Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk found each other on season four of Bachelor in Paradise after unsuccessful attempts to find love on their respective seasons. Just two years after meeting, they got married and are now proud parents of two children.

Jared and Ashley Haibon’s journey to love was a rocky one, with Jared initially ending things with Ashley and dating someone else from the show.
