is taking care of his family.
"Do I like Andrei? Yeah, Andrei is married to my sister-in-law... He's a good guy, he takes care of his wife, they got a baby coming," Orlando said on his morning show, Orlando Davisand the Freakshow. "So yeah, they're doing their thing."
