Are 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way stars Jenny Slatten and Sumit Singh still together? The couple brought major drama on season 1 and delivered one of the most shocking twists in franchise history when Jenny learned about Sumit’s big secret: he was married to another woman in an arranged marriage set up by his parents, but he really wanted to be with Jenny. When they returned for season 2, they were dedicated to fighting for their love and for their right to be together despite all of the obstacles that stood in their way. By season 3, their love story stalled as Sumit didn’t seem to want to go through with marrying Jenny.
Sumit and Jenny met online a decade ago in 2011, but their relationship started off on the wrong foot because Sumit catfished Jenny with photos of a different man under the name “Michael Jones.” When he eventually came clean to Jenny after four months of talking online, she was already in love with him and was willing to look past the catfishing.
In 2013, Jenny visited Sumit and his family in India for four months and they planned to get married but Sumit’s family did not approve of their relationship. After Jenny returned to the United States, they arranged for Sumit to be married to another woman, and Sumit never revealed the big news to Jenny and kept their long-distance relationship going. When she left everything behind in America to be with him in 2019, she thought she would be marrying Sumit and starting a new life with him.
Jenny found out about the heartbreaking news when she was confronted by Sumit’s father-in-law, Sumit’s wife and the rest of Sumit’s family members at the apartment they had been living together at for several weeks. It seemed like Jenny learning about Sumit’s betrayal would be the end of their relationship, but he was not ready to give up.
He made it clear he wanted to still be with Jenny and was willing to divorce his wife in order to do so. Jenny was also willing to forgive him under the condition that he would leave his wife.
But that posed a problem for the couple’s living arrangements. Jenny gave up everything behind in America to move to India to be with Sumit. She was only allowed to stay in the country for about three months legally on her visa, and she planned to marry Sumit before her visa expired so that she could be able to stay in India legally as Sumit’s wife. Since he was already legally married to another woman, Jenny had no choice but to return to the United States after the end of season 1.
In August 2019, Jenny was spotted at Walmart in Hemet, California, which is about an hour away from her hometown of Palm Springs. A fan recognized her and snapped a selfie with the reality star. The sighting confirmed that she was living in America again.
Jenny and Sumit still continued their long-distance relationship. While they were apart, Sumit started the divorce proceedings. When they returned for 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 2, they documented her second trip to India as they hoped to get married this time.
Sumit’s divorce was finalized shortly after Jenny arrived in India, but they still faced the obstacle of Sumit’s parents, Sahna and Anil. They refused to accept Sumit’s relationship with Jenny and Sumit did not want to marry Jenny against their wishes. He remained hopeful that they would eventually give them their blessing.
In a November 2020 episode, Sumit and Jenny sat down with Anil and Sahna to once again ask them to give them their blessing to marry. Things got so heated that Sahna threatened to commit suicide if Sumit went forward with his plans to marry Jenny. They came to an agreement: if Sumit promised not to marry Jenny, his parents would accept them living together as a couple.
By the time they returned for an update on discovery+’s 90 Day Bares All, things had not improved between Jenny and Sumit and Sahna and Anil. In the episode that aired in January 2021, Jenny revealed she had been living in India with Sumit for a year.
“When the pandemic hit, they shut the borders, then no flights in, no flights out. So I just apply for an extension every month. So that’s the way I’ve been doing it, every month, new extension,” Jenny said, sharing an update on her visa status. “My visa can expire and if they don’t want to extend it, that’s when I’m probably going to have to leave the country.”
When host Shaun Robinson asked why they hadn’t gotten married yet, Jenny said, “Sumit doesn’t seem to want to separate from his family, so …”
Shaun asked if Jenny will be satisfied with her relationship with Sumit as a live-in couple even without getting married. “No,” Jenny said.
Jenny and Sumit continued to share their journey on season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. On the season premiere in August 2021, the couple revealed they were still living together in India but there was a big problem. Jenny was nearing the limit of how many times she could apply for an extension on her visa. If the government denied her extensions, she would have to return to the United Sates.
The couple consulted with an immigration lawyer, who explained their options. Since Jenny has a 10 year tourist visa, she can stay in the country for up to six months at a time, leave but then return for another six months. The couple could travel together to a nearby country with open borders to Indian and American travelers, stay there for an extended vacation and then reenter India to restart Jenny’s six-month living period in India. Another option would be for Jenny to apply for a missionary visa as Hare Krishna devotee, but it would take several years for her to reach devotee status in the religious movement. The only option for Jenny to remain in India permanently is for her to marry Sumit, but Sumit didn’t seem ready to go through with their wedding because his parents still did not approve of Jenny.
At his brother’s baby shower — which Jenny was not invited to because his parents don’t consider her as part of their family — Sumit announced that he and Jenny were engaged. His mother, Sahna, took the news so hard that she got up and walked away. On the October 3, 2021 episode, Sumit explained to Jenny the root of his mother’s anger toward their relationship.
Sumit said that he had a sister who was about a year and a half younger than him, but she passed away at 8 months old due to jaundice. Since then, Sahna felt that she would be able to gain a daughter when her sons married. Sahna was very close with Sumit’s ex-wife, as they would talk regularly and spend time together. When Sumit divorced his ex, it was another loss for Sahna. Sumit and Jenny decided that it would be best to find a couples counselor as well as a family counselor to get professional help so they can be able to move forward in a healthy way.
In a preview for the October 10 episode, Sumit gets honest with Jenny about their future together. “I’ll marry you, but things take time,” he said. “Don’t force me, and I will do it.”
“You don’t want to marry me,” Jenny responded. “Absolutely, 100 percent, you do not want to marry me.” In another scene, Jenny decided that she would have to leave Sumit again to teach him a lesson and show him that she’s serious.
While it seems fans will have to keep tuning in to find out how their story plays out, it looks like they may have been able to iron out their issues. As of October 2021, it seems Jenny and Sumit are still together and still living in India. They sparked wedding rumors in September when Sumit shared a photo of himself dressed in a suit while Jenny wore a traditional Indian dress. The couple held hands and stared lovingly into each other’s eyes. The pose and their formal attire led to fan speculation in the comments.
“I hope this is a wedding photo ❤️,” one fan wrote. Another follower added, “I hope this is the wedding. She has been very tolerant to all his excuses [eye roll emoji].”
