The Bachelor and The Bachelorette can remind you that love...is complicated.
The latest drama comes from the most recent The Bachelor couple, Ben Higgins and winner Lauren Bushnell. The two got engaged on the season 20 finale this past March. Millions of viewers saw him propose to her with an estimated $95,000, 4.25-carat, platinum square-cut halo-style diamond Neil Lane engagement ring. The two now star on the Freeform reality show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?
On Tuesday's episode, Higgins told Bushnell he wanted to call off their wedding.
"I feel like we have so much to figure out that it's hard for me at this point to really feel comfortable getting married," he said.
"So you're saying the wedding is off?" she asked.
"Yeah," he replied. "I am."
The couple remains together.
"I'm not leaving you," Higgins told Bushnell. "I'm not. Don't think that for a second."
She later said, that "if Ben needs a little more time to feel comfortable getting married, that he should really have it because in the end, it won't matter if this wedding's a little bit later."
Overall, just three out of 20 The Bachelor couples and five out of 12 The Bachelorette pairs remain together today. So that's a 15 percent success rate for The Bachelor and 41 percent success rate for the latter.
Several The Bachelor and The Bachelorette couples have gone on to wed and live happily ever after together—examples include Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter and Catherine Giudice and Sean Lowe.

Neither couple has announced a wedding date.
The latter pair told E! News in October they're still stuck on picking a wedding location.
"We're just enjoying being together right now," Fletcher said.
