Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Season 2 return of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Read at your own risk!
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season 2 is headed back to TLC, which means the return of all the drama it had along with it. There's plenty to unravel for each couple, especially in the case with Brittany Banks and Yazan Abo Horira. It's a wonder the two didn't split in the first half of Season 2, especially after the differences regarding what was expected of Brittany when she moved to Jordan.
Things went south for Brittany and Yazan's relationship essentially from the moment when she got off the plane, and really never recovered from there. 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way showed it was due to Brittany's unwillingness to adapt to Jordanian ways and Muslim customs, but Brittany is now alleging via Instagram comment that they left out the part where Yazan led her to believe that living her life the way she wanted would be okay.
I feel like it's [sic] so many context clues in the show that shows that. A woman like me isn't going to up and move to a country like that unless the person I'm dating can accept me as the person I am and the enviornment permits. He made me feel like it was ok and then when I got there he switched up on me. Do y'all miss the parts on TV where he tells me one thing and tells his parents another and then gives me a random ultimatum because of the lies he told his parents? I'm tired of being attacked in this when he knew exactly who I was when he pursued me and still does. Jordan culture does not prohibit this. His particular family does not like it but I do not live to please them.
Brittany Banks states in what may be some new information that he led her to believe she would not be forced to change if she came to live in Jordan. As she mentioned above, a lot of what she was doing was not explicitly illegal in Jordan, but rather things deemed unacceptable by Yazan Abo Horira's strict Muslim family. If Yazan had led her to believe he would have no problem with her lifestyle once she arrived, it made sense that she would come to Jordan to be with him.
As 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way viewers saw though, that wasn't the case. Yazan frequently told his parents that Brittany Banks would convert to Islam, and at one point told her she had to do so before their wedding their upcoming weekend. It seemed like maybe Yazan thought he could convince Brittany to accept his family and their customs a bit faster, but obviously, that didn't work out.
This isn't to say that Brittany Banks is entirely innocent either, because she knew Yazan Abo Horira wanted to get married, and that was impossible while she was in Jordan. Brittany had no proof of a divorce from her previous marriage because she hadn't gotten divorced yet but didn't disclose that information to Yazan or his family. It will be interesting to see how the rest of this relationship plays out when 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way returns, and why exactly Brittany would return to Jordan after that previous experience.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way returns to TLC on Sunday, October 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the franchise, and for the latest happening in television and movie news.
