Personal life[]

She met Dotun Olubeko on her season of The Bachelorette and ultimately accepted his proposal.

"Charity, there is so much we've experienced. From our first kiss at the mansion all the way to conquering our fears 200 feet in the air, running through New Orleans, and most importantly, falling in love. You have been able to make me feel so incredibly special. You've made me feel adored and validated and wanted. And to receive that from a woman of your caliber, I don’t think you'll ever understand what that means to me, but I'm certain that I want to spend the rest of my life showing you. 100 percent. I want you to know that I'm fully committed to you as you stand here in front of me. I wouldn't change a thing about you." - Dotun to Charity

"I've always said that being here and being on this journey has taught me that one conversation can change everything. When I think of that moment and when I think of you, it takes me back to Oceanside when we shared that incredibly special moment that changed my life, truly, forever. When I looked into your eyes in that moment, I saw a man that respected me, that valued me, that adored me, and a man that I could love forever. You have made me feel alive, you’ve made me believe in love again. You've made me feel so valued and so seen. So, Dotun, when I stand here in this moment, I want a forever future with you. I see you as my husband, I see you as my future. I see it so clear. I don't have any doubts. I don't question it. I love you so much." - Charity to Dotun

"Charity, you've inspired me, you've shown me that a good thing can really just be a good thing. The love that we have is perfect. And so, would you do me the honor of turning this fairytale into a reality? Miss Charity Lawson, will you marry me?" - Dotun proposing to Charity
