No relationship comes without its ups and downs, and that much is clearly true for power couple Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins. The engaged duo — who met and fell in love on cult classic reality show, The Bachelor — have been experiencing a tumultuous few months navigating this very new relationship together. Things have actually gotten so bad that Higgins told his bombshell of a fiancé (on camera, no less) that he was calling off the wedding. Bro, what the actual F?! You break JoJo’s heart to start a life with Lauren, then you’re like “Nah, forget it”!?
But we digress. On the two-hour special of their Freeform reality TV show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? (emphasis on the ? TBH…) that airs tonight, the couple attends a therapy session to discuss pre-marital problems before that big, sometimes scary, walk down the aisle. In the promo, Higgins confesses, “I think you’re ready to start a life. I’m not ready for that. Not even close.”
Shocked and heartbroken Bushnell chokes out, “So you’re saying the wedding is off?” To which a super insensitive Higgins responds, “Yeah, I am.” HAVEN’T WE ALREADY HAD A TOUGH ENOUGH 2016, BEN? Take it back! While we thoroughly support open and honest communication in a relationship, did he really need to be so ridiculously harsh? But before you cross this Bachelor pair off of your favorite couples list, just consider this: the show has two more episodes left, so are they really pulling the plug before the season finale? Umm, doubtful. But good try Freeform! Here’s to hoping Higgins gets his commitment issues in check because we really, really selfishly want to see what Bushnell wears down the aisle. Sorry, not sorry.
Watch the teaser above or tune in to Freeform tonight at 8PM to see what happens.
