Kaitlyn and her beau Shawn Booth have had long instances when they are apart this whole summer due to her traveling to her native Canada while he's focused on his Boothcamp gym in Nashville.
The 33-year-old values family and relationships more than anything in the world. "Family is so important to me. Relationships in general are very important to me. I put relationships first," she said.
She revealed why her boo didn't travel with her this summer when she said, “Shawn did not come up with me because the guy just bought a gym. He bought a business. He has started something huge. He is the most dedicated person I’ve ever met. He’s gonna have to be there for months…We are both so busy, and unfortunately, that means we’re spending all of this time apart.”
She also believes that in order for a relationship to thrive, one must put in hard work: “You are both always away, you’re exhausted at the end of the day, sometimes the relationship isn’t being put first, but does that mean you call it quits? No. You love the sh-t out of each other and you work through it — and yourselves to be better. You just have to get through those hurdles and enjoy the good times. Shawn and I are 110 percent committed to each other and, yes, we are still together.”
The lovebirds found each other on season 11 of the Bachelorette and have been engaged for three years.
