Becca and Garrett’s relationship explored
Becca and Garrett met on The Bachelorette Season 14, where the former served as the lead. The two got engaged after Becca gave her final rose to Garrett.
After the show concluded, the pair even moved into an apartment in San Diego, California.
Discussing her relationship, Becca had told PEOPLE at the time: “It’s been a change! Because I’ve never lived anywhere other than Minnesota and I’ve never lived with a partner before.”
But, a few months later, Becca hinted at hiccups in her relationship with Garrett.
During an episode of Bachelor Happy Hour, she revealed: “I want to say to our listeners out there—because I’m sure many will hear this back and wonder and ask and have opinions—for those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is I don’t know.”

Why did the couple split?
Months after calling quits on their relationship, Becca told in an interview with Insider that she and Garrett had split owing to their differences. She revealed Garrett was a supporter of Blue Lives Matter, while she supported the Black Lives Matter movement.
But, Becca clarified that she didn’t break up with Garrett over his Blue Lives Matter social media post. The couple reportedly parted ways after having a conversation about their future.
She said she thought through several questions, including: “Are we going to be able to make a lasting relationship for a lifetime off of our differences?”
Meanwhile, Garrett refused to answer any questions about his breakup with Becca. During a Q and A session with his Instagram followers, he said: “So out of respect to her and her family, I’m only going to answer this question ever as – ‘it just didn’t work out’.”
