Instead of following Americans and their foreign partners dating in the United States and attempting to marry within 90 days like the original 90 Day Fiance series, 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way follows American citizens moving across the globe and living in foreign countries for the sake of love and their future spouses.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s Americans also have to wed within 90 days in order to stay in their new countries.
According to TLC, Jenny is a 60-year-old from Palm Springs, CA, and Sumit is a 30-year-old from Delhi, India.
Jenny, a divorced grandmother who had previously been married for 15 years, revealed on the premiere of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way she was born in 1957 and Sumit was born in 1988.
Their love story began when Jenny received a Facebook request from a young, handsome, buff, English male model named Michael Jones.
After Jenny and “Michael” got to know each other better and developed mutual feelings, “Michael” decided to come clean and admit Jenny had been catfished.
Sumit was in fact posing as Michael all along. He was living with his parents in Delhi, India and worked in a call center.
Sumit apparently enjoyed talking to women online while he worked, and he told the cameras during the debut episode of The Other Way spinoff, “I love white girls.”

Although Sumit initially lied to Jenny about his identity, Jenny — who found the real Sumit “adorable” — decided to forgive him and move forward with their romantic relationship.
From there, love apparently blossomed, despite their huge age difference.
Jenny then traveled to India to meet the love of her life in person, but the four-month trip was cut short when Sumit learned his parents disapproved of the romance and would not allow them to get married.
Sumit’s mother was especially upset because Jenny is older than her.
However, Jenny and Sumit continued their relationship long distance, and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way debuted with her making plans to move to India permanently so she can be with Sumit forever. In fact, Jenny received her visa in the mail to travel abroad.
Jenny then moved to India with her life savings of $6,000 — which, according to a financial advisor, would only last six to nine months in India. She left behind her three daughters and four grandchildren all in the name of love.
Jenny knew life in India was going to be challenging, but she hoped Sumit and herself would figure it out together.
“Sometimes what you do for love is unbelievable. You’re willing to take a risk and you just go for it,” Jenny said, adding that she couldn’t wait to be in her man’s arms again.
“Who thinks they’re going to start their life over again at 60? I’m just really hoping I’m doing the right thing.”

Sumit picked Jenny up at the airport, and she soon discovered he had found an apartment for them to stay. Sumit told his parents he had to move out of their home because of a job opportunity, but he wasn’t sure how long he’d be able to keep up the lie.
“I’m lying because if my parents find out Jenny is here, they are going to stop me,” Sumit told the cameras. “Now that we are together, I can finally feel the feeling of being happy.”
Sumit loved Jenny, but he hated the idea of having to choose between his girlfriend and his parents.
Once Jenny and Sumit got settled into their new apartment together, they apparently made love and life was a dream — but the harsh reality of Jenny’s new living situation and culture quickly set in when she realized she couldn’t even take a hot shower and traditional Indian clothing isn’t her style.
Sumit felt “a lot of pressure mentally” since Jenny had given up so much for him.
Sumit later revealed he had left his job to make arrangements for Jenny’s arrival, such as finding them an apartment, and so he wasn’t working or employed at that time.
Sumit quit his job so he could spend more time with Jenny, but she didn’t know how they were going to pay their bills and their rent. Jenny needed security in India, but the fact Sumit was no longer working left her feeling “terrified.”
Not only did the couple need money to get married, but Jenny would also have to wait a while in order to obtain a work permit to start making money on her own.

Jenny gave up everything to be with Sumit and wished he had involved her in his decision making. She wondered if Sumit was keeping anything else from her, but he insisted he’d take care of her and everything would be fine.
But everything wasn’t “fine.” Not only did some locals in India make fun of Sumit and Jenny and treat them with disrespect, but the couple received very bad news when they met with an immigration lawyer to discuss the marriage process.
The couple was told they had to apply for marriage under the special marriage act by sending a letter to a registrar, who would issue the notice to “the dwelling place.”
Jenny and Sumit therefore had to inform the registrar’s office of their permanent address, but that address would have to be the home of Sumit’s parents. The idea of a notice about his marriage getting sent to his parents made Sumit feel scared.
“If they find out, everything is going to get ruined. That was the worst thing I ever heard,” Sumit told the cameras.
Jenny then asked the lawyer if Sumit’s parents could object to the wedding, but the lawyer basically said they didn’t have to worry about that.
“Whether [the marriage] will be afforded or not is depending upon law. Then you have the recourse to the court,” the lawyer said.
Jenny took that to mean she’d have to fight to marry Sumit and hire lawyers and whatnot. Jenny knew this process was not going to be cheap, and her heart dropped into her stomach at the idea things may not work out.
“I think we were both shocked,” Jenny noted.
Jenny feared Sumit’s parents would come storming into their apartment upon receiving the marriage notice and flip out. Sumit told Jenny to keep her faith because he didn’t want her to leave him.
Jenny said it was almost impossible to maintain a long-distance relationship for six years but they did it and she considered this news to be a major blow.
Jenny cried to the cameras, unaware of what was to come of her relationship.
“Everyone needs to understand why. We love each other. Nobody can keep us apart. Whatever we need to do, I’ll do,” Sumit told Jenny as she cried in his arms.
Sumit told Jenny if sending a notice to his parents’ house is the only way they can register to get married, then they’d have to do it.
Jenny prepared for a big fight, but Sumit said he was willing to face his parents’ objections and be strong for the love of his life.
Jenny called Sumit out for not fighting for her in the past, but Sumit insisted he was going to make things right and stand up to his disapproving parents. Sumit’s parents seemed to be the only thing standing in the way of their romance.
Time was running out on Jenny’s visa. She only had six months to get married in India or else she’d have to return to America.
“I can’t imagine [Sumit] letting that happen,” Jenny told the cameras.
“I am not going to back down,” Sumit promised his wife.
Later on, Sumit received a phone call from his father, but he kept it a secret from Jenny so she wouldn’t worry. Sumit’s father asked for his live location because he was suspicious of his son’s whereabouts.
Sumit said he had to meet his parents in order to satisfy them and address their concerns but Jenny wasn’t going to like it.
Sumit therefore told Jenny he must return home and make things right with his parents or else they’d create issues for the couple.
Sumit didn’t know how long he had to stay with his parents, but Jenny found that unacceptable. Jenny admittedly depended on Sumit for everything in India given she didn’t know the language and didn’t even know how to secure a rickshaw for herself to get around.
Jenny complained life would be “impossible” without Sumit, and so she was angry he couldn’t give her a straight answer. Jenny didn’t even feel comfortable staying in their apartment alone.
“Once again, I am let down and I am hurt. I am in shock, actually! I don’t know how to feel about this, and I don’t know what to do next,” Jenny complained.
Sumit told Jenny to stay home, watch TV, and he’d make sure that he would get her a supply of food. Sumit didn’t want his parents to ruin his relationship, so he said he had to go home and they had no other option.
Jenny told Sumit to stand up to his family, and he planned to do that but said he needed a little more time first. Jenny was upset because he had already broken a couple of promises to her.
Sumit told Jenny that he loved her and it would only be a matter of time until he returned to her.
“My heart is broken. I put all of my trust and faith into him. I came to India to be with him; I didn’t come to India for him to go back home to his parents’ house. That wasn’t the deal,” Jenny vented in a confessional.
Sumit was sad to leave Jenny alone, but he insisted he was doing this for her.
So did Sumit’s parents drive Jenny and Sumit apart? Are they still together? Did Jenny stay in India?
According to Jenny and Sumit’s Instagram accounts, they are still together and happy!
The pair apparently live in the city of Gurgaon, which is about two hours outside of Delhi, India.
While Sumit’s Instagram page is mainly full of selfies, his profile picture includes Jenny. And Jenny’s profile picture on Instagram also features Sumit.
Jenny has posted numerous pictures of herself in India, with and without Sumit. They appear to be happy and in love.
Jenny has shared photos on her Instagram account of the couple as recently as August 11.
Jenny shared a photo on August 11 of the couple holding hands and captioned it, “Beautiful place in New Delhi, India #90daystheotherway #sumitandjenny #realtytvstars #tlc#mondaynights#90dayfiance #realitytv #ourloveourlife.”
That same day, she posted a picture of the happy couple sitting in the grass.
“A day at Lodhi Garden, New Delhi…and I am wearing leggings #sumitandjenny #90daystheotherway #90dayfiance #90dayfiancepillowtalk #realtytvstars #realitytv#tlc #ourlife#blend_it_boo #ourhappiness,” she wrote alongside the image.
It appears Jenny has embraced Indian style and culture.
On August 2, Jenny shared a selfie of the couple as well as a photo of Starbucks in India, which Jenny said made her feel like she was back home in the United States. She even added the hashtag #iloveindia.
Back on July 30, Jenny showed off the view from her apartment’s terrace in Gurgaon, India and called it “beautiful.”
One week earlier, the pair visited The Red Fort in New Delhi and boasted how their love “is real.”
“I love this man so much. Don’t care what anyone thinks. He’s best for me. #SumitandJenny #90daystheotherway #fightforlove #tlc90dayfiance,” Jenny reiterated on July 15 when she posted a photo of the couple together.
Jenny had also gushed around that time how their “love will win” on Instagram.
“We love each other,” she added in mid-July on her social-media account.
The pair apparently love going out for drinks and beers together.
Back on June 20, Jenny posted a photo of Sumit with the caption, “I love you Jenny” written across the image.
“To the moon and back. Sumit and Jenny,” Jenny captioned her post.
All of Jenny’s posts are also adorned with heart and kissing emojis.
Jenny, however, confused some fans since some of her posted photos were taken back in the United States. She clarified on May 31, “Have to leave the country every 180 days. So stupid.”
Whether the 180 day limit means the couple has not yet married unclear, as direct evidence of a marriage has yet to surface even though Jenny is still living in Sumit’s native country.
