    "A ver cuánto aguanta" would be the correct spelling.
    It means "let's see for how long she/he can tolerate/stand/put up with me"

    as for "Nueva mora" it may mean new girlfriend or boyfriend. Not sure, it depends on the country this person is from but with the context of your picture, I assume so.
    Some meanings of mora: Moor/ Blackberry

    hope it helps!

    hi there,

    Sandra was very kind, and lets hope she's right, but the comments may have a slightly more negative connotation, depending on the context.

    the first maybe... lets see how long it lasts

    the second i can relate indirectly to a crass english saying (for boys!) my new cherry, which is not the direct translation (cherry instead of blackberry), but depending on the country it could have a similar meaning which i will leave up to you to envisage.

    hope this helps
