Every Friday we thumb through your comments from the most-talked-about post of the week and highlight each side of the argument. Check out the latest That’s What You Said below and make sure to share your own opinion!
It seems like yesterday that “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans and her boyfriend Kieffer were arguing about, well, everything, but that relationship is long gone. After Season 2, the young mother started dating Gary Head, and the couple made a permanent commitment to each other this week–they got engaged! Following the news, we asked fans if they were happy for Jenelle or if they thought she and her man were moving too quickly (she said she was done with Head just a month ago). Here’s a sample of how people reacted on Remote Control and Facebook.
“Congrats, Jenelle! Hope everything works out for you and your son! Just remember that it is easy for all these people to judge you, they are going off of a TV show. I know that it is hard and some day you will pull it all together and be very happy.” — devcoopandme
“I hope you realize, Jenelle, that this means you have to literally and emotionally grow up! Marriage is to be taken seriously, it’s not a game. I would have liked to see you get custody of your own son back, then take care of him, then date so on and so forth. I really hope you’re ready for this and not jumping the gun on it.” — Candace
“Jenelle IS growing up, you guys. And getting married might actually be healthy for her son, he NEEDS a steady father figure, and he needs a close family. Think about it, with Jenelle getting married she’s bound to go out a LOT less and make less mistakes taking care of a husband, child, home and work. Her getting married is a GOOD thing.” — Nikki
“Seriously, I think Jenelle should stop worrying about men/boys in her life and worry about getting a good stable job, building a better relationship with her mom, spending EVERY bit of extra time she has with Jace, and that is it.” — Shannon
“At least it looks like this boyfriend has a job that can afford a ring at least, or has parents that help him out!! I don’t like her choices in life, but I’ve made a few mistakes too and I learned from mine, granted it was a lot faster than she did, but she still has a lot of growing up to do.” — Erica
“I feel bad for Janelle, in all honesty. Yeah, she’s hit a few major road bumps, but I think she really does care for Jace. If I had a mom like her mom who was always screaming at me, yeah, I’d be a wreck, too. I hope having a mate will help stable out her life some” — Veronica
+ Everyone seems to feel differently about the engagement, but what do you think? Should Jenelle be more focused on herself and Jace than getting hitched, or is the security of marriage the exact thing she needs to restore order in her life? Let’s keep the convo going!
