Mama June & Sugar Bear's Wedding Was Just What the Honey Boo Boo Bunch Needed

mama juneSay what you will about Mama June, I think Honey Boo Boo got lucky in the mom department. Okay, fine, the 7-year-old starlet could have better eating habits. But Mama June (June Shannon, 33) clearly puts a high priority on her family's happiness -- and her wedding (or re-commitment ceremony or whatever) to Boo Boo clan dad Sugar Bear was proof. And it had nothing to do with the giant inflatable water slide or the camo-and-orange formalwear or the fact that it was on Cinco de Mayo or even the very, very green cake. It's because Mama June and Gummy Sugar Bear's backyard vow-exchanging extravaganza wasn't just about the couple, it was about their kids. As Mama June said, "The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it. I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."

Aww, that's as sweet as ... well, sugar. (In the form of a bear.) But it's more than just sweet. As a divorced mom/child of divorce (double whammy!), I know all too well how a stable, happy relationship between parents is the foundation for a solid family. Which is not to say that families with just one parent can't be solid and stable and happy -- just saying it helps. A lot. And Mama June is teaching her daughters -- Pumpkin, Chickadee, Chubbs (and Alana, of course) -- how to find the same thing she has with Sugar Bear:

"Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right. If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea."

"I give this advice to my daughters because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them."

So what if sketti's what's for dinner? Mama June and Sugar Bear are doing right by their kids.

Do you think Mama June and Sugar Bear's wedding was important to their kids?

Awwww she looked beautiful!! I have always loved this family!! When I saw the episode when Sugar Bear said e loved those like his own, and he considers them his daughters, I knew that this was a more stable family than people thought!!

So pretty! Her dress is so perfect and she looks so happy!! Congrats to the happy couple!!!

I don't know why people hate on them so much! They are a wonderful family, different than most families, but no two families are the same!

She looks really pretty. I'm sure the girls are happy, Sugar Bear seems to be a good stepdad to the three that aren't his, and they have all expressed wanting him to marry their mom.

It is hideous. And it seems as if alot of people that don't know this woman and the family believe every word that comes out of her mouth. Smh
