Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth from “The Bachelorette” have split after three years together. Were you rooting for them?

Breakup season is upon us, and unfortunately, it took another victim. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth from the 11th season of “The Bachelorette” broke up after a three-year engagement. What caused the seemingly happy couple to call it quits?

A source told Us Magazine that before the breakup, Bristowe and Booth’s relationship had been very rocky. Since their engagement in 2015, they have been focusing a lot on their individual careers. Kaitlyn Bristowe is the host of a podcast called “Off the Vine.” In August, Shawn Booth opened his own gym in Nashville, which, according to Bristowe, prevented him from spending the summer with her family in Canada. However, despite the distance, both seemed optimistic.

Bristowe even addressed the distance issue on her podcast, telling listeners, “If you’ve ever been a person who is running a successful brand or business and a person who is doing the same but in a different career path, you know times can be tough. You are both always away, you’re exhausted at the end of the day, sometimes the relationship isn’t being put first, but does that mean you call it quits? No. You love the s–t out of each other and you work through it — and yourselves to be better. And you know that times aren’t always going to be smooth sailing. … You just have to get through those hurdles and enjoy the good times.”

Us Magazine reports that despite their best efforts to work through it, the pair broke up in November 2018. Whether it was the separate career paths or the public nature of their relationship, it seemed they both couldn’t take it anymore. However, they are determined to stay friends. In a joint statement, they told Us Magazine on Nov. 2 that they have decided to separate after three years together and that they are “committed to remaining friends.” They also stated that they would appreciate some respect and privacy concerning their decision.

On Nov. 12, Booth addressed the breakup again in an Instagram post, saying, “I just want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of my relationship with Kaitlyn over the years. And thank you to everyone who has sent their love and support during this painful time.”

Other than Bristowe’s tearful Instagram story on Oct. 18, there were no obvious signs of trouble. Kaitlyn admits that there were so few indicators online because “you don’t tune in for the bad times.” Closer family and friends knew that their relationship was in trouble, and Kaitlyn admitted that she thought their engagement was going backwards. With the rise of love-reality shows, we have to ask if television is the best place to foster a long-lasting relationship. Are all these public relationships doomed to fail?
