    Even Ali who knew Roberto was the one she would say would admit, I'm sure that the real relationship grows later. The show can be how you met your mate. Not where you built even the foundation of marriage.
    how is a proposal not a real engagement? For all intents and purposes, when a man proposes to a woman and puts a ring on that finger, they are engaged. He's even saying he's engaged - or at least someone is.

    Other leads have made this promise to date without the benefit of a proposal.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that in the later episodes when Emily's walls have dropped and they have that kind of time together... I understand why he said that as in talking all night. Eyes were too tired to have had a great deal of sleep...

    I agree with both of you. I'm just leaning toward the engagement being a little more serious to Brad because he is the one who would not even commit to a relationship of any kind the first go round. I mean we haven't seen the FRC but with that ring described, he's serious about something!

    I rewatched that line and one second hearing I didn't get the idea that he was speaking in recent terms. Maybe it was meant that at some point during the show he had felt she'd be one of the girls meeting his family? I thought the intonation was more past tense.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    ITA & I think they are engaged & it might be a short one, hey he's 38 & she has a kid, they might just get married faster than we think!!

    That's the same impression i got.

    Brad and Ashley's first date went so well that he really thought at that moment that she would be in his F2. But throughout the process her edit pointed to her leaving before.

    Brad tends to, or maybe its the way he has been edited, to sound as if he's still feeling the way he felt months ago, eventhough things have clearly changed...just one more thing about him i don't get.

    I didn't get that sense at all - he also said she was supposed to be one of the final 2 girls - he made about 3 references in total. I rewatched it last night because I thought I remembered he said it more than once and he did. How is that not in recent terms - why say that after he just let her go?? I didn't like it when we heard it from Ali about Frank, and I don't like Brad doing it either.

    you think maybe that's just TPTB replaying the same line over and over again to create doubt?

    I felt the same way. Brad was talking to Chantal on their FD and seemed to say that she would meet his family.

    It wasn't the same line - he said she was supposed to meet his family - and he said she was supposed to be one of the final 2 girls - different words, same meaning.
