Tragedy: ‘Bachelor in Paradise”s Michelle Money and Cody Sattler Have Broken Up

It is with great sadness that I relay the following devastating piece of information: Bachelor in Paradise‘s Michelle Money and Cody “Code Code” Sattler—whose unlikely yet strangely perfect love blossomed on the beaches of Tulum this year—have broken up.

The pair, who perhaps bonded over their mutual romantic desperation, announced their break-up over apparently coordinated Instagram posts yesterday. Here’s Cody’s—be sure not to miss the moving photo caption (no really, our hearts broke a little):

First off I just want to say that I have experienced some of the best days of my life these past 6 months! I was blessed to have met and date an amazing woman and her daughter, who have made me a better person in all areas of my life. Unfortunately Michelle and I have decided it was in the best interest for both of us to move on from our relationship. Michelle and Brielle will always hold a special spot in my heart and I wish all the best for them. Michelle is someone I shared a relationship with but also someone I will always respect and consider a life long friend. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to go on "Bachelor in Paradise" and to experience such amazing things with a beautiful woman. Those feeling and memories are something I will always cherish! I personally want to say "THANK YOU" from the bottom of my heart to all the amazing fans who showed so much love and support for Michelle and I. You will never truly understand how much that meant to me! I look forward to what the future holds and will continue to always listen and follow my heart! Much LOVE & RESPECT Cody Code xoxo

And here’s an excerpt from Michelle Money’s post, which featured the same image as Cody’s:

I am so grateful I followed my heart and that it lead me to Cody. He has made me feel so loved and so appreciated. I only wish that it could have ended up the way we had hoped. I wish nothing but happiness and love for Cody! Brielle and I look forward to a life long friendship with him and will always love and support him in all he does. Thanks to everyone, again, for all the love and support!

I have so many follow-up questions. Will Cody stay in Utah now, after moving to be there with Michelle? Will the newly-single Michelle make a surprise appearance on the upcoming season the The Bachelor, perhaps pulling a Chris Bukowski and crashing the first night’s cocktail party?

Only time will tell, so for now let’s look back at some magical moments from the pair’s six-month romance.

That time they looked surprised while eating cake:

That time Cody trusted Michelle Money to inject him with stuff:

The time they watched sports:

The time they both wore sunglasses at the same time:

And, obviously, that time Cody did stuff with his muscles:
