90 Day Fiance: The Other Way stars Ariela and Biniyam have reached a crossroads. Monday’s episode of the TLC reality show revealed the couple facing tough questions relating to their relationship. Ariela is concerned these tough questions might eventually lead to them breaking up. She questions whether she is the right woman for Biniyam.
90 Day Fiance stars Ariela and Biniyam and their struggles
Fans will remember that Ariela’s mom, Janice, accompanied her to Ethiopia, She wanted to ensure the country was suitable for her pregnant daughter and her grandbaby. Things went badly from the start, as Janice didn’t approve of the apartment he had arranged for him and Ariela. On a good note, when Janice’s mom visited the hospital where Ariela would give birth, she was impressed.
The next worry for Janice is the fact that the 90 Day Fiance star has been married before to an American woman. That relationship also produced a baby but led to his wife leaving as she was jealous of his career in entertainment. She eventually left with their child, accusing him of an inappropriate relationship with another woman.

In a recent episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, fans watched as Biniyam danced provocatively with his former girlfriend in the club where he works. Red flags popped up on that occasion, with Janice shocked and Ariela concerned.
Biniyam’s family speaks up
Biniyam’s sister admits to the TLC cameras that she would be happier if he married an Ethiopian woman. Another sister asks Biniyam, “What if Ari takes the baby and leaves?” She went on to ask him how he plans to prevent that happening to him again.
Ariela has promised Biniyam that she won’t do that and Biniyam says he believes her. However, he tells the cameras that he doesn’t think his family trusts Ariela. The 90 Day Fiance star feels sad about this and hopes they will eventually understand their relationship. Biniyam says he has learned from his past.
As reported here, Biniyam took Ariela to his orthodox church to speak to the priest. He wants to know whether his and Ariela’s baby can be baptized there. The problem is, his religion is Ethiopian Orthodox Christian. Meanwhile, Ariela’s father is Jewish and her mother is Roman Catholic. Biniyam feels it is important for their son to be baptized, but this would mean Ariela would have to convert to his religion. The baby has to suckle at a “Christian breast.”
Ariela has already told her sister in a previous episode that she wants to raise their son in the Jewish faith. When her sister asked if Biniyam had any say in the matter, Ariela said no. She finds some aspects of his religion “superstitious, especially the matter of Hell.” Ariela finds that aspect of Christianity to be “awful” to her. She doesn’t think it is something they should be teaching their son.
90 Day Fiance’s Ariela has compromised so much
Ariela has made comprises before to make their relationship work, including continuing to allow Biniyam to dance with his former girlfriend. However, she finds the religious aspect “too much” to accept. Ariela believes she has already sacrificed so much for their baby.
When they leave the church, she has a talk with Biniyam. The TLC reality star tells him she has been thinking about what the priest had said. She understands their baby cannot be baptized unless she is also baptized. Ariela does want to make Biniyam feel good and she wants him to be happy. However, she doesn’t think she can do that and she asks if that upsets him.
The Ethiopian replies that while his religion is important to him, he doesn’t want to worry about it right then. However, Ariela says she feels really sad, because she can’t help but believe she is not the right person for Biniyam. The 90 Day Fiance star loves him but has no idea how they are going to get past this important topic.
A preview of next Monday’s episode shows Ariela, looking emotional as she tells Biniyam she feels he doesn’t know her at all. As noted by ET, Biniyam goes on to plead with her not to leave him.
Can the relationship between Ariela, Biniyam and their baby survive this latest impasse? Watch 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way on Mondays at 9 pm ET/PT on TLC to find out.
