The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are TV shows with a clear objective that you don’t require Bachelor spoilers to find out:

Set up a man or female with his/her soulmate.

Heck, nearly every season ends with a proposition? And yet, over time, almost no propositions end in actual marital relationship.

By the numbers, few couples from Bachelor Nation last months; not to mention years; let alone an entire lifetime together.

Have there been exceptions to this rule?

Oh yeah, just take a look at Jason and Molly. Or Sean and Cat. Rachel and Bryan. Even Arie and Lauren … or JoJo and Jordan.

Nevertheless, it’s still an arduous, uphill struggle.

See Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt, or Peter Weber and Hannah Ann, or Peter Weber and Madison for that matter.

Their engagements lasted … days? Hours?

Heck, Peter and Kelley Flanagan broke up too now.

The truth is that it’s hard out there for duos spawned by this franchise to make it work, as we saw again this weekend.

Colton and Cassie separated last summertime. Followrd by Becca and Garrett. Then Ashley and J.P.. Such a ruthless year, 2020.

Some people are just indicated to be good friends.

Will the other Bachelorette of 2020, Tayshia Adams, fare any better, now that recording has covered and reality has started?

What about her Bachelor equivalent, Matt James?

We hope so. We doubt it. Anyhow …

Looking back through the years, who is still living gladly ever after the final rose was handed out?
