Bachelor Alum Ben Higgins and Fiance Lauren Bushell Have Called it Quits

in Divorce by

In an announcement that really came as no surprise, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have officially called off their engagement. The couple got engaged during Ben’s season of ABC’s show The Bachelor. The ex-couple confirmed to People that they have decided to go their separate ways. They released a joint statement to People saying that regardless of the failure of their relationship they remain friends.

They told People in their statement, “It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways. We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.”

Ben’s season was very memorable for Bachelor fans due to the fact that Ben told both Lauren and JoJo Fletcher that he loved them during the fantasy suite date episode. Never in Bachelor history has that happened before. When Lauren found out that Ben had confessed his love for both her and her competition, she struggled with Ben loving JoJo as well. She told People, “post-filming was more of an emotional roller coaster than the actual show.”

Lauren also said at the time, “I fall more in love with Ben every day and it’s hard to separate what happened long ago and my current feelings. It’s confusing. It does wear on me. It hurts,” she added. “It’s like, why did I have to go through that hurt? It’s already a few months of confusion and tears and then to have to deal with it again. It’s hard.”

Despite the rough beginning to their engagement, the couple seemed to be doing well up until their announced that they were going to put their wedding on hold last November. During their time on the reality tv series, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?, Ben stunned Lauren by announcing that wanted to put their wedding plans on hold. Lauren was upset but Ben assured her that ultimately he wanted to marry her. Looks like that didn’t quite pan out.




Bachelor Alum Ben Higgins Calls off Wedding to Lauren Bushnell

ben-higgins-lauren-bushnell-cutest-picturesSeason 20 bachelor Ben Higgins and fiancé Lauren Bushnell are hitting some troubled waters. The couple who got engaged on the reality tv dating show The Bachelor are now appearing on their own reality TV show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. On the Tuesday episode of their reality show during a therapy session, Ben, 28, admitted to Lauren that he’s not ready to tie the knot.

Lauren starts to cry and asks him: ‘”So you’re saying the wedding is off?” and Ben replied “Yeah, I am. The wedding’s off.” Ben, who called her the ‘woman of my dreams,’ added “I think this thing sped up real fast and we haven’t had a second to breathe.” Ben then goes on to claim that they couple hasn’t really done anything to which Lauren contradicts him by stating that she left her life in LA to be with him.

After the therapy session Lauren was devastated because she was blindsided by this admission. A crying Lauren said that “I have no idea what just happened. I had no idea that Ben was feeling this way. And I feel completely blindsided.” Ben has the exact opposite feeling after the session. He felt like there was a weight lifted off his chest after letting Lauren know that he wants to postpone the wedding. He does eventually want to marry Lauren but he does not feel like it should be anytime soon.

The Bachelor/Bachelorette does not have a great track record when it comes to successful relationships. There have been technically 3 successful relationships from The Bachelor and there are eight from The Bachelorette. We are hoping that is works out between the two but Ben famously told the two finalists, JoJo and Lauren, that he loved them so we don’t have high hopes for this couple. They both jumped right into reality tv and it appears to be having a strain on their relationship.
