According to, they called off the wedding on their reality TV show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. However, the two claim they are happier than ever after making this decision. “That’s one of the things that’s great about doing a show post-Bachelor. It really does highlight the confusion that life is and trying to get to know each other post-show, and trying to figure out how to get married and make everything work in everybody’s best interest,” Higgins told Entertainment tonight. “We are together, happier than ever — no plans to break up!” Higgins has no regrets of sharing his concerns and calling off the wedding, “We’re in one of the best places we’ve ever been in our relationship — probably the best place,” he told ET. “We’re feeling less stressed. We’re feeling less pressured. We’re able to laugh and smile more. … That decision at that point led us to every decision we’ve made to get to today.”

Cupid’s Advice: 

Rushing into a marriage could end it before it even really begins. These are some ways to recognize you aren’t ready for marriage:

1. Anxiety: Planning a wedding is always going to create some anxiety. But, if that anxiety is taking over and shadowing the happiness and joy that also comes with it, it may be time to call it off.

2. Fear: Getting cold feet before the wedding is normal for a lot of people. However, there is a difference between cold feet and being terrified of getting married. If you are feeling uncomfortable, it is important to be honest with your partner.

3. Feeling pressured: A marriage needs to be a completely mutual decision. If you feel like you were pressured into the marriage, you may end up resenting your partner. Avoid that by taking the time and slowing things down.
