Because of the tragedy, Dempsey did not have a traditional upbringing. Instead, she had a rocky young-adult life of moving from place to place in order to try to find happiness.

“I left home when I was 18. I was just so unhappy,” Dempsey revealed.

Meanwhile, Statler did not go through the same tragedy as she did, but she also had a complicated childhood.

Statler can relate to Dempsey's difficult childhood.

In the episode before Dempsey's reveal, Episode 8, Statler shared more about her own life, including the fact that she is adopted. She didn't reveal whether she knows her biological family, or what age she was put up for adoption.

Statler opened up about some of her trust issues and revealed that they stemmed from her experiences as an adopted child and from facing a lot of “rejection” in her life. Despite this, she admitted Dempsey “gives me all the things that I really really need, like reassurance and safety," People shared.

Their shared hardships might be the reason why the couple bonded on so many levels.

Based on their public social media accounts, it's unclear whether the couple is still together. For the sake of the show, the two might be keeping their relationship status a secret to avoid spoilers for people following along.

Statler hasn't posted an Instagram photo since April 2023, but Dempsey regularly posts on her Instagram page. None of her latest photos have mentioned Statler in any way.

Since Statler revealed on-camera that she has cheated on one of her previous partners before getting with Dempsey, that reveal alone might have caused their downfall.

Season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days is available to watch on TLC and stream on Discovery+.
