Perhaps they are doing just fine in private. No one can say whether Mary wants or really wanted kids, based on comments on The Bachelor, and I doubt anyone has any inside info if either or both of them have any desire to get married. They are still together after five years, so something must be working for them. You can get some updates on Byron's fishing blog. Something old, something new - ESPN

What am I?
I'm in Las Vegas with Mary — she's taking some well-deserved time off — practicing on Lake Mead for the U.S. Open next weekJune 12, 2009
A Word from Mary
Mary Delgado here. I'm covering this week for Byron while he's fishing the Mississippi River. And I'll tell you I couldn't be happier that I'm doing it. It's a labor of love.
As most of you know, Byron has had three good events in a row and is now ranked 15th in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings. That's way up from where he was earlier in the year, and, barring a complete disaster in the last two tournaments, it means we'll be returning to the Classic next February.
I think most of Byron's success is because he's now concentrating on his fishing like never before. It's been about three years since he bought Lake Amistad Resort and over one since he bought into the boat dealership down there. Those business deals really distracted him.What I'm trying to say is that the more I'm around professional bass fishing and professional bass anglers, the more impressed I become. These guys have it tough. There's nothing easy about it. They have to juggle a lot of balls at the same time to be successful.
Byron has found a way to do that this year. I'm really proud of him — not so much because he's catching fish but because of how he's managing his career.
