90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star Rishi Singh’s mother, Shimla, is against her son getting married to Jen Boecher because of the American woman’s age. Oklahoma resident Jen was on a solo trip to India when model and personal trainer, Rishi, happened to meet her in a hotel. It wasn’t love at first sight for Jen when Rishi showed her his modeling photos, but as they spent more time together, Rishi proposed to Jen, and she agreed, all within a month’s time. Jen expected Rishi to marry her when she met him following a two-year gap because of the pandemic travel ban.
Instead, Rishi’s family was busy trying to find a bride for him. When Jen decided to take matters into her own hands and told Rishi’s family about their engagement, they agreed. But Rishi did not tell Jen that his mother changed her decision when she found out Jen was older than he was. Jen broke up with Rishi, and they were broken up for six months before they met again at a friend’s wedding and started talking. While Jen believed their relationship could not have been labeled, Rishi declared Jen was his fiancé. He even told his Tell-All co-stars that his mom was aware of this new development.
How Old Is 90 Day Fiancé Star Jen Boecher?
When Rishi’s mom, Shimla. was summoned at the Tell-All Part 2, she revealed she knew Jen and Rishi were friends again but did not want them to get married. Rishi’s mom spoke directly to Jen and told her, “If you were a year or six months apart, we would have said ‘yes’ but we were shocked to hear about your age.” Shimla continued, “The only flaw is age. Otherwise, we would have accepted you.” When The Other Way was filming, Rishi was 32 and Jen was 46 years old.
90 Day Fiancé couple Jen and Rishi have a 14-year age gap between them. The first time Jen found out what Rishi’s mom said about her being older than Rishi, Jen remarked she was “annoyed.” Jen felt Shimla’s logic was absurd and declared she wasn’t going to be “age shamed” by Rishi’s mother. Rishi’s mom kept reiterating the same thing about their age difference when she’d already made a point. Jen’s impression of Shimla has changed forever. She thinks Rishi’s mom is “super tacky,” while even Debbie Aguero commented that what Shimla said was “uncouth and cold.”
Will 90 Day Fiancé Star Rishi Go Against His Mom For Jen?
Rishi was under immense pressure from his cast members during the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 4 Tell-All Part 2 to tell his mother that he wanted to get married to Jen and Jen alone, and that he would choose her over his family this time. Rishi going against her wishes might just make Shimla resent Jen even more, especially since Rishi has always been so close to his loved ones. Rishi might have to cut all ties with his family for Jen. It will be interesting to see if Shimla decides that age is just a number and welcomes Jen as her daughter-in-law with a smile.
