“Obviously, they’re excited to meet your family, but I don’t know if they’re going to be judgmental, or how they’re going to act,” the 90 Day Fiancé star stated actually. “Because they’re used to everything being modern and fancy, and they act a little bougie.”
Andrei translated to his mom, “She does not know how her family will react, because they have high standards, and if they see something old, they do not know what to do. In Moldova, everything is old. Not like in America.” His mother appeared a bit stunned by her son’s blunt phrases, in addition to his characterization of Moldova.

The ’90 Day Fiancé’ star accused Andrei of hiding vital particulars from his household

Elizabeth defined that her household was excited, however they wished Andrei hadn’t introduced the marriage only a month beforehand—with no plans set in stone earlier than the occasion.
“I think that my family wishes that we gave them more time, and that we would have planned it out a little bit better so they could have managed it,” Elizabeth stated.
When Andrei started to chop his spouse off and supply a retort, she admitted she was suspicious that he won’t have been completely truthful together with his household about simply how last-minute the marriage plans actually had been.
“Well, did you explain to your family and translate to your family what you did and how you gave us no time and planned things without us?” Elizabeth requested her husband accusingly.
Andrei insisted he had, however Elizabeth wasn’t shopping for it. “Are you sure?” the 90 Day Fiancé star requested her husband doubtfully. “I don’t think you did. I think you should tell them right now.”
Elizabeth’s husband took a deep breath and reluctantly informed his mother, “She said that we did give them too little notice and they didn’t have time to plan. I did this on purpose, so they cannot come.”
His mother responded thoughtfully, “I don’t think you did it on purpose. This is just how things worked out.”
“She says she doesn’t believe that I did bad,” Andrei loosely translated to his spouse.
“Are you telling her the truth and translating properly?” Elizabeth requested him testily.

Elizabeth informed 90 Day Fiancé producers that she wasn’t all the time positive that Andrei informed his household all the things. And due to the language barrier, she wasn’t positive the right way to rectify the scenario.
“I feel like I’m kind of missing something in the translation here,” she admitted, “because Andrei’s mom is asking what my family thinks about us doing the wedding and planning it so last minute, but then again, she’s kind of defending and taking Andrei’s side.”
Some ’90 Day Fiancé’ followers questioned if Andrei was translating inaccurately on function

Another commenter argued, “She needs a translator because he isn’t being truthful with everything.”
Yet one other fan thought Elizabeth ought to get a translation app with a view to make positive her conversations with Andrei’s household had been correct.
