Whether you believe that a reality television show could lead to actual, real-life love or not, The Bachelor franchise has produced some married couples. Some even have families of their own now, with their own adorable kids and #sponcon-built homes. Unfortunately though, those seem to be the exception and not the rule. There are plenty of failed Bachelor Nation engagements that show the premise of these shows isn't too well-suited for a long-lasting relationship.
Seriously, imagine: You're dating one person while they're dating 30 people. You have to live with your dating competition, and you have no Wi-Fi, phone access, or anything to distract you from your jealousy. And what if you are the one person that other person chooses? Well, you get engaged just minutes after they broke up with the runner-up. This all seems ridiculously problematic and not at all conducive to a healthy relationship, regardless if you're into monogamous or non-monogamy. Yes, some do survive the nearly insurmountable odds. But while many come out of Bachelor shows with an engagement, not all remain engaged, and even fewer lead to happily-ever-afters. Here are some of the biggest break-ups to hit engaged #BachelorNation couples – one as recent as this past month.
