The Bachelor: Black and White Finale

March 15, 2011 | Elizabeth

One came wearing black and the other wearing white. But the finale was anything but a clear decision.

If you’ve been following The Bachelor this season or my posts online, you may have been able to see how Chantal O. and Emily fit into Brad’s life as The Bachelor. Chantal O. was honest, tough, care free and it always seemed like they had a lot of fun together. Emily was a bit more reserved, sweet, genuine and a mother of a 5-year-old. The two women both had been through tragedy-a divorce and a loss of a loved one. And, the both seemed to be really amazing women-but complete opposites.

When the women met Brad’s family, it seemed like they were sold on Chantal O. because she seemed to make Brad so happy…and then they were sold on Emily when she called Brad ‘her angel.’

But then the decision had to be made….and Brad said he had really only feel in love with one of the women…Emily.

I can’t imagine what it was like to be Chantal O., with the pressure of dating a man hanging out with multiple women and having either everything you want-a new life, a new love, a wedding…to having nothing at all…just a ride home in the backseat of a limo.

But, I do feel like we can all relate to her. Dating these days is never black and white. Whether or not you are just dating or in a serious relationship-it seems like so many things are becoming obstacles these days and threatening to break your relationship down.

What do you feel like threatens relationships these days? What advice do you have to help them last?
