Amber’s dad says he hopes the couple reconciles, and eventually gets married — but is this a good idea?

When we last saw Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, she was physically assaulting boyfriend Gary Shirley on the Oct. 4 episode — but now Amber’s dad, Shawn, tells RadarOnline.com the pair is “doing just fine,” and has started going to couples counseling. “I think one day they will [get married],” he says. “It looks like they’re sure trying to work it out.”

The Anderson, Indiana, Police Department has since launched a domestic violence investigation to see if Amber is a serious threat to Gary — The Department of Child Protective Services is also involved — but Shawn doesn’t predict it will lead to any major consequences:

“Leah is well taken care of, and they’re doing something about it and that’s the thing,” he says. “And the investigation… of course they have to check into it. It’s they’re job.”

In fact, Shawn lashes out at MTV for showing Amber and Gary’s fight in the first place!

“I don’t even think it should’ve been shown on TV, to be honest with you,” he tells the site. “I think that MTV should’ve used better judgment, that’s all I’ve got to say.”

What do YOU think? Should Amber and Gary work things out? Did MTV do the right thing in showing the fight between Amber and Gary? Personally, I’m glad they did, as it finally exposed Amber for the angry, abusive mother she is. Vote and comment below:

lol this cracks me up! because surely, following that logic mtv shouldnt be broadcasting a teen mom show either.

mtv showed great judgement airing this. it brought attention to a taboo subject.
