‘The Bachelorette’: Is Garrett Yrigoyen Getting Cold Feet about Marrying Becca Kufrin?
The goal of going on The Bachelorette or The Bachelor is to get married, right? Then why is it that most of the couples who result from the show never actually make it down the aisle? Almost every season ends with an engagement but rarely do the couples make it to the alter or even last through the year.
Out of 23 seasons of The Bachelor, only two men are still with the women who they gave their final roses to. The Bachelorettes actually have better luck. Out of 14 seasons of The Bachelorette, six women are still with the men that they chose.
Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen are one of those six couples. Though they are still together, their relationship hasn’t really progressed since they got engaged. So, what’s up?
Becca Kufrin and Garret Yrigoyen’s relationship
Kufrin first appeared on Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor. Luyendyk chose Kufrin in the end and the two got engaged. Unfortunately for Kufrin, Luyendyk couldn’t stop thinking about his runner up, Lauren Burnham. During one of their post Bachelor secret visits, Luyendyk broke off his engagement with Kufrin and then asked Burnham to marry him during the After the Final Rose ceremony.
Kufrin, while heartbroken, gained enough sympathy to be chosen as the Bachelorette. While on the show, a number of Yrigoyen’s questionable social media likes were exposed. Despite this fact, Kufrin chose him in the end and the two have seemed happy together ever since.
Garret Yrigoyen and Becca Kufrin have no wedding plans
Since it’s been over a year since Kufrin was the Bachelorette and got engaged, fans have been wondering when she would actually tie the knot. But from the looks of it, the nuptials won’t be happening for a while.
“We literally have zero wedding plans right now,” Kufrin said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.
“I went on the show to find somebody to get engaged to eventually get married, so I understand that that’s why people always ask and they’re interested… If post a picture of Garrett and I, the only comments I feel like we get are, ‘Oh, my gosh, have babies right now.’ Or, ‘Oh, my gosh, when’s the wedding?’ There’s more to our relationship than that, but again, it’s because we put ourselves out there in that regard.”
The real reason they aren’t married yet
Marriage just isn’t a priority right now for Kufrin and Yrigoyen.
“We just have so much going on, and we’ve still been traveling like crazy that we’re just dragging our feet,” Kufrin told Entertainment Tonight. “Especially knowing how crazy my life is going to be with the [Bachelor: Live on Stage] tour coming up and all of that, and working on the loungewear line, I think we’re just taking our time.”
And the former Bachelorette doesn’t want to rush her fiance.
“He was previously married and divorced, so I never want him to feel rushed or pressured into anything,” she continued. “So, I’m fine with where we’re at. I’m kind of just waiting for him to be like, ‘OK, let’s do this now.'”
