Katie & Travis Clark’s Marriage

In September 2019, Katie revealed that she was in the beginning stages of a courtship with Travis. Then, in March 2020, they officially began courting. In April 2021, the couple went to Key West, Florida, where he surprised her with a proposal.

Then, in December 2021, Travis and Katie tied the knot.

Now, the Bates couple appears to be doing very well. In August, they revealed that their first baby is on the way. Since then, they have shared that it’s a girl and her name is Hailey James. Her due date is March 4.

Was Their Marriage Arranged?

In a new YouTube video, Travis and Katie addressed their fans’ assumptions. They talked about a number of topics, including arranged marriages and birth control.

One fan sent in an assumption about Katie and Travis Clark’s marriage being arranged. They wrote, “You were arranged by someone from either your family or Katie’s family.”

This rumor has circulated online before. Fans often wonder if the Duggars and Bates’ marriages are arranged, partially because they get married so young. Plus, they typically only date or court one person before getting married. So, fans think that these relationships could be set up. But now, Travis and Katie are eager to set the record straight.

In response, the couple laughed at the idea that they had an arranged marriage. Katie shook her head and said, “No, we did not.”

Travis added, “Thankfully, no. Definitely not.”

Then, Katie said, “That would be so awkward, I feel like.”

So, if what the couple said is true, their marriage was actually not arranged.
