Tom Brooks explained that he had been dating his girlfriend Mariah Fineman for over a year, and he wanted to propose. Their distance strained their relationship since Mariah lives in Las Vegas.

Tom prepared to ask Mariah to marry him by questioning how he would fit into her life with her two high school-age sons, and she said they would make it work if he moved to Las Vegas.

When Tom popped the question, Mariah denied him. In a private interview, she said it’s because her kids are a priority. Tom was upset but still wanted to continue the relationship.

Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa were still living in Utah, although they were planning on moving back to California to join the rest of Kalani’s family.

Kalani explained privately that divorce is still on the table for them because Asuelu was not stepping up as a father and husband in the way she wanted.

When Kalani confronted Asuelu, he didn’t understand why Kalani was upset and ended up getting annoyed by the conversation and walking away.

Julia and Brandon revealed they thought their apartment was too small and had five months to figure out their next move. When they visited Brandon’s dad Ron at their farm, Ron suggested that Brandon and Julia take it over, and he and his wife, Betty, would move to their other property.

Julia and Brandon seemed intrigued, although Julia had a lot of conditions to say yes. Later on, they brought it up to Betty, who was taken aback by the suggestion and felt pressured to relent. They all agreed to take some time to decide.

90 Day Diaries airs on Mondays at 9/8c on TLC and Discovery+.
