Bachelor in Paradise stars Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch may have had some ups and downs in their relationship, but it looks like the couple is doing better than ever as an engaged couple.
Mari and Kenny both seem to be on the same page about what they want in life and the pace at which they want to achieve it. During an interview with Glamour, Mari revealed that she and Kenny are moving in together.
Even though they are 15 years apart in age, Kenny is 40 while Mari is 25, they both feel they don’t need to work much on their relationship because they are naturally a good match. Kenny implied that he barely notices the age difference between them.
Mari revealed that even though she and Kenny have both doubted their relationship at times, she knew inside that they were the real deal. “From the very beginning it was such a strong connection and such a strong feeling that I hadn’t felt so intensely, so quickly before,” she told the agency.
It sounds like Mari is on to something because she and Kenny are still going strong months after their engagement, which isn’t always the case with Bachelor Nation stores.
Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch Got Engaged On Bachelor in Paradise
Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch were one of three couples on Bachelor in Paradise to get engaged along with Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt and Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn.
Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch were one of the first couples to form on Bachelor in Paradise. However, Mari was scared of the intense feelings she had for Kenny so, as she stated, she ran away from them by pushing him away and saying that they should date other people.
Kenny did just that when Demi Burnett took him to the Boom Boom Room and Tia Booth took him on a date. Mari realized that Kenny was the real deal when she saw how much it hurt to see him dating other women.
She then apologized to him and they both pledged to be exclusive from then on. However, soon after, Kenny began to have doubts about their relationship.
