Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici Season 17 Bachelor alumni are happier than ever, if you believe their post-honeymoon Twitter updates. Lowe has admitted, in retrospect, there were times on the show when the whole premise felt morally wrong.

It hasn't always been easy for Sean Lowe to be on the Bachelor, because the whole concept of dating so many different women at the same time just seemed morally and spiritually obtuse for the born again virgin.
Lowe admitted in a recent interview, reports Reality TV, that something changed for him spiritually a few years ago, and he just wasn't able to ignore the idea that premarital sex was not what Jesus would have been in to condoning:
"After graduating college, I moved back to Dallas, I'm dating other girls, and I started having sex. And I would feel extremely guilty afterwards.
"I just reached a point where I thought, 'I know Jesus is in my heart and I know how I'm supposed to live, but for the past five or six years, I've just decided to ignore it, and something's got to change.
"Alright, Jesus, let's do this again. I don't know who I would be without Jesus in my heart."
So when Sean was first approached by producer for the Bachelorette reality show, Lowe told them he would rather not (via I Am Second):
"Guys go on there, get drunk, and there's the fantasy suite and there's sex and nudity. It just didn't seem like something that represented me."
But Lowe decided to lighten up and give it a try.
Once there, however, things felt a little different than he thought they would; especially during his own season of the Bachelor (via I Am Second):
"It's unnatural to date 25 women at one time and it felt wrong a lot of the time. I wrestled with it quite a bit thinking, 'I'm pretty sure god opened this door but what if he didn't? ... What if people look at me and they say, 'This is what is wrong with Christianity?' That was a big fear."
New wife Catherine Giudici Lowe sure is happy that Sean decided to stick it out.
She recently posted a pic on Twitter where she is tucked right under Sean are with a heart-warming caption:
"My happy place."
Well...If they're happy, than we're happy.
