BachelorThe news that 'The Bachelor' couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have split up raises an interesting question: Should we even care what happens at the final rose ceremony?

'The Bachelor' has run for 14 seasons, and can you guess how many of those have ended in marriage? It's really hard to keep track because there have been so many break-ups, make-ups and bachelors ending up with other people not on the show. But according to Wikipedia, not one of those seasons have resulted in a marriage between the show's leading man and the lucky final lady at the rose ceremony. Season 13's bachelor Jason Mesnick split with his winner, Melissa Rycroft, but ended up marrying his runner-up, Molly Malaney.

Its female counterpart, 'The Bachelorette,' has fared only slightly better -- out of five seasons, one has resulted in marriage. Season one's Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter were married in December 2003 and have two children. Season five's Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are currently engaged and living together in Chicago.

So, let's get back to our original question. Should we care about the final rose ceremony?
