Their relationship is multi-faceted and highly complicated, prohibiting them from pursuing a consistent relationship. Their divergences with regard to race, religion and family backgrounds, produce an abundance of challenges during their progression in Las Echinas. Due to Nadia's heavily religious and strict background, her father, Yusuf, places strenuous importance on the transcendence of these traditional values, causing her relationship with Guzman to be short-lived. Despite all this, Guzman and Nadia continue to sustain a close friendship, where they aided each other in becoming the best versions of themselves - a heartwarming gesture that blossomed to create a beautiful yet grim relationship.
In the beginning of Season 1, Guzmán and Lu are already a couple. Lu challenges Guzmán to seduce and humiliate Nadia in an attempt to prevent her from revealing to Azucena that Lu and Guzmán hooked up in the Las Encinas changing room. However, Nadia and Guzmán slowly develop genuine feelings for each other.
In "59 hours missing", Guzmán and Nadia hook up. Later, Guzmán breaks up with Lu to prove his feelings for Nadia. After breaking up with Lu, Guzmán visits Nadia in Frutería Shanaa to reveal the news in hopes of starting a relationship with her. However, Nadia explains that a relationship would be too difficult due to their different religions and the views of Nadia's parents.
In Season 3, Nadia meets Malick who she briefly dates. Nadia doesn't have strong feelings for Malick, but feels that he would be a more convenient option as he is also Muslim and her father, Yusef, approves of him. At a party, Nadia and Guzmán both admit that they love each other, but Nadia explains that love isn't enough for them to be together.
In "Polo", Nadia realizes that she doesn't want to live a life designed by her parents anymore. Before leaving Spain to study at Columbia University, she and Guzmán reconnect romantically and Nadia promises she would come back for him, while Guzmán promises he will wait for her to return.
