Maci Bookout Isn't Getting Married for Her Kid's Sake

maci bookoutThings are going well for Teen Mom Maci Bookout and boyfriend Taylor McKinney right now. Actually, things are going so well for the couple that Maci is talking marriage. She hearts Taylor, and Taylor hearts her, so why not just take the plunge already?

Okay, so that's not exactly how Maci put it, but pretty close. Here's what she had to say about her lovah:


"He’s like the identical version of me, except he’s a guy. We’re looking for the same things in a marriage," Maci said in an interview with In Touch Weekly. She then talked about how she considered getting back with Ryan Edwards, the father of her adorable 4-year-old son, Bentley. But then she realized that was a bad idea. "I love Taylor, not Ryan," she said.

Good for Maci. If anyone deserves happiness, she does. And getting back with Ryan -- just because he's the father of her child -- would be a bad idea for all parties involved, especially Bentley.

It takes maturity to know that what might seem like a short-term "fix" for you and/or your child isn't always the path that should be followed. Maci and Ryan didn't work out for a reason. And if they gave things another go, things would only wind up being more painful -- especially for Bentley -- in the end. Bentley's parents should both be with people who make them happy. Because a happy parent is a good parent.

Now, come on, Taylor! Pop the Q already!

Would you like to see Maci and Taylor get married?
