'90 Day Fiance': Brandon's mother makes Julia uncomfortable by listing house rules, asking personal questions
Brandon lives with his parents – Betty and Ron – on their farm. He is hopeful that it won't be a problem for girlfriend Julia who is flying all the way from Russia to spend 90 days with him to see if they are good to take the next step, which is marriage. Once Julia arrives, and after the initial hour, things start to look a lot different from what she had imagined. While she was keen on staying with Brandon in his parents' home, Betty made that dream of hers difficult by laying down a string of rules for her as everyone sat for dinner for the first time at a cafe in Washington.
Betty began by saying how they are going to be sleeping in different rooms until they get married, which prompted Julia to turn to Brandon and ask: "Explain". He found it tough to believe that his mother would drop truth bombs without giving him the opportunity to do so when he is alone with Julia and they have had time to talk everything out. While Julia was surprised, Ron told Brandon, "You weren't being honest. Shame on you." He went on to ask if Brandon was in agreement with what Betty had to say, and the "mama's boy" readily agreed. He said that it sucks but since it's his parents' house, Julia and he will have to play by the rules.
Once that was over, Betty asked questions to Julia about their family planning. Julia tried to tell her future mother-in-law that kids were something she needs to grill Brandon about but Betty insisted that Julia visit her doctor to understand birth control options. Julia made it clear that they were not having any kids at the moment and that in the 26 years she has lived, she never had any troubles on that front.
Later, during her confessional, Julia admitted to hoping that Brandon would say different things than what he did. Her only wish is that Brandon has a conversation with his parents that would involve a lot of explaining about how they need to have a separate life and then there are certain things they prefer to do.
