The collective hearts of Bachelor Nation broke when Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell called off their engagement recently. But if there's anything I've learned about this franchise, it's that anything can happen, so Ben and Lauren could get back together. You never know when it comes to The Bachelor universe. Ben and Lauren first charmed fans when they fell in love during his season of the show and their chemistry was off the charts. After their Bachelor finale engagement, they starred in Freeform's Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? and then announced their break up in May.
“It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways,” the couple told People in an exclusive statement on May 15. “We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.” Since then, Ben and Lauren have each stated that living life apart has not been easy. "The last few months have not gone the way I would have preferred," Ben wrote on Instagram on May 30. "My relationships have changed drastically and what I envisioned my life was going to be has been redirected." In June, Lauren told People: “At the end of the day, there was a lot of hurt and pain. It was a rocky road from the start. It just didn’t feel right anymore."
But it's totally possible that these two lovebirds could find their way back to each other and here's how.
