“I’d hate me too.”
The couple had a good relationship but had kept their relationship low-key. But Molly came forward with the message on 14 July 2018 that says:
“You could’ve been anywhere in the world, but you’re here with me. I appreciate that,”
Along with the beautiful message, she shared pictures from the Turks and Caicos Island which hinted that the couple has already taken their relationship to next level.
Well, not just the adorable picture, a shiny stone was also reflected on her ring finger which surely gave a thought about their marriage before the couple came forth with the happiest news. With the shiny ring on her hand, the couple was speculated to have got engaged, but the news was more than just the engagement news.

And soon after the wedding, the partners departed for a romantic honeymoon in Turks and Caicos. And the glimpse of their honeymoon was already shared before the couple announced their wedding on 14 July 2018.
With their exotic married life, Molly had also disclosed about their busy schedule with their perfect going relationship. She talked with Uproxx in June 2017 about their balanced personal and professional life.
"I think balance is everything we’re all trying to figure out, right? Regardless of what phase of life we’re in, regardless of your career and of your relationship. That’s just something that I’m still continuing to learn and still continuing to juggle. Obviously, my career is demanding, but I love what I do at the same time. It’s just kind of prioritizing and working your schedule so you can make everything happen.”
Well, Molly, who had also battled with the endometriosis, is happily living with her co-worker turned husband. And it is very rare to see the celebrity couple having a low-key wedding but in the case of Molly and Jalen, they tied the nuptials in a very secret wedding ceremony with the simple arrangements.
So their simple wedding might have encouraged their followers to be low-profile with lots of memories.
