One year later! Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo prove to be a Bachelorette success story as they celebrate their one year anniversary.

The two fell in love on season 13 of The Bachelorette — Lindsay made her debut on Nick Viall's season 21 of The Bachelor — and she was quick to give Abasolo the first impression rose.

His good looks and charming personality quickly won over the reality star, 35. While the Bachelorette happily accepted Abasolo’s proposal during the final rose ceremony in August 2017, the Texas native felt the couple’s love was overshadowed by her split from runner-up, Peter Kraus, 35.

The Bachelor franchise does believe in happy endings — some people get an on-camera happy ending, some people get an off-camera happy ending, and some people get both,” Lindsay recalled in a blog for Us Weekly. “As for my happy ending, it was not demonstrated within the confines of your television screens, but I am living it every day in real life.”


The couple got married on August 24, 2019, in Mexico, and are celebrating their one year anniversary.

With season 16 of The Bachelorette taking Bachelor Nation through a whirlwind of emotions before production even started, let’s look back at some of the successful bachelor franchise relationships who found love on the show and made it in the real world.

Entrepreneur Lowe, known during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor,” starred on season 17 of The Bachelor and gave his final rose to his graphic designer wife, Giudici.

The pair were married a year later in 2014 during a filmed ABC special and share two sons Isaiah Hendrix, and Samuel Thomas, and their newest member Mia Mejia, who was born in December 2019.

While talking about the couple’s marriage to E!, the 34-year-old said, "I think I have learned better patience when it comes to our marriage and that rage is kind of a waste of time."

"I've been slower to anger when I remember how much Sean loves me and better at explaining how I feel," she explained referring to her six-year marriage to Lowe.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried

The bridal stylist and the banker met on season 9 of The Bachelorette and got engaged during the finale in 2013 and married two years later. The couple now has two sons, Asher and Zander, who she frequently posts about along with family photos of their cute moments.

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

The real estate developer and former pro football player may not have tied the knot just yet, but these two love birds have made it four years together since they first met on season 12 of The Bachelorette in 2016.

The couple was set to walk down the aisle on June 13, 2020, but had to push back the date due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fletcher and Rodgers didn’t let the pandemic ruin their time together as they continue to enjoy one another and share fun-loving posts of each other working out, playing with their dog, and going on date nights.
