The fact he chose the woman who has a child says he is ready to settle down or else Emily though beautiful and charismatic would have been a goner about the third week when he found out about her child.
The People Mag. article is something worth reading and probably is closer to the truth than anything else that has been rumored or exaggerated.
I agree, Emily would have been gone:\
1.If Brad was not ready for a child
2. If Emily did not fall in love with Brad he never would have made it to NC (IMO)!!
I bought into RS's "story" for quite some time this season. I did not become suspicious of RS until I viewed the "Brad and Emily Get Closer" deleted scene. It was then that the light bulb went off.
Going back and viewing all of the interactions between the two, it was pretty evident from the moment AFTER she told him about her past on their first 1 on 1, that she and Brad had begun their connection.
For Emily it intensified in Vegas at the cocktail party after he confronted her about letting go of her past and she thought he was "runnin' for the hills". He did not and he gave her the rose. She stated after wards she was starting to fall. The night in Anguilla sealed the deal.
Everyone relies on their friends to prop you up in times of need. Her friends were doing the opposite and tearing her down. She must have felt like she was in hell.
Emily only had one person to lean on... Brad. Brad admittedly was trying to do the best he could in helping Emily, but soon too became frustrated because he missed her so much he sometimes took the stress out on her and vice versa.
SAVE THE WHALES..THE OCEANS DIE..WE DIE!!!
Go wherever you go...... WITH ALL YOUR HEART
I'm ready for the bach'ette Ash, now. My son is going to kill me if he lands on FORT these days seeing my new avatar
I to will miss the sleuthing board. Having read from before the show started airing, (love the things MR. Write found) I knew Chantal was supposed to be the F1. I went with Chantal as F1 until the Las Vegas date. After he gave Emily the rose instead of Chantal after Chantal had asked to be sent home if it wasn't her I just couldn't figure out how it was Chantal. For weeks later I kept telling my husband "Fort says its Chantal for F1 but I just don't see it". It wasn't until Frigde Gate that I knew what I was seeing was right. I loved the Final episode and the ATFR. What I saw was a couple in love that are figuring out how to live together. Not getting married until we were in our 30's, and both being very stubborn, I can relate to everything they were saying about learing to mesh your lives. Its hard. When we fight we can be very loud but we are never physical or abusive. I will still read Fort but I got to admit this year was definitley the worst for bashing the couple. I long for the days of measuring candles and hands and ears. Maybe one day it will become that kind of board again.
