However, Bartise was quick to tell Nancy how attractive he found Raven when the Love Is Blind season 3 cast eventually met up.  And the relationship appeared rocky from then on. Nevertheless, the final decision at the alter had most viewers shocked. While Nancy said ‘I do’, Bartise did not. This resulting in Nancy’s family jumping to her defence, and left the pair in a complicated situation.
