The 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? couples this week were in the thick of their issues, and they were either able to make their situations better, come to a standstill, or backslide.

Issues with green cards, moving, interpersonal relationships with family, and momentous decisions were the main themes of this episode.

The couples struggled with doing the right things for themselves verses making their partner happy with their decisions.

Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya were introduced to the show this week and Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva didn’t appear this episode.

Big decisions were made on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? this week

Angela Deem’s feelings about her upcoming surgery were highlighted this week, as well as her discussion with Michael Ilesanmi where she told him about her breast reduction surgery. Michael was very unhappy about the prospect of Angela having smaller breasts but also understands that it is more of a health issue.

Angela worked hard to put seeds of jealousy in Michael’s head because she said she likes to mess with him, but Michael voiced his concerns about it to his brother.

Kalani Faagata’s sister, Kolini, arrived in Utah to stay with the family for a few months. She thought Asuelu Pulaa’s attempts at being a better person were suspicious and noted that he’s acted nicer in the past only to flip a switch and revert back to having fits.

Kolini made it clear to her sister and Asuelu that their desire to buy a house together is foolish because their marriage is still rocky and divorce gets brought up a lot. Kolini fears that Asuelu wants his own place so that he doesn’t have anyone around to hold him accountable. However, Kalani and Asuelu still asserted that buying a house is their plan and they think it will help their marriage.
