Sumit Singh wants wife, Jenny Slatten’s daughter, Christina, to keep her opinions to herself. 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? featured Christina’s arrival in India during Sunday’s episode, and it wasn’t long before she was asking pointed questions about her mother’s unconventional marriage. Sumit’s parents and their decision to disown their son for marrying a woman 30 years his senior, came up as a topic of conversation during the visit.   

“They are not as comfortable as before when we were living together without marriage,” Sumit, 33, explained.

“Do you think his mom will ever accept you?” Christina asked. 

“No. She is set in her ways, dammit,” Jenny, 63, responded.

Jenny mimicked her mother-in-law, declaring — “‘This is the culture. This is India. And I see it no other way. I’m not accepting this. I will never accept this and Jenny needs to go back to America.’”

Christina also learned that Sumit’s family might take him back one day, but that her mother would never be a part of the package.

“You know, my mom is out here by herself, so I do want her to feel accepted, and the only way that she can really do that is by you [Sumit] 100 percent holding her up — as opposed to just letting it happen and saying ‘Oh, that’s just the family. That’s how they are and that’s what they do,'” Christina said.

She added, “It’s not right. It’s disrespectful.”

Jenny had already floated the idea of moving back to America and Christina agreed with her mother’s assessment, later in the episode.

“At this point, it should be, ‘If you don’t like my relationship and you don’t want my wife a part of it, then I can’t be a part of the family. This is my wife, this is who I love, and if you can’t accept it, then you don’t accept me,'” she said, speaking from Sumit’s perspective.

In a previous episode, Jenny spoke about her experience living in India after Sumit encouraged her to tackle grocery shopping alone.

“Even though I’ve lived here for three years, it’s intimidating for me as a white woman to be out by myself, trying to go to the market, being stared at a lot,” she said. “I hope Sumit doesn’t expect me to do this every day, because I can’t do that.”

Sumit pointed out that the family discussion only highlighted the marital culture clash. He also let it be known that he wanted Christina to back off.

“In India, we pay more attention toward the parents,” he said. “The family is a complete family as a unit. So, until Christina is in my situation, she cannot understand what I’m dealing with, and she needs to stay out of the situation.”

90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? airs Sundays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
