Rachel Lindsay Defends Her Long Distance Marriage To Husband Bryan Abasolo

Rachel Lindsay found love with Bryan Abasolo on season 13 of The Bachelorette back in 2017. Though the pair are now happily married, Lindsay and Abasolo are living on opposite coasts. Lindsay is currently living in Los Angeles, while her husband resides in Miami full time.

“I didn’t move to L.A. because I just love the city,” Lindsay recently said during a chat with Abasolo, according to Us Weekly. “You’re focusing on your practice and building it to a place you want it to be, and I am here in L.A. working for Extra and doing other things, and we’re doing this to eventually bring ourselves together.”

Despite not living in the same place at the moment, Lindsay says she and her husband “have a timeline for ourselves” and that they both "know where we’re going, we know where we’re headed, and we know what we’re trying to build as Abasolos.”

During her time on The Bachelorette, Lindsay often spoke about not wanting to sacrifice family time for her career. She took a moment to clarify that she still feels that way despite her current long distance relationship. “I can see from the outside looking in how it’s like ‘Wow, when Rachel was on the show she talked about not wanting to put her career over her husband.’ But the thing is, I’m not putting my career over my husband. I’m putting my family first,” she explained. “Part of that is putting us in a position to succeed and put our family in the best position.”

Abasolo agreed with his wife, adding: “For me, I want you to go do your thing in L.A., I want you to be as successful as possible. You’re killing it right now, and I love it.”
