Remember back when Teen Mom Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers got married at the end of 2012 and told the world they had a really, really good reason for rushing things along? Well yeah, we all thought that the good reason was that Jenelle was pregnant -- but some new details have come out that may reveal otherwise. Jenelle threatened divorce when Courtland left town while she may be having a miscarriage (yeah I can hardly keep up, either), and Courtland tweeted something that's caught our attention.
Rogers told followers that he had left Jenelle to go to Michigan and visit his best friend's grave because he "honestly [doesn't] have much longer on this earth there are things I have to do."
Hmmm. Could this explain why both he and Jenelle have been in and out of the hospital together SO many times throughout the last few months? Could Courtland's "mysterious illness" be the reason they got hitched so quickly?
When you care about someone so much that you want to spend the rest of your life with them, I can only imagine how frightening that's got to be to find out that life may be cut short. Really, though, dating for like two months and then getting hitched ... what is this, A Walk to Remember?
The question arises: Is the state of someone's health a good reason to make other important decisions, like marriage? I think it's circumstantial. I believe you need to think about what you would do if the illness was non-existent. In the case of marriage, would you be doing this at this point, otherwise? It's a slippery slope, one that I personally hope I never have to tackle.

Either way, we don't know if Courtland's claims are legitimate. However, if he really does have some life-threatening illness, then there's no doubt in my mind that all of this arguing, ridiculous media attention, and stress are NOT helping his cause.
Do you think Courtland's really sick? Or do you think this is another ploy for attention and sympathy?
