    “The Bachelor” doesn’t have a great track record in terms enduring love. Twenty seasons have only yielded three lasting relationships, and one of them is now in danger

    On Freeform’s “Bachelor” spinoff -- "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?" -- bachelor number 20 Ben Higgins called off his wedding to his season’s winner, Lauren Bushnell. 

    "I think this thing sped up real fast, and we haven’t had a second to breathe,” he told Bushnell while tearing up. “We both started to know each other. We were engaged. Like, it's weird. But now it's time not to rush anything else."

    "I feel like we have so much to figure out that it's hard for me at this point to really feel comfortable getting married," he added.

    Bushnell said she was “completely blindsided” by his announcement.

    "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?" still has two more episodes before the finale, and the couple remains together, despite tensions.
