Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs cannot quit each other.
This much is evident.
The Southern Charm stars break up and make up more often than the sun rises and sets each weeks. Or so it seems, at least.
But we now have reason to believe the roller coaster relationship may actually have calmed down.
We have reason to believe the back-and-forth nature of this romance may be over.
We have reason to believe that - GASP! - Jacobs and Ravenel are engaged.
Yes, it was just a couple weeks ago that Ravenel was accusing Jacobs of cheating and that the future for these annoying stars seemed murkier than ever.
Follow along below, however, and you'll see why at least some observers believe the pair has now decided to get married...
On Sunday, Jacobs and Ravenel were tagged in a photo (above) that appeared to suggest a significant development in their relationship.
“Great to be with this couple on their special day! Congrats and best wishes!” wrote a friend named Jason Jolly, who shared this image...
... and then later deleted the snapshot amidst chatter that he had broken Ashley and Thomas' engagement news without their permission.
Granted, the words special day are really all we have to go on here -- but you tell us: to what could this pal be referencing via this caption if not an engagement?
Adding fuel to the engagement fire? This picture of Jacobs?
Ashley also posted it over the weekend, after Jason posted his image, and it simply includes the word happy.
That would be the emotion one would expect Jacobs to express after an accepted proposal, right?
Again, this is all speculation at the moment.
The Bravo personalities, whose relationship was front and center throughout Southern Charm Season 5, seemingly split for good in mid-August.
At that time, Jacobs explained in a tear-filled Instagram video that “I love Thomas and I’ll always love Thomas. I’ll always care about him."
"I’m still trying to work it out. Not work out getting back together, but I’m still trying to figure it out...
"I think everyone’s been through breakups before. But it’s hard."
Sure, absolutely. We get that.
You'd think it might be made easier by the fact that Ravenel has been accused of rape by two women, however, and that he comes across like an abhorrent human being.
In response to these charges and to the negative coverage that has been following him around, Ravenel quit Southern Charm this summer, explaining his decision thusly:
I’m not doing the show anymore.
In the contract they have the right to fictionalize your story. They took advantage of me.
I decided I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.
The guy sucks so very much.
