This season of The Bachelor might have you wondering if Nick Viall really is there for the right reasons. The show is supposed to end with an engagement, followed by a wedding, right? Fortunately for Nick, there are quite a few former Bachelor contestants he can look to as role models.
Trista and Ryan Sutter, the couple that was born from the first-ever Bachelorette, is one of our favorite romantic success stories. They wed in 2003 and are still going strong. Another one of our favorite couples is Sean and Catherine Lowe, who welcomed their first son, Samuel, last year.
And now that Bachelor in Paradise has entered the franchise, there’s even more opportunity for engagements, just look at Jade and Tanner! Even if you didn’t watch their season, you probably know all about the magical things that happened at their wedding, thanks to Liz (who hooked up with Nick, if you missed her talking about it every five seconds). To bring you a little hope for this season, we’ve rounded up all the couples from the Bachelor franchise who are still in it for the long haul.

Chris Siegfried & Desiree Hartsock
He's always making me laugh! I swear, I wish I could bottle up and share his many quick-witted jokes or infectious quirkiness for you all to enjoy- he's truly one of a kind! 💕Happy two year anniversary to the most remarkable hubby, father and man I am SO lucky to get to spend life with! Last year as we celebrated our one year in Hawaii, we also found out we were pregnant with Asher (same day this pic was taken)!- so there's all sorts of feels today as we get to celebrate a wonderful year and embark on a new adventure. Love you to the moon and back babe! 😘 @chrisrsiegfried #alwyasfallingforward #lovehimsomuch #luckygirl #anniversary #hawaii // photo: @annakimphotography
