Hearing that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were calling off their wedding last year was a major bummer for fans and followers of the long-term Teen Mom couple. Thankfully, the two are still together, but it's not all rainbows and sunshine. Judging from some tense moments between them on MTV's Being Catelynn special, "Tylynn" still has some work to do on their relationship.
In fact, Tyler took to Twitter to semi-apologize for and explain his nasty, hurtful response to Catelynn while the two were discussing his decision to bail on the wedding.
So to everyone, was I being a dick? Probably. Am I a complete wuss about marriage? Yeah. For some reason it FREAKS me out #BeingCatelynn— Tyler BaltierraMTV (@TylerBaltierra) February 24, 2014
Marriage is freaky because, sometimes I feel like things can change when you put a "title" on it. Is it a guy thing? Idk #BeingCatelynn— Tyler BaltierraMTV (@TylerBaltierra) February 24, 2014
While it would have been nice to see him come out and say he was actually sorry for "being a dick," you gotta appreciate Tyler's candor here. What he's saying is something far too few brides- and grooms-to-be are willing to confess: Marriage is freaky. The title -- the marriage certificate, the ceremony, the legality of it all -- is a BIG deal, and it can definitely change the dynamic between a couple. If it didn't, why would we bother? But it's the things that freak you out most in life that you have to make a point to contend with.
That said, I hope Tyler is doing what he needs to do to face his fear and make himself husband material. Because like he later said, Catelynn deserves that.
How do you feel about Tyler's confession? Do you think Catelynn deserves more from him?
