Let me say upfront that I have no idea why anyone would want to be married at 19 — so many boys in the world to be kissed, then immediately gotten sick of! — but still, Miley Cyrus is going to strut down the aisle to Liam Hemsworth. She’s getting a lot of heat for getting engaged so young, but the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that she might actually be ready to wed…
1. They’ve Dated a Long Time
MC and LH have been coupled up for three years — albeit, on and off — which is way longer than any of my friends waited before getting engaged. In a way, they’ve grown up together and are super bonded.
2. Her Parents Are Still Married
Billy Ray married Tish in 1993, so that means they’ve been married for, like, 10,000 years or whatever. True, they almost split in 2010, but worked through it. Kids who come from divorced families are more likely to divorce themselves, so it’s good that Miley has a positive example of what a lifelong commitment means!
3. Liam Isn’t the Only Dude She’s Dated
If Liam, delicious though he may be, was the only guy who Miley had fallen for, I’d advise her to pump the breaks and date around. But she’s had some pretty serious relationships under her belt — Nick Jonas (OMG, remember that??) and Justin Gaston — so maybe she’s super solid on what she’s looking for?
4. She Has a Life of Her Own
Soooo many of my friends from college got wifed up right out of college because, quite honestly, they had nothing better to do. But Miley has her own thing going on, and has for a while. So her actual age in terms of how much life she’s lived is way older than 19. Do you think she’s latching onto Liam to give her a purpose in life?
5. She’ll Never Do Better!
Let’s srsly hope she realized that Liam Hemsworth is maybe/possibly/definitely the hottest guy on Earth. Factor in his sick acting skills, insane body and uh-dorable accent and really Miley, how could you ever hope to top the star from The Hunger Games? Pfft. As if.
Do you think Miley’s ready for marriage? Or should she and Liam have waited a little longer? And do you think they’ll last?
