'Teen Mom' Amber & Fiancé Gary Are Renewing Their Love With Promise Rings — A Bad Idea For The Toxic Couple?

Should we start placing bets on how quickly these two will be back to their fighting ways?

So much for the “other guy” we saw Amber Portwood dating on the Oct. 5 episode of Teen Mom! is reporting that Amber and her on-and-off fiancé Gary Shirley are renewing their commitment to one another, and they even bought rings to symbolize their love. “They just bought each other new rings as a sign of their commitment,” Gary’s mom, Carol Zizak, tells the site. … They’re promising to themselves that they’re going to work on their relationship, not date anyone else, and have a future for [their daughter] Leah.”

Carol describes Amber’s ring as “very pretty, dainty and delicate — just like her.” Um… what? Are we talking about the same Amber?

Apparently Gary’s mom is 100 percent behind her future daughter-in-law:

“Amber is a very sweet girl and she’s had a tough childhood,” Carol says. “But she is genuine. … I always tell her nothing you do will stop me from loving you. Too many parents do that and say you have to earn their love and go through hoops.”

It sounds like Carol is looking on the bright side, totally ignoring the abuse her son suffered while living with his baby mama — including physical attacks and verbal degradation. I guess they’re willing to forgive and forget… but should they?
