In the finale of The Bachelor, Emily Maynard and Womack got engaged and seemed ready for their “happily ever after. But in the After the Final Rose special, Maynard told guest Chris Harrison that she wasn’t ready to get married yet.

The Bachelor: Emily and Brad Break Up After ‘The Bachelor’
After The Bachelor, Emily Maynard and Brad Womack had a hard time staying together. Speaking with People Magazine in March 2011, Womack admitted that he and Maynard broke up and got back together several times.
“There have been numerous times she or I have said, ‘To hell with it. It’s too hard,” said Womack, for ABC News. “We’ve thrown in the towel, we broke up. But at the end of every day, I’d call and say, “I know you might not like me today, but I love you.”
Maynard also revealed The Bachelor’s revival, which made her realize that Womack was saying the same things to other women that he would say to her. “I felt less and less special,” Maynard said. “You’re not sure what’s real and what television reality is.”
At the time, Maynard and Womack insisted that their relationship progressed after The Bachelor. However, the couple called off their engagement in June 2011. Then, talking to People about the breakup, Maynard said, “Just because we love each other doesn’t mean we belong together.
Meanwhile, Womack believed he was the cause of the breakup. “The end of our relationship was completely my fault,” he said. Then the former bachelor revealed he had a temper.
“I would have gotten so angry and felt almost violated,” said Womack, according to Complex. “I would keep those feelings bottled up, and when I had a chance to talk to Em… I would let that negative emotion come out, and it was almost as if she had been attacked.
