Charlie O’Connell, Sarah Brice back together, plan to marry

Usually couples who meet on The Bachelor just break up, but the unthinkable has happened: a couple who met on the show and later broke up have reunited. Bachelor 7 couple Charlie O’Connell and Sarah Brice announced their break-up last fall, but they are back together again and plan to get married.

Charlie told In Touch Weekly, “I don’t want to jinx it, but it’s going great. We are taking it slow and not taking each other for granted this time. The future looks good!” Sarah said, “There must be something special between us, because we keep coming back to one another. I’m very happy.”

Despite interviews with the two, the magazine cites “an insider” to report that “the couple reunited this summer and are planning to wed.”
