‘90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Recap: Poor Sumit Singh Asks For A Blessing and Gets Dragged By His Parents
In this 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way recap, Sumit Singh was hoping to go ahead with a ring ceremony announcing his plans to wed his 60-something girlfriend Jenny Slatten.

Jenny whips up some traditional Indian fare to try and sweeten the deal. The parents arrive and Jenny bows, and says “namaste”.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way the tension in the air is thick as Sumit Singh pleads his case for marrying much older love Jenny Slatten. But his parents drag her through the mud and say over their dead bodies. The disgust was real and even Jenny could tell things were going badly by his mother’s angry face and demeanor. They say he can and should do better. They call her old and tell him to go find another oldie maybe one that’s 100. Ouch.
Jenny sits looking confused but it’s clear these people despise her. And even suggest they take Sumit home with them. They say when people see him and the geriatric American they assume Sumit’s parents have failed. And point out Sumit’s gray hair saying he’s caught “old age” from Jenny. Sumit falls to his knees in a dramatic display lashing out about how he was dying and they did nothing to help him. Jenny walks out saying she can’t do this to his family. Wow will this finally be the end?
