Viewers are still unsure what to think of these two as of this season 90 days fiancé: Before the 90 days unfolds.
Even before Memphis arrived in Tunisia, Hamza lied to her about her sleeping arrangements.
She took it in stride, though it led to the two being busted by Hamza’s mother. Awkward!
Now Memphis learns that Hamza has been lying to her all along – about something as basic as his age.
Memphis Smith is a 34-year-old woman. She is the mother of two small children.
She is generally not in an age group or place in life where she expects to have to hide her sexual activity from someone’s parents.
In fact, as a mother, she’s probably more used to hiding things from her children.
When Memphis flew out to Tunisia, she did not realize she had to sneak around like a teenager with strict parents.
Hamza had not told her that his mother, Hayet, wanted them not to share the same room.
In fact, she hoped they would completely avoid sex until they got married – something he was not so keen on.
Memphis was nonetheless happy to comply with Hayet’s wishes while she stayed under her roof.
She did not understand why Hamza did not just want to stay at the hotel during her visit.
But she was keen to keep her future mother-in-law happy and make a good impression.
Hamza – and his penis – had other ideas.
He apparently invited himself into his room (where Memphis lived while he was supposed to fall on the couch) to get a connection.
Hayet found it to be deeply awkward, and Memphis found the sex disappointing.
Memphis has had relationships in the past where she let a lack of sexual compatibility slip, but she did not want to do it again.
Hamza has apparently only boned her for a short time, but explained that he only cuddled quickly because he had not had sex for so long.
To the cameras, Hamza just said Memphis was too sexy for him to hold back.
But in season 5, episode 6 of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Memphis awaits another surprise.
As the scene in this sneak peek begins, Memphis reacts to Hamza’s real age.
He had told her he was 28. The truth, his family reveals, is that he is 26.
“Earlier, Hamza’s sister and I had a conversation, and she happened to say, ‘Yes, Hamza is three years older than me,'” Memphis explains.
She continues, “I said, ‘How old are you?’ She says, ’23 and Hamza is 26! ‘ I thought Hamza recently turned 28. “
Memphis admits, “I feel like he somehow betrayed me in a way, for who wants to be lied to?”
“He told me last year that he just turned 28,” Memphis tells Hamza’s mother and sister.
“So he lied,” she continues. “What else is he not telling the truth about?”
Memphis explains the problem: “So you lied. And we have plans for what, go to the embassy tomorrow and make marriage papers?”
“Now I do not know how I feel about it because you lied.” expresses Memphis.
She tells him she needs some time to think about this.
It is, after all, a man who barely speaks her language, but who has used it to deliberately lie to her more than once.
Hamza’s mother is Team Hamza on this, and thinks Memphis is blowing it out of proportion.
Maybe it’s because the little discrepancy of his age strikes her as a little white lie and ultimately harmless.
It’s a sign of immaturity and, combined with his other fibs, dishonesty that could be a dealbreaker for Memphis.
