While it is clear Yazan’s parents want their son and Brittany — who moved to Jordan from Florida to be with Yazan — to get married immediately because of their religious beliefs and for her to convert to Islam. Brittany is reluctant to convert and also is technically still married to her estranged husband, which she’s been keeping from Yazan and his family.
During last weeks episode Brittany traveled to Chicago to complete paperwork for her divorce, lying to Yazan about why she had to go.
In the clip for this weeks episode Yazan tells his friend, Mohammed, that since Brittany’s been away, things have changed dramatically. While his parents initially gave their blessing for Yazan and Brittany to take more time to get married, they now no longer approve after looking at Brittany’s social media accounts, particularly, when they saw a few of the more revealing photos that she posted.
