Rebecca:
LAST NIGHT I MET ZIED’S SISTER, BUT I DON’T THINK
THE NIGHT WENT WELL. OH, MY GOSH, BABY. YES. ZIED, THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. MY GOAL IS TO GET ENGAGED
AND BRING ZIED BACK TO AMERICA, BUT I’VE GOT SO MANY WORRIES
CONSIDERING HOW HIS SISTER FEELS AND HIS PARENTS’ DOUBTS
ABOUT ME. [ SPEAKS
NATIVE LANGUAGE ] SO I’M HAVING DOUBTS
ABOUT THE STRENGTH OF OUR RELATIONSHIP RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU
ABOUT SOMETHING. UM… I’VE NEVER LOVED ANYONE
THE WAY THAT I LOVE YOU. AND, LIKE,
WHEN I MEET YOU ONLINE AND I FALL
IN LOVE WITH YOU, I DON’T THINK ABOUT
YOUR FAMILY NOT ACCEPTING ME, BUT THERE
IS A LOT ABOUT ME THAT — THAT THEY WISH
WAS DIFFERENT. AND ONCE
I GO BACK TO AMERICA AND WE START
THIS VISA PROCESS, I’M WORRIED THAT YOU TALK
TO YOUR SISTER AND SHE TELL YOU,
“YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS IS NOT GOOD.
YOU NEED TO STAY IN TUNISIA.” THIS SOMETHING NEW
FOR MY FAMILY. NO MATTER WHAT. IT DOESN’T MATTER
WHAT I TELL YOU OR WHAT YOU KNOW
ABOUT ME. ALL HE KEEPS SAYING IS,
“I LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT.” AND THE MORE HE’S SAYING THIS,
THE MORE I REALIZE, “LOOK, YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ME.” YOU KNOW, WE’VE ONLY
BEEN TOGETHER LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. THERE’S STILL A LOT ABOUT ME
YOU DON’T KNOW. THERE ARE THINGS THAT
MAY MAKE YOU NOT HAPPY. I WANT YOU TO KNOW
EVERYTHING IN MY PAST, IN MY HISTORY
AND STILL LOVE ME. THE BIG THING THAT
I’M KEEPING FROM ZIED RIGHT NOW IS THE FACT THAT I’M STILL
TECHNICALLY MARRIED TO MY EX, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ELSE THAT
I’VE BEEN KEEPING ABOUT MY PAST. IT’S SOMETHING FORBIDDEN
IN ZIED’S CULTURE, AND I’M JUST REALLY SCARED
OF HOW HE’S GONNA REACT. I JUST HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT
THAT I WANT TO TELL YOU AND MAKE SURE
YOU STILL LOVE ME. ♪♪ I HAD A RELATIONSHIP
WITH A WOMAN. WHAT?
