    I can't remember how it all went down with Jolly and Ty.
    And I respect that - but they're talking out of both sides of their mouths - interviews indicate that they're 'rock solid', planning on having more children and heading towards marriage. It's all over the place - are they 'getting to know each other better' before bringing Ricki into the mix, or are they a fully engaged couple working towards having a family - that's where I get confused.

    Secondly, if Emily felt she and Brad have some issues when it comes to communicating(after reading ppl it is not as horrific as it may have sounded) would it not stand to reason that she is doing the right thing for her and her daughter, now that Em and Brad are able to be a couple in the REAL world for Em to get to know Brad better and work on their communication skills first, then acculmate lil Rikki into the whole picture slowly?
    Ricki is going from it being her and Mommy just the two of them, to HER ,MOMMY and now MR Brad. When it comes to children you make this kind of transition slowly, it is not something you do over nite. Again JMO
    Totally agree.

    Emily is doing the right thing and props to her. Brad has already said that he will be alternating between A and Ch and they (the girls) will too. So they seem to be taking the right steps and making it work.

    It is early days yet. They cannot accomplish their entire plan in a matter of a week which is all that it has been. So folks need to take a step back.

    I just love this couple and love the way everything played out both during the ATFR and in real life.

    If they in fact do not make it, at least they tried and more power to them. IMO let us wait and see after a month if the brakes are completely on or we get the standard announcement for a Bachelor Break up like we have had for 17 seasons prior .

    For now, all looks good and I hope they are happy.

    Heck even "normal" folk like us have our daily pow-pows and I for one have been married 17 years, 2 handsome boys later and dating him (after High School) for 8 prior which makes it 25 years with just one guy ever, still have our squabbles and post-fight silences but I think the sun and the moon shine on him anyway so what Brad and Em are going through is nothing out of the ordinary - its reality LOL.

    They talk about it in the People interview. Her dad was there. It almost sounded like he brought him to the winery. Brad said he wanted to get her father's blessing and he told her dad he was madly in love with Emily. Emily is then quoted saying something like, her father who is super - manly was brought to tears when he saw them together. Apparently he really like Brad. Since Emily knew about this and was there as well kinda makes me think she knew she was going to be F1 ahead of time. Why else fly her dad all the way to SA if he is just going to dump her.

    Did not say anything about Mom.

    RS did post about it and maybe even Brad... just adding that in People they elaborated a little more.

    I would imagine they want to spend some time together to see if yes it will work and then involve Rickie. Rickie does not need to be involved in a relationship if it is not going to work early on. I would imagine if it is improving, in the next week or two Brad will go to N.C.

    CH said that they will be doing what Jason and Molly did for awhile. My guess is until school is out.

    Jolly took it slow and they did the long distance thing for a while between Seattle and Michigan. Then Molly moved to Seattle.
    Jason has stated, they had to slowly bring Ty into the picture so that Ty could understand and acclumate to the situation as well.

    The more I try to make sense of their situation the more confused I get.

    I think the biggest red flag was on the ATFR show when what Emily was saying (throwing the ILY around) didn't fit with how she looked. I just don't think she's feeling what Brad feels and is pulling away emotionally. I do think if she feels that way it's probably for the best if she's not involving Ricki. If I'm wrong then Ricki should be coming with her to Austin in the future and seeing Brad in his environment. School is important but she's in kindergarten for heaven's sake and taking her out for a few days here and there is absolutely an option.

    I am there with you. I have been with mine 30 years. We have our arguments (some of those are loud but never violant) and always work them out. I would not trade him for anything. Most folks have arguments. There is nothing wrong with them as they are a way of working through disagreements..

    Emily and Brad seem so real to me. Some of the other couples called it quits by now without working on their issues. I am hoping we have one that makes it for real. They need space and a little time.

    Plus as I said above, this is the 1st step. Brad and Emily taking time in the real world as a couple to figure things out. Emily is smart. If she does not feel that confidence she will not bring her daughter into this.

    We still have to wait and see how step 2 plays out. It maybe already in the works or may never take place. Still early days yet.

    In the meantime, it is great to see them together socialising like other couples and her getting a feel of Brads life. She will do the right thing for her and her daughter all said and done.

    Why you can't believe a word of what they say at this stage of filming/wrap up (from the contract):

    I understand and agree that confidentiality is paramount to the nature
    of the Series and the Series brand. Furthermore, I understand that my actions
    and the actions of other participants in the Series (including those who have
    appeared on past seasons of the Bachelor and/or the Bachelorette) after
    participating in the Series directly impact the Series and/or the Series
    brand. Therefore, I represent, warrant and agree that in the event that I
    enter into a personal relationship, including without limitation a romantic
    relationship, with the Bachelor or with any other participant past, present or
    future on the Bachelor and/or the Bachelorette, or with any production
    personnel of AND, NEXT Entertainment, Warner Horizon, Telepictures
    Productions, Inc., the Series or any related entities, including without
    limitation, production staff, producers and/or production executives, I shall
    not, except with AND’s prior approval, for a period of two years following the
    date of the initial North American broadcast of the final episode of the
    Series arc in which I appear, publicly disclose any details of such
    relationship(s), including without limitation, the existence of such
    relationship, any information about the relationship, the details of or
    reasons for any “break-up” (if such a “break-up” occurs) of such
    relationship(s).
