90 Day Fiance's star Chantel attends karaoke night without Pedro amid dealing with their volatile relationship
Making the tension clear was Pedro's absence from his wife's Instagram story on a night out with her family and it showed various clips of her mother, father, and brother at a bar.
'90 Day Fiance' stars Chantel and Pedro probably have a lot of work to do in their marriage. Despite it being two years since their marriage, the couple shares quite the volatile relationship. To make matters worse both Chantel and Pedro don't get along with their respective in-laws. During the last episode of the last season, at a family dinner, tensions were heightened as Pedro and Chantel got into a huge fight. There were arguments and things were even thrown at each other as the tempers flared. All this resulted in her brother River ending up with a torn shirt and 'mother Chantel' Karen walking around with Pedro's sister, Nicole's weave saying "muy malo".
Pedro does not get along with his in-laws and we have seen that in various instances. Making the divide clear was his noticeable absence from his wife's Instagram story which featured a night out with her family and it showed various clips of her mother, father, and brother enjoying their time at a bar. After her family night out, she took to saying, "With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts," quoting Eleanor Roosevelt.
Another message quote from Draya Michele read, "No one on social media is prettier than you. They just have more apps". Last week Chantel had shared a quote from former first lady Michelle Obama as she got ready for the new school year. The message read, "Always stay true to yourself and never let what someone says distract you from your goals".
Chantel is currently studying to be a nurse and will be hoping to graduate next year. She wrote, "Getting in the back to school mindset as I prepare for next semester of nursing school. Hard work, sacrifice, and dedication are expected. Embrace what is expected of you is my best advice for future nursing students and prepare rather than complain. It is not easy but well worth it," she continued. Chantel's family have always disapproved of Pedro especially once they came to know the real reason behind their daughter's marriage. They often are heard taunting Pedro about not being right for Chantel.
We are also getting a sense that things may not be all good in the family, because while filming the reunion episode, the couple was reportedly still together but recently, Pedro has not been seen on Chantel's social media feed. Her Instagram biography has no mention of her husband either. However, it has a quote from the bible which reads, "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins".

The situation still remains tense as we see from the sneak peek into the next episode-Pedro refuses to speak to or acknowledge his in-laws. He told the TLC cameras, "I don’t want to see that family in the video chat. Really, I don’t want to be a friend of that family. I really don’t want to talk to that family again," he continued. With both the families of Chantel and Pedro not seeing eye to eye, the newlyweds are under a lot of pressure. Their brittle relationship has led to speculations of an impending divorce but only time will tell whether the couple chooses to stay together.
There have been many arguments between Chantel and Pedro specifically about money and it really bothers her that he keeps sending money back to his family when they have so little themselves. The situation totally escalated once Pedro flew his sister down to Atlanta to stay in their apartment and she refused to sleep on the couch that they had bought for her visit. This caused a lot of tension between her and Chantel. Things went into a downward spiral when Pedro got into a fight with Chantel's brother River and it looks like only a miracle can help the Everett and Jimeno, families.
