They’re the Bachelor couple that everyone loves to talk about, Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph. The overwhelming attention that the pair receives is in part due to that fact that they are the most recent Bachelor couple to come together, but it also may have something to do with the way that their relationship started.
Their relationship on The Bachelor was one of the most one-sided ones that we have ever seen on the show. In fact, Randolph tried to leave The Bachelor and Underwood. But instead of letting her go, Underwood jumped over a wall, sent all the other girls home, and basically begged her to stay and give him a chance.
While it worked and Randolph did end up staying, fans have been wondering if Randolph is actually as invested as Underwood and if she even wants to get married at all.
Underwood wants to get married
From the very beginning of his Bachelor journey, Underwood made it very clear that he wanted to find a wife. He wasn’t on the show just to date. Randolph saw this and that was the main reason that she wanted to break up with him.
“I know why you came into this was to find someone to spend the rest of your life with … I didn’t know if I could get there and that’s essentially why I left,” she said to Underwood on the show.
Later, she told the former football player’s mom that he was always ahead of her in the relationship.
“We are on a little bit of different pages … he’s always a step ahead of me,” she said.
Does Underwood still want to get married?
Initially, when the show ended, Underwood was still pretty set on marrying Randolph.
“I think, right now, at this point in our relationship, we’re enjoying this, trying to be as normal as possible,” Underwood told Entertainment Tonight when asked about an engagement. “But you know, we’ve talked about our engagement and talked about taking the next step in our relationship and [decided] one thing at a time.”
He continued, saying that he wanted to propose pretty soon.
“Honestly, if I was a betting man I would say it would happen within the next year, yes,” he said.
Randolph doesn’t want to rush things
While Underwood may want to get engaged within the year, Randolph is trying to take it slow.
“We’ve definitely talked about it, but we’re just enjoying right now and not worrying about it,” she told Us Weekly of when the couple would get engaged.
Is Underwood okay with taking it slow?
Over time, it seems like Underwood has warmed up to the idea of slowing things down.
“We are trying to do everything as normal as possible,” Underwood told Extra. “I don’t think you realize how many important steps you miss in the Bachelor process, which is nothing against them. We want to make sure we do this the right way. Statistically speaking, for Bachelors, it’s not very good odds, so I think us going against what other Bachelor and Bachelorette couples have done is probably going to work out in our favor.”
“We both feel like … living our separate lives but still coming together at the end of the day is what’s most important for us and what’s the right step for where we’re at in our relationship.”
