Steven, 90 Day Fiance’s season 3 star, asked Alina, his Russian girlfriend if she could continue dating other women. Is Steven now practicing polygamy?
Melicia Johnson, ET’s Melicia spoke to the 25-year-old reality star about the unexpected move that Alina, 20 years old on the hit TLC series described as shocking and hurtful.
Steven, a Mormon from Utah, and Alina, who is Russian, met in a language program. She was initially hesitant to meet him because some Russians consider Mormonism a cult, and she feared he might kidnap organs. But the two got along well.
After only spending two weeks in person, they are now preparing to move together to Turkey. He is unable to travel to Russia due to the coronavirus epidemic.
There have been some complications. Alina, who delayed her graduation in order to be with Steven told her friends she was uncomfortable with him talking too much with a female friend and that Steven had asked permission at one time to visit other women.
Steven’s request to date another woman is described as “kinda tricky”. He said that viewers will have to wait to get more information. However, when asked if he was okay with Alina requesting permission to date another guy, he explained his reasoning.
“Well, I suppose we were far away,” he continued. We had never been so close before. “I felt emotionally unprepared for another relationship with Alina, who is a great woman. I had just ended a lengthy relationship. I felt that we had a strong connection and there was something different about her.I wanted to be prepared for this.
If she wanted to do it, I would not mind. I would never ask her to perform a task if I didn’t approve of her performing it. It’s important to have the same goals in a partnership.
Steven also claimed that Alina was not lying when she told her friends they were both virgins who waited for marriage before having sex. This is because Steven is a Christian. Steven finally admitted to the cameras that he wasn’t a virgin, and had had previous sexual relationships.
He says: “I do not believe that ‘not being honest’ is the right language to use here. It’s something that wasn’t necessarily brought up.” “I don’t think I understood how important it was for her at the time. It’s something I don’t normally talk about in casual conversations.
Alina, when we talked and called, we rarely discussed these topics. I never tell people how many women I have slept with when I call them. That was something we didn’t bring up with Alina.”
Steven still believes that abstinence can be a healthy habit. “I always think of sexuality as something special and sacred,” he says. And I think this led her to think, perhaps.”
He said it didn’t really matter if Alina was no longer a virgin. He said: “I love her and I don’t mind if she isn’t a virgin anymore. As long as she is herself, I’m happy.” It was hard to bring it up because I didn’t wish to disappoint her. The worst part is that I worry she will see how I failed to live up to those ideals and wonder if the church is worth it.”I would never marry someone who wasn’t ready to go to church with me.”
Steven has been called a hypocrite by some for not living up to his religious principles, but he doesn’t care.
He says, “I believe Jesus said it best. ‘He who has no fault in you, let him cast the first stone. “There are so many different opinions and they’re just that – opinions.
“My personal thoughts and opinions are mine. I am lucky to be able to have any opinions I choose.” Steven said that viewers should not expect to see him marry Alina in this season.
He said, “I honestly can say that I would not have known what happened at the beginning of the show… up until now. It’s terrifying, and I am really eager for my mother to see it.” “Don’t see my bits, Mom.” She can watch Sumit, and Jenny, and skip my bits by watching Kenny and Armando.”
He said: “I’m very nervous about every episode because I don’t know what they will emphasize.” What are they showing this week? “Oh my god, I am so weird! When I do something strange, I often think to myself “I thought to myself.”
