Ben Higgins starred on The Bachelor Season 20 after coming in at third place on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette. In his season of The Bachelor, he ended up getting down on one knee to propose to Lauren Bushnell. Ben gave her a $95,000 Neil Lane engagement ring that is 4.25 carats, but it looks like we might not get a wedding after all. There are multiple rumors that the two have actually broken up.
So what is going on between them? Here are 10 things we know about Lauren and Ben’s breakup rumors.
1. Ben called off the wedding
In an episode of Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? Ben voiced his concerns about their upcoming nuptials. “I feel like we have so much to figure out that it’s hard for me at this point to really feel comfortable getting married,” he said. When Lauren asked if this meant he was calling off the wedding he said, “Yeah, I am.” The couple however, agreed that they would keep dating, but just switch their focus to their relationship instead of a wedding.
Although something like that could be a huge blow to their relationship, Lauren seemed to be really understanding. She said, “if Ben needs a little more time to feel comfortable getting married, that he should really have it because in the end, it won’t matter if this wedding’s a little bit later.”
The decision to put off the wedding is somewhat understandable. The majority of their relationship was spent on a television show, and they should probably spend more time getting to know each other. But there are rumors that their problems go a little deeper than that.
