Ok, so I know they have a seriously mad case of puppy love, but the idea of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy eloping is by far one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. According to one source, Taylor whisked Conor away on her private jet and his family has no idea when he'll be back -- and apparently "no one in Hyannis Port would be surprised if they eloped." (Are you believing this?)
Considering Conor is only 19 and Taylor is still a spring chicken herself at 22, the idea of them running off and getting married is not only bizarre, it's also incredibly stupid -- and not just because of their young age.
First of all, they've only been dating for a couple months, which is basically about five to ten seconds by Hollywood standards. They need at least a good year before they'll really know if they're in this thing for the long haul. (And that's more than enough time for her to gather a bunch of post-breakup song material.)
Second, Taylor tends to fall hard and fast for men, which has never really panned out for her as far as finding lasting relationships go. It might be wise for her to back off just a little bit and let Conor pursue her, otherwise he may get overwhelmed and make a run for the border.
But the biggest reason why Taylor should never entertain the idea of eloping with Conor is a no-brainer -- because he's a Kennedy. (Duh!) Every girl dreams of having some big, elaborate wedding straight out of a fairy tale, and by marrying into the Kennedy clan, she's sure to have one of the most incredible weddings anyone has ever witnessed. (She'll hold out for that party, if she knows what's good for her.)
Of course, she is really into all things super-romantic, so maybe getting hitched on a whim is more her speed. But regardless, there's more than enough time down the road for Conor to put a ring on it. For now, they should really just focus on enjoying each other's company and act like two kids in love instead of turning into an old married couple overnight.
Would you be shocked if Taylor eloped? Did you elope?
