’90 Day Fiancé’: Syngin Colchester Admits During the Tell All That If He and Tania Maduro Hadn’t Gotten Married, They Would Have Broken Up
In season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Syngin Colchester and Tania Maduro have been struggling to keep their marriage afloat. After traveling to South Africa together after Syngin’s brother lands in the hospital, they end up getting into a major blow up in front of both Syngin’s family and his friends on two separate occasions.
When we last saw the couple, they were headed back to the United States together. On the virtual Tell All, the couple is seated side by side, clearly still together. But there are also issues still brewing, and the couple is trying to work through things.
Syngin Colchester and Tania Maduro still don’t see ‘eye to eye’ on the future
On the second part of the Tell All, the host, Shaun Robinson, asks Syngin if he’s working, and he says he’s working full-time as a server. He’s trying to work as much as he can. He adds that his “main job is working on Tania’s nerves.”
Syngin says that he and Tania have had “ups and downs.” Tania admits there are a lot of issues. Shaun asks what the “main source” of conflict is between the couple, and Syngin pins down “miscommunication” as the main thing. He admits they don’t see “eye to eye” on things, and he mentions their future.
“Yeah, you have someone who’s like dreamed of a future, and someone who’s never thought of the future,” Tania says. “How do you plan a future?”
The pandemic gets brought up, and Syngin says it’s definitely added “pressure” to things. Tania details that their arguing became “super toxic.”
Is the couple thinking about divorce?
Colt Johnson asks if they would say they have a “healthy marriage,” and Syngin admits that they don’t. “I would not say that we have a healthy marriage,” Syngin reveals. “But you know, I think it’s just really figuring out if we are meant to be or if our future aligns and stuff.”
Shaun asks if they’re talking about divorce, but she doesn’t get a clear answer. “We noticed that we were having issues, we were having struggling communicating, because one of us ends up getting super-ego, and it’s like, ‘Well this is how I think of it. And this is how it needs to be and it’s…no,’” Tania says. Syngin admits they can both be “hard-headed.”
Drinking seems to still be a problem in their relationship, and that becomes a topic of conversation as well. Then Syngin’s friends and former roommates, Andrew and James, get brought into the conversation. They say they don’t think Syngin has a drinking problem. Colt asks if Syngin would give up drinking to save his marriage, and he says “No.”
“So, to be very honest, you know, I will not be giving up drinking probably my whole entire life,” Syngin explains. “I enjoy a cold beer. I enjoy the beverage. I enjoy the time with it. And if that bugs her, that just means I must get somebody who doesn’t say I’m an alcoholic.”
Andrew and James laugh hysterically at that comment. Syngin does clarify that he doesn’t love drinking more than Tania, and says he loves her “the most.”
Syngin admits that if they never got married, they would have broken up
Shaun then goes on to ask Syngin if they had not gotten married, where their relationship would be. “I think if we never got married, I think we would have been broken up, yeah,” Syngin admits. “But for us as well, it’s also about sorting this out as quick as possible, you know? We also don’t want to waste a lot of time, you know, trying to work on the relationship over two years and you’re still struggling.”
Syngin admits he would “almost say another year” as a timeline of figuring out if things are going to work between them. Tania goes on to say that if in six months things are going great, they’ll keep things going. But if they’re worse off then before, then “it’s time to reevaluate.”
It sounds like the couple is just barely making it at this point. Will their relationship survive? Only time will tell.
