'90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' Season 7: Sumit's dad accepts Jenny, fans call it 'switch up for TV'
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Sumit Singh receives his father's approval and is no longer shunned — but his mother refuses to speak to Jenny Slatten. Fans of '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' however, aren't buying the sudden change in his father's decision.
Sumit's family welcomes him back, but they aren't convinced. '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' Tell-All aired on Sunday, January 15, where Sumit's father formally approved of the pair. The happy news comes after a difficult season for Jenny and Sumit, which began with Sumit's mother openly disowning him for secretly marrying Jenny. The shame of their son's treachery split the family apart, leaving Sumit entirely lonely. Sumit's father once advised him to divorce Jenny if he ever wanted his family to support him again. However, Sumit appears to have reestablished "normal" relations with his mother. Despite this, she isn't ready to accept Jenny into the fold any time soon.
"There was a time when my wife was not talking to Sumit," his father revealed during the episode on Sunday. "She doesn't want to see his face. But, time has changed. Now, she is talking to him very gently, and very sweetly." "The relationship between Sumit and my wife [is] normal," he continued. The family also affirmed that their acceptance of Jenny has not changed. "She's still not accept[ing] the relationship. That's why she's not here," the father continued.
As things stand, Sumit's family will not ask Jenny to any family gatherings, but the pair is fine with Sumit attending family gatherings alone. "I'm really okay with that because she doesn't feel comfortable with me, and it makes me feel uncomfortable, too," Jenny explained. "I'd rather just stay home where I'm safe."
Jenny spent much of this '90 Day' season contemplating a move to America, where she has loved ones who embrace her relationship with Sumit. However, in Sunday's episode, the Indian native indicated that he is still not ready to leave his country - at least not permanently. The pair also revealed that they haven't applied for Sumit's visa yet and that if they do visit America, it will just be on vacation.
"Not permanently," Sumit remarked. "Jenny said, 'You should come to America and see my family and my culture, too'. I'm okay with that, I can come for some time — but just for a visit," he added.
Fans were quick to note how Sumit's family reacted to his Visa application status, "Sumit’s family were smug happy when they heard that Jenny hadn’t applied for Sumit’s visa." Given how Sumit's mother is yet to come around, a viewer tweeted, "SO I see Sumit's mom is still the queen of petty." After seeing Sumit's dad accepting Jenny, one viewer wrote, "I feel like Sumit’s dad doesn’t really care that he’s married to Jenny, but he has to show to his wife that he’s on her side." On the other hand, another viewer quipped, "Me watching Anil (Sumit's dad) switch up for TV."

Seeing how uneasy Sumit's father looked being on the Tell-All, one fan quipped, "Sumit's dad looks like he's being held hostage. They only asked you to say something nice about Jenny, calm down!" Some viewers are also done with the drama and their ever-longing storyline, "Sumit & Jenny have been together for 8 yrs. At this point, I don't think the parent's approval matters. It's almost like "how can we milk this and just keep on milking it?"" Calling out Sumit's sister-in-law, a fan wrote, "Sumit’s sister-in-law: We’re quite rational people. [Mother] wouldn’t have stopped the wedding. Um, didn’t they kidnap Sumit when he was living with Jenny? Totally rational." Another fan while commending Sumit's mother wrote, "Mamá Sumit didn’t want to be on the Tell All. She has the strongest, most stubborn backbone of anyone I’ve ever seen! I respect that energy."
