'Teen Mom' Maci Bookout's Confession About Marriage Is Completely Crazy

Eye Roll 18

maci bookoutTeen Mom Maci Bookout loves her fans so much that she doesn't mind answering all their "off the wall questions" on Twitter. This week, in addition to sharing fun facts like her favorite Pop Tart flavor and whether she would rather be bald or have dreads, Maci answered the "wacky" Q: "Do you want to get married?"

Now, that's not exactly a crazy Q for most of us, but alright ... Being that she's mom to Bentley and seems to have a lot of love in her life with BF Kyle Regal, you'd guess her answer might be along the lines of, "Of course!" or at the very least, "Someday." But ooooh no! Apparently, the correct answer is: "Never."

Whoa. Wait. She NEVER wants to get married?!  

Okay, I love Maci as much as the next person. She's a sweetiepie, really. But honestly, she's also a child! Hello, she stars on Teen Mom! At just 20 years old, how can she honestly, confidently say she never wants to get married? Please, chicky!

Look, I get it. Up until I was probably hmm ... 19 myself, I was skeptical about ever getting married. It's easy these days as a young, independent woman to think you don't necessarily need the convention of marriage. And no, marriage isn't for everyone.

Furthermore, now that I'm engaged, and the date has been set, I could totally understand why someone might say they'll only get hitched when hell freezes over. Not because I don't adore my future husband and want to spend my life with him. But because the whole process/cost/psychiatric toll of planning a wedding can be extremely overwhelming! 

Still, to quote one of Maci's contemporaries, the Biebs, "Never say 'never'!" Because despite all the trials and tribulations associated with saying "I do," there are so many reasons to just do it. From creating your own separate family unit to having a partner to grow old with, it's worth the annoying parts and all the risk. Or so I hear. I can admit that even at 28, I'm still really too young to know it all.

What do you think about Maci's declaration that she'll "never" get married?

I think we all know that Maci doesn't believe that she will never get married look at who her first love was and how that engagement and wedding planning went she was left single and heartbroken I'm sure wants to get married but not till she knows for sure she wanted to marry Kyle to and that didn't work out she is probably just scared

Maybe she just knows what she wants and maybe marriage just isn't it. Marriage isn't for everyone. Look at Goldy Hawn and Kurt Russell, they aren't married and they have a wonderful relationship. Just cause she doesn't want to get married doesn't make her crazy.

No matter if she eventually gets married or not I'm glad that was her response. She seems like she isn't going to jump into a poorly thought out marriage, which is much better than a lot of the other moms featured. She has a kid to take care of, and while I hope she finds love, she has plenty of time for that and her child is what is important in her life.

More and more people are now living as married families but are never legally married. Because of the increasing divorce rate and societies pressure on married couples with problems, it is now the trend to not get married. As a none religious person marriage is just a piece of paper. Many states allow heterosexual couples to register as domestic partners to acquire the same legal rights as married couples.

I never plan on getting married... Ever. I'm also a single mom, but I'm not a 'baby' at 32, I just know that I don't want to get married period, and it's doesn't make me crazy.

LOL. These little articles judging the "Teen Mom" stars' every move never fail to make laugh, and usually it's not because they're meant to be humorous! *eye roll*

One question: how can you speak so matter-of-factly about something that is merely an opinion? Personally, I think it's a pretty mature decision for a 20 year old to make as oppose to jumping into a marriage like some of her co-stars. But then again, that's just my opinion and I'm not going to call someone crazy or a child if they don't agree with it. If coming to any conclusions after reading this, I would say that you are in the wrong for prejudging and basically making a mountain out of a mole hill. At 28, one would think you would have more sense than to post something like this, especially since it's pretty clear that you are convinced your opinions are superior to others. Seems like you may have a bit of growing up to do yourself. Bottom line: if Macy feels like she never wants to get married, she should not be put down for speaking out against the norm. And who is to say she won't change her mind in a few years? After all, she reserves that right, just as anyone else does.

i think shes just bitter because she was engaged once and then really wanted to marry kyle king but he wasnt ready and they broke up eventually. im sure she will change her mind someday. but she needs to understand that he needs to be alot more serious about who she dates or sees because shes bringing each man into her little boys life leaving him wondering. its not healthy or fair. and yes young people usually date alot but she kinda gave that up having a child so young.

Marriage is for suckers. Scam. I don't need the government or the church to define my relationship.

I think your last paragrah speaks volumes about you own personal views, and your immaturity. At 28, *I am 29* you should more than realize that marriage guarantees NOTHING, especially not "forever". You should also know that not being married doesn't doom you to die alone. It also doesn't make you a family one way or the other. Ask my mother who is 53 and has been married 5 or 6 times.

marriage just makes it more expensive to break up!
