Are they, aren’t they? We’re so confused!
Finally, The Bachelor’s Ben Higgins addressed rumors of a breakup with Lauren Bushnell.
Seriously, the Ben and Lauren reality show has kept us on our toes. As most of Bachelor Nation knows, they were supposed to get married soon after their engagement and have their wedding filmed for a Bachelor special…but they called off the plan because Ben was feeling really rushed (UNDERSTANDABLE). So…what’s the deal guys?
Well, everything seems like it’s moving forward at a healthy pace. Yesterday, Higgins posted a loving Instagram post which perfectly captures their relationship and where it’s at. From what we can decipher, they’re very much still engaged and just taking things at their own pace.
Okay, we can deal with that! And knowing how fast everything happens on shows like The Bachelor, it’s not surprising at all that Higgins was feeling the pressure to tie the knot. There’s no need for anyone to rush into marriage, much less a couple who met on television and have had a very public relationship from the beginning…so, we get it, guys.
In October of last year, Higgins gave an exclusive statement to People about his relationship. “We’re not the perfect couple. Far from it! But we are trying really hard and we love each other a lot.” Of course, there is really no such thing as the ‘perfect’ couple, because relationships are hard and each member has to work at it every day.
But it sounds like Higgins and Bushnell are doing well, and we have no doubt that they’ll figure things out. And until then, we hope that they’re simply enjoying each other’s company.
