'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Has No Clothing Thanks to Her Husband

Jenelle EvansTeen Mom Jenelle Evans has a lot to learn about men, life, and raising babies. There is no doubt that the woman, now in her early 20s, still has a long way to go before she is completely good to be on her own. Her latest "marriage" to Courtland Rogers has become such a mess in such a short amount of time, it's almost stunning.

The latest in this saga is that Jenelle is accusing Courtland of pawning her possessions, namely her Ugg boots and other articles of clothing. Come ON. Enough already.

On top of the fact that Courtland sounds like horrible, horrible news (they were married like five minutes before drama galore), there is also the little issue of Jenelle's child and her whole mess of a life. I feel uncomfortable watching it unfold. It feels wrong and voyeuristic to even be talking about this poor woman. She is clearly so troubled. But, actually, I would bet SHE is more normal than Maci.

Becoming a teen mother in itself is a cry for help. It doesn't mean that no one can make it work. Tons of teen mothers make it every single day. They finish college, they get good jobs, they support their families.

But it isn't really a good thing. I don't care how many times you say, "but I made it," the reality is, having a child at 16 or 17 isn't ideal. It isn't healthy. And it will cause extra pain.

It's also not something girls who are doing well do. In other words, a lot of the time, becoming a teen mom at all is symptomatic of a larger issue. So probably a lot more girls have outcomes like Jenelle's than Maci's. Were it not for Jenelle's mom, I shudder to think of where Jace might be.

Because, seriously, what WOULD happen to him?

Jenelle needs to get her act together. I am sure that there are teen mothers who pull it off. Look at Maci or Chelsea or Farrah. But there are also a whole bunch of others who turn out like Amber and Jenelle, and my guess is there are more of the latter kind.

It's sad and it's the reason young motherhood isn't usually the best idea.

Do you think Jenelle and her turmoil are the norm?

I think that her Mom doesn't do her any favors....seriously can't believe some of the things that come out of that woman's mouth.  That a mother would talk that way to her own daughter.

Who the F cares????  How old are the writers for the stir and why do they care so much about these teenagers?  Leave them alone

You're completely right. Becoming a teen parent is symptomatic of.... Two horny teenagers. Whomp whomp. Sure some of them have messed up situations or something, but really. I'm a teen mom because my birth control failed and I went at it with my SO and here we are. End of story.

Its so obvious to me after watching is that Janelle is desperate for a male role in her life. Obviously her father hasn't been in her life and her mother takes out her frustration on Janelle because of her father's absence. And do we even know who Jace's father is???

Teen Pregnancy DOES NOT mean a cry for help or attention!!! Check it out when I got pregnant at 17 do u think for one second I thought "oh I'm pregnant now ill have a home or family" fuck no!! From 13 to 17 the state had custody of me, I got pregnant because I had sex the wrong night OOPPSS!!!! I had sex off birth control and could have cared less about a condom cuz I was with my boyfriend. ... my fault, our choice, my problem!!! Do you know what I did???? I sure didn't cry I sure didn't run to welfare or abortion clinic, I carried a pregnancy BY MYSELF AS A RUN AWAY!!!! and then you know what I PLACED my child in the loving home she is in now 6 years ago! Now at 24 I'm a mom to a beautiful healthy 3 yo going to college, working, providing WITHOUT attention, pity, help or child support ... SCREW YOUR POST and judgment/opinion now everything or everyone is what Webster or statistics say it is ohhh and I did graduate and I do carry a 4.0 in medical school.... what do u or anyone have to say to that??????
