For shows all about looking for true love, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have a pretty abysmal track record when it comes to couples that stand the test of time.
But for all the many Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell pairs, there's still a few Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter love stories that give contestants hope that they, too, could find forever love on reality TV.
And with Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season finale (airing on ABC Monday, March 5, at 8 p.m. ET) promising to be drama-filled and controversial, Bachelor Nation might need a reminder that sometimes, contestants are there for the "right reasons."
Keep scrolling to see which Bachelor and Bachelorette couples are still going strong today.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney1comments
After season 13 of The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick wasn't the most popular guy in Bachelor Nation, having picked Melissa Rycroft before breaking up her to instead date the runner-up, Molly Malaney.
But it appears Mesnick made the right choice. He and Malaney tied the knot in 2010 in a televised ceremony, and Molly took on the role of stepmother to Jason's son Ty. In 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Riley, together, and the couple remains together.prev
