Why 90 Day Fiance's Syngin Might've Put His Marriage To Tania In Jeopardy

Loyal viewers of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 5 have been well aware of Tania Maduro and Syngin Colchester's problems throughout the season. The pair has been vocal about their issues — particularly Colchester's alleged drinking problem and the topic of having children.

The season finale of the TLC show concluded in the episode, "Tell All Part 3," which aired in October 2020. While this ep focused on Maduro and Colchester's ongoing conversation about having kids or not, let's first bring viewers up to speed about the first obstacle in their marriage: Maduro's belief that Colchester has a drinking problem, which he denies.

In part two of the tell-all special, Maduro claimed that the South Africa-born Colchester "couldn't get the work visa [in the United States] because of your drinking, because they called your last job," according to People. Colchester immediately defended himself, retorting: " ... You make it sound crazy! I got drunk at a bar two years ago in South Africa and they called my...," he trailed off. "We are allowed to take shots ... and there was somebody being very rude."

Now, in part three of the tell-all, Colchester and Maduro fought about their warring opinions about having children.

Is Syngin Colchester's decision not to have children a deal-breaker for Tania Maduro?

Syngin Colchester and Tania Maduro's already shaky marriage was put to the test on the October 2020 episode, "Tell-All Part 3." During the eye-opening ep, host Shaun Robinson questioned the couple about having children in the future — a sore subject between the two, given that Maduro has been emphatic about wanting kids, whereas Colchester has expressed his reservations.

"I don't see myself having a child," Colchester told the host, a direct statement that surprised Maduro, according to TV Shows Ace — though he had previously seemed to convey as much in earlier episodes, particularly during their trip to Colchester's home country of South Africa (as per Showbiz Cheat Sheet). During that episode, when Maduro brought up the subject of raising children in South Africa (or not), Colchester wondered if kids were even in their future at all. "Who says that's even gonna happen?" he questioned at the time.

In the tell-all, Colchester was noncommittal when questioned if he'd want children "five years from now," TV Shows Ace reported. Maduro, however, was adamant that she couldn't wait that long. 

As for what this means for the couple — who are seemingly still together as of October 2020, as based on their social media posts — we will just have to wait to find out.
