90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days spoilers reveal a culture clash between Omar Albakkour and Avery Mills‘ mom Teri. The 24-year-old Syrian makes it very clear that his conservative views on women will not be swayed by anyone, including his future mother-in-law. Apparently, Omar wants Avery to conform to his country’s strict tradition, which Teri finds unsettling.
Fortunately, Avery Mills seems totally fine with it. The 19-year-old fully embraces her new role as a converted Muslim even if it means giving up most of what she used to do. Despite the couple’s agreement, some still find Omar too controlling. Is it something Avery should be worried about?
90 Day Fiance: Avery Mills Tries On Wedding Dresses – Omar Albakkour Tags Along
In the early premiere of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days episode 4, Avery Mills and Omar Albakkour kick off their wedding preparations. The couple will walk down the aisle in two days, months after merely talking online.
During their second day in Lebanon on 90 Day Fiance, Avery Mills goes shopping for a wedding dress with her mom Teri and fiance Omar. Initially, Teri wants the outing to be a special mother-daughter moment. So when she sees Omar tagging along, she’s a bit disappointed. “Typically, in the U.S., the grooms don’t go wedding dress shopping with their partner,” Teri explains in front of the camera. “I kind of wanted a mom and daughter thing, but that’s what she wants”.
Omar Says No-No To Form-Fitted Dress
With Omar Albakkour present, Avery Mills gets an extra helping hand in picking out the “perfect” gown. The 90 Day Fiance celeb knows she will not be able to wear the typical Western wedding dress so she opts for a more conservative Halal dress. However, her choices still don’t seem to impress Omar that much.
Despite going for a more traditional Muslim wedding outfit, Avery still doesn’t get her future husband’s approval. Apparently, Omar thinks the dress she picks is too tight for her body. “I want Avery to wear what a Muslim girl wears,” Omar adds. “It shouldn’t be super tight. It shouldn’t show the outline of her body”.
90 Day Fiance: Avery An Obedient Future Wife?
Much to Teri’s surprise, Avery Mills happily obliges to Omar Albakkour’s request of ditching a form-fitted dress. The 90 Day Fiance star even allows her fiance to pick out a gown for her. It seems like Avery Mills tries her best to really impress Omar, even if it means being told what to do and what not to do.
Eventually, Omar chooses a sparkly Halal wedding dress that is not too tight to his liking. As expected, Avery happily tries it on and declares she loves it. Is Avery Mills trying too hard to make a good impression on Omar?
Teri Not Happy With Omar’s Control Over Avery
Meanwhile, Omar Albakkour’s apparent controlling nature did not sit too well with Teri. The 90 Day Fiance star’s mom is not happy with how her future son-in-law seemingly dictates what Avery Mills wears. She notes that Avery always had the freedom to wear what she wants even before meeting him and converting to Islam.
“She’s always worn form-fitted dresses before. Why can’t she wear anything tight?”Teri asks. “If she feels pretty and she feels comfortable why wouldn’t she be allowed to wear that?”
90 Day Fiance: Teri Surprised With Daughter’s ‘Odd’ Behavior Towards Omar
Avery Mills’ behavior towards Omar Albakkour comes as a surprise to her mom Teri. Apparently, she feels like her daughter has been acting “odd” in front of her Syrian boyfriend and it’s something that bothers her.
Teri points out that the 90 Day Fiance star is not one to be dictated. “Avery was the most independent, ambitious, outgoing person you’ve ever met,” she reveals. “So to see her enjoying someone telling her what to wear or how she can be is odd for me”.
Teri also fears that Avery’s strong personality will eventually take over and change everything. “She seems happy now. But I suspect that when Avery gets tired of listening to somebody else, it may fall apart,” Teri claims, seemingly referring to Avery’s relationship with Omar.
