Here’s what happened to Love Is Blind couples! – UPDATE

First comes love (in the pods), then comes marriage (for some), and then comes … a baby in a baby carriage?

Love Is Blind season 2 couples

Kyle Abrams and Shaina Hurley

“We don’t really talk. We don’t communicate,” Kyle exclusively told Us in February 2022. “There’s nothing left. I mean, we’re not friends or anything. She doesn’t come out much. That ship has sailed.”

After debuting her relationship with Christos Lardakis in March 2022, the twosome exchanged vows at a Chicago courthouse that July and had a second ceremony in Greece that same month. Kyle, meanwhile, has been linked to Deepti, confirming during the After the Altar episodes, which started streaming in September 2022, that they are seeing each other.

Three days after After the Altar started streaming, he confirmed the duo quietly split — and he had a new girlfriend. “Since After the Altar was filmed, we had decided to go our separate ways in early summer. Thank you to everyone who has followed our journey through arduous vulnerability and has supported us along the way,” Kyle wrote. “I have since embarked on a new relationship which I intend to keep private for a bit.”

Deepti Vempati and Abhishek ‘Shake’ Chatterjee

After Shake admitted he was not physically attracted to his fiancée throughout season 2, Deepti said “no” during the finale.

Shake debuted his relationship with Emily Wilson in March 2022, while Deepti started seeing Kyle, revealing on the After the Altar special that he’s husband material. Deepti and Kyle, however, split after several weeks of dating.

Salvador ‘Sal’ Perez and Mallory Zapata

Sal called off his engagement to Mallory during the February 2022 season 2 finale. He’s been dating Jessica Palkovic for more than a year now.

Shayne Jansen and Natalie Lee

Love Is Blind season 3 couples

Brennon & Alexa: Happily Married

Now this is the picture-perfect ending everyone wants to see from this experiment! Alexa and Brennon got married in the finale, and they reveal during the reunion they’re better than ever. They’re living together and had their first fight over dirty dishes but got over it pretty quickly. These two are so in love, and their romance deserves to be protected at all costs. However, do not ask them if they’re having a baby — they do want to become parents soon but Alexa is not pregnant (yet).

Raven & SK: It’s… complicated??

During the finale, SK said “I don’t” at the altar because of the circumstances surrounding his relationship with Raven. He was about to move to California for grad school and didn’t want to put the pressure of a long-distance marriage on Raven. Raven didn’t know SK was going to reject her at the altar, and SK reveals during the reunion that he didn’t know what he was going to say until that very moment.

However, they got back together after the non-wedding and they are currently dating. They didn’t hook up during their engagement, and waited until after their wedding day to get physical. They’re in love and still together while doing long-distance.

In November 2022, the pair announced via social media that they had called it quits amid allegations that SK had cheated on Raven.

Matt & Colleen: Married but living separately

The only other couple to say “I do” at the altar was Colleen and Matt, and during the reunion they reveal they’re still together. However, they are not living together… yet. It’s purely for financial reasons though. As neither one wanted to break their lease early and Colleen currently lives with roommates and didn’t want to screw them over by leaving suddenly. They do have plans to move in together soon.

Cole & Zanab: Officially done

The least surprising update is that Zanab and Cole did not get married, and there is no chance of a romantic reconciliation. However, this couple did share the most shocking revelations during the reunion about what happened in their relationship that fans didn’t see in the episodes this season.

During the finale, Zanab left Cole at the altar with a searing speech about how he destroyed her self-confidence and didn’t treat her with respect. And all her friends applauded her and walked out as well.

The reunion is the first time Zanab and Cole have seen or even spoken to each other since the wedding. And during the reunion, Zanab reveals she developed an eating disorder as a result of Cole body-shaming her, but he denies everything she says about how badly he treated her during their relationship, arguing that she wouldn’t have stayed with him for as long as she did if things were that bad between them. He also calls her “crazy” and “insane,” and Brennon and other cast members tell Cole not to use those words to describe Zanab.

Most of the rest of the cast supports Zanab and drags Cole for how he treated her. Even the producers are on Zanab’s side, as a scene is shown before the credits of one of the moments Zanab brought up of Cole’s body shaming and comments about her eating, and it’s exactly the way she said it played out. Cole had denied that moment ever happened, and said producers should show the footage if it existed. It does, and they did.

Ultimately, Cole breaks down in tears, apologizes to the entire cast, and says he’s working on himself and hopes he can be friends with everyone going forward. He also says he regrets going on the show if he destroyed someone’s (a.k.a. Zanab’s) self esteem. Zanab tells Cole she completely forgives him, but he still says he wouldn’t do this show again if he had the chance to go back and change things because watching it back “destroyed” him.

Bartise & Nancy: Officially done

Sweet, generous, forgiving Nancy said “I do” at the altar, only for Bartise to blindside her and say “I don’t.” Nancy’s family immediately confronted Bartise while Nancy begged them to give her a moment alone to talk with him, and their wedding disaster became more dramatic than a soap opera plot.

As a result of Bartise doing exactly what he promised Nancy he wouldn’t (i.e. blindsiding her and humiliating her in front of her family), Nancy reveals during the reunion that they’re done for good. Bartise says that watching the episodes back, he was actually rooting for their relationship to work, which only causes Nancy to break down in tears because she reveals that literally the day after their wedding, she saw a video on social media of Bartise already with another woman. Bartise admits he did hook up with that woman but says that was his way of “coping” with the breakup, and it’s no one’s business who he’s with after they broke up. But the rest of the cast and even Nick and Vanessa Lachey say the timing of how quickly he hooked up with someone else was not okay.
