Another one bites the dust, Bachelor Nation.

After finding one another on season 20 of The Bachelor and having the early days of their engagement documented on the Freeform series Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have announced that they've broken up.

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways," the couple told People in a joint statement Monday. "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." 

The pair dodged rumors of turmoil back in late January, with Higgins writing the chatter off as "fake news" on Instagram. So why split now?

"They just wanted different things. They had been struggling for a while...It was a mutual break up for the most part," a source close to Bushnell told E! News. "I think Ben would have kept wanting to make it work, though. It's really sad. They're both such great people, honestly."

While it may seem like if lovebirds Ben and Lauren can't make it work, there's no hope for anyone else from the franchise, there still are some success stories to celebrate. So which couples are still together and which have called it quits? Time for a Bachelor Nation status check.
