During Season 2, Episode 4 of The Real Housewives of DubaiCaroline opened up about her expected timeline of her marriage to Sergio Carrallo.

At Chanel Ayan's "queen" themed party, Taleen Marie pulled Caroline aside for a chat. "How long do you give this thing?" she asked the Ladies of London alum, who replied that she's always told Sergio they'll be together [for] "10 to 15 [years]."

"We are having a wonderful time now, but one day he may not want to be here," she explained in an interview. "I don't want Sergio to wake up when I'm 60 and he's 40 and have to go, 'Where's my wife?'" (Caroline and Sergio have a 19-year age gap.)

Taleen had more questions for Caroline about her relationship.

"Sergio had brought up a couple of things to [Rafael Khanoyan] that I just wanted to address to you," Taleen said. "He was saying he kind of feels disrespected by your children. Are you and Sergio okay?"

Caroline was quick to answer that, yes, she and Sergio are perfectly fine.

"We're really okay," she said. "You know, they want to push boundaries. He's not their father. He has this role that's between a father and a big brother, right? And it's very difficult. Yasmine and I have a very dry sense of humor, and I've told her the jokes I make to him aren't appropriate from her. I've spoken to her, but there's only so much I can do. Sergio also needs to understand she's a 17-year-old girl."

In a confessional, Caroline also said that she felt "taken aback" by the news — especially because it came from someone she'd just met. "I'm more upset with Sergio for discussing my private business and children with someone I'd just met," she added.

Sergio, as fans may recall, was 24 years old when he met his future wife. "He went from being a single guy without a care in the world to a father of three kids," Caroline explained. "I said to him, I don't want him to stay ever because he feels he has to. If ever he thought he made the wrong decision, the door is open."
