Brittany proposed a major reorganization of plans when it comes to her relationship with her fiancé, Yazan, on Sunday’s season finale. 90-day fiancé: the other way.
At the beginning of the episode, Brittany was still processing the bomb that Yazan’s brother Obida told her, which was that Yazan’s family members wanted to kill him for having a relationship with her because they saw his past racy posts on social media. and assumed that she and Yazan were challenging the beliefs of Islam. Yazan hadn’t told her the dire consequences he was facing for choosing to stay with her, like his father kicking him out of the house and firing him, and he wanted to move on with their marriage. He also explained that the next step would be that his father would have to sit down with other chiefs of his tribe, and they would come to a verdict on his marriage.
“It’s really crazy to think that it is this giant court that decides the fate of Yazan and me,” said Brittany. “I don’t understand why they are taking it so far. I don’t understand why they make decisions that have nothing to do with them or their well-being. It’s definitely difficult because there are – we’re not doing anything wrong.”
“Never in a million years did I think I would find myself in this situation,” he added. “[Yazan] It really got us into trouble without making me aware of the risks that we were basically facing. I feel completely overwhelmed and I don’t know what to do. “
As for Yazan, he just wanted to make sure Brittany married him for the right reasons.
“When it comes to your decision to get married, I want this to come purely from your heart,” he told her through a translator. “So I want you to say, ‘Yes, we want to get married because I love you, not because you are in danger if I decide otherwise.’
Later, Brittany suggested to Yazan that instead of moving to Jordan to be with him, she wanted him to move to the United States as the situation in their country was not good for them.
“I don’t think Jordan is the best place for either of us, in that case. It’s too dangerous,” he said. “I know we talked, like, before I moved here, about the possibility of you moving to America, and I was really against it. But, you know, now, after learning everything, I think we better go there.”
Brittany explained to the cameras: “I didn’t want to bring Yazan to the US. Because I wanted to make sure his intentions were pure and I didn’t want it to be at my expense. But I know this is something we really need to do if our relationship goes keep going “.
Yazan said she didn’t know how to feel about Brittany’s suggestion, because moving to America was never her dream.
“I never thought of going there,” he said. “I don’t know the place. I hope I’m here in Jordan, but if you want to go, I’m thinking, I want to be with you.”
Brittany replied, “Jordan just isn’t working. If it’s going to be dangerous, I think it’s time to go … I have to do a lot of research on visas and immigration, and it’s quite expensive.”
Brittany admitted to the cameras that she was not really ready to marry Yazan at this point.
“From what I know, the best option for us is the K-1 visa,” he said. “I’m not really ready to marry Yazan right now, but maybe when I finish the whole visa process, I’m ready to marry him. I really don’t know how long the visa will take.”
Meanwhile, Yazan was concerned that Brittany would change her mind about him if they were separated while they waited for their visa to be approved. Brittany acknowledged that she couldn’t give him a guarantee.
“I worry that if she leaves, over time, her feelings for me will go away,” he said. “We have a saying in Jordan, ‘If you are far from the eyes, you are far from the heart.’
Brittany finally decided to leave Jordan to begin the K-1 visa process before the borders were closed due to the coronavirus. Before leaving, she met with Obida, who told her that she would do whatever she could to convince her parents that allowing Yazan to move to the United States was a good decision and that she would keep her brother safe while she was gone. Brittany and Yazan then shared an emotional goodbye at the airport, with Yazan still nervous that Brittany would decide to leave after returning to Florida.
As for Brittany, she had a lot to think about.
“When I moved to Jordan, I had no idea what I was getting into,” he reflected. “I love Yazan, but I don’t know if this is the right relationship for me, and I don’t know if this is the right relationship for him. Yazan really has a lot to lose if he marries me. A lot that we both have to think about.”
ET spoke to Brittany earlier this month, saying that she was sometimes unfairly portrayed as selfish during the intense season, and that Yazan didn’t “value” her family and religion as much as viewers thought. He also said that Yazan actually has a history of having an intense level of devotion to all the women he dates.
“Honestly, I feel like Yazan is like that with any woman he loves, you know what I mean?” she said about the extreme sacrifices he was willing to make for her. “He was like that with his ex-girlfriend. He was hooked on her, he really loved her. [When] he is with me, he really loves me, he wants to make a new life with me, he also wanted to make a new life with his ex. I don’t think he values his family and religion as much as people think he does. “
“I think, you know, he really wants to have a different kind of life with me, and he just has so much pressure from his family that sometimes he is not able to fulfill the promises he made to me because the pressure increases. Him, and he ends up putting pressure on me. for it to change and that’s not fair, “he continued. “I think he really wants to live a life with me. I think he wants to have that westernized lifestyle. And he loves me, we get along really well, we laugh together, we have a lot of fun, we hang out together, we do everything together, and that’s what people don’t see. We are best friends, after all this religion thing, this culture thing, all the pressures that family and friends put on you. If I didn’t have that, I would be a totally different person. It’s like if I hid those things, and that’s what people don’t see. “
