“Reader Emails,” Andi’s Book, Another Contestant Blames Editing, & the Next “Bachelor”

They live together in Orange County, they are engaged, everyone of their family members that was flown down to Mexico that day was paid for as were their accommodations. So did the wedding we saw on TV legally bind them as a couple? I guess not according to that story, but they are a couple and living together and are planning a ceremony in the states when Marcus returns from Coast Guard boot … Continue reading
