Spoilers for ‘Love is Blind’ Season 3
DALLAS, TEXAS: As Netflix’s beloved dating show ‘Love Is Blind’ closed curtains on Season 3, viewers are taking stock of the roller-coaster ride of ups and downs they witnessed this season. On D-day though, of the five love stories that unfolded, only two made it into their ‘happily ever after’ as three couples tragically broke up. Among the lucky couples that said their “I do’s” were Matt Bolton and Colleen Reed.
The pair have taken many tumbles along the road but seemed to stand strong together as the couple decided to get married in the show’s season finale. Their vows were met with plenty of emotional tears from their friends and family, who cheered as they were declared husband and wife. Although considered quite controversial with the fans, this couple seems to be going strong even as they graced the reunion special of ‘Love Is Blind’ Season 3. But a tiny detail regarding the couple’s living arragenment does seem a little unorthodox. During the reunion, Matt and Colleen revealed to hosts Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey that the pair resides in separate homes even after marriage.
As the contestants gathered one last time for a ‘Love Is Blind’ Season 3 reunion to answer some burning questions, Matt and Colleen huddled together on one of the couches. As the conversation bounced from topic to topic, such as Bartise Bowden’s rebound rumours and Cole and Zanab’s unfortunate relationship, it soon shifted to Mr and Mrs Bolton’s tumultuous relationship and their journey on the show.
Upon being asked how their relationship has been going after marriage, Matt noted that a few day-to-day arguments do indeed crop up in their newly married life. Nick pointed out that it’s normal to have small arguments when you share a home with someone. But Matt interjected by stating that the couple do not live together.
Matt said, “We actually do not live together yet. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s really just doing it on our own time.” Nick then posed the question, “Is that a mutual decision?” Colleen responded that they’re “very much on the same page.” She continued to tell everyone that “logistics and money wise”, the couple were not “there yet.” She stated, “We weren’t money-wise ready to give up on our leases.” Vanessa then pointed out that living together and combining rent seems like a better option money-wise, to which Matt said, “One of us would have to cancel one of our leases if we wanted to move in with the other.” While Colleen chipped in with, “And I was with roommates, so I would’ve s*****d over some people, so it’s a very complicated kinda situation.” She continued, “But, you know we got married in an unorthodox way, so we’re doing marriage in an unorthodox way.”
Matt also shared that the couple does not have a “central address” yet, but they stay together six days a week. Colleen noted they’re not together on Monday when it’s laundry day. She further elaborated on their situation, saying, “We have a plan in a couple of months, we made sure our leases line up, the same amount of time, and we are going to move in together.” She continued to share that she “can’t wait” to move in with her husband, also noting that the duo are content and on the same page with their commitment to each other.
