'90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way': Sumit reveals he tried to kill himself thrice in his earlier marriage
Sumit decides to confront his family and finally opens his heart and talks about his relationship with Jenny
Sumit Singh, 32, and Jenny Slatten, 61, had been struggling to get his parents' approval for their relationship and in the latest episode, he finally decides to confront them. His parents, Anil and Sahna Singh came to the show to tell their side of the story. Opening up about the first time they met Jenny, the pair revealed she came to stay with them as Sumit's Facebook friend who wanted to see India.
Sahna revealed Jenny stayed with them for four months and during that time she treated her like a daughter. However, the two grew suspicious about Sumit's relationship with Jenny when they noticed he was spending a lot of time with Jenny at night. Finally, they confronted him and were shocked to find out that they were in a relationship.
In the latest episode (October 11), Sumit decided to tell his parents that he and Jenny are together and there is nothing that would make him turn his back against her. Despite this, Anil and Sahna were not open to the idea of having Jenny as Sumit's partner. They wondered what would the society think of the relationship.
Anil also spoke about the age difference and stated how it would be impossible for Sumit to chose if he should take care of them during old age or her. However, Sumit assured them that he would be there for everyone equally. This conversation led to Sumit's mother reminding him about everything his dad has done for him.
Meanwhile, his father felt like the dreams of seeing their grandchildren had been smashed. Hearing them say all this, Sumit could not control his anger. He reminded them of the time when he had come to them and stated that it was getting hard to go on while being married to another woman. Sumit further confessed that he contemplated suicide thrice during this time.
His mother could not control his emotions and broke down crying. Sumit made it clear that he would not be leaving Jenny no matter what the society thought. At the same time, he requested his parents to accept her and care about him more than the society.
While Anil and Sahna gave Sumit a hug, the fate of Jenny and his relationship still hung by a thin thread. Anil hinted they would see what fate has in store for Sumit and Jenny but made it clear that at the moment, they will not accept her.
