How Long Did Every 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' Couple Stay Together After the Finale?

As viewers anticipate Nick Viall's decision between Raven Gates and Vanessa Grimaldi on the Monday, March 13, season 21 finale of ABC's The Bachelor, Us Weekly is taking a look back at past Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, from Alex Michel and Amanda Marsh in 2002 to JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers in 2016.

Will two-time Bachelorette runner-up Viall and his leading lady join the seven Bachelor Nation couples who are still with the partners they chose on their finales? Or will they go the way of the other 25 pairs? Take a look at how every Bachelor and Bachelorette couple has fared through the years:
