What is Jovi Dufren's net worth? A closer look at '90 Day Fiance' star's luxurious lifestyle and fiance Yara Zaya
Yara Zaya has expensive tastes but looks like her to-be-husband Jovi Dufren can back them up
Jovi Dufren and his fiancée, Yara Zaya, are one of those 'can't live with you, can't live without' couples. While we've seen them fight endlessly on screen — Zaya thinks he should find a new job, she's not a fan of New Orleans and wants him to spend more time with her — Dufren, on the other hand, has no intention of moving, loves his work and doesn't see eye to eye with Zaya on her endless issues.
And then, there's the whole incident with Zaya's pregnancy back when they were in Albania. Not only did Dufren have to leave her on account of his work, she also ended up having a miscarriage and lose her passport, it proved to be a trying time for both of them. Despite the odds, the couple seems to have stuck together through thick and thin.
Zaya has no qualms in hiding the fact that she is high-maintenance. Luckily, looks like Dufren can back up her expensive tastes, which is unheard of in the '90 Day' universe, since money issues are a constant storyline on the show.

His profile also mentions that he's had his job since 2013 — it's safe to say, he genuinely loves what he does. His work does keep him away from home, but it's not all bad, seeing that he absolutely loves to travel. That might change soon, since Zaya wants him around more often, forcing him to pick between his relationship and his work.
