These two couples have something in common: They're no longer together, but out of the heartbreak and sadness, an indestructible friendship between the two women rose from the ashes of the broken relationships!

Vempati and Chatterjee called it quits after Vempati said 'I don't' and chose herself at the altar. Her relationship with Chatterjee was plagued by insecurity, fueled by his many comments about her physical appearance; he later went on a podcast to reveal he "felt more like a man" because he could pick up his post-show girlfriend. He also memorably compared his sexual attraction to Vempati to being intimate with a family member.

Lee and Jansen endured multiple issues in their relationship on-screen. Lee felt Jansen was still attracted to his 'pod' date, Shania Hurley, even after proposing to Lee. Jansen's alcohol use remained a sour spot in their relationship; the duo allegedly fought on the night before their wedding, in which his drinking played a strong role.

The fourth season of "Love Is Blind" will be released on the platform on Friday, March 24th! The fourth season cast is predicted to be spicy; according to our recent report, the new crop of hopeful spouses ranges from self-proclaimed "bratty and emotional" singles to teeth-flossing aficionados!
