Although the pair has reached many milestones in their relationship, such as engaging and meeting parents, they have not yet crossed a major element of the metaphorical list of tasks: to do the act, for lack of better words. .
As Ben revealed in an interview with Nick Viall for Viall files, the former Bachelor shared that he and his girlfriend over a year old were waiting to have sex until they went down the aisle and said “yes.”
The subject of his sex life came up when he and Nick discussed his current life situation, since Ben stays with his family during his forties. One thing led to another and Nick and his producer asked him if he and Jess were “fornicating” or if they were expecting after their marriage.
To which he replied: “Yes, we are. “
He also added that he “certainly” had not had sex this “week and not in the past year and a half”.

Unfortunately, he shared his concern that the coronavirus of all of this could hurt the idyllic commitment they hoped to have. Ben said he was concerned he might not “feel as celebrated as I know people feel for her” because they got engaged in the midst of the pandemic.
The only silver lining in this situation is that they are closer than ever. From the moment they started dating, they did things “from a distance”, as Ben said, but now that they’ve been together for the past few weeks, he said, “I can watch it with confidence in your eyes and say “Hey, we’ve been stuck in the house together for two weeks and I’m having fun. “”
