  1. Man, you guys are harder on Jenny than my own Indian mother is. Jenny has made way more of an effort to assimilate than we have seen on Sumit’s end to make her adjustment easier. She wears Indian clothes, she mentioned trying to cook Indian food, and if she had more than two people to talk to in India she might have picked up some more Hindi by now. Sumit had a traditional Indian wife, but he divorced her in a ($20) grand gesture where he begged his parents to reject the customs of old. But all of a sudden Jenny is held to the expectations of Indian housewives from 30 years ago? Why?
  2. Maybe he considers servicing Jenny sexually to be his job. It's not a totally unreasonable assumption. No, this is completely reasonable. Maybe Jenny and Sumit do really embody the family unit every Indian parent imagines for their child: a wife who keeps a sparkling clean house, and a husband who is a sexual slave.
  3. Financially, Sumit has brought $20,000 of debt to the household. One might call him a breadloser.
  4. Is he Asian? I would not have guessed that. His features make him look like sort of a raceless humanoid. Translator app AND a runner? Pole 2.0 has a lot to live up to. I hope this one also comes with a disappointed mother.
  5. Why is everyone suddenly on board with Sumit adhering to traditional Indian norms? It is common for a mother in law to live with her newlywed son and his wife, but couples in India really don’t tend to live together without being married. Many Indian mothers-in-law don’t move in after their son’s weddings. Almost no Indian boyfriends move their girlfriends in without serious plans to get married. Sumit is picking and choosing when he wants to stick to tradition according to when it aligns with what he wants, just like Steven.
  6. Another Russian Alina who meets up with her partner in Turkey! Let’s hope this one has better taste in men.
  7. I am familiar with Indian culture. In Sumit’s culture, sons are expected to earn a living.
  8. Sure. Everything really rests on what Sumit said in his confessional about wanting his life to get back to normal. By normal, he means a traditional Indian couple, where the man works outside the home to provide for the couple and the woman stays at home to manage the household. Sumit even says something about wanting to get a job and Jenny to “take care of him,” or handle all the household chores. This is almost certainly what he saw growing up in his own household. Sumit is trying to force himself and Jenny into the roles in which he saw his father and mother while ignoring the fact th
  9. I know it probably won’t happen, but part of me would love for Sumit’s parents to overstay their welcome and live in Jenny’s house for months, just like Jenny did to them when she first visited India.
  10. He was saying abstinence is the best method of birth control, since only one woman who practiced it (i.e. Mary) has ever gotten pregnant. It must be that kind of wit that keeps Alina going back. Seriously, has anyone figured out what she could possibly see in this guy?
  11. I’m Indian-American! I have family and friends in India and I think Sumit is just lazy.
  12. I have never wanted to slap the stupid grin off of Sumit’s face more than when he was giggling about how his mama cleans better than Jenny does. Mother Sumit can’t be that thorough of a housekeeper, or Sumit would have learned how to pick up a damn broom somewhere along the way!
  13. I forgot about that. They really should have let him paddle off into the horizon.
  14. That was truly hard to watch. How do the other couples stay after that? I would be making a break for it to evacuate Hurricane Kay.
  15. Tipsy Myrla is delightful. Can we swap her out for Jamie Otis, on the condition that she has a couple of those 25 cent martinis before filming?
