The season finale of “16 and Pregnant” was one of the more heart-wrenching episodes we’ve seen–shortly after Kristina found out she was expecting, her baby’s father died in a sudden drowning. Coping with the loss of her fiancé, Todd, was a major battle; he was her everything, and their son Lukas would never even know him. Surprisingly, though, during our follow-up interview with the teen mom, Kristina revealed that she was engaged again. Many people close to Todd weren’t on board with it, but we asked fans how they felt about the news–here’s a sample of what was posted on Remote Control and Facebook:
“I cried the whole time I watched this girl’s episode. It reminded me of Farrah with the whole loss of the father thing. I think it is a little soon to be engaged to another guy but at the same time, if she was lucky enough to find someone who makes her happy again and she feels she needs to hold onto him before he goes away too, then all the power to her.” — Jordan
“If TJ is who makes her happy then good for her. No one can judge her because they aren’t in her situation. I do feel that it is a little too soon for her to be engaged to someone else though. Her son is not even a year old yet. But that is her decision to make, no one else’s.” — Kimberly
“In my opinion, she is not disrespecting anyone. She lost the love of her life and the father of her son, she was grieving as the family was, and yes, it’s hard to see her move on with another man, but what was she supposed to do, drop on the floor and play dead herself the rest of her life? It won’t bring him back so why should she have to stop living because he has?” — Karen
“I felt so bad for her, and I can relate to how she felt, I got married at 19 and was a widow by 23 we had just celebrated our 3 year anniversary and 2 days later I found him dead. I went back home and was miserable like her, and not even a year later I had my now-husband of 7 months come into my life.” — Kassie
“Nobody can explain love and it’s not their place to judge her for opening up her heart again. Dwelling on her loss won’t bring Todd back. I’m proud of her for having the strength to deal with the loss, take care of her baby, and be brave enough to move on with her life.” — Lydia
“I think she’s way too young to get married! It’s good to move on in life, but after having a baby, marriage shouldn’t be an important factor. She needs to worry about making a life for both her, and the baby. I think she’s going to find she is biting off way more than she can chew.” — Jennifer
+ Some readers think it’s too soon for Kristina to be engaged again, while others completely support her ability to find love. Did you get to say what you wanted? Let’s keep the convo going!
