There are several reasons why Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette will go down in history. Not only was she the first Black star on the reality show, but she and her final rose man are seriously cute together. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo's relationship timeline proves that love conquers all.
When Lindsay chose Abasolo over fan fave Peter Krause, viewers had mixed feelings, and she's admitted to Entertainment Tonight that the lack of receptiveness forced her and her new fiancé to develop a "thick skin." What ultimately matters, of course, is that Lindsay felt confident in her decision — and seemingly still does, given that their relationship is going strong till this day. They're married now!
Let's be real — despite producing some super shippable duos, this franchise doesn't have the *best* success rate in terms of long-term love. In fact, between 24 seasons of The Bachelor, 15 seasons of The Bachelorette, and 6 seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, 18 Bachelor Nation couples have survived after the cameras stop rolling. But those rare success stories — like Lindsay and Abasolo's — are magical AF.
Since Lindsay and Abasolo got engaged on The Bachelorette's 13th season finale, the couple has been happily settling into their new life in Miami — and from their Instagram love letters to their candid interviews about married life, it's hard not to swoon over these two (even if you were #TeamPeter). Take a walk down memory lane via their full relationship history and you're bound to understand why #RnB has withstood the test of time.
