Angie told The Daily Telegraph on Friday: "To me it has always just been a piece of paper... but there was this feeling I did get, this sense of relief."
And thankfully for the couple, Carlin's divorced status means they can comfortably pursue their relationship together.
"We definitely want to pursue a future together, but talking about marriage is pretty early," Carlin told the publication.
Also confirming: "I am divorced. It was pretty straightforward because we didn't have any property or kids together so we just filled out all the forms online."
Viewers watched The Bachelorette finale on Thursday as Angie said goodbye to Timm Hanly and told Carlin that he was the perfect guy for her.
"I don't want the perfect guy just for everyone. I want the perfect guy for me. Because I truly have put my whole heart and soul into this."
Angie continued: "There's no doubt in my mind now that I feel like you are the perfect guy for me. And I am completely falling in love with you."
Carlin then presented Angie with a "commitment ring".
And while Angie seemed thrilled with his gesture, fans on Twitter slammed Carlin for his choice of jewellery.
"To help us remember this experience, I’m going to give you the ugliest ring known to mankind..." one angry fan wrote on Twitter, while another exclaimed, "Even Carlin's ring is boring! Come on dude wtf."
