’90 Day Fiancé’: Zied Doesn’t Want to Move In With Micah, and the Feeling’s Mutual
Zied Hakimi is coming to America on a K-1 visa to marry his fiancé, Rebecca Parrot, on season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé. When he arrives, the couple plans to live with Rebecca’s daughter, Tiffany, and her fiancé, Micah. But Zied isn’t thrilled about the living arrangement, and neither is Micah.
Rebecca and Zied must get married within 90 days of his arrival
After meeting 27-year-old Zied online, Rebecca flew to Tunisia to meet him. The couple spent three weeks together, and by the end of the visit, the two were engaged. Rebecca came back to America and applied for Zied’s K-1 visa.
As seen on the season premiere of 90 Day Fiancé, Zied’s visa was approved. So when he arrives in the U.S., he’ll have 90 days to marry Rebecca.
But the two will have to wait until Zied can find work. As Rebecca explained on the last season of 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, it will take time for Zied’s work papers to come in.
“Honestly, the biggest thing that worries me is that Zied can’t work for several months until he gets his work permit,” she said. “And he’s going to school for HVAC repair. But I think his expectations are a little unrealistic.”
The ’90 Day Fiancé’ couple will live with Tiffany and Micah
When Zied comes to the United States, he and Rebecca will be moving in with Tiffany and Micah. According to Rebecca, she spent a lot of her earnings on Zied’s immigration fees. And she’s planning on living with Tiffany until she has enough saved to move out.
“Currently, I have an apartment, but the lease is coming up soon,” Rebecca told 90 Day Fiancé producers. “I’ve just been so busy with work that I haven’t found something for Zied and I. Tiffany and Micah had space and offered to let us stay here with them.”
“Plus the process of bringing someone over on the K-1 visa, it’s not cheap,” she added. “So far, I probably have $15,000 or $20,000 invested. So, of course, living with Tiffany and Micah will help financially.”
Micah and Zied aren’t thrilled with the idea of living together
Tiffany and her husband Micah have their reservations about Zied. Rebecca was married to a younger Arab man before meeting Zied. And this man ended up betraying Rebecca.
So, when it comes to Zied, Micah and Tiffany aren’t sure about his intentions. They’ve worried that he might also end up using Rebecca for a green card.
When talking to Tiffany and Micah ahead of her finance’s arrival, Rebecca noted that Zied felt uncomfortable about being in the same house with Micah because he might see her in her pajamas. “He’s Muslim, he’s conservative,” she told Micah on the 90 Day Fiancé season 8 premiere. “You are technically an unmarried man. So for me to live in a house with another unmarried man, that is not OK.”
But Micah was not interested in facilitating any of Zied’s conservative ideas. ”Well, with the cultural difference, he’s got to get over that,” Micah replied.
“He’s got to catch on to the way things work and catch on quick,” he added. “And I mean, if he does anything out of line, we’re gonna have problems.”
