Nicole and Debbie both share a similar relationship conundrum on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. 90 Day Fiancé fans heaved a sigh of relief when Debbie ended her relationship with Oussama and returned to the US after he gave her a visa ultimatum. On the other hand, Nicole perseveres in her toxic relationship with Mahmoud. The two couples started the season with the determination to find love.
However, their chance at romantic happily-ever-after has resulted in certain disappointing circumstances. Nonetheless, during the recent 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Tell-All Part 1, Debbie and Nicole reviewed their relationships. Despite watching Debbie leave her relationship with Ousamma, Nicole did not learn anything from her co-star.
Nicole and Debbie’s Similar Relationship Issues
On 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, season 4, fans have watched most couples unravel in the last few episodes. One of the first casualties of the end-of-season craze was the relationship between American Debbie Noguera, 67, and her younger Moroccan lover Oussama, 24. Despite the 43-year age gap, they were determined to make it work, but their relationship irretrievably broke down.
Although the two have had their fair share of challenges since the season began, they always managed to patch things up and move forward. However, things ultimately reached a breaking point when Oussama gave Debbie a make-or-break ultimatum to take him to the US or forget about their relationship.
Debbie felt betrayed by Oussama’s actions and accused him of dating her only to get a US visa. Besides, their initial plan was for Debbie to live with him in Morocco, so she relocated there at the beginning of the season. This was the last straw for Debbie and a cue for her to end their romance. However, she took it further as she packed her bags and returned to the US during Sunday’s episode.
90 Day Fiancé fans have since highlighted the stark contrast between Debbie’s ability to draw the line and Nicole Sherbiny’s continued indecisiveness regarding her toxic relationship with her husband, Mahmoud Sherbiny. The two have showcased one of the most turbulent and one-sided relationships on the show, which has left Nicole feeling isolated throughout the season.
90 Day Fiancé fans recently learned Nicole planned to take Mahmoud to the US. Mahmoud made this revelation during a heart-to-heart talk with his brother, Ahmed. Fans believe it is an ill-advised move by Nicole, and they feel she can learn a thing or two from Debbie.
Nicole Needs To Learn Self Respect
Nicole and Mahmoud Sherbiny have not been pretty to watch on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 4. While the two make a cute couple, how their relationship has played out has left an ugly feeling in the minds of fans. Their marriage has given off many red flags throughout the season, with Mahmoud guilty of displaying the most toxic traits.
Besides being overly controlling and forcing Nicole only to do his bidding, Mahmoud is also very condescending towards his wife, Nicole. It is not a hidden fact that Nicole has had a hard time adjusting to life in Egypt, but Mahmoud has been forceful and very dismissive of her concerns rather than easing her into his culture.
Unfortunately, Nicole continues to cower to Mahmoud’s demands rather than stand up for herself. Fans hoped she would finally find some self-confidence when she made a new friend in Egypt, but not much has materialized. Nouran tried to make Nicole understand that she could be more assertive, but that didn’t work out. Despite countless signs, Nicole keeps subjecting herself to the countless disrespect Mahmoud keeps handing out.
However, 90 Day Fiancé fans feel it may be easier for Nicole to learn from a fellow cast member and are now citing the example of Debbie while urging Nicole to learn from her. Although Oussama had moments of anger, he was always respectful to Debbie. The only moment he stepped out of line resulted in Debbie pulling the plug on their romance.
Nicole Needs To Learn Not To Force Things
Most 90 Day Fiancé fans who have watched the show from the beginning feel Nicole is trying too hard to make her marriage to Mahmoud work, even if it is to her detriment. 90 Day Fiancé Fans have pointed out that marriage is a two-way street that requires both parties to put in the effort.
It also requires compromises, and so far, Nicole has been the only one making any compromise in the marriage.
Nicole’s earlier attempt to live in Egypt with Mahmoud ended in failure due to similar challenges, leading her to return to America. Curiously, she decided to return to Egypt even though those issues had not been resolved.
Since then, she has had to live under Mahmoud’s intense scrutiny. Nicole has no control over what she wears, where she goes, or who she talks to. This has profoundly affected her psyche as she has cut a gloomy figure throughout the season. The show’s fans believe Nicole is forcing her romance with Mahmoud. Her reluctance to leave is why he continues exploiting this weakness and demanding more from her.
Nicole is old enough to know when things are not going according to plan. She made the decision to leave once but now can’t seem to summon the same courage again. They pointed out how Debbie also traveled to Morocco to be with Oussama, like Nicole. However, she could still live on her terms even though the two North African countries share similar cultural beliefs.
Nicole Needs To Learn How To Cut Her Losses Like Debbie
From all indications, Nicole and Mahmoud’s relationship has been doomed to fail from the beginning. Apart from the fact that they rushed their marriage, neither went into it with the right mindset. And as such, their time on the show can be characterized by constant cultural clashes and contentious arguments.
One of the most recurring disagreements they have had has been over Nicole’s dressing. Although Mahmoud mostly got his way in the end, there was still a lot of bad blood between the two. Things eventually boiled over during a previous episode, and Nicole even got physical with Mahmoud while having one of their culture clashes.
Mahmoud’s empty threat to end the relationship at the episode’s end was a familiar occurrence, lacking genuine intention. On her part, Nicole has also threatened to return to the US so many times this season. But each time, she made a U-turn and remained in Egypt with Mahmoud.
Most fans feel she finds it difficult to cut her losses and let go of her relationship with Mahmoud. Debbie took contrasting measures when she found herself in a similar situation as Nicole. Debbie moved to Morocco with certain expectations in her mind. Still, when Debbie realized she and Oussama wanted different things out of the relationship, she walked away without looking back.
Nonetheless, 90 Day Fiancé fans expect the same energy from Nicole. It has now become evident that her relationship with Mahmoud will always lead to disagreements of ideas. So, it serves her best to take a cue from Debbie and end her marriage once and for all. For many fans, that will be the perfect ending for season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé:The Other Way.
