Louis and Aya are now legally married -- and as madly in love as ever.
DCL asked Louis and Aya some questions about the first few months of their marriage. They open up about their daily lives and explain what they have in store for the future in this exclusive interview.

Q: What is the most surprising thing you've learned about your spouse now that you're married and living together?

A: We had been together almost one and a half years when we finally moved in together. We knew the good and the bad about each other, and nothing has changed except that we are legally married now.

Q: Did you take a honeymoon? If so, where?

A: Not yet. We are waiting to take care of more important things first, like Aya's Adjustment of Status.

Q: Aya, what is a typical day like for you?

A: I spend time with my husband and clean the house. It has been so cold and miserable out lately that we've been spending a lot of time indoors.

Q: Another question for Aya. Now that you're married, will you be able to travel back home to see your family? Or will they come visit you?

A: I will be able to travel back as soon as the Adjustment of Status is processed. There are no plans for them to visit the United States.

Q: Louis, do you still get questions about green cards or mail order brides? How do you deal with this kind of criticism?

A: Tonya [Louis' ex-wife] was the only person who ever asked me a question about mail order brides, and since then, she has gotten to know and love Aya. She sees that our love is real.

Q: What are your goals for the first year of marriage?

A: We are going to get the Adjustment of Status filed and find Aya a job -- she wants to work. Louis is still working on getting through school so that he can find a better job one day.

Q: Where do you see yourselves in five years?

A: Happily married with money in the bank and everything we need -- hopefully, a handful of things we want.

Q: What advice would you give to other couples who are applying for K-1 visas and planning weddings in 90 days?

A: Trust yourselves and don't worry about what anyone has to say.

Q: Aya, what has been the biggest cultural adjustment you've made now that you're living in the U.S.?

A: Not being able to go outside and catch public transportation. Also, the weather being so cold is a big adjustment.

Q: What final piece of advice would you give other couples for their first year of marriage?

A: Love each other and never stop remembering why you fell in love, no matter how hard it may seem.
