I for one am really dissappointed to hear this.
I may be in the minority, but I liked them a lot as a couple, both during the show & after. They handled the media attacks & rumor-mongering with such class, & seemed to put their own love & relationship above all the garbage. This shows a character that other Bachelor/Bachelorette couples just don't seem to have.
I had high hopes for them & wanted to see them prove all the naysayers wrong. I hope they can pull it back together, but I doubt it. Usually when a relationship has trouble enough for a separation this early on, it just doesn't bounce back.
Men, at least, have a habit of giving up & moving on rather quickly, rather than changing the problems & trying to fix things.
