Vow Renewal Surprise – Trista and Ryan 10 Years Later

Television shows have been bringing couples together for years. The Dating Game first started introducing bacheloretts to eligible men way back in 1965. Relationships joined the wave of reality shows with such shows as Dismissed, Married by America, and The Bachelorette. While these televised relationships made for good reality television, they didn’t often make for good relationships in real life. In fact, between ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, they have brought together 24 couples. Of those number, only five are still together. But even though the statistics look bad, some matches made on television can be matches made in heaven.

Ten years ago Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter met in front of 26 million viewers on The Bachelorette. It was the first season of the program, and the couple tied the knot in a million-dollar wedding hosted by ABC. But the televised ceremony, the high-profile status, and the large amount of publicity didn’t change the fact that this couple were truly in love. Once the cameras were off, and the public turned its attention to the next couple, Trista and Ryan settled down into their happy new life.

Now, ten years later, Trista and Ryan have celebrated by holding a vow renewal to show the world how happy they still are. After ten years together, they are still madly in love and claim that they live a normal life with their two children, ages six and four. Trista has even written a book about the success of their marriage in spite of the unusual beginning. Ryan claims he is the luckiest man in the world and can’t imagine life without Trista. The vow renewal was filmed in their hometown of Vail, Colorado and will be televised on the ABC special The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories.

But your relationship doesn’t have to be televised or famous to want to renew your vows. Many couples who reach milestones in their marriages decide to recommit to each other through vow renewal.
