Yazan and Brittany have had a dramatic journey so far on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Their biggest issues seem to stem from their drastic cultural differences. In Sunday’s upcoming episode, Yazan’s father puts his foot down when it comes to his son’s relationship with Brittany.
Yazan’s parents wanted Yazan and Brittany to get married quickly
Yazan’s parents have been expressing their desire for Yazan and Brittany to get married since early on in their relationship. Per their religious beliefs, Brittany and Yazan aren’t supposed to be living together, or even together at all, until they’re married.
In an early visit, Brittany told Yazan’s parents she was waiting to get married until her father could be present. But the real reason they had to wait was because Brittany wasn’t officially divorced from her ex.
Yazan’s parents have also made it clear from the beginning how important it is to them that Brittany convert to Islam. Brittany has said she’ll only convert if she feels it’s what she really wants to do. She doesn’t want to start practicing a new religion for her partner of her partner’s family.
Yazan’s parents no longer approve of Brittany
While Brittany went back to Chicago to complete her divorce paperwork, a lot changed between Yazan and his family. In Sunday’s episode, we see Yazan tell his friend Mohammed that his parents no longer give them their blessing. Apparently, they changed their minds after seeing Brittany’s social media.
“After Brittany left, I sat down with my father,” Yazan tells Mohammed. “We sat down and he started talking about Brittany. He said he is not accepting of the whole marriage. He doesn’t want it. He started asking about social media.”
Yazan says his relatives sent his parents revealing photos that Brittany had posted to social media.
“Those are old pictures, Mohammed,” said Yazan. “He started telling me that she’s playing with me, she doesn’t want to marry me. They feel that she is just lying to me.”
Yazan’s dad kicks him out
Despite Yazan’s effort to defend Brittany, his father said if he wanted to go ahead and marry without their approval, he would be kicked out of the house and also lose his job at the fish market.
“I spent the first night at my uncle’s. After that, I had to stay on the street for two days,” he said. “Then I rented an apartment and looked for work. I don’t talk to anyone. I spend time alone. I swear, Mohammed, this has been the most difficult, truly the most difficult time I’ve been through.”
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on TLC.
