Back in August, Alaskan Bush People star Noah Brown married Rhain Alisha in a beautiful, low-key ceremony.
Now it’s another member of the Brown family’s turn.
This time, it’s Gabe Brown — who filed for a marriage license before anyone heard a word about an engagement!
RadarOnline reports that Gabe Brown is either married already — or about to be.
A clerk at the Marriage License Office in Okanogan, Washington says that Gabe and his girlfriend got their marriage papers last month.
“Gabriel Brown and Raquell Pantilla filed for a marriage license in person on October 8,” the clerk confirms.
Raquell is not unfamiliar to fans who follow the Brown family on social media.
In fact, it was Gabe’s youngest sister Rain who revealed Gabe’s relationship with Raquell “Rose” Pantilla.
Rain has joked about beinga third wheel, but she and Raquell have described each other as the best of friends.
A source close to the Brown family didn’t quite confirm Gabe’s marriage, but didn’t exactly deny it, either.
“They have been spending a lot of time together,” the family source acknowledged.
The insider affirmed that “really likes her.”
We’ve all been able to tell that much just from watching them on social media.
Just look at this photo that Gabe shared of his and Raquell’s hands forming a heart together.
Now, as we were all so recently reminded with Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, a marriage license can be a little ambiguous.
We looked it up, and Washington state law says that a marriage license has a three-day waiting period.
(That, folks, is to prevent people who are blitzed out of their minds from having impulsive weddings with someone they just met)
After those three days are over, the couple has 60 days in which to have their wedding.
After that, if they have not held a wedding, the marriage license becomes invalid.
If our understanding that this gives Gabe and Raquell a total of 63 days in which to tie the knot is correct, they must hold their wedding by December 10.
Just because Gabe and Raquell need to hold a wedding between October 11 and December 10 doesn’t mean that it has to be large.
Noah’s wedding, after all, was a pretty small event.
It is entirely possible that Gabe and Raquell have already had a wedding somewhere on the Brown family’s private, spacious homestead.
If your dad buys 435 acres of land, we sure hope that there’s enough room for you to get married on it.
If so, we hope that they’ll make an announcement about it soon.
But they still have an entire month — and some change — to hold that wedding. Maybe it hasn’t happened yet.
Gabe Brown has not always been so lucky in love.
In late November of last year, Rain warned her fans and followers that an imposter was pretending to be Gabe Brown.
This imposter was catfishing fans, some of whom developed real feelings for the fake Gabe.
Months later, when fans learned of Gabe’s relationship with Raquel, some accused Gabe of seducing them — having ignored Rain’s warning.
These fans may have seen Rain’s warning but refused to believe that they were being catfished.
We’re glad that Gabe and Raquell were able to get past that.
Still, Gabe and Raquell have only been dating for … possibly less than a year.
Though Raquell has been getting along well with the Brown family — especially with Rain — some wonder if they’re rushing things.
It’s always a little surprising when a couple goes from “dating” to “married” (or close enough) without any real engagement in between.
But sometimes, couples just know.
Congratulations to Gabe and Raquell!
