Though the Bachelor franchise doesn't have the smoothest track record when it comes to creating long-term relationships, Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are one of the rare success stories. After meeting and falling in love on Rachel's season of The Bachelorette, they got married last August at a ceremony held at Mexico's Royalton Suites Cancun. (Naturally, there were plenty of Bachelor alums in attendance.)
Since then, the couple have returned to their home in Miami — where they relocated after temporarily living in Rachel's hometown of Dallas, Texas — and have both been keeping busy with their careers. Along with co-hosting Game Night on ESPN Radio and MTV's Ghosted, Rachel is a special correspondent for Extra. She also continues to stay in the Bachelor/ette mix with her Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, which she hosts alongside fellow former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky-Manno. Bryan, meanwhile, still works as a chiropractor, and he's also a fitness coach under the name Dr. Abs. Like his wife, he has a podcast on the side: Dr. Abs Healthcast.
If you haven't been keeping up with the couple's day-to-day lives, however, you might be in need of a few more updates. Here's what they've been doing since tying the knot.

Amid the Black Lives Matter protests in June, Rachel revealed that she and Bryan have had some “tough discussions” when it comes to race and how they plan to raise their future children as an interracial couple. Both Bachelor alums are vocal members of the Black Lives Matter movement and participated in protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death. "It was important for me that we did it together, because we are one unit. We're married,” Rachel told Entertainment Tonight. "It was also marching for our future, our future child, who will be Black. I don't know if they'll be a male or female, but they may face some of these injustices that we're experiencing right now. So, we're marching for our future family, and that's what was representative of what we went out there and did that day.”
August 2020: Rachel Becomes A Florida Resident
Yes, Bryan is from Miami, but that's not the only reason Rachel became an official Florida resident: it also allows her to vote in a crucial swing state. “Today, I became a Florida resident. Why...for the sole purpose of voting,” she captioned a recent Instagram post. “I will be posting weekly about the ways to register to vote, tools for voting, voting early and why it is important. Tag a friend and spread the word!!!”
The couple also celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary in August. "One year + FOREVER...I love you and I am beyond thankful for you," Rachel wrote to Bryan on Instagram.
