On Easter weekend, the newest Bachelor couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell traveled to Denver to spend the holiday with his family.

This past week, the two hung out in Portland, Oregon to spend some time with Lauren's fam, and it looks like it may have been off to an awkward start.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Lauren's younger brother Brett announced that he had a pressing question for his future brother-in-law, right off the bat.

"I asked him the fantasy suite question just to start the brotherhood," he wrote.

Not awkward at all.

On the show, Ben chose to spend the night in the fantasy suite with the three ladies who remained in the competition, which included Lauren, JoJo Fletcher and Caila Quinn.

What happened behind those doors the cameras couldn't reveal, but it's safe to assume they weren't engaged in a rousing game of Parcheesi.

In fairness, Brett was likely just giving Ben the business, because last month he tweeted, "Couldn't be happier to have @benhiggi as my new older brother."

Earlier this month, reports claimed that Ben and Lauren were experiencing "extreme tension" in their relationship, namely because she was distraught after seeing her fiance tell JoJo he loved her on the show.

“Lauren tries not to think about it,” a source told Life & Style. “But she’s traumatized that Ben told another girl he loved her.”

If that's true, they're not letting the discord show in their Instagram posts. But then again, who does?
