Byron Velvick, Mary Delgado

Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado are one of the more successful couples to appear on The Bachelor. That's not saying a lot, however.

The pair, who got engaged after she won the final rose in 2004, are going strong in spite of a Thanksgiving fight â€" Mary wanted to stay out later, Byron was ready to call it a night â€" that resulted in Delgado being arrested.
