10 Things You Didn’t Know About Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins Relationship
8. Couples Therapy
Despite falling in love and getting engaged at the end of The Bachelor and still being happily engaged to this day, 10 months into their engagement the two started going to couples counseling. “We’re not the perfect couple. Far from it! But we are trying really hard, and we love each other a lot,” said Higgins in an interview with People. They attended therapy at their church in Denver, Colorado. “We want to get a foundation that is healthy and pure and honest, with some help from a mediator. ‘Bachelor’ or not, our life is not easy to navigate. We have our struggles. But we won’t give up. And for every argument, we’re stronger for it.”
7. Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?
A few months after The Bachelor ended it was announced that Lauren and Ben would get their own reality series called Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? The series debuted on Oct. 11 on Freeform and documented all the ups and downs of their lives together after The Bachelor like moving in together, attending couples therapy and planning their wedding. While Ben admitted they were both a little skeptical about jumping from one reality show to another without really taking any time off to focus on themselves, they don’t regret their decision. There have been no plans on drawing up a contract for another season, so it might have been a one time thing — who knows!
