DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano have officially tied the knot!  Stagliano, a high school teacher, who met The Bachelorette season 4 star at the 2009 party for The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special, wed in the Serenbe community of Palmetto, GA, on Saturday.  “We’re so ecstatic to be husband and wife and we’re thrilled to be sharing this day with all our family and friends,” the couple told UsMagazine.com.  Although Pappas ended up with Jesse Csincsak after her season of the hit reality show, it didn’t end up working out and the duo broke off their engagement.

How do you keep hope for marriage alive after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

After a split, it’s tough to move on, and you may think that you’ll ever find, or even wed, “The One”.  Here are some ways to keep hope for marriage alive after a split:

1. Meet new people: After you’re done healing from the break-up, go out and meet new people.  Otherwise, you’ll never find the right person.

2. Think positive: Avoiding thinking negative thoughts about the opposite sex and figure out what you’re searching for in a future spouse.

3. Behavior changes: Once you know what you want in a marriage, find someone who is compatible with you.  Don’t settle until you do.
