90 Day Fiance shows the experiences of Americans in a foreign country. The fans have claimed that a few stars are wrongly portraying the foreign lands. A lot of them have expressed an issue with the show’s representation of Jordan and other Arab countries. Let us dig deep into the matter.
90 Day Fiance: Yazan Overreacts At Brittany’s Outspoken Behavior
The reality T.V. stars Brittany and Yazan have their love story set against the backdrop of Jordan. In the latest episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, we see Yazan overreacting to Brittany’s arrival at Jordan’s airport. Yazan w as angry after seeing Brittany carrying alcohol with her. He was also disappointed with Brittany being outspoken and hugging the male crew member. Brittany’s refusal to accept the norms of Yazan’s culture caused conflict between the couple.
According to Yazan, the women in Jordan prefer to stay home and care for the family. They always wear traditional Muslim coverings and don’t drink alcohol. However, Brittany’s outward sex appeal outraged Yazan. He went away from the airport, leaving dumbstruck Brittany behind.
90 Day Fiance: A Reddit User Explains That Show Is Wrongly Portraying Jordan
After this, a Reddit user expressed that the show is misrepresenting Jordan. He said that Jordan is instead an open-minded land having a bustling nightlife. He further explained that Yazan’s family is likely to have rules because of their personal religious beliefs. However, this does not apply to the whole of Jordan. The user added: “I know it’s the editing and makes good T.V.— Just remember, there is more than meets the eye.”
Jordan Is A Progressive Country, Has A bustling Nightlife Too
Jordan is a progressive and modern country. It doesn’t adhere to strict rules and regulations, such as those described by the show. Wearing shorts is pretty much acceptable. However, women do follow the Islamic code of conduct. Although Lebanon is conservative, Beirut differs from other areas. The city offers an active nightlife influenced by Western standards. The two countries are not as flexible and open-minded as the U.S. However, it is wrong to draw unhealthy pictures of any country.
In 90 Day Fiance, we have seen cultural differences posing a significant challenge for the couples. American partners express their distaste and discomfort in meshing well with their partner’s lifestyle. It would be interesting to see if Brittany would be able to adjust to Yazan’s culture through all this.
