Tonight marked a number of firsts for TLC’s 90 Day Fiance as it brought us the first cancelled wedding in the history of the show plus the revelation that a couple had secretly gotten married!
Viewers of the hit series saw Luis Mendez, 26, walk out on his “fiance” Molly Hopkins following multiple blowout fights about her kids, his lack of maturity, and of course let’s not forget ReligionGate.

Molly’s confession matches our earlier report that they got married on July 20 after we uncovered their marriage certificate.

Another interesting tidbit was that Luis’s brothers were actually already on their way from New Jersey for the couple’s wedding, making it quite convenient for them to pick him up once he informed them the wedding was called off.
“Luis’s brothers were driving down from New Jersey for the wedding. They were already in South Carolina before they knew the wedding had been called off,” tweeted TLC.
Finally, TLC also pointed out the fact that this is actually the first wedding to be called off in 5 seasons of the show. And we all know why now — it’s because Luis knows he gets to stay in the country thanks to their legal marital status! #WellPlayedLuis. #YouGotPlayedMolly.
