The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are TV shows with a clear goal that you don’t need Bachelor spoilers to figure out:
Set up a man or woman with his or her soulmate.
Heck, nearly every season ends with a proposal, right? And yet, over time, almost no proposals end in actual marriage.
By the numbers, few couples from Bachelor Nation last months; let alone years; let alone an entire lifetime together.
Have there been exceptions to this rule?
Oh yeah, just look at Jason and Molly. Or Sean and Cat. Rachel and Bryan. Even Arie and Lauren … or JoJo and Jordan.
Nevertheless, it’s still an arduous, uphill battle.
See Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt, or Peter Weber and Madison Prewett, whose engagements lasted … days? Hours?
These are unique cases, and yet … not.
The fact is that it’s hard out there for duos spawned by this franchise to make it work. As we saw again this weekend.
Yes, you probably saw that Colton and Cassie broke up this summer. And Becca and Garrett. Now Ashley and J.P.
Some people are just meant to be friends.
Will Clare Crawley (or Tayshia Adams) fare any better in 2020, assuming filming resumes and there even is a season?
We hope so. But we doubt it. Anyway …
So looking back through the years, who is still living happily ever after after the final rose was handed out?
Take a look at notable duos from The Bachelor and Bachelorette and see whether they’re still a romantic item now.
