Another season of Netflix’s top trending dating series, Love Is Blind, has come and gone and whew, that was a nailbiter! Week after week we watched as five couples fell in love sight unseen, went on a getaway together, moved in with one another and met at the altar with mixed results. It’s been a rollercoaster filled with ups, downs and tons of twists and turns. Maybe love is blurry? Now that every episode of Season 3 has dropped, including the tell-all reunion and the After The Altar episodes that caught up with all the couple one year later, we finally know how the marriage experiment shook out this time around.
We’re here to do a round up of the statuses of all the Love Is Blind Season 3 couples as the show left it following the recent After The Altar episodes, along with the stars' own updates since the series ended. Who stayed together and who didn’t work out? Let’s talk about it:
Raven And SK
The most heartbreaking wedding of the season definitely went to Raven and SK in my opinion. Following some especially emotional moments between the couple and SK’s family on the big day, SK was the one to say “I don’t” in front of their friends and family, leaving a tearful Raven to walk off the altar only to reveal she was planning on saying “yes.” These two had numerous hurdles to walk through during Love Is Blind, such as the issue of SK’s impending move for grad school to California from Texas and some notable cultural differences. Despite their dramatic wedding day, we learned during the reunion that the pair were back together and doing the long distance thing! But, man did this relationship only get twistier.
In an interview with Variety, Raven shared that after the wedding SK reached out to her saying he was “sorry” and had hoped they could “rebuild things” after their awkward wedding day. Following the events of Season 3, After The Altar showed that the couple were making a long distance relationship work between them, and SK even proposed to Raven again during the special. However, it was then shown that not long after their engagement, Raven learned SK had cheated on her and they’d since broken things off. As Raven shared with The Independent, she found out her partner had been unfaithful through TikTok, just as the scandal spread online around Thanksgiving. Suffice it to say, things didn't work out between Raven and SK, but it certainly made for some shocking television, that even threw off fellow contestant Alexa.
Nancy And Bartise
Nancy and Bartise had an awkward wedding day, too, with Nancy professing her love at the altar with an “I do” before Bartise shocked her with a biting wedding rejection immediately after. During the big day, Nancy tore off her "permanent" bracelet that they got together and proclaimed it was over between them. Following the upsetting conclusion for the pair, they had remained apart for a time.
During the reunion, Bartise shared that Nancy stuck to her guns after the wedding and made it “very clear” that she wanted nothing to do with him in terms of a romantic relationship. Though he has even gone on TikTok to call himself out for the “mess” he made of their romance, he’s also posted sweet photos of himself and Nancy during the journey.
In the After The Altar episodes, we see that Nancy and Bartise tried to be friends, but at the expense of Nancy moving on with her life. In an emotional moment with her family during one of the recent episodes, Nancy’s mother and brother gave her a good talk on why she didn’t need to keep a relationship with her former fiancé after the events of Love Is Blind, and when the pair reunited at Alexa’s birthday party, Nancy told Bartise she no longer wanted to be his friend. Bartise is now among the Netflix reality stars in the new dating show, Perfect Match, where he is looking for love elsewhere.
Zanab And Cole
Zanab and Cole are another couple that was not meant to be. Their wedding was one of the most shocking moments of the season, when Zanab told her fiancé he had “disrespected” her and “single-handedly shattered” her self confidence in front of their wedding guests, before a group of her friends clapped for her. Cole has shared that the moment made him feel “betrayed,” and as you can well imagine the pair have gone their separate ways.
Following the jaw-dropping wedding, Zanab accused Cole, at the reunion, of body-shaming her in a few moments that didn’t make it into the show in Season 3, and some of the other cast members agreed that Cole’s treatment of her during the season was unfair. Zanab has shared that she stands by everything she said at the altar and that she is not on speaking terms with Cole.
The After The Altar episodes showed that both Zanab and Cole have barely spoken since their season together and remain single. When they were reunited during Alexa’s birthday party for a followup conversation, they tied up some loose ends between them, but it’s clear this Love Is Blind match was not it.
Alexa And Brennon
These two seemed to be the first to fall in love in the pods and continue to be the couple with the most solid Love Is Blind journey of Season 3. Alexa and Brennon both took their wedding vows without a hint of drama on our radars. And then during the reunion, the couple sat next to each other on a couch and said that they remain together today. The experiment completely worked for these two, and as the After The Altar episodes showed, they are stronger and happier than ever:

When speaking to People about married life, Brennon shared that being married to Alexa has been “easy” apart from a few small disagreements over things like dealing with dishes. The pair seemingly came from completely different backgrounds, but Alexa shared that they have many commonalities, including their “love of family,” and noted that they’ve learned much together with their different backgrounds. Aww!!! During After The Altar, the couple continued to be super solid, blending their families for a collective dinner and having babies on their mind next!
Colleen And Matt
The final couple lucked out with another mutual “I do” despite the challenges that came up during the experiment. Colleen and Matt got married during the finale episode and as they revealed in the reunion and After The Altar, they remain together! Look how cute they are on Instagram:

Since getting married there has been one caveat for the couple: they don’t currently live together. The pair are adjusting to married life in their own way and are “learning how to incorporate each other into your daily lives” as Matt told People. Despite not sharing the same space, they make time to see each other all the time and Matt shared that they were “as good as we've ever been.”
In After The Altar, Matt and Colleen remained in separate homes, but were actively on the hunt for a home to buy and share together. It seems like the couple still have their hurdles, such as Colleen wanting Matt’s dog neutered and deciding on what side of town to settle down in, but otherwise these two seem solid and happy!
With those results, here’s the tally. Two out of five couples are successfully married right now, and the remaining three... well, they are going to have to find another way to fall in love with their person outside of the Netflix dating series.
