If you keep making up and breaking up, is marriage really the answer to your problems?
Don’t freak out quite yet, HollywoodLifers — Miley Cyrus and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth aren’t engaged yet. However, there’s been talk that the two are so happily in love that marriage might be in their imminent future. Keep in mind, though, that the two have had a rocky relationship over the past two years. If you were in their shoes, would getting engaged really be the best idea?
Miley, 18, and Liam, 21, have broken up only to get back together a few times over the past two years, but they are most definitely back on right now. In fact, they’re playing one big happy family with her mom, Tish, and his parents in Australia.
“She sent a private helicopter to pick [Liam’s parents] up from their holiday home on Philip Island, and they sat next to her mom, Tish,” a source close to Miley tells Star magazine. “Miley was nervous because she didn’t want the Hemsworths to think her act was too racy , but they had a ball.”
Another friend claims the pair is already thinking about marriage! “They’re hanging out like one big happy family,” the pal says. “Everyone wonders when Miley and Liam will take the next step and get engaged!”
Not that this is definitely the case — and after the toll her parents’ divorce is taking on her, I’d assume marriage would be the last thing on Miley’s mind — but if it were, is getting engaged the solution?
I’m sure you all know the answer to this one. When something is broken, or runs hot and cold, it isn’t necessarily the right thing. Couples reconnect because they genuinely do love one another (which is different from being in love, mind you) or because they have an unhealthy addiction to one another. Although Miley and Liam do seem to be having a good moment at present, how long will it last?
An engagement ring is not a Bandaid. It’s just going to make your love life a lot more complicated if you and your hot & cold boyfriend do break up again. A diamond might be a girl’s best friend, but do you really want a BFF who might potentially go away at any given moment?
