Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules of The Bachelor fame have been engaged for six months now. The couple celebrated their first half-year of engaged life on Thursday--even though they were apart.

It was six months ago that The Bachelor got down onto one knee and presented Whitney Bischoff with an exclusive Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.

Whitney shared a memory of his proposal in commemoration of their six months of engaged life via Instagram.

"#tbt can't believe this was almost 6 months ago...," she captioned the following photo.

Chris Soules--who, along with pro partner Witney Carson, was eliminated last week from Dancing With the Stars--is looking forward to spending some time with his fiancee, and building a strong relationship for their future together.

"I'm excited [to be] away from cameras... That'll be nice, and scheduling things around work and not around a show and being able to build our relationship," he said during an interview with Us Weekly.

Chris Soules's last couple of weeks on DWTS were somewhat overshadowed by rumors of a split for him and Whitney Bischoff. Since she was absent for his last couple of performances, some assumed there was trouble in Paradise for the pair. Chris explained after one performance, however, that she was with family, as it was the 10-year anniversary of her mother's death.

Soules is farming right now, but plans to return to Chicago went the season if through. Whitney Bischoff and his sister have become great friends in his absence.

"Right now, we're in the middle of planting season, we should wrap up late May, and once I'm done with that... I'll spend plenty of time in Chicago," he explains. "It's one of my favorite cities anyway. My sister lives out there so plenty of excuses to go to Chicago."

"Laurie, my sister, and Whitney became really close friends. Actually she was just, I was talking to her on the way over here and they were hanging out," he adds. "That'll be fun to really just spend the summer together and hopefully do some traveling."

It sounds like six months of engaged life agrees with both Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules. How long do you suppose it might be before the two set a wedding date?
