'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Is Considering Divorce ... Already
So who had "less than a month" in the how long will Jenelle Evans' marriage last bet? Not sure there's much of a prize to be had, but you win ... bragging rights? The Teen Mom 2 star is already talking divorce from Courtland Rogers. You know, the guy she just married after two months of dating?
Now for the truly troubling news: Jenelle claims she doesn't care that her marriage is over. Really? Getting married after just two months of dating doesn't point to a deep understanding of what it really means to be hitched, but at least divorce should be taken seriously, right?
Not with Jenelle. She first announced her impending divorce was her fault on Twitter (where else?) early this morning because:
I just want to let everyone know that it is my fault that Courtland and I are going to get a divorce because I left last night at 3 am ... To go hang out with his worst enemy and left him home sleeping and worried
But when fans started weighing in, Jenelle was quick to say she's already moving on. She's OK with her actions, even if they pissed off her new hubby:
Now I got broke up with and I don't even care cause o well right?? I love u tori
The series of tweets upset not just Jenelle's fans but co-star Kailyn Lowry. Kail commented that she wished Jenelle would keep some of the personal stuff off Twitter, but later removed the Tweet when she was attacked for hating on her co-star (a comment Kailyn said was unfair, noting she's always there for Jenelle).
Kailyn's point is warranted. It's unhealthy to spend your time ranting about relationship issues outside of the relationship. We all need a friend's shoulder to cry on from time to time, but the only way to really make changes with a significant other is to talk TO them. Going outside the relationship to rant tends to make us angrier and allows us to wallow in self-pity: neither of which is constructive means to solving the problem.
But then, Jenelle doesn't seem like she's willing to work on the problem. By her own admission, she's already given up on her marriage.
Ironically, this may be one of Jenelle's smarter decisions. Courtland is an "old friend" but he's revealed himself to be anything but a smart choice. His out-of-control Twitter rant this week alone spoke volumes.
What do you think about Jenelle and Courtland possibly breaking up? Is this the right road for her?
