While Higgins seemed torn over his strong feelings for two women on the ABC reality show, he ultimately came to choose his future wife. "I was in love with two women, but I knew I couldn't say goodbye to the woman that I was with in the end," Higgins shared, adding that he explained the situation "right away" with his fiancee. "I needed to share with her my feelings were confusing at times, but I never doubted our relationship."
He added, "It took me thinking about who I couldn't say goodbye to for the rest of my life to really make that decision, and it was her."
As for how he explained being in love with two women to his future bride, Higgins said that's something he addressed "right away."
"We're a team now, and teams communicate, they have to, even in situations that are tough and difficult," he explained. "I had to communicate with her, and she's been supportive and loving and caring. Understanding it’s not always easy, right? We've put her through hell and back sometimes, but she's never ceased to love me and support me through it. That's why we're standing here today, and I am so excited."
"I would get married tomorrow if that was the right and wise decision for us to make as a couple," he explained. "I don't think it is. Like I said, I want to show her off. I want to date her well. I want to love on her in public. I want people to see our relationship and see how well it's going."
That being said, Higgins added that marriage is very much part of their plans. "I don't want to push off a wedding. I don't think she does," he said. "My life is committed to one person and I'm excited about that commitment."
Next Monday, Higgins will confront the eliminated contestants on ABC's The Bachelor: Women Tell All.
