Did Alex FINALLY Propose To Caroline?

Alex and Caroline have been one of the most controversial couples of You, Me, and My Ex. Mainly because viewers have doubted the legitimacy of their relationship. This doubt has spilled over onto friends and family of Alex’s. The main reason is his sole partner prior to Caroline was his boyfriend, Stephen. He is still very much in touch with his ex, almost ad nauseam. Alex broached the topic of proposing to Caroline early in the season and was met with many questions. His family had yet to meet her and his sister, Tiffany doubted if this was the real thing. So, has Alex finally taken the leap and put a ring on it?

When the duo was introduced, it was an interesting situation, to say the least. All of the couples featured had complicated backstories. Yet, Alex was accused of faking his storyline for the camera. Prior to dating Caroline, he had been in a long-term relationship with Stephen. She was actually his boss so they would go out and have fun. Then, his relationship ended and Alex took the friendship to the next level, much to Caroline’s surprise.

It was odd to many who knew him. However, the two fell in love and did not feel the need to justify their love to anyone. Stephen remained a huge part of Alex’s life which did not always sit well with his new partner. Eventually, enough time had gone by and Alex realized he wanted to spend forever with Caroline. Accompanied by his sister Tiffany, the two went ring shopping. She found it odd he was with a woman. Tiffany alluded she could only see him with a woman if it was an older sugar mama.

Alex realized he had to introduce his family to Caroline no matter what they said. They embraced her but wanted him to define his sexuality. He said he was demisexual, which they did not understand. They also could not grasp his closeness with Stephen. It did not matter what anyone thought as Alex was determined to show Caroline and the world how devoted he was to her. On social media, he has posted proclamations of love to her. He has made it clear she is his forever. So, what’s next for the couple?
