Many 90 Day Fiancé viewers think that Biniyam Shibre may be a worse partner than his baby mama Ariela Weinberg, after seeing his actions on the show over the years. Biniyam and Ariela were first featured on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 2 in 2020. During the introduction segment, the New Jersey native revealed that she saw Biniyam at a taxi stand outside her hotel, and struck up a flirty conversation with him. Eventually, the couple started dating, and they were expecting their first baby just a few months later.
Although Biniyam seems like a caring and loving boyfriend, his past does raise some eyebrows. Before Ariela came into his life, he was married to an American woman and had a son with her. However, for unknown reasons, she returned to the United States and forbade Biniyam from seeing their son. A similar situation happened with Ariela when she returned to America for their son’s hernia surgery. Biniyam refused to take her calls, and allegedly cheated on her. Ariela gives fans more reasons to get frustrated, so Biniyam’s shady actions go largely unnoticed.
Ariela may not be one of the most beloved cast members in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, but she still seems to be a better partner than Biniyam. The 31-year-old reality star Biniyam has two sons with two different American women, and wants to have more babies, even though he doesn’t have a stable income, or any clue about how to handle his finances. Fans are annoyed with Biniyam’s immature behavior, and one of them with the username micksies wrote on Reddit, “I doubt he’s ever made in real money. Even though he had all these “jobs” I would think it’s pocket change or no money at all.”
Since Ariela’s mother Janice Weinberg has been helping the couple financially for a very long time, it now seems that Biniyam has become used to that treatment. He isn’t worried about how he will earn money for his family, and is strongly focused on pursuing his MMA career, which may or may not work out for him. The Ethiopian reality star wants to become an MMA fighter in America, but overlooks how expensive his diet, training, and gym fees might be. Another Redditor, dasuberblonde, added, “He has the mentality of a 12-year-old boy instead of the mentality of a man who needs to pay the rent and support his family.”
Since Biniyam isn’t acting like a responsible partner, some fans believe that he is just using Ariela for a Green Card. During one of the 90 Day Fiancé season 9 episodes, he blatantly mentioned that if his relationship with Ariela didn’t work out, she could still help him with his Green Card application. 90 Day Fiancé viewers hope that Biniyam will take his responsibilities seriously, and talk about his marital issues with Ariela, instead of running away from them.
