Teen Mom stars Maci and Kyle and Catelynn and Tyler are all planning on marrying — but are they too young to wed? Should they wait?
Do teenage romances ever last? I’d like to say yes, but I’ve got some serious doubts.
Take Teen Mom stars Maci Bookout, Kyle King, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra as an example. Both couples are planning on tying the knot — but they’re far too young to do so!
Maci and Catelynn want to provide father figures for their children, which is commendable, but don’t they want to take the time to find someone who’s really right for them? Although I have no kids of my own, in my experience it’s best to fully know yourself before you can share your life with someone else and to be at peace with who you are. These girls need to dedicate and devote their time to their children — and should hold off on getting married until they’re older.
Perhaps it’s naive of me to say, but we have such a cavalier attitude towards marriage these days. It’s not “I do” forever — it’s “I do promise to try for now.” If you’re ready to make a genuine commitment and ready to work at making it last, then I say go for it — but you should never plan on marrying if you’re not 100% sure it’s going to last.
Starry-eyed, naive and innocent? Sure am. But for me, the prospect of rushing into something I would have only regretted later is far worse than being a hopeless romantic.
