"I think if we lived together, we wouldn't have broken up," she said.
Courtney lived in Scottsdale, Arizona while Ben resided in San Francisco.
"Our relationship has been tested pretty much the entire time we've been together," Courtney continued. "When I stayed [with Ben] for long periods of time, it helped."
The ex-couple previously released a statement labeling the breakup as a mutual decision, but now Courtney appears to be implying that Ben is the one who pulled the trigger, saying that by the time it was over, she knew she had "no fight left." She also asserts that discussions about wedding dates in 2013 took place not that long before it was all over.
"Right now, I'm focusing on healing my heart," Courtney said. "I'm a hopeless romantic and I still believe that I will find my soul mate. I need a guy who is ready for that chapter."
