The concept of Netflix’s new dating shows The Ultimatum is totally insane. The couples participating have at least one member in the relationship who has issued an ultimatum: get married or GTFO, and they’re on this show to basically date around and figure out whether the person they came with is the person they are meant to depart with. If that seems like a relationship therapist’s worst nightmare…you’re probably correct.
One of the couples on the show, Nate Ruggles and Lauren Kilos, didn’t even get to the “dating around” stage. Before they could even choose a new individual to hook up with for their test-run marriage, Nate proposed to Lauren. Reminder: one of the reasons they weren’t addressing their wedding issue is because they had different perspectives on having kids, which, is valid!
Lauren Pounds and Nate Ruggles Departed ‘The Ultimatum’ Early
Lauren Pounds and Nate Ruggles, who had been dating for two years before appearing on Netflix’s The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On, were cast in the show when they decided to put their relationship to the ultimate test. There was a fork in the road since he wanted to settle down and start a family while she didn’t.
She seemed to feel comfortable sharing her aversion to starting a family with Colby Kissinger rather early. Lauren revealed that she had feared Nate’s work commitments would preclude him from sharing parental duties with her.
Nate said he didn’t trust the Texas native’s motives when Colby picked Lauren to be his trial spouse for the next three weeks. So, he cut in with a proposition that caught almost everyone off guard. Many people were perplexed by the shift, especially since the couple had previously discussed their divergent views on starting a family.
Plus, he intended to select other ladies for the trial weddings. Nate emphasized, though, that he was set on marrying Lauren and didn’t want to start a family with anybody but her. His hasty idea was accepted, and the two of them exited the experiment. They defended their union in front of their friends and family, saying they’ve been to couples therapy and agreed to share parenting duties.
Six months after the show’s debut, Lauren and Nate tied the knot.
Lauren and Nate tied the knot in a small Colorado wedding six months after the series aired.
She had only recently posted a lengthy Instagram explanation of why she and her partner had abruptly quit the show, citing “toxic” working conditions as the reason, and their belief that they had been “punished” by viewers for doing so. Lauren insisted they were content with their decision nevertheless.
Six weeks after they left, she continued, Nate proposed to her in an Austin park. “He understood as well as I did that our TV engagement was NOT charming and required a do-over,” she said candidly.
In Colorado, at the “ideal venue,” they exchanged vows in front of about a hundred guests. Further, Lauren said she never stated she didn’t want children but wasn’t sure. A member of the cast of The Ultimatum revealed that the couple had made concessions and decided to have a single kid.
It was said that Nate told a ‘powerful’ anecdote that was cut from the show. The 30-year-old actress took to Instagram after the series finale and reunion to field questions from her devoted following.
Lauren said that there were “many things” she wanted the audience to see but didn’t include because of time constraints, when asked about a moment she wanted to share but didn’t include it since it didn’t make the final edit.
She thought back on a few “beautiful moments” she and Nate shared, as well as his outing with Shanique Brown.
She claimed that during the conversation he told an “emotional” and “strong” account of his sister’s death that had the producers in tears. There’s a new movie on Netflix called The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On.
