’90 Day Fiance’ star Tania Maduro has her first date in Aruba

Always together on paper. 90 day fiance star Tania Maduro tried to explain to a new suitor why she is still legally married to her ex-husband, Syngin Colchester.

“To me, the paperwork doesn’t mean much,” the 32-year-old TLC personality said of her first date with an Aruba bartender in a teaser for the Season 3 premiere of 90 Day Fiance: The Single Life shared exclusively with We Weekly.

Her companion then asks Tania if she wants to stay married. “No, I don’t want to stay married but I don’t feel married so I don’t think that’s something I think about,” she replies.

In a subsequent chat with producers, the 35-year-old Aruba native called it “crazy” that the reality TV personality was dating while still legally married.

“At first [of her relationship] it was very important to put everything on paper, but now you’re done and you don’t make any more effort? Like, come on, this is weird. Go on with your life,” he says.

Later in the clip, Tania expands on her reasoning in a confessional.

“Signing the divorce papers doesn’t make my marriage any more complete than it already is. I am emotionally and mentally divorced,” she explains. The Connecticut native and Syngin, 32, starred in Season 7 of 90 day fiance together, getting married in the season finale that aired in February 2020.

Their dating started when Tania traveled to South Africa to meet a man she was talking to on a dating app. When this romance failed to materialize, she started talking to Syngin at his bartending gig and ended up staying in the country for four months to continue their connection. The duo’s relationship was documented in more detail in season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?

Tania confirmed that she and the South Africa native broke up in October 2021. “Some of the rumors are true – #SingleLife New Season has been announced and yes I’m single, @syngin_colchester is single – we’re all single!! Now don’t all go to his DM ladies at once or he’ll never be able to sort them all out,” she wrote via Instagram at the time.

Syngin commented on the post, writing, “Good luck on your journey.”

In an Instagram post from Thursday, September 1, Tania gave her followers a glimpse of her rising star sign — and threw some shade at her ex in the process.

“For many of us a marriage partner brings property and wealth. Well my first came with 0 of 2 so hopefully my next will be 2 of 2,” she wrote .

90 Day Fiance: The Single Life premieres Monday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.
