90 Day Fiance: Why Money Is Putting Stephanie And Ryan's Relationship In Jeopardy

90 Day Fiance is the gift that keeps on giving. It's also the drama that keeps on serving. The cringe that keeps on dishing... you get the drift. The TLC reality show is so undeniably addictive because the relationships can be so intense, especially if an episode features Stephanie Davison and Ryan Carr.

On the episode that aired on Feb. 14, 2021, Stephanie was a long way from her home in Michigan and instead was showcasing her hula-hooping skills on the beach in Belize with Ryan. While it sounds like a particularly cheerful setting, the episode captured some major issues between the couple. Fans have been doubting their relationship for a long time and the fact that Stephanie previously hooked up with Ryan's cousin didn't help the situation.

So obviously the conflict between the two goes on. Ryan won't propose to Stephanie and fans have secret hunches for why Ryan really wants to move to the U.S. With all of this momentous tension behind them, the Feb. 14 episode captured more tension between them and this time it was all about money.

Stephanie Davison threatened a reimbursement from Ryan Carr and his family

Fans of 90 Day Fiance and those who have followed Stephanie Davison and Ryan Carr's relationship know that Stephanie secretly paid Ryan's wages at a resort. Stephanie owns two medical spas called Skin Envy in Michigan, according to In Touch Weekly. She's been paying the bills for Ryan and his family in Belize, which was especially needed when the coronavirus pandemic hit.

But on the episode that aired on Feb. 14, 2021, Stephanie wanted to know what Ryan's mother thought of their engagement and financial resentments started to come up, according to TV Insider. The specific problem, as Stephanie saw it, was that Ryan's mother wasn't grateful enough for her help. In fact, Stephanie threatened to ask for the money back. "When I share my money, I expect an 'I appreciate that, thank you,'" Stephanie said to Ryan. "That's when I said, 'hey, she's not going to be grateful, I'm going to ask for the money back.'"

There were other topics that amped up the tension, though. Stephanie had seen a psychic previously who told her that Ryan would leave her for a younger woman so that they could have children, thus pleasing Ryan's mother.

Then, in true tantalizing fashion, TLC ended the episode with Ryan running out of their hotel room. Stephanie screams: "Are you afraid of the truth, Ryan? Why would you do that to me? With whose money? Ryan, oh my God are you kidding me!"
