Just two days after the final episode of “The Bachelor,” the couple announced on Instagram they would be parting ways.

In the final episode, fans remember Peter Weber going against his mother’s disapproval and chose Madison Prewett.
Well, as it turns out: maybe mothers do know best.
Weber broke the news on Instagram on Thursday that they will no longer be pursuing their relationship.
“Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further,” Weber wrote. “Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us.”
Prewett also took to Instagram to break the news, posting that she’s “thankful for this amazing journey” and that she’s “grown so much” from the process.
“As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things,” she wrote. “I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did.”
In the dramatic finale, Weber chose The Bachelor runner-up Prewett even after he proposed to the finalist Hannah Ann Sluss.
“I want so badly to be able to give you everything, give you my entire heart, because that’s what you do to me and that’s everything you deserve, and I can’t do that,” Weber told Sluss as he ended their one-month engagement. “I’m so sorry.”
Which… is awkward. But that’s what keeps the show interesting, we supposed.
After dumping Sluss, Weber returned to Prewett who previously left the show because of conflicts on religious beliefs between the two of them.
Weber’s mom kept insisting she strongly disapproved of the relationship, telling the worldwide audience it wasn’t going to work out.
And, it turns out she was right.
