Avery, a 19-year-old former Christian who recently converted to Islam from Columbus, OH, and Omar, a 24-year-old Muslim man from Syria, met on a Muslim dating app.

Avery, who was once a cheerleader and gymnast who dressed sexy, converted to Islam six months before meeting Omar in order to show off her inner beauty rather than outer beauty. She had a total transformation, and it shocked her mother Teri as well as her stepfather, siblings and grandparents.

Omar's dating profile initially said he lived in America, but once Avery found out he was living in Syria, she continued with the relationship anyway.

Since a war is going on in Syria, Avery's loved ones feared Omar's intentions and Avery's future with him, but she was "already hooked."

After just one month of talking, Omar asked Avery to marry him, and he sent her an engagement ring in the mail.

Avery therefore planned to fly to Lebanon to finally meet her fiance in person and get married. The couple decided on Lebanon since it would be a safer, nicer place to meet for the first time.

Avery trusted Omar and hoped to bring him to the United States on a visa between 9 months and three years due to the travel ban from Syria.

Teri feared, however, Omar was just using her daughter for a Green Card to escape a warzone. But since Teri knew she wouldn't be able to stop her strong-willed daughter, she traveled to Lebanon with Avery in order to make sure she'd be safe.

Little did Teri know, however, Avery's long-term plan was to live in Syria with Omar after marrying him until his spousal visa to come to the U.S. gets approved. Omar, a dentist, had two years of schooling left in order to become an oral surgeon.

"I don't think I can be apart from him for however long this visa takes," Avery said, adding that she loved Omar and that's all there was to it.

Once Avery and Teri arrived in Lebanon after about 30 hours of travel, Avery was more than thrilled to jump into Omar's arms. She considered him to be perfect and her soul mate.

The pair embraced and Avery gushed about how Omar was so "cute" and "handsome," and he agreed Avery was even "more beautiful" in person.

He then brought Avery and Teri to their hotel room, given he and Avery were not allowed to sleep in the same room or even kiss due to the rules of their culture and religion.

Avery, Teri and Omar went shopping for a wedding dress the next day, and Avery picked out a beautiful, appropriate "Halal" dress for to wear.

The dress, however, was very conservative, and Teri was sad Avery was no longer ambitious and independent.

Teri couldn't believe Avery was okay with a man telling her what to do and what to wear, but Teri predicted Avery would grow tired of being submissive and then her relationship would fall apart.

Avery argued her mother simply didn't embrace or understand how much she had changed her life when she had converted to Islam.

But Teri didn't think Avery knew what she was getting herself into. Teri said she read a Muslim handbook, for example, and learned a man can hit his wife and the wife is a "prisoner" in her own home, which she found really disturbing.

Omar joked he wouldn't lay a hand on Avery as long as she was "nice," but Teri said Avery was going to be mean more than she's going to be nice.

But Avery said hitting a woman would be disrespectful and Omar wasn't that type of guy.

During Avery's second full day in Lebanon, she learned Omar had let her down by not making any wedding plans. Omar apparently didn't have a list of numbers, nor did he have a venue or priest booked for their ceremony, which was supposed to be the following day. 

Omar insisted he had tried his best and didn't get responses from people, but Avery wasn't happy.

"I don't know why Omar is dragging his feet. For me, all I want is to marry him, and so if I was in his position, I would be doing nothing, nonstop until I had a place and a time I'm getting married. I just hope Omar is everything I thought he was," Avery told the cameras.

However, Avery still wanted to marry Omar, and the pair discussed living in Syria during their first date together away from Teri.

"The situation in Syria, it's different -- the power, the water are all cut off all the time. It will be hard," Omar explained. "As an American girl or someone from a different country, it's going to be hard."

Omar wanted Avery to move to Syria with him, but he wasn't sure she'd be happy. He knew they would have to struggle in Syria, and he feared Avery might hate her life there and then leave him.

All Avery knew was that she didn't want to be away from Omar for long. She didn't want to wait to see him again after they tied the knot.

"I'm not going to wait years to see him. I know there's a war in Syria and, yeah, that's a little bit scary. But Omar is making do with it; I feel I can make do with it as well," Avery said in a confessional.

Avery had her mind set and said she'd move in July, but she had yet to share this news with her mother.

Omar and Teri later settled on a $6,000 dowry under Islamic law. Teri didn't like the idea of having to "sell" her daughter, but she later came to understand the money was to support Avery in the case of divorce or her husband's death.

The night before Avery's wedding, Teri needed to have a talk with her because Teri felt Avery was "naive" and "easily manipulated."

Teri suggested Omar had been looking for an American woman to marry and he swept her off her feet incredibly quickly, but Avery insisted they didn't necessarily have to live in America, as Dubai or Middle Eastern countries were options as well.

Avery said once Omar began working as a periodontist, he'd be able to obtain a visa and they could live anywhere together. Avery was sick of people accusing Omar of putting on a show because she whole-heartedly believed his intentions were pure.

Avery was tired of defending Omar all the time, and she wanted her mother to see their connection was "genuine."

"Just because he's Syrian does not mean he is using me," Avery said. "I'm marrying him tomorrow... Either I'm right or I'm right, and we'll just have to see eventually."

Avery and Omar were then shown getting married after rushing around to receive approval from the Islamic court hours before their ceremony in a mosque.

Avery didn't care about how small her wedding was or the fact only her mother was there -- she said it was the wedding of her dreams.

Omar also said it was "a dream come true" to get married at the mosque, even though his own family couldn't be there.

Teri wanted to be a witness for her daughter's wedding but she wasn't allowed to because a witness needed to be one man or two women. Teri didn't think Avery understood what she was getting herself into.

Avery also was not able to exchange vows with Omar due to Islamic law and Muslim culture, but she was so thrilled to marry the love of her life. Both Avery and Omar were smiling ear to ear after the ceremony, and they both gushed about the joy and happiness they felt.

That joy quickly turned into dismay for Teri, however, when Avery revealed at dinner that night she'd be moving to Syria until Omar's visa to move to the United States would be approved. 

Teri was angry and terrified because Avery wouldn't speak the language, nor was Syria a safe place for her to live. Teri said Avery couldn't even go to an ATM without help and all she'd be able to do in Syria is be Omar's housewife.

"Is it better now because they're not gassing people?" Teri cried. "I don't want her to be caught up in all that!"

Avery said she'd be moving to Syria regardless, and then Teri cut the dinner short and decided to leave and head to the airport to go home. Avery asked Omar to talk to Teri, but Teri ran off.

Avery was concerned this news would ruin her relationship with her mother forever.

Teri accused Avery of lying to her over and over again about her planned move to Syria. Avery apologized, but she said there was nothing Teri could do about it because she had made up her mind.

Avery said upon returning to the United States, she'd get a lawyer and apply for a marriage visa, but if the process takes longer than a year, she'd be moving to Syria.

Omar said he'd never take his wife to a place where she would be unsafe.

"Now that I've met Omar, I'm glad she married him. I just don't want her to live in Syria. When I get back to the United States, I'm going to do whatever I can to help him get a visa, but I don't think she should move to Syria. I have a few months," Teri said in a confessional.

"I'm hoping that I can talk her out of it. I'll fight her tooth and nail. I'll be there to stop her."

Avery hated to see her mother leaving "sad and scared," but Avery said she had her own life to live and she's an adult at age 19. She wanted to start her life with Omar.

That night, Avery and Omar went into the same hotel room together. Avery said Omar was about to see her hair for the first time and they both hoped the night would be everything they had dreamed about.

The next day, Avery gushed about how her wedding night was perfect and Omar's performance in bed was perfect. She felt closer to her husband and said they definitely "clicked," but Omar admitted his first kiss was "weird."

Avery had five days left in Lebanon, and the pair still had to get to know each other better.

Over lunch, Avery said she's the type of person who dances in the street and is loud, but Omar said she must not behave that way when they're in public together -- regardless of whether they're in his country or in the United States.

"You must stop it," Omar said.

"No, I don't," Avery replied.

"I don't like it when you dance in public," Omar noted. "It's not good to see girl dance in street... Wherever."

Avery looked upset, but Omar said if she was going to be his wife in his culture, he'd have to tell her what is right and what is wrong.

"If we have an argument, she should be quiet," Omar told the cameras, adding that his wife was headstrong.

"I'm never quiet. I don't care to be quiet," Avery said.

After only a few days of being married, Avery had reached her last day in Lebanon.

Avery said she loved being in a Muslim country and being with Omar felt like home.

The pair watched a sunset at the beach, and Avery asked if their relationship could make it "until July." Omar said they must remain positive about their future, and he intended to remain emotionally stable as a man.

Avery and Omar then enjoyed their last meal together at a restaurant, and she was dreading the time she must leave her husband. Avery was frustrated, however, Omar wasn't expressing any emotion about her leaving.

"I don't need you to cry; I need you to talk to me. I'm not going to see you for months. I love you so, so much, and I know you love me. But I don't want to be used," Avery told her husband. "There's always that one percent chance."

Omar promised he wasn't using Avery, but she felt doubtful about his feelings for her because he wasn't emotional about her traveling back to America.

Omar said he was sad but he's "not the kind of person" who cries due to his culture.

"I'm heartbroken too, and I never lie," Omar told his wife.

The couple discussed how they would miss each other so much, but Avery felt they could get through anything together because of their love. She just feared being apart from Omar for so long because she thought they deserved to be together.

Avery then had to say goodbye to Omar, and 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days showed her getting to the airport before she boarded a 30-hour flight back to America.

Avery and Omar expressed their love for one another, and then Avery broke down into tears before walking to security. Avery wished she could stay with her husband, but she said she'd remember her time with him forever.

"I'll remember this trip for the rest of my life. Every second I had with Omar, I am grateful for, and I hope and I pray I get more," Avery said, adding that there was a chance she might never see him again.

Once Avery's plane landed in Columbus, she told the cameras she'd definitely be moving to Syria despite objections from her parents.

"I'm going -- and I'm not coming back [to the U.S.] until he comes with me. I don't want to hurt them, but it's something I've got to do," Avery said in a confessional.

Once Avery returned to Columbus, OH, she and Teri met with an immigration lawyer together so she could get the visa started and hopefully bring Omar over to the United States.

Avery insisted Omar was a good man with no criminal record, but since he lived in Syria, the lawyer said, "Unfortunately, he wouldn't be able to get a visa because the government is prevented from issuing visas" to the citizens of that country.

"But we can request a waiver so that the travel ban may be waived for him," the lawyer added. "However, the waiver process, it's really uncertain how long it may take -- if at all."

A typical case apparently takes about a year, but the lawyer said this case could take significantly longer since a travel-ban was in place. He also told Avery that less that five percent of travel-ban cases are actually approved for a waiver.

Avery started crying at the meeting and vented to her mother, "I don't want him over there!... I'm just worried about him. I'm sorry... I was expecting good news. I don't know why."

The lawyer told Avery that they could still try and start the application process because applications were still being accepted and were just remaining pending and not actually being denied.

The lawyer added that if Avery moved to Syria, it would lower her chances of obtaining a waiver.

Avery had to show she lived in the United States, made money in the U.S., and could support her spouse if he happened to move here. The lawyer also said separation would prove hardship for the couple, which would only better Avery's chances of getting what she wanted.

"Do you think going over there and ruining his chances of coming here is worth you going over [to Syria] for a few months?" Teri asked her daughter.

"I'm scared," Avery replied as her cried in her hands.

Teri wanted Avery to be with her husband, but she said Avery was still young and immature and just jumped into things without knowing the consequences.

Avery decided to start the process immediately even though chances of it working were slim.

"At this point, I'm married to someone -- I don't know if I'll ever actually be with him. We have a lot of plans and we were really excited and thought everything was finally pulling into place," Avery cried in a confessional.

"This is not the news I expected to hear."

Avery determined she and Omar must find another place to live together, even if the location wouldn't be desirable or ideal.

Avery suggested Qatar, Dubai or Kuwait as possible options, but Teri didn't want to say goodbye to her daughter.

Avery struggled with what to do next because she didn't want to leave her family behind either. Avery wanted to watch her brother grow up and would miss her mother terribly.

Avery realized that in order to start a family of her own, she'd have to neglect and leave behind the family she already had, and that left Avery feeling very emotional.

Did Avery and Omar reunite in Syria? What's the latest on Avery and Omar's relationship since they filmed the 90 Day Fiance spinoff?

Are Avery and Omar still together? Did the 90 Day Fiance couple reunite in Syria?

After getting married on February 11, 2019, Avery and Omar are still together. However, the couple seems to have been continuing to stay in Lebanon together instead of living in Syria, where Avery had originally planned to live with Omar until he received U.S. approval to come to America.

The decision to stay in Lebanon until Omar's spousal visa is approved is presumably because it's currently much safer than Syria, which is currently a warzone.

However, it is unclear how long Lebanon's immigration laws allow Avery or Omar to remain in the country.

In mid-October, Avery also took to her Instagram Stories defending Omar and their relationship. She suggested their marriage is healthy and solid.

"I do have to say something I don't usually respond to. Any comments -- I hate when people say Omar is controlling," Avery said in a video she posted.

"I'm sorry, but Omar asked me not to dance in the street because it's not normal. It's not being controlling."

She added, "To be honest, people have their preferences. If he doesn't want someone that dances in the street, trust me, it's fine -- we do enough dancing at home!"

Avery was referring to the scene from 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days' September 29 episode in which Omar disapproved of Avery's desire to be loud and dance in the streets.

In her Instagram Stories posting, Avery also slammed speculation Omar does not reciprocate her strong feelings for him.

"For someone to say that Omar does not love me, [that person] does not know Omar," Avery told her followers in the video.

"He is the most loving person ever. Yeah, he's shy, and he's shy when he's getting recorded for international TV shows -- which, I bet, a lot more people would be shy too -- but get you a man that sings Ed Sheeran to you, that plays with your hair any time, that spoils you with love and, you know, anything that you want."

Avery continued, "Get someone that will protect you at all costs and maybe you'll know how much Omar loves me."

Finally, Avery shut down her haters by saying, "And last but not least, if you don't like me, then that's a personal problem."

On October 7, Avery also gushed about her relationship by posting a photo of Omar's hand holding her left hand. Their wedding rings were shown in the photo.

"It's been over a year since we met, time really flew by. Who would've thought when we first met each other online how far we would go for eachother. 6000 miles never stopped us," Avery captioned the photo.

And in early October, Avery posted photos of Omar and herself enjoying a sunset at the beach.

The couple has also launched a new online store together at albakourkouture.com.

The website reads, "Albakour Kouture is an online accessory store that's built by a couple that found each other from 6,000 miles away. Omar is from Syria and Avery is from the United States. Avery traveled to Beirut, Lebanon to meet and marry Omar."

"Avery fell in love with the beautiful handmade products made and sold in the middle east. Together they thought of Albakour Kouture an online store that will help people like you get your hands on one of kind items from the other side of the world!"

Avery initially hinted she'd be starting an online store in her Instagram Stories in late August.

"It's an online store I am opening soon in Sha Allah... mostly selling accessories/fashion items from Middle East," Avery wrote in an Instagram Stories posting in August.

"In Sha Allah" is not the name of a place or location but means "God willing" in Arabic.

Avery had asked her followers what types of Middle Eastern goods they'd like to buy in the store, and they gave her suggestions such as prayer rugs and hand-made soap.

Avery seemed to unintentionally disclose she's living in Lebanon in one of her replies, writing, "That's actually good. Lebanon has amazing olive oil soaps!!!"

She also clearly took Omar's last name, Albakour, suggesting they are still married.

The Instagram account is also filled with more happy photos of Avery and Omar.

On September 28, Avery posted a funny video of Omar trying to sing the song "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," and she captioned the post with three heart emojis.

Three days earlier, Avery shared a few photos from her wedding day.

And back on September 20, Avery posted a photo of the couple on a boat, and she was holding a red rose.

Avery also shared a cute, although blurry photo, of Omar and herself on September 16 and captioned it, "Polaroid Quality But tbh I love to keep photos like this in my wallet."

Avery probably wouldn't keep a photo like that in her wallet if they had broken up!

On September 14, Avery posted a selfie of Omar and herself and wrote alongside it, "I admire the ones who would Climb any mountain and swim any ocean to see the one they love," with a red heart emoji.

That same day, Avery shared a photo from the day she first met Omar and teased their wedding as follows: "Either I'm naive or I'm right, guess we will just have to wait and see."

And on September 10, Avery suggested she was still living in a different country other than the United States.

"'Idk she hasn't been Muslim in the summer yet' proud to say the hijab never came off no matter how much I thought I was gonna have a heat stroke," Avery captioned a photo of herself with a young girl.

In addition, Avery and Omar shared a couple of selfies of themselves on September 2 with no caption. 

Fans can also see a variety of throwback pictures and the couple's first selfie that were all posted in late August.

Some fans speculated whether Avery ended her relationship with Omar since she was recently photographed in New York City with her 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days co-stars and without Omar, but it seems she was only in New York to film the Tell All special that will air soon on TLC.

It's not a surprise Omar wouldn't attend the Tell-All in-person with Avery given the restrictions the United States currently has in place for Syria citizens.
