The happy couple are self distancing!
Bachelor alum Ben Higgins reveals his set up during quarantine with fiancée Jessica Clarke, and shares details of their relationship. Presently, the two are with Clarke's family in Tennessee.
Higgins appeared on another Bachelor alumni Nick Viall's podcast The Viall Files, to talk about life in quarantine.
Higgins revealed that not only are he and Clarke sleeping in separate beds, but they are also saving themselves until marriage.
“Right now she has a bedroom upstairs at her parents’ house, I’m in the downstairs,” Higgins said.
Sleeping apart isn't a foreign concept to the couple, as the two have been in a long distance relationship for the entirety of their coupling.
When asked if the two have had sex in the past week, Higgins denied it, even going on to share more intimate details.
"Definitely not this week, and not in the last like, year and a half,” he shared.
Viall’s co-host pressed Higgins on the matter asking, “Are you guys waiting until you get married?”
“Yeah,” Higgins answered. “Yeah, you’re right.”
While Higgins was hoping their engagement would have been short, with the uncertainties that lie with how long the lockdown will last, the couple have been forced to take a backseat on wedding plans.
“It could be here another two months, two and a half months, at that point, weddings are going to be pushed back, venues are going to be booked, and I don’t want to add stress to a really fun and joyful time knowing that this is the real deal,” he shared.
The two have also considered eloping with only close family members, but ultimately will leave it up to the bride-to-be.
“That could be fun and exciting and a lot less stress,” he said, “but at the end of all of this, this is Jess’ day.”
