Their wedding was planned to take place on ‘ATFR’ — but while Emily says she loves Brad, she is not ready to get married at this time! Could the magic be gone?
Uh oh! There’s already trouble in paradise for new Bachelor couple Brad Womack and Emily Maynard. Despite getting engaged on the show, they admit that they’ve had some “volatile fights” since filming ended. They even broke up for a little bit because of Brad’s temper. Now Emily says she won’t move to Austin. And she wasn’t wearing a ring on the After The Final Rose special episode that aired after the season finale on March 14.
“Right now, I love you, but no [I'm not ready to get married],” Emily tells Brad. “I wish I was. But we have some things we need to figure out like how we fight, how we communicate.”
Brad agrees. “I can lose my temper,” he admits. “I regret getting to the chance of letting her feel anything less than love.”
And while they have been figuring each other out, Brad has been trying to keep Emily calm while watching the show every week.
“He fell in love pretty early on,” Emily explains. “I just feel like some of that stuff should have been saved for me.”
So Emily is trying to take things slow — and that’s why she is not moving across the country to Brad’s hometown of Austin just yet.
But yes, Brad and Emily are still a couple — and they both agree that they are still engaged and will get married one day. And the reason Emily wasn’t wearing the ring was because it was being sized!
“I’ve always been engaged to this woman,” Brad says. “I’m not letting her go. I’m fighting for her. I finally found my girl. She has my heart — always will.”
“It’s certainly not all roses, but I’m confident about how I feel about him,” Emily says.”I really do love him.”
