Shanique addressed her relationship on her Instagram Story the day the reunion was released. “If you watched episode 10, you know we did break up for quite some time, half a year, last year,” she said. “And that break up was so necessary. You know, an experiment like this I think it’s really great because it’s gonna uproot a lot of the things that maybe you don’t realize are holding your relationship back from being able to get to that next stage.”

However, she said the experiment is short and they needed more time to solve their problems. They realized they didn’t want to move forward with the engagement and take time apart.

“Had it not been for that break I just don’t think we would be as together as people, as individual people,” Shanique later said. “Certainly not as a couple because there were some real things that needed to be talked about and worked through.”

She then revealed she’s seeking therapy for things she discovered about herself and recommends it to other people. Shanique said she was grateful for it.
