The show follows their relationship as it unfolds against a backdrop of a variety of issues, such as the language barrier, cultural differences, sometimes skeptical family and friends.

Sometimes awkward, sometimes funny, always unpredictable, 90 Day Fiancé has proven to be a hit with the audience.
