As for the toughest challenge they’ve faced in the real world? Navigating the holidays, according to Lemieux, who resides in Texas with Alfia.

“My family lives so far away, so it’s like, ‘How long are we spending in this person’s house? When are we leaving and when are the Cowboys playing?'” he joked. , yeah, it’s just navigating normal life together, but I wouldn’t do it with anyone else.”

As soon as I saw him crying, walking down the aisle, I didn’t hesitate. As soon as we passed the eyes, when I saw it, I had the overwhelming feeling of knowing that it was my person.

For his part, Bolton said “the hardest thing navigating” the real world with Reed was adjusting to each other’s lifestyles.

“You do certain things on the weekends when you’re single that you want to do in a relationship,” he explained. “So you have to quit – like, for me, it was playing golf. I hardly play golf now. So it’s just merging stuff like that.
