The Year in Bachelor Nation Breakups: From Emily and Jef to Ben and Courtney
Sadly, a Bachelor Nation couple breaking up is more the rule than the exception. But that doesn’t mean we’re not super depressed when it happens! Let’s just say we spent a lot of time eating ice cream in our jammies this year, because there were hella breakup announcements in the land of helicopter rides and hot tub makeouts.
But if people who’ve been together for two decades can’t make it, what chance do the rest of us stand? Chris’s split could only be a portent of crappy news to come.
And that brings us to October, also known as The Month of the Breakup. Three couples called it quits in as many weeks. We dressed up like sad pandas for Halloween — because it’s how we felt on the inside.
Thankfully, the year didn’t end hopelessly. While 2012 brought plenty of heartbreak, it’s also the year of Ashley Hebert andJ.P. Rosenbaum’s magical wedding. So hold on for one more day, Bachelors and Bachelorettes. Love is still alive!
