90 Day Fiancé couple Tania Maduro and Syngin Colchester were the subject of split rumors long before they confirmed their breakup in October 2021. Prior to their announcement, fans were already questioning if the married duo were going strong following their reality TV drama on season 7 and appearances on the TLC spinoffs. Find out what led up to their breakup and where they stand today in 2022.
How Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Tania and Syngin Meet?
The couple met when Tania visited South Africa because she had matched with another man on a dating app. When the two of them didn’t hit it off, she ended up chatting it up with bartender Syngin and wound up staying in South Africa for more than four months.
After overcoming the hardships of a long-distance relationship, the pair wed in a July 2019 ceremony that was filmed for the 90 Day Fiancé season 7 finale, which aired in February 2020. They later appeared in season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, in which they documented their marital drama for TLC cameras.
During his return on 90 Day Bares All in March 2021, Syngin said that ultimately what caused them to reevaluate their romance was that he didn’t want to have kids and Tania did. He added their dynamic had already “been rough” for a couple of months, despite trying out marriage counseling to get past their issues.
Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Tania and Syngin Still Together?
The couple revealed they parted ways after four years together in an October 2021 statement.
“Some rumors are true — #SingleLife New Season was announced and yes I am single, @syngin_colchester is single — we’re all single!! Now don’t go all at once to his DMs ladies or he’ll never be able to sort them all out,” Tania said about her estranged husband in a video posted via her Instagram at the time.
Fans watched as Tania and Syngin discovered the ways they were incompatible during their time on the spinoff, with him going on to hint at their split in a since-deleted comment teasing his return to TV in September 2021.
Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Tania and Syngin Divorced?
In a November 2021 episode of The Single Life, Syngin said that proceeding with a divorce was “the best way forward” for both of them.
“Me and Tania are still doing things that couples do,” he admitted. “But it’s time to step up and get the divorce going. It’s really hard because it’s the cycle of talking about separating, but both of us are too chicken to actually do it because there’s a lot of emotional investment that we’ve put into our relationship.”
“I want to be intimate, I still want to kiss. Why not?” she said about her take on their relationship. “We’re together, we’re still living together. Technically, yeah, we’re separating, but we’re not actually separated yet, like, I don’t consider myself single as of yet, until he’s finally out from under the same roof as me.”
However In Touch can confirm as of August 30, 2022, the former flames have not started the divorce proceedings.
