’90 Day Fiancé’ Sneak Peek: Kalani Tells Asuelu That Therapy Is the ‘Last Option’
On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Kalani Faagata is dealing with quite a lot. During a trip to Washington to visit her husband Asuelu Pulaa’s family, things get extremely dramatic. When Asuelu’s family requests $1,000 and they’re only offered $100, an argument ensues.
Kalani attempts to speak with Asuelu’s mother, Lesina, and his sister, Tammy, about matters, but it leads to an explosive fight. When Kalani relays the events to her husband, it leads to yet another fight between them.
In the upcoming episode, Kalani tells Asuelu that therapy is the “last option” for them as a couple. Read on to learn more.
Kalani admits she doesn’t want to be married anymore
After fighting with Asuelu, Kalani talks to her sister, Kolini, about matters. However, Asuelu overhears the conversation, which leads to a continued fight that doesn’t even end until Asuelu up and leaves to go to his family’s house. Kalani and her sister stay in a hotel, but Asuelu arrives there later on with balloons and flowers, since the next day is Valentine’s Day.
However, the gesture only goes so far, as the trip has been drama-filled from the start. They head off to the airport, and when they arrive, Kalani throws out the gifts before getting on the plane. She also admits to producers that she doesn’t want to be married anymore.
“When Asuelu came back yesterday, I let him in because when I opened the door, he was like on one knee with roses and balloons and saying that he was sorry and that he loved me,” Kalani tells the cameras. “And then when I let him in, we restarted fighting again, so… I mean I’m grateful he showed up and he’s going to help me get home, but other than that, I need a f****** break. I’m tired and I’m emotionally exhausted, and I need to sleep. And I just need to go home and figure things out so… I don’t know. I just want to be done.”
Producers ask what she means by being done, and she says, “I don’t want to be married anymore.”
Kalani tells Asuelu that therapy is the ‘last option’
Back home in Utah a week after the trip, Kalani and Asuelu sit down outside and discuss where they go from here, since they’ve been avoiding having the conversation.
“I feel like I’ve tried my hardest with this marriage, and I’m doing everything I can to fix it,” Kalani tells the cameras. “I do feel like therapy has become an ultimatum now, and he’s gonna have to go with me, and I know I have a lot of issues too I need to work out. And he does too. So like this is it, this has to be it because I can’t keep living like this. It’s insane.”
Kalani asks how things are with his family, and he says they’re, “OK.”
Next, Kalani mentions the children, and that she wants them to see a “healthy relationship.” “I think it was easy for us to avoid our issues for so long because Oliver was little, but he’s getting older,” Kalani tells her husband. “Kennedy’s getting older. I want them to see like a healthy relationship. I just don’t want them to see all of this craziness.”
Asuelu asks how bad things really are between them, and Kalani says, “If we keep continuing on like this, I don’t think that we’re going to stay married. I think that we need to go to therapy so that we can start making healthy steps in our relationship because this just isn’t working.”
However, Asuelu has some stipulations, since he wants a male Samoan therapist, so he can speak his own language and talk with someone who understands where he grew up. Kalani says they can get a translator, and Asuelu says, “OK.” He tells producers that he wants to fix things, which is a step in the right direction.
Asuelu asks Kalani if she thinks therapy is the “last option,” and she says, “Therapy is the last option. I can’t keep living like this.”
It sounds like Kalani and Asuelu will be going to therapy to work through their issues. We’ll see what happens with their relationship from here as they make steps towards a better future together.
