Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Flecther, who met and fell in love on The Bachelorette season 12, have not attracted much publicity since getting engaged and it looks like they intend to keep things that way. Unlike other couples from the Bachelor franchise who would jump at the chance to say "I do" in front of the cameras, Rodgers would opt not to marry Fletcher on TV if he had it his way.
"That's something we would have to discuss together but very honestly, my first reaction would be that I would probably rather not," Rodgers told The Hollywood Reporter
. "There's a distinct intimacy and privacy and it's a very special moment with family and friends, and I wouldn't want anything to tarnish that or to take away from that. It's a time that I want to be able to honor my fiancee and soon-to-be wife and her family, and I want it to be ours. I want us to run the show and make sure it's always what we imagined. If there's a way to do that and include fans, great. But that wouldn't be my first wish."
Still, Rodgers and Fletcher are taking their sweet time before they tie the knot. The former Bachelorette star is currently flipping houses while Rodgers works as an analyst on SEC Saturday Night on the SEC Network. They're admittedly still getting used to life in Dallas away from the cameras and are enjoying the courting stage of their relationship.
"The commitment to each other is absolutely still there and that's something we are going to do," he said "We're also figuring out our life. We're learning more about each other every single day, what our life is going to look like and where it's going to be. Both of our careers and what we're passionate about. So we're enjoying this time of being engaged, continuing to date and court each other, and getting to know each other even more. And then when the time is right, we're absolutely going to sit down and start planning that."
Are you happy for them? Do you think marriage is still in the cards for Fletcher and Rodgers?
