90 Day Fiance: Emily Bieberly’s Mom Slams ‘Property’ Tradition with Kobe’s Family

90 Day Fiance: Emily Bieberly's Mom Slams 'Property' Tradition with Kobe's Family

In a preview of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 8, Emily Bieberly’s mom expresses concerns about Cameroonian wedding traditions, referring to her daughter as “property.”

Emily and Kobe Blaise, who married in Season 9, face cultural challenges as they plan a traditional Cameroonian ceremony to honor Kobe’s ancestors.

Emily’s Mom’s Concerns Over Bride Price

Emily’s mom is particularly worried about the tradition of paying a bride price to Kobe’s family. She tells Kobe’s family, “to me, it felt like we were selling Emily.”

Kobe’s brother clarifies that this tradition signifies that Emily would belong to Kobe’s family. This further alarms Emily’s mom, who feels it implies Emily is no longer part of her own family.

Cultural Clash Over the Term ‘Property’

Emily Bieberly’s dad adds, “the word ‘property’ is a very difficult word for us.” Despite attempts to explain the tradition, Kobe’s brother remains puzzled by Emily’s parents‘ resistance.

Emily’s mom argues, “to call my daughter or any person ‘property’… it’s equating them to a thing or a possession.” She insists that Emily is an adult capable of making her own decisions and feels the need to voice her discomfort.

Tension Between Families

Emily’s mom feels disrespected and unheard by Kobe’s family, stating that she feels like her daughter is being bought. She worries they have lost control over the situation.

Despite Emily’s deep connection with Kobe and their three children, her mom struggles to accept this cultural practice.

Possible Overreaction or Valid Concern?

Some might think Emily’s mom is overreacting since Emily and her family will return to the United States. Emily’s mom might consider overlooking this tradition for her daughter’s happiness.

However, Emily’s parents are strong-willed and may not agree to the bride price. It remains to be seen if Emily’s mom will voice her concerns or remain silent on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?
