Christmas Abbott and Memphis Garrett are married

After a nearly one-year engagement, Memphis Garrett and Christmas Abbott married in Savannah, Georgia, during Memorial Day Weekend 2022.

Speaking to E! News following their big day, Memphis noted he’s excited about marrying his Big Brother ally so he can “spend the rest of my life with her” and continue building their relationship.

“We have so much fun together, and we complement each other. When you find something like that, you don’t ever want to let that go.” Christmas also doted on her spouse, believing God “created” Memphis, especially for her. “I knew that everything that had happened in my life prepared me to meet him, so when I did, I would know he’s my person without a doubt. He is my best friend and my home, and I get to spend forever with him,” she told the publication.

According to the couple, Christmas preferred to get married at a local courthouse, but Memphis encouraged her to have a wedding with their friends and family in attendance.

In 2020, Memphis and Christmas returned for Big Brother 22: All Stars. The two became allies and eventually developed a close relationship.

Live Feed viewers insisted they saw Memphis pull Christmas onto his lap during Week 9 in the Head of Household room and believe the pair kissed behind a bedsheet.

However, as they were both in committed relationships at the time, they denied it. A couple of months later, on December 1, 2020, the pair announced they began dating with Instagram posts.

In her caption, she maintained they never kissed in the house. In his post, he acknowledged the complications surrounding the start of their relationship, writing, “Sometimes people come into your life, and you know they just belong. We tried to fight it, but fate had its own plan.” They both claim they didn’t start anything romantic until ending their respective relationships.
