Love doesn't always come easy for the Shahs of Sunset cast. The road to happily ever after has been paved with some hardships over the last five seasons. For instance, Reza Farahan definitely had a pair of cold feet before he was slated to say "I do" to Adam Neely in Season 4. And now viewers are seeing the fallout from Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido's marital woes shortly after marrying in 2015. As Mercedes "MJ" Javid preps her own walk down the aisle, we had to ask: Is there a wedding curse in the world of the Shahs?
"I don't, but I do think that Mike and Reza's situations were were totally different," she told The Daily Dish, in the clip above. "Mike wasn't ready, Reza needed to make sure his relationship was right and he got it on track."
So with marriage in the cards for MJ and her fiance, Tommy Feight, she shared how she's making sure she avoids any of that drama (not that it's been easy to do). "We have not planned a wedding because we want to be engaged and want to continue to learn about each other," MJ said. "I want him to make sure that he wants to marry me. And I have that whole abandonment past baggage where I'm afraid that one morning he's just gonna wake up and look at me and just change his mind. So I feel like the longer I get to know him, there may be like a two year mark or something where one day I'll be like, 'OK, I believe you. You love me. We'll be together forever.'"
Speaking of Tommy, below the couple opens up about their digital courtship.
