Over the past year, former Southern Charm stars Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs have had a chaotic relationship that fans thought ended with a break up early last month. However, a new Instagram post has many wondering if the couple has gotten back together and are planning to tie the knot.
Season 5 of Southern Charm ended just a few short months ago, but since then a lot has happened. At the reunion, Jacobs insisted that she and Ravenel were still together, but a few weeks later she went on Instagram and revealed that they had broken up.

Ravenel also confirmed the split when he tweeted that he was “single and ready to mingle.” He also insinuated that Jacobs had cheated on him by tweeting lyrics from the 1987 Chicago hit If She Would Have Been Faithful. But after she complained to his attorney, Ravenel backtracked and said that Jacobs had never cheated on him.
Jacobs was also seen out and about with a few other men after they announced their split.
But then, cameras spotted the couple all over Charleston, and they appeared to still be very much together. And this past weekend, a man named Jason Jolly tagged both Ravenel and Jacobs on an Instagram post (which he has since deleted), and it featured a pic of the former couple with friends, and the two looked elated with huge grins on their faces.
“Great to be with this couple on their special day! Congrats and best wishes!” wrote Jolly.
These two short sentences automatically had fans asking if Ravenel and Jacobs were engaged. Of course, there are a plethora of reasons that a friend would congratulate another, but why did Jolly mention a “special day?”
As Starcasm points out, it is also possible that Jolly was referring to another couple, and his caption had nothing to do with Ravenel and Jacobs.
Not long after Jolly posted his pic, Jacobs posted her own peaceful and content photo on her Instastory with the simple caption, “Happy.”

Ravenel and Jacobs’ future together remains unclear, but we do know that the former couple will definitely not be on Southern Charm during Season 6, despite rumors that they were both in talks to come back. When a fan on Instagram asked Jacobs about her future with the Bravo reality show, Jacobs wrote that neither she nor Ravenel would be back.
In a second Instagram post, when responding to a fan who asked if she was planning on staying in Charleston despite her breakup and no more Southern Charm, Jacobs wrote, “Yes. Planning on staying here.”
Last year, after dating Thomas Ravenel for just a few weeks, Ashley Jacobs moved to South Carolina from her native California.
New episodes of Southern Charm will return to Bravo in 2019.
