At some point they discussed getting married, but Jacob is afraid because it was illegal for Wizards to marry No-Maj's. She therefore puts Jacob under a love spell. Later, she and Jacob meet Newt in London where Newt removes the spell. She and Jacob argue where she calls Jacob a coward and her legilimncy tells her Jacob wanted to call her crazy.
She travels to Paris and tries to find Tina in the French Ministry of Magic. She is unable to find her and is left alone until Vinda Rosier finds her and brings her to Grindelwald. Grindelwald explains to her that when he will take over the Wizarding World, he will allow wizard-No-Maj Marriage.
