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

Posted Mon, October 11, 2010 9:18am EST

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?

Not to say her hitting is ok but isnt he just as big of a loser? I only saw the first season but he was a slob, lazy, inconsiderate and thats me being nice. Hell, I got mad a fews times are him. I dont hit and dont think that solves anything but a guy like that would push my buttons for sure. They BOTH need to get some help. She needs to tone that temper of hers down and he needs to grow up.

She is toxic and gary is like a big baby they should have this baby because the are immature and she doesn’t care about this baby like for example farrah this baby is crying and she what is doing going to bed and don’t care if babe is crying or not she don’t fun white this baby i understand her she have a hard life but babe should be more important than her and her problems…

Why are these 2 still together?Torture?Stupidity?It is amazing how fast they got in to counseling and renewing their “commitment” to each other when threatened with an investigation into domestic violence and child neglect. Such a commitment that they both have dumped the other for someone they just met at the local Walmart.Gary even thought he was in love with the girl he met…he just wants to be in love with anybody…I think this new relationship lasted all of 2 dates before he was back with good old Amber who simply uses him…
