For those who have been following the romantic couplings on ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise, you know that Katie Morgan and Chris Bukowski have had their ups and downs.

Katie pushed Chris away in the beginning of their relationship and then Chris began to have second thoughts. However, the couple remained together throughout the season finale. It was then that Chris and Katie shared their love for each other and Chris got down on one knee to propose. Happily ever after, right?

Fast forward to the live season finale of After the Final Rose and things were rocky between the two. While the two were still engaged, Katie removed her engagement ring during the taping and a backstage argument had them walking away from each other.

In real life, Katie took to Instagram following After the Final Rose and shared her feelings about where the two are in their relationship today.

“As you’ve seen..It’s been the furthest from easy. From the decision to take the leap onto the beach, navigating what was real and staying true to myself, and my world that spun out afterward. None of it has been a walk in the park,” Katie shared in her post. “BUT I’ve learned, a lot. I’ve learned to be more direct, how to challenge myself and others, I’ve learned that I’m empathetic to a fault, that love languages are so important to understanding others, that self sabotage can be found in many forms, and BOY have I learned what patience looks like. But most of all, I’ve learned that happiness isn’t something to look for in your partner. Your partner can make you laugh but your partner is not responsible for your happiness. Happiness is found within and sharing that with each other is what lights up a room! Communication is the link to everything, which is something we sure did LACK in paradise and shortly after.”

She went on to update fans about her relationship with Chris.

:It took us a few months to really get our bearings (especially with some exceptional and unexpected challenges). I know none of you will truly understand why things are the way they are but I ask that you trust me and support me as I navigate this new world of mine. Because I’m happy with me and we are finally happy with us. We have grown so much in our friendship and now in our relationship since that day. Like I said to both of our parents and I will say to you- I can’t promise you this relationship will be perfect (it won’t be/ it isn’t) and I can’t promise we will last forever. Honestly, some relationships don’t last after 20 years and some do, that’s life. But what I can promise you is that I take this seriously, won’t lose myself, I will always try my best, I will always keep it real, and we will have each other’s backs. Thank you for following us through this journey of hope, faith, all of the next phases of life and more importantly – love ♥️ cheers to an effing INSANE adventure.

Chris also took to Instagram to say a few words.

“Love is tough,” he began. “Love is beautiful. Most importantly love is patient. Sometimes you need a shock to the system to put a fire under your ass. What I felt then I feel even more now. I love you @katieemo and can’t wait to feed you pizza for the rest of our lives. #BachelorInParadise.”

Congrats to the happy couple on finding love.
