[90 Day Fiance Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers revealing if Ariela and Biniyam are still together and married or if the pair has split up.]

Ariela, a 29-year-old well-traveled freelance writer from Princeton, NJ, introduced herself on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

And after going through a difficult divorce, Ariela said she wanted to get to know herself better and see the world -- so she booked a cheap trip to Ethiopia.

Ariela stumbled across Biniyam while she was waiting for a taxi outside of her hotel. She yelled at the attractive man at the time, "Don't I know you from somewhere?!" And she joked it actually worked to pick Biniyam up.

Biniyam, nicknamed "Baby" at 31 years old, is a dancer, choreographer, martial artist and gymnast from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Ariela said she didn't want a boyfriend at the time so she did her best to avoid Biniyam but she kept finding herself wanting to spend time with him.

"After dating for three months, I got some unexpected news. I found out I was pregnant," Ariela revealed, adding that she was scared and returned to America for prenatal care.

Ariela, however, eventually moved back to Ethiopia so she could live with her boyfriend permanently and raise their son together.

Ariela said waiting on Biniyam's K-1 visa would take too long, and she was six months pregnant when filming the show.

But Ariela had her concerns about their language, different culture and the hospital where she intended to deliver her son.

Ariela's family was also worried Biniyam was after a Green Card since he had been married to an American woman before and the pair also welcomed a son together who recently turned three years old.

Biniyam told Ariela that he wasn't on speaking terms with his ex, who supposedly moved back to the United States with Biniyam's first-born son.

Biniyam said he was married to the previous American woman for four years but he was only with her for "six to eight months."

Ariela and Biniyam also follow different religions, with Ariela being raised Jewish and Biniyam being an Ethiopian-Orthodox Christian.

Ariela said she was making "the biggest and riskiest decision" of her life because she was giving up so much to be with him.

When Ariela met Biniyam, he was living with his brother and sister-in-law in a one-bedroom house. His siblings apparently took care of him since he was the youngest.

Ariela had high expectations when she moved to Ethiopia, and she was terribly disappointed by the dirty and moldy apartment Biniyam had found for them.

It took time for Ariela and Biniyam to find a suitable apartment in Ariela's mind because she required running water and electricity, but Ariela's mother approved of the hospital Ariela would be delivering her baby in.

But Ariela and Biniyam faced problems as Ariela attempted to adjust to life in Ethiopia.

Biniyam wanted to baptize their son in his religion, and Biniyam's loved ones put a lot of pressure on Ariela to convert to being an Orthodox Christian. Ariela also struggled with homesickness once Janice returned to the United States.

"I'm not looking forward to being alone with you. I am not happy about it," Ariela confessed to Biniyam in tears. "I am not happy about it... I don't want to hurt your feelings, but I feel like you don't know me at all or understand me."

"It'll be okay. I love you. I want to make family with you. I want to be a good father, I promise. But don't leave me," Biniyam begged his girlfriend.

Ariela ultimately decided she really wanted to make her marriage work and loved Biniyam, even though she knew they'd struggle financially without a car in Ethiopia.

Ariela and Biniyam later learned their baby was breech and Ariela's amniotic fluid was low and so Ariela must undergo an emergency C-section, which was not a common procedure in Ethiopia.

"I have never been more scared in my life. My family is not here... I wish more than anything in the world that my mother was here," Ariela told her parents on the phone. "I am about to have abdominal surgery in a place that's very underdeveloped. I don't know what's going to happen."

Once Ariela woke up from general anesthesia, she said becoming a mother was "amazing and shocking," and she immediately fell in love with her son, whom they later named Aviel Biniyam Shibre.

Ariela made Biniyam walk home with their baby since they didn't have a car seat, and the pair had a warm welcome at home. (Although Ariela didn't appreciate watching a sheep be slaughtered in her honor).

Despite her initial opposition, Ariela came around to the idea of baptizing her son in Biniyam's faith in order to show her love and willingness to compromise.

However, Biniyam pushed to have Aviel circumcised, and Ariela was furious about feeling pushed to go through with the procedure that made her baby cry.

"I feel like I didn't really have a choice," Ariela told Biniyam. "I am doing this because of the pressure I got from you."

Ariela admitted she felt like she had "made the wrong decision" in choosing to change her son's body without his consent.

"If I can't even put my foot down and I don't have control over the situation, then I can't be a good mom," Ariela told the cameras.

Biniyam was upset because Ariela's trust in him was low and she didn't seem to have much confidence in him, which made him worry about the future of their relationship.

When Ariela's son Aviel was two weeks old, Biniyam had returned to work in order to support his family. Ariela felt like Biniyam was "working nonstop," and while she appreciated him making money for his family, she wished he could stay home more and spend more time with his baby.

Ariela also seemed a little annoyed she was stuck at home while he got to spend time at the club dancing with beautiful women all night.

"I do trust him in a lot of ways, but I think as human beings, there is always temptation to cheat," Ariela told the cameras.

"People are weak and stupid, and I'm no exception. And I hate to say it, but [Biniyam] is no exception. We make mistakes, and I don't want some dumb mistake to affect us forever."

Ariela said a woman had called Biniyam and when Ariela called her back on the phone, the woman hung up when she heard English being spoken. Ariela wondered if Biniyam was lying and cheating on her, but Biniyam said, "I have no idea what you are talking about."

Ariela never considered herself a jealous person before, but she said Biniyam pushed her to the limits sometimes.

"He's always kind of portraying me as the bad one and I'm a b-tch, but he doesn't tell me anything and we're not communicating. We are more like roommates with a baby," Ariela explained in a confessional.

Ariela then asked to see Biniyam's phone, and he took a minute to look through it first. Ariela called Biniyam "an assh-le" and grabbed the phone out of his hand.

Biniyam accused Ariela of freaking out for no reason and gave her permission to call all the numbers in his phone.

It also rubbed Ariela the wrong way when Biniyam revealed he had to work the night he was supposed to spend time with her parents, Janice and Fred Weinberg.

"This is not okay," Ariela said, as she wondered whether Biniyam was actually meeting up  with another woman. "I am really pissed off... My parents are coming to meet him and meet our family, and he's just going to leave? I am so disappointed right now."

Ariela told Biniyam he looked like a jerk, like he didn't "give a f-ck," and she told her man "to do better" because he was failing to make her happy.

When Fred saw how underdeveloped Ethiopia was, he worried about his grandson growing up and playing in the streets. He also noticed Ariela and Biniyam needed to communicate better.

And although Biniyam was proud of his luxurious apartment, saying it was a nicer place than anywhere else he's lived before, Janice suggested the couple needed a bigger apartment.

"It doesn't fit the requirements we expect for our daughter and our grandson," Janice told the cameras.

Ariela's parents were concerned about Ariela not having enough support from friends or family in Ethiopia, and they also advised Biniyam to find a more stable and secure job with consistent pay rather than his nights at the club making $400-$500 each shift.

Fred came to the conclusion Ariela and Biniyam were in love and wanted to make a life together, but he acknowledged there was "a lot of uncertainty" in regards to their future together, and Janice didn't think Ethiopia would be a great place for Avi to grow up.

"I'm not sure Ariela even realizes how much she's sacrificing to be here in Ethiopia. I really feel there's a lot of family pressure from his side and she has no support for her own opinions," Janice told the cameras before she returned to the U.S.

Janice promised to help Ariela in any way possible, and Ariela confirmed she wanted to stay in Ethiopia and raise her son with his father around.

"Am I making the right decision about where to live? I don't know, but I definitely want Avi to be with his father. That's no question," Ariela said in a confessional.

"Things are not going to be easy, but when you love someone, you try to work through the hard stuff. This is the decision I have made, and I'm sticking to it."

Ariela and Biniyam later went to Biniyam's Ethiopian-Orthodox church to baptize Aviel as a Christian. Ariela got dressed up in traditional attire and hoped Biniyam was thankful and appreciative.

A celebration then followed and Biniyam's loved ones wished the family wealth and good fortune.

"I was 100 percent pressured into baptizing Avi," Ariela said.

"But I actually feel good that I agreed to do this, because at the end of the day, while it wasn't a pleasant experience for me, I'm going to hold the memory of Biniyam and his family's happiness forever."

Ariela and Biniyam then got engaged while attending a celebration for the baptism of Jesus Christ, which is a holiday in Ethiopia.

Ariela realized in that moment how much she loved Biniyam even though they fought pretty frequently.

Biniyam said the past year with Ariela had been "terrible" but "nice" at the same time, recalling how it had been difficult to please Ariela and satisfy her demanding mother.

Ariela hired a nanny, Mimi, and she and Biniyam had moved into a three-bedroom house together. Ariela gushed about child-help being only $200 a month, but she admitted it was really hard for Biniyam because there wasn't much more amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Biniyam hadn't been working much due to COVID-19 and Ariela's parents were helping them out financially.

Mimi taught Ariela how to cook Ethiopian dishes, and Ariela gushed about the nanny being a part of her family and close friend who had been helping her so much.

Biniyam occasionally spent time with his friends and was out all night, and Ariela was missing out on "deep relationships" in Ethiopia -- although she was happy for "the most part."

Ariela therefore asked her ex-husband Leandro to visit her in Ethiopia, both so she could have a friend and her husband could meet her best friend from the U.S.

Mimi thought it was strange Ariela was about to spend time with her ex-husband given that's a foreign concept in Ethiopia and divorced spouses are no longer in contact with each other, and Ariela could tell Biniyam felt "a little macho and territorial" about her.

"So I'm not sure they're going to get along," Ariela noted. "I'm not sure how he's going to react [to Leandro] face to face."

Ariela had met Leandro when she studied in Argentina at age 19. They got married after six months together and then she brought him to the United States on a spousal visa.

Ariela said she and Leandro were married for 10 years but she wanted to travel more and Leandro wanted to focus on earning his doctorate. The former spouses therefore broke up but decided to stay best friends.

Leandro told Ariela that he was excited to see her and meet Biniyam. He anticipated a fun trip, but Ariela anticipated Biniyam was going to be jealous of her strong unbreakable connection with her ex-husband.

Biniyam admitted Leandro visiting was "uncomfortable" for him, and he told the cameras he wasn't happy at all. Biniyam worried about Ariela and Leandro's tight bond and the fact Leandro could possibly convince her to return to the United States.

Biniyam confessed to Ariela that he was "jealous," especially because Ariela would say she "loves" Leandro, but only as a best friend.

"We are not together for a reason," Ariela insisted to her fiance.

"I don't want to lose you again, just like my last relationship," Biniyam explained. "I want to protect my family."

Biniyam said he didn't want to lose another child and another marriage, as he had previously been married to an American who left him and moved back to the United States.

Biniyam's sisters appeared shocked to hear about Leandro's upcoming visit, and Biniyam explained how he didn't have much of a choice in the matter.

Ariela also apparently didn't tell Biniyam that Leandro had stayed at her house alone when she was four or five months pregnant for two weeks, which apparently upset Biniyam. Ariela had told Biniyam's sister that in confidence and so she wasn't happy.

Biniyam worried Ariela was hiding something or had maybe slept with Leandro during his stay, but Ariela insisted that wasn't the case and they had stayed in two separate rooms.

Ariela compared her relationship with Leandro to a brother and sister, but Biniyam was admittedly very suspicious of the pair's connection and what it meant to his fiancee.

In a teaser for an upcoming episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Biniyam and Leandro are shown boxing, with Biniyam telling the cameras, "I won't let him take Ari back to America."

Footage then flashes to Biniyam putting Leandro in a headlock on the floor with Leandro tapping out.


So are Ariela and Biniyam still together or has the 90 Day Fiance couple broken up?

On August 21, Ariela posted a video of Biniyam and herself playing "The Newly Engaged Game" with Us Weekly, showing they're still happy and together.

Ariela gushed about her husband being the more romantic one in their relationship, and one day earlier, she posted a portrait of herself in Ethiopia, which suggests she's still living there with Biniyam.

Ariela also posted a photo of herself in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, saying she was at one of her and Biniyam's favorite restaurants.

The couple, however, couldn't seem to agree on wedding plans in a joint interview with Us.

Ariela shared how she and her fiance have yet to set a wedding date or even agree on a time of year in which to marry.

"It remains to be seen," Ariela admitted. "I'll leave that one on a cliffhanger."

Ariela explained how she and Biniyam have "taken time" with their engagement.

"A lot of people get engaged and they get married right away. I think... one of my concerns is and points [of contention] is that Bini is a party person. He likes a big wedding, a big party and, you know, he likes to go all out," Ariela explained.

Biniyam, however, said "it's not about partying" for him when it comes to saying, "I do."

"In my culture, if you have to do a wedding, you have a big wedding. Like, your father's side, your mother's. That's the culture I'm used to, that's how I grew up," Biniyam said.

Ariela, on the other hand, told the magazine that she envisions a small wedding, maybe at the beach.

"I don't know. I don't want a big wedding, and so I don't know how we're going to work that one out," Ariela acknowledged.

Ariela and Biniyam also haven't even decided on which country their wedding will take place in.

"It would be great if my family could attend the wedding," Ariela said. "I think it would be hard to get the whole family shipped out to Ethiopia."

But Biniyam said he would "definitely" like to get married in Ethiopia.

"I'd like a big wedding in my country. I'd like to show her what a typical Ethiopian wedding looks like," Biniyam told the magazine.

"My father's side is very funny. My mother says it's a different culture [with] a wedding ceremony. I want to show her -- for Avi, for Avi's family... what a traditional Ethiopian wedding looks like."

Biniyam also reasoned how it would be hard to fly his whole family to the United States for their wedding.

"We have kind of a situation," noted Biniyam, who appears to struggle financially in Ethiopia.

Ariela therefore determined, "I think maybe we've got to talk about this one, because that sounds like a lot."

On the topic of Ariela's ex-husband Leandro, Ariela insisted to Us that they got married young and are "still great friends" and "have a great relationship." She said their marriage didn't end badly or in a fight.

"He's really involved in my life. He still talks to my family and he's involved in family holidays and stuff," Ariela revealed.

"He's my friend, and I wanted him to come out [to Africa] as a friend. For me, I've lived a life where I've traveled a lot. It's not always easy to keep friends. If you get a friend who's willing to come out to Ethiopia, you better keep that friend."

Ariela admitted, "I don't know how Bini feels about the whole thing. I'm sure it's going to be a really interesting season."

But Biniyam gushed about being happy with his wife on his own Instagram account on August 1.

In addition to uploading several family photos and videos, Biniyam wrote, "I'm so lucky god he give me this amazing family. We love like crazy. Every day is an adventure when we are together."

And he posted a beautiful photo of Ariela and himself writing "love" as the sweet and simple caption.

On July 10, Ariela captioned photos of herself wearing traditional dress in Ethiopia and "making a coffee ceremony."

"I have loved Ethiopia since I visited for the first time in 2017 before I ever met Biniyam. I love the people, the culture, the food, the landscape, and the history it provides. Ethiopia gave me my family and my son. It gave me my best friend and the beautiful life I have now," Ariela gushed.

She also shared a cute picture of herself hugging Biniyam and wrote alongside it, "Hiking and hugs are the best. #iloveyou."

Ariela has also posted recent photos of her son "in the Ethiopian countryside" with her and videos of Biniyam busting a move.

Ariela wrote to her husband in a sweet Father's Day message in June, "Happy Father's Day! Seeing you love and care for Avi makes my whole life."

"I know you love him more than anything," she continued. "Waking up to him and you every day is the most comfortable feeling in the world. I love you both. Thanks for making this family with me. #happyfathersday #90dayfiance #myfamily #usthree #arielaandbiniyam."

On May 11, Biniyam posted a photo with Ariela on a jetski.

"More adventures with you my love. Diving, skydiving, skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, repelling, zip lining, surfing, hiking, camping, and everything with you," he captioned the slideshow.

And Ariela wrote Biniyam a beautiful message for his birthday in early April.

"We love you and wish you happiness and peace. This year is going to bring with it amazing possibilities and opportunities. I can't wait to see what you will do with all your potential and G-d given talents. Thank you for letting me be a part of your corner of the universe," Ariela wrote on Instagram.

"You've taught me so much and I hope you can say the same about me. We are family forever, bonded together by our sweetest boy and our incredible shared experiences. It was no accident we met on the street that day. I never expected to take this journey with you! Look how far we've both come! Can't wait to cuddle with you and Avi in a few!"
