90 Day Fiancé: The Real Reason Zied Is In A Rush To Marry Rebecca

Life is complicated on 90 Day Fiancé. Not only are the couples navigating culture shock, language barriers, and a ticking clock on their K-1 visas, but the COVID-19 pandemic has added an extra layer of complexity to nuptial decisions. Couples must not only choose if the 90 days allowed by their engagement visas should end in marriage, but also, what that wedding should look like in the midst of a pandemic.

But for Rebecca and Zied, there's another factor to consider that Rebecca wasn't even aware of — Ramadan. Zied's Muslim faith means that he won't be able to get married during the holy month of Ramadan, which begins April 12. Per ET Online, Rebecca was more than a little frustrated that she wasn't made aware of this sooner.

"Ramadan is the biggest holiday when it comes to Islam, and Zied suddenly mentions that we can't get married during Ramadan," Rebecca said (via ET Online). "The main issue is that Ramadan starts in the next few weeks and it lasts about a month long. So, I don't know why it hasn't come up before now." 

Additionally, Zied told her that they won't be able to live together as a couple unless they are married, per TV Insider.

Rebecca wants more than a courthouse wedding

But Rebecca doesn't want to feel rushed into things. "Despite the fact that I've been married three times before, to be honest, this feels like the first time I'm getting married. This is going to be my last wedding, so I want it to be special," Rebecca said in episode 12 of season 8. (via TV Insider).

While touring a wedding venue with a horse-drawn carriage, she seemed less than thrilled with Zied reminding her that they may need to have a courthouse wedding — not just due to coronavirus concerns, but so that they can live together through Ramadan as well. Rebecca's insecurities have played a major role on 90 Day Fiancé, often showing up when younger women pay attention to Zied. Dropping a timeline bomb on her isn't exactly helping her trust their relationship. And it's not like she hasn't been burned before.

Per ET Online, Rebecca also told cameras, "The 90 days for me are very important because the last time that I did this with my ex from Morocco. I married him really quickly and he became an entirely different person. But between, you know, the coronavirus and the Ramadan deadline, I don't know what I'll do." Viewers will just have to wait and see.
