12. Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter

Sweet Sweet Vacation.A post shared by Ryan Sutter (@ryansutter) on Jan 14, 2018 at 5:26pm PST

Trista was the first ever Bachelorette. So it’s kind of perfect that she actually found her happily ever after with husband Ryan on the show. Rehn was a previous Bachelor veteran as she had appeared on the competition’s first season. She and Sutter wed in a televised ceremony in December 2003. They’ve since welcomed two children and live in Colorado.

11. Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney

Jason and Molly were quite the controversial couple on season 13 of The Bachelor. Why?? Well, because, originally Mesnick had given the final rose to Melissa Rycroft. After he couldn’t stop thinking about Malaney, he dumped Melissa and declared his love to Molly on the reunion show. In March 2010, Jason and Molly tied the knot. They now have a daughter, named Riley Anne.

10. Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum

Finally. 👫A post shared by Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum (@ashleylynnrosenbaum) on Dec 6, 2017 at 2:02pm PST

What a happy ending. Ashley was named season seven’s Bachelorette after getting rejected by Brad Womack. Regardless, she met JP on her season and they got engaged at the very end. The love birds were wed in a (you guessed it) televised special in December 2012. They are now parents to two kids, son Fordham and daughter Essex.

9. Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici

After losing out on love during Emily Maynard‘s season of The Bachelorette, Sean was brought on to be season 17’s Bachelor. Thankfully, this stint on TV was more successful as he met now wife Catherine, whom he proposed to at the end of the season. They are now married with a son, named Samuel Thomas, and are expecting another child.

8. Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried

Fans were REALLY rooting for Desiree to find love after Sean Lowe dumped her on The Bachelor. Don’t worry, she did! During her stint on The Bachelorette, she met Siegfried and they got married in January 2015. They are now parents to a son, named Asher.

7. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth

Kaitlyn chose Shawn as her final suitor and, in typical Bachelorette fashion, the twosome got engaged in 2015. They are still going strong, but aren’t rushing to get married (which is probably why they’re still together)!

6. Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert

The first Bachelor In Paradise success story! After being castoffs on their respective seasons, Jade and Tanner met and fell in love during season two of Paradise. Although other couples got “married” and engaged on the spinoff show, these two were the first to have a legal union that lasted. They now are parents to a daughter, named Emerson Avery Tolbert.

5. JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

Fam taking on the wild 👫🐶A post shared by JoJo Fletcher (@joelle_fletcher) on Jan 13, 2018 at 5:13pm PST

After an emotional season, JoJo accepted Jordan’s proposal at the end of her stint on The Bachelorette. The twosome couldn’t be happier and have talked about their potential wedding plans, but they’ve yet to lock in a date. Keep enjoying your lengthy engagement, y’all!

4. Carly Waddell and Evan Bass

Despite being repulsed by Evan at first, by the end of their stint on Bachelor In Paradise, the two were in love and getting engaged. Carly and Evan’s 2017 nuptials were filmed and televised as part of the next season of BIP. They’re now pregnant and awaiting the arrival of their baby girl.

3. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo

Bachelor nation was up in arms when Rachel dumped Peter Kraus and accepted Bryan’s marriage proposal. But it seems that the powerhouse lawyer made the right call, as she and her chiropractor beau are still engaged. No wedding plans as of yet though!

2. Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth

Before Bachelor In Paradise, Taylor was probably best known for feuding with Corinne Olympios over Nick Viall and emotional intelligence. However, Nolan went on to meet JoJo Fletcher’s castoff Derek and the rest is history. Now, the twosome didn’t get engaged on Paradise, but they DID get betrothed on the reunion special.

1. Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk

We’re lit ├░┼╕┼╜ΓÇ₧A post shared by ravennicolegates (@ravennicolegates) on Dec 16, 2017 at 6:33pm PST

Despite being on a chaotic season of Bachelor In Paradise, Raven and Adam walked away totally in love. Thankfully, their connection lasted well outside of Mexico and the two are going strong. Fingers crossed an engagement is in the works!!
