90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days rolls out tonight with Avery Mills and fiance Omar Albakkour as one of the more interesting couples who face plenty of obstacles. Avery describes her past-self as “an all American girl”. Until one day she decided her way of life wasn’t working for her.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – American Avery Mills Wonders if Omar Albakkour Made a Mistake?

At 18-years-old this 90 Day Fiance new cast member left the Christian faith behind her to become a follower of Islam. Now at 19, Avery Mills follows the faith right down to the appropriate clothing for a woman. This didn’t please her Christian family and it especially didn’t go over well once she joined a Muslim dating app. That’s where she met and fell in love with her man from the other side of the world.

When Avery Mills first met Omar Albakkour on the dating app his profile said that he’s from America. Come to find out he is not. Avery seems to give Omar Albakkour the benefit of the doubt on camera during her 90 Day Fiance interview. She said that she’s not sure how Omar ended up listing America as his home.

She also said it could be a mistake of some kind. Below Avery Mills shares photos of what her clothing looks like today, six months after converting to Islam. She also shared photos of how she looked before she joined her new religion.

Complete Change for Avery

Syria is one of the countries under a travel ban by the US. People from that country can’t travel to the US, Avery said on the 90 Day Fiance clip. So since Omar couldn’t travel to the US and apparently traveling to Omar’s war-torn country was risky, they compromised. The two met in Lebanon.

This trip will decide if the love shared by Omar Albakkour and Avery Mills is worth Avery moving to Syria, according to the previews. Since converting to the religion six-months ago, Avery has followed the customs indicated for women. Fans will see this on 90 Day Fiance in the episodes with Avery and Omar.

Her mode of dress changed completely. She was the homecoming queen not once but twice. Avery also dressed as the traditional teenage girl with shorts, mini dresses, and sleeveless shirts. Today she covers everything. The only skin she’ll leave exposed to the outside world is her face and hands. She constantly covers her hair with a hat no matter what the weather forecast said.

90 Day Fiance: Far From Columbus Ohio

It seems the Columbus, Ohio, native faces a major decision during this 90 Day Fiance season. Will she leave her friends, family, and the safety of the US to live as Omar’s bride in the unstable country of Syria? From what Avery Mills describes on the preview clip she’s made quite the transformation for her new religion.

Omar Albakkour studies to become a dentist in a Syrian college. So his career future looks bright as opposed to some of the previous seasons of 90 Day Fiance where some potential spouses showed up with not too much enthusiasm for employment.

Tune into TLC Sunday Night for the premiere of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days at 8 pm ET.
