90 Day Fiance cast members who fall in love with people from another culture are tasked with trying to understand their partner’s customs and idiosyncrasies to make their relationship work better.
There have been some who tried to assimilate to their partner’s culture or who have done their best to be patient with the differences in opinions and traditions that tend to come up.
On Reddit, a thread was made to discuss the cast members who critics think have made the best efforts to understand their partner’s culture.
The 90 Day viewers in the discussion were trying to decide who in the franchise made the strongest attempts at making their partners feel more comfortable by researching and respecting their partner’s different perspectives.
90 Day Fiance viewers discussed which stars have tried to be more culturally aware of their partners
A Reddit thread was started with the subject, “Who is the most culturally competent 90 day character?”
The originator explained their views. They said offered two suggestions, “David [Toborowsky] – Love him or hate him, he attempts to speak Thai and was accepting of the dowry requirements for traditional Isaan marriage – and despite living in America seems to making good on those debts, at least.”
And the other candidate, “Avery [Mills] – Despite her young age, she seems to have researched both her new religion and the particular customs of her Syrian husband and shows them a refreshing level of respect. She is the anti-Nicole/Rabegguh/Laura.”
Other 90 Day critics weighed in and many agreed that David and Avery were a good choice.
One person also added Kyle Huckabee from Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance because he, “also lived in Thailand with her and tried to learn more about her culture as well.”
Someone else seconded the Kyle choice and added, “I did like that Kyle found Noon a nice temple for them to get married in too.”
