Thank you, ABC, for a combined 43 seasons of breakups, makeups and hookups courtesy of The Bachelor franchise. While the show typically ends with an engagement, it sometimes results in heartbreak—like with former Bachelorette Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes, who recently called off their impending nuptials.

Given the breakup news, we decided to revisit the franchise, taking a look back at all of the Bachelor Nation relationships and ranking them based on how long they lasted—with a few noteworthy exceptions.
