'Bachelor' Sean Lowe May Be Getting Married Much Sooner Than Anyone Expected

OMG 21

Sean Lowe

Well, well, well -- it sure sounds like he's sick and tired of the whole "born-again virgin" thing. A new report claims that Bachelor Sean Lowe is planning a "quickie" wedding with his fiance not too long after the Bachelor finale airs.

Yep, supposedly Sean and his sweetie are planning on tying the knot this summer, making their engagement one of the shortest on Bachelor/Bachelorette record.

And if this rumor is true and they do already have wedding plans in the works, it's only natural for us to assume that they're rushing things because they can't wait any longer than a few months to get busy in between the sheets, right?

Ok, ok -- a "source" claims, "They're getting married quickly for love, not for the sex. He's head over heels for her, and he wants to share that with the world."

(Sure he does.)

If they aren't getting married right away so they can finally get it on, then why in the heck are they in such a hurry to seal the deal?

If I had to guess, I'd say it's because of the lousy track record of most Bachelor/Bachelorette couples. Other than Trista and Ryan Sutter, and Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum -- most of the show's romances fizzle out before they even get started. The longer couples drag out their engagements, the less chance they seem to have of actually making it to the altar. It totally makes sense that Sean and his chosen lady want to make things official as soon as possible.

But still, I can't help but think they are making a mistake by rushing things along instead of taking more time to really get to know each other and be a couple without any cameras following them around. They need to see if they really fit well into each other's day-to-day lives before becoming husband and wife. (Or at least that's what any two sensible adults would do.)

And one more thing -- who else thinks Sean and his fiance need to take a "test drive" in the sack before getting hitched? (Me! Me! Raises hand.)

Do you think it's a good idea for Sean to get married right away?
