90 Day Fiance couple Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier tried to meet Armando’s family. Now, his confidence about living as an out gay man in Mexico takes another hit.

90 Day Fiance: Someone Calls Kenneth Niedermeier & Armando Rubio Awful Anti-Gay Slur
TLC’s Kenneth Niedermeier and Armando Rubio were in good spirits on The Other Way since Kenny proposed. So, when Armando took Kenneth and his daughters to see the “real Mexico,” it should have been a fun time. They went to a taco stand, and everyone had a great night. Everything was fine until Armando Rubio decided to show Kenneth a little PDA, and a passerby didn’t like it on 90 Day Fiance.
The stranger yelled a homophobic slur at the two of them. Although Kenneth brushed it off, Armando’s self-esteem took a major hit. He made great strides on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. But now, he’s taken two steps back. Will he ever be comfortable showing affection in public in his homeland? And this isn’t the only hit this fan-fave pair takes in the coming days.

Armando’s already troubled because of the hateful encounter out in public, shown on The Other Way. And now, Armando Rubio brings Kenneth Niedermeier to meet his family. His father tries to show support of their 90 Day Fiance relationship. Even though Armando is nervous, he and Kenneth make the trip to offer an olive branch to his father.
But, when they arrive, it seems like his dad doesn’t want to see them. “He doesn’t want to come out or what?” 90 Day Fiance‘s Armando Rubio asks his mother, who opens the door. “I don’t know if he’s coming out,” she says. He says, “I’m worried about my dad. I just feel like he’s trying to avoid us.” Then, the door shuts in Armando’s face – along with Kenneth Niedermeier’s.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way – Pair Can’t Marry in Mexico?
If his father’s rejection isn’t hard enough, Armando Rubio and fiance Kenneth Niedermeier’s struggles only get worse soon. The two lovebirds go for their marriage license, but things look bad. The marriage official tells them, “We have had several same-sex marriages here,” but then says it’s a “negative answer to them on their plan to marry.
Clearly, Kenneth and Armando Rubio aren’t happy with the answer. Kenneth Niedermeier says it’s “very disappointing” and feels like “they’re pretty much kicking you in the teeth.” If Kenny can’t marry Armando, it will be challenging for him to stay in Mexico. Why? Mexico sets much stricter immigration laws than the United States. So, Kenneth might have to go to extremes to stay if they can’t get hitched.
