Frances Bean Cobain Engaged & Her Dad Would Be Proud

It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well ... too bad Nirvana didn't cover Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell," because that would be the most appropriate song ever to play when 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain walks down the aisle. That is, if the rumors are true and she is, in fact, engaged to Isaiah Silva of the L.A. band The Rambles, her boyfriend of over a year who just happens to resemble a certain musician who is, sadly, no longer with us.

Indeed, photos of Cobain and Silva together bring to mind a young Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. And I mean that in the best way possible: Playful, in love, creative, free. And if the two of them really do get married, I hope that's exactly how they stay. Frances Bean deserves the happiness that eluded her parents.


Even though my first reaction as a mom to news of a teen getting married is always "No!! Wait!!!" that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of teenage marriages that work out perfectly well ... better, in fact, than those of couples who do everything the "right" way: College, grad school, internship, junior level position, engagement, mid-level position, money-saving phase, wedding, senior level position, first baby, and so on.

I guess what it comes down to is this: Frances Bean Cobain got slammed with more than her share of hard times during the first part of her life. Can't the rest just be ... happily ever after? C'est la vie, said the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell!

Whatever happens, Isaiah Silva is seriously hot. (He's the one in the video wearing the off-the-shoulder cheetah print.)

Do you think teenage marriages can work?
