’90 Day Fiancé’: Is Sumit’s Lost Passport the Perfect Excuse to Postpone Marriage to Jenny?
On the premiere episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, Jenny’s visa is close to expiring. She is facing going back to America empty-handed, broke, and without a ring. Some fans think that Sumit Singh losing his passport could be the perfect excuse so that Jenny would have no choice but to go back to America. Does Sumit really want to marry Jenny or is he just playing with her?
Jenny’s visa is set to expire and she will have to go back to America
Sumit and Jenny met for the first time in 2013 when she visited India. Three trips later, Jenny is hoping to stay there forever as a citizen after marrying Sumit. Audiences met Jenny and Sumit in seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, where Jenny sold everything and moved to India. Jenny found out that Sumit was harboring a huge secret — he was already married. Consequently, she left for America again.
In season 3, Jenny is back in India living with Sumit. Jenny came on a 6-month tourist visa and has been able to extend it due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) travel restrictions. After three times, Jenny is shocked to see that the 4th time has been denied. Sumit reads the email: “Non-resident tourist service has been closed.” Sumit was worried because she’s “already overstayed a hundred and twenty days in India.” Jenny’s frustrated that Sumit won’t marry her and now she’s going to have to leave the country immediately.
Sumit lost his passport
Whether it be back to America or to a third country, Jenny will have to leave in order to come back. That’s when Sumit suggests leaving for Nepal. He tells Jenny, “Nepal’s border is open. So, we can stay in there for couple of months or three months and wait for the borders to unlock.”
That’s when Sumit decides to call a travel agent to find out more information about a possible trip to Nepal. The agent explains, “At present, all the Nepal border is closed.” A slight glimmer of hope appeared when the agent said that Thailand or Bali may be viable options. Sumit drops the bombshell that he’s lost his passport. According to Sumit, his ex-wife’s parents took it with them. The agent explains that there is no other country that Indian citizens can go travel to without a passport.
Is the lost passport an excuse for Sumit to postpone marrying Jenny?
Now that the option of meeting in a third country like Thailand or Bali is out of the question, Jenny’s only option is to go back to America. That is unless Sumit decides he’s going to marry Jenny immediately, going contrary to what his family wants. However, if she leaves, there’s no telling when she would be able to return.
While Sumit does express concern that Jenny leaving to America means possibly never seeing her again, some fans think he’s relieved. Earlier in the episode, Sumit’s friend and astrologer, Khalid, told Sumit and Jenny that they should hold off on marriage as long as possible to avoid fighting. However, it seems that Sumit taking his time marrying Jenny is actually the cause of all the fighting.
Sumit is now facing a decision, either defy his family and marry Jenny, or risk losing her by letting her go back to America. In a dramatic chair kicking exit, Jenny tells Sumit that if she goes back to America, she will never come back. She tells Sumit that she’s going to book her flight and leave. Now that the ball is in Sumit’s court, he has a very weighty decision to make.
