She not only purchases lavish presents for Ryan but she supports him and his family in Belize. As of now, Ryan does not appear to be employed.

There are so many red flags in their relationship, but that doesn’t stop Stephanie from trying to get Ryan to the United States. She believes once Ryan moves in with her in Michigan, he will mature.

Stephanie’s family and friends are worried about her, too. They fear Ryan is only using her for financial support and the opportunity to move to the United States.

Fans are in for one wild ride with Ryan and Stephanie. These two have a lot of issues to work out. Their rocky relationship will no doubt help make 90 Day Fiance Season 8 an entertaining one.

90 Day Fiance airs Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.
