Have we had any examples of where the F1 and F2 have remained friends beyond the engagement? That seems implausible to me. It makes for a feel-good AFTR, but I dunno that it ever continues in real life.
Emily's brother looks like their dad and Emily resembles her mom, more. Anyone know how long the Maynards have been divorced and if either one has remarried? And that was the brother's fiancee, right? The family meetings just seemed shorter than they have been in the past. I haven't read through all the posts but Arie was so, so nervous during the family meeting, which totally surprised me as he is usually very calm and collected. Two strange things about the final, final rose ceremony....why did they have that awful platform as the proposal site? Normally, it's some wind swept cliff and they were surrounded by water so why not on the ocean? Also, it was odd that poor Jef had to walk there on his own in his spiffy suit... they couldn't spring for a limo?
Just listening to Emily talk about how she wasn't planning to introduce either of the men to her daughter. Seriously? And she's expecting a proposal?? If you need to take more time before the introduction, take it. But don't expect a man to promise that he will love you forever and take care of your daughter as his own if you're not ready for them to meet. That's totally unfair.
I realize she decided to go ahead with it but honestly there is no way I would commit to marrying a man with a child I hadn't even met!
Also, why aren't Ashley & JP married yet? They had said they were going to do it sooner rather than later. Tonight almost seems as if they're simply riding out their contract with ABC. No wedding date set, nothing. Just appearances. It could just be normal delays, but I can't help feel that when you're an adult and you know you love someone FOREVER, you want to make it an official marriane as soon as you know it's a forever-relationship.
And why did DeAnna appear tonight? That was a little sad. A two-time contestant still unmarried yet still getting paid by the franchise to opine.

I came into this season very sceptical, thinking oh great little miss Nascar Barbie, do I really want to watch this? BUT Em grew on me and I fell in love with Jef and I love them together, this became my most favorite season of all. Color me navie but I think Emily and Jef are the real deal
I think JP and Ben are pretty good friends. They've gotten together when Ben's in NY according to twitter.
