The 90 Day Fiancé franchise shines a light on the ups and downs of international relationships, and it’s time to talk about partners who love and respect their significant others. Most couples on the series constantly put each other down. However, there are a few decent cast members who actually treat their partners (and exes) well. It can be refreshing to see positive gestures on a reality show that is usually filled with chaos.
The TLC series 90 Day Fiancé documents the stories of American citizens who fall in love with people from foreign countries. They must overcome obstacles while bringing their partners to live with them in their home countries. Long-distance relationships can tear couples apart, but some pairs become closer due to their experiences. There are 90 Day Fiancé cast members who find it hard to live apart from their other halves, and this can take a toll on their emotions.

On 90 Day Fiancé, there are cast members who are very supportive of their partners and ex-partners. They show their love by giving them gifts, acting sympathetic when family arguments happen, and accepting their partners’ loved ones with open arms. These supportive acts help some duos to grow stronger in their relationships. Now, it’s time to look at 90 Day Fiancé cast members who are good to their partners.
Kenneth Niedermeier is a fan-favorite cast member on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way because of his sweet personality. The father of four grown children (who is now a grandfather of two) moved away from his family in Florida to live with his husband Armando Rubio in Mexico. Kenny is 26 years older than Armando, but he was happy to be a bonus father to Armando’s 9-year-old daughter Hannah Rubio from a previous relationship. Kenny loves Hannah just as though she was his own.
In the days leading up to Kenny and Armando’s wedding on The Other Way season 3, Armando had a difficult time getting his father Armando Sr. to acknowledge his relationship with Kenny. Armando worried about whether his father would go to his wedding. During this time, Kenny was understanding of Armando’s situation and stood by his side. Armando expressed interest in either adopting a child from an orphanage for children living with HIV or getting a surrogate. Kenny visited the orphanage with Armando, despite his uncertainty about wanting another child. The emotional support that Armando gives Kenny makes him a great husband.
Ariela Weinberg’s ex-husband Leandro Fosque went to visit her in Ethiopia on The Other Way season 3. She had often confided in Leandro in the past and was still speaking to him during a rough patch in her relationship with Biniyam Shibre. Ariela and her Argentinian ex Leandro never officially broke up. They were on a break when Ariela met Biniyam on a trip to Ethiopia; she got pregnant shortly afterward. When Leandro was in Ethiopia, he was respectful to Ariela and her new family. Even Baby Aviel got along well with him, which made Biniyam jealous.
When he arrived in Ethiopia, Leandro came bearing many gifts from America. He brought Ariela special bras that she wanted. This made Biniyam angry, and 90 Day Fiancé fans were very confused. Leandro gave Biniyam speakers, as well as baby items for Aviel. Most fans thought that Leandro’s gifts were inappropriate, but he was just trying to give Ariela and her family important things that they wouldn’t be able to find in Ethiopia.
90DF star Stephanie Davison reunited with her younger boyfriend Ryan Carr on 90 Day Fiancé season 8. Stephanie was weary of Ryan’s honesty, which ruined their relationship. However, she still spent money on a vacation with him on the island. Throughout her time in Belize, Stephanie was worried about Ryan texting other women. The Michigan native brought her 27-year-old boyfriend expensive watches believed to be worth thousands of dollars. She also gave him a wardrobe full of designer clothes and acted as his mother instead of his girlfriend.
When Stephanie noticed Ryan’s infidelity, she dumped him and started seeing his cousin, Harris Flowers. Stephanie recycled Ryan’s gifts and gave them to Harris, knowing that doing so would upset her ex. Last year, Stephanie posted a photo of a resold Invicta watch on her Instagram page. Fans assumed that Ryan from 90DF didn’t keep all the gifts since Stephanie was publicly selling them on Amazon. The watch, originally priced at $3,000, was being listed on the website for a little over $200. Everyone was outraged by Stephanie’s dishonesty about the luxury items. Stephanie is no longer with Ryan or Harris, and she wasted a lot of money. She showered men with gifts, rather than spotting the obvious red flags.
On 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 4, David Murphey finally met his girlfriend Lana in person. The two had been talking online through a dating site for seven years. David traveled to Kyiv, Ukraine four other times and was stood up by Lana. 90 Day Fiancé fans were shocked when Lana actually showed up as herself. She didn’t end up catfishing the Las Vegas resident, which isn’t what the viewers expected. David spent a lot of his money at the dating site and on a total of five trips to Ukraine. Fans became aggravated that David was acting so nice to Lana, even when she blew him off many times.
When David and Lana spent time together in Ukraine, he gave her an iPhone as a gift. Since Lana doesn’t speak English very well, he felt the device would make it easier for them to communicate. Before Lana had a cell phone, her only form of communication with David was through the dating site where they met. As 90DF’s David was leaving to go back to the U.S., he decided to propose to Lana at the airport. The proposal was awkward, but Lana said yes. Her ring featured a cubic zirconia gemstone. This disappointed some fans, who expected a real diamond. David and Lana are not together anymore. He moved on and is dating 90 Day Fiancé season 8 cast member Amira Lollysa, who is from France. It wouldn’t be surprising if David and Amira appeared on another installment of the franchise. He will probably spoil her with gifts as he did with Lana.
When 90 Day Fiancé cast members treat their current and former partners well, it can be refreshing, unless it’s disturbing. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell whether they’re being genuine or bribing their 90DF partners to stay with them. Oftentimes, there is a Green Card and the possibility of moving to the U.S. at stake. Whether by offering emotional support or giving gifts, certain 90DF partners will do whatever it takes to make their partners happy.
