Arie Luyendyk Jr. isn't hiding his feelings for Lauren Burnham, but not everyone is having it. On Thursday, Luyendyk shared a mushy Instagram post, in which the former Bachelor star details his intimate feelings for his bride, alongside a shot from their engagement shoot.
"I can’t sleep... the house is quiet, you’re next to me. I can hear your soft breath and I wonder what you’re dreaming about. I closed my eyes tonight and our future played like a beautiful romance with flashes of our wedding, travels, our children and a house full of friends, family and love," Arie wrote next to a photo taken by photographer Jennifer Perkins of Griffith Imaging. "I woke up and you were wrapped in my arms, our pups on the floor next to us. Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives but in the same breath push pause and not let these eyes close for too long because this is what true love feels like.
Good night xo."
But as one of the most hated contestants in Bachelor history (debatable, but let us not forget what he did to Becca Kurfin), Arie's post was quick to catch heat from fans and other members of Bachelor Nation. Sean Lowe, who starred on the Season 17 of the reality show and is now married to Catherine Guidici, had by far the most hilarious response of them all.
"This is bizarre! I wrote something eerily similar to Catherine," the reality star began his snarky comment. "I can't sleep- think it was the Mexican food. I can hear your loud snores and I wonder if I should put a pillow over your head. I closed my eyes tonight and flashes of an empty house, no kids, no noise, just me and Netflix played out like a beautiful romance. Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives to the point where I'm not constantly wiping someone's butt or cleaning up vomit off the couch.
This is what marriage feels like. XO"
Arie and Lauren are set to tie the knot in two months, in "JanuARIE" in Hawaii and are debating having a TV wedding. And while we're glad the two have found each other, we can't help but agree that Sean's description of marriage and real life is a bit more relatable.
