Bumpy road. Love Is Blind couple Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey weathered many ups and downs after leaving the pods engaged, but are they still together? Keep reading for season 3 finale details about whether they get married or split.

Are Love Is Blind’s Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey Still Together?

Cole, 27, and Zanab, 32, are not together post-season. During their wedding day, the flight attendant turned down her groom and opened up about how he made her feel over the weeks together. 

“You have disrespected me, you have insulted me, you have critiqued me, and for what it’s worth, you have single-handedly shattered my self-confidence,” Zanab told Cole in front of their wedding guests. “And the messed up thing is I know I love you … but love shouldn’t feel this way. I can’t marry you.”

The pair no longer follows each other on Instagram.

Do Love Is Blind’s Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey Split?

The pair have since gone their separate ways, with Zanab telling People that she and Cole “do not speak” post-show.

Cole and Zanab’s relationship hit rough waters shortly after their engagement. Their first fight happened after they attended a pool party with the rest of the engaged couples: Colleen Reed and Matt Bolton, Brennon Lemieux and Alexa Alfia, SK Alagbada and Raven Ross and Nancy Rodriguez and Bartise Bowden. 

During a conversation with Colleen, 26, who he previously had a relationship with in the pods, Cole said Zanab was not “physically” his “type” and that he was very attracted to the ballerina. Colleen reciprocated his feelings, confessing that she would have approached him in a bar in the real world. 

Cole admitted to Women’s Health that he “crossed a line” with his “stupid” statements about his fiancée. Zanab called the poolside situation with Colleen “a foot-in-mouth moment.”

While the Netflix duo seemed to brush off that incident, their personality types continued to clash. After Zanab got angry over Cole’s immature behavior, he asked his fiancée if she was “bipolar,” later explaining he felt like he was “getting two different versions of Zanab” during a private interview.

“I want a wife to laugh with me and lift me up,” Cole said, asking to see her “sweet” side. “I would expect my wife to like me a little bit more I guess.” 

Zanab fired back, “I am the catch of the century,” before suggesting that he find a “sweet” girl at his bachelor party.

“I don’t love that for me. I don’t love that for any woman that’s ever questioned,” Zanab told Women’s Health about the incident. “It’s that really awful statement like ‘Are you crazy or something?’ Like just men having that blanket statement when a woman acts irrationally. I don’t like it. I didn’t like it in the moment.”

She noted that she “hated” the situation, but she and Cole decided to stay together in the moment after his comments. “I was putting him in the hot seat for something he had said and he had done, and he didn’t like it, and so it was deflection, it was projection,” she continued. “I hated to see it play out again.”

For his part, Cole said he “massively” has “regret” over his comments to Zanab, telling Women’s Health that he asked if she was bipolar because she had previously used the term and she “kept giving him mixed signals.”

“I don’t think you should question anyone’s mental health or ever ask that question. It sounds really bad. When I heard it, it broke my heart to see that play out and to see her face afterwards,” the realtor said. “But I didn’t just out of the blue like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go and ask a very difficult question or just like a question that shouldn’t be asked.’”

Did Love Is Blind’s Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey Get Married?

Cole and Zanab made it to their wedding day during season 3, but they did not get married. During the reunion, Zanab said she didn’t “hate” Cole and had “completely forgiven” him.

What Is Love Is Blind’s Cole Barnett and Zanab’s Relationship Like Post Show?

Cole and Zanab don’t have any form of a relationship after filming the reunion special. Although fans nitpicked the house-flipper’s behavior as they watched their failed romance play out on the show, Zanab quickly sat in the hot seat after Cutiegate.

During the reunion episode, the Texas native claimed Cole alluded to her eating too much when she was snacking on a cutie. However, the scene played out during the credits, revealing that Zanab was a bit dramatic with the story. What she failed to mention was they were getting ready to go to a dinner reservation at a steakhouse and Cole didn’t want her to ruin her appetite. 

Cole revealed he has been to therapy after the show and shared the news during a Q&A via Instagram Stories in November 2022.

“The best thing I’ve gotten from therapy so far is honestly just how helpful it is to talk about the things that have impacted you or hurt you or were traumatizing. It’s not that there’s some grand thing that you need to learn, necessarily, there’s a lot of things you can learn,” he shared. “But sometimes as a guy you just don’t ever talk about emotions and feelings, you never do, so just sitting with someone and talking about those things in and of itself is freeing and liberating.”

As things seemed like they couldn’t get any worse for the former couple, Zanab revealed she met with Cole’s ex-wife in a November 22, 2022, TikTok video.

“You’re in my comments/mentions/DM about him. I’m having coffee with his ex-wife,” the text read over a video of her dancing in the car.
