Byron Velvick & Mary Delgado: So Happy Together

by at . Comments

Former star of The Bachelor Byron Velvick has gotten past a violent, late-2007 fight that resulted in a jailed, strung-out Mary Delgado mug shot.

"We're going day by day, on our own time," the pro fisherman, 43, says of life with his fiancée in the newest issue of Us Weekly.

Aren't they sweet? Matt Grant, this kind of happiness is what you're up against in your search for love on The Bachelor this spring ...

These lovely photos show The Bachelor couple in a state of marital bliss. Or at least bliss. No couple from 11 seasons of the show has actually gotten married. None.

The couple, who got engaged after she won the final rose on TV back in 2004, are going strong these days despite a pre-Thanksgiving fight â€" Mary wanted to stay out later, Byron was ready to call it a night â€" that resulted in Delgado being arrested and charged with assault. Naturally. Charges were later dropped.

"You weather through stuff, work harder," Velvick says, "and you come to a better understanding if the love is real.

Adds Mary Delgado: "He's awesome."

Just don't cross her again.
