Arie Luyendyk, Jr. practically left Bachelor Nation in shambles when he pulled the ultimate assh*le move during this season of The Bachelor, ditching Becca Kufrin for runner-up Lauren Burnham in a truly dramatic finale. Many fans of the ABC show were (and still are, TBH) shocked by Arie’s douchebaggery, but fortunately, not every Bachelor Nation romance ends in a horrific televised breakup and eyeroll-worthy secondhand proposal. There are a handful of couples that met through the ABC franchise and still remain together to this day, giving us hope that true, lasting love can develop in front of the cameras.
Take Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, for example. Jade vied for Chris Soules’s heart back in the day, while Tanner was on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette. The two totally hit it off during Bachelor in Paradise back in 2015, with Tanner getting down on one knee during the season finale. The stars tied the knot in February 2016 and welcomed their first child, daughter Emerson, in August 2017. The Tolberts totally take the cake for cutest Bachelor Nation family ever, and the 17 sweet photos ahead prove it. If you love this trio, you’re sure to swoon over Carly Waddell and Evan Bass’s sweetest couple moments just as much.
