The FYI Network couple fell in love on an online dating site but break up months later over ‘issues’ involving polygamy
’90 Day Fiancé’ stars Evelyn Cormier, David Vazquez Zermeno to divorce after 4 years of marriage
Evelyn Cormier, a single mother of two from North Carolina who starred in FYI Network’s 90 Day Fiancé, has filed for divorce from her husband David Vazquez Zermeno, whom she met on the site Plentyoffish.com.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Cormier, who was awarded custody of their son Elliot on Sunday, said she is ending her relationship with her husband “because the reason for which we met and got married had been a lot of things that ended up different than what we had anticipated them to be”.

Cormier revealed the reasons behind the marriage were “issues with polygamy”.
The couple, who met in June 2015, met on the same day she announced she was divorcing her first husband, Charles Rex Cormier, which is how they came to be in a relationship. In a short clip they shared on Instagram they explained they fell in love immediately.

Shortly after they exchanged their vows, Cormier announced her second divorce on Instagram, explaining that she felt she was “no longer loved by who she thought she was”. “After 4 years I guess I’m no longer in love,” she wrote, before listing her then-current relationship status as being single.
Cormier and Zermeno met as part of a show about individuals who fall in love with people they don’t know before meeting them in person.
In July 2017, the couple told Entertainment Tonight that they were married, though one year later, they discussed on social media that “legally, we’re just human beings married”.
Over the next two years they had shared very little but continued to vacation in Africa and Mexico together.
In the most recent Instagram post detailing their split, Cormier said that her marriage had been “unhealthy”.
“Having a strained marriage and not being able to communicate is unacceptable to me as a person,” she wrote. “I would rather live on an island with only one person than continue to be part of this unhealthy relationship.”
In October 2016, on the heels of the couple deciding to move from North Carolina to Spain for a year, they revealed they were expecting a child in a YouTube video. But months later, they acknowledged that they had decided not to keep the baby.
“I feel like I’m broken inside, but everything’s going to be alright,” Cormier told ET at the time. “We have a lot of faith. We believe in that, and we are going to live out that faith in our future.”
But, four months later, when Cormier wrote about motherhood she gushed, “Everything I work for as a mother I feel like I’m starting to deliver on.”
Many of the Instagram posts documenting the pregnancy, including a before and after picture that was a family holiday photo, were removed on Friday.
Cormier also wrote on Instagram about why she wanted to end the marriage and seek custody of her son Elliot.
“I have come to a place where I feel like it’s best for me and my son if we separate at this time,” she wrote. “Both David and I think it’s best for us to separate so we can both focus on healing and me getting everything I need to lead a happy and healthy life.”
If the two did split, it would be the second time that the couple had gotten divorced. In September 2016, their union was annulled after a court found that Zermeno had married Cormier, at least two months prior to their April 2015 union, and did not tell her.
