'Teen Mom' Kailyn Lowry's Engagement Reminds Us That Size Doesn't Matter

kailyn lowryTeen Mom Kailyn Lowry is engaged -- the young reality star took to Twitter to confirm rumors that boyfriend Javi Marroquin had popped the question and even posted a pic showing off her diamond ring. There aren't any concrete wedding plans yet, but Kailyn says that hopefully she'll walk down the aisle in the near future.

Normally I would be more skeptical of a woman deciding to get married at such a young age, especially when she has herself and her child to worry about, but something tells me this match may be a solid one, and that something is the ring.


Not the horror movie, though wouldn't you like to see that analogy come together, but rather her actual diamond engagement ring.

More from The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Kailyn Lowry Does Not Need to Be Engaged Already

It's small, it's dainty, it's feminine, it's perfect. It shows that they're already being responsible about money, that they're confident in their union and don't need Mr. Carat to do the talking for them, and that they're not materialistic.

Some women get engaged just so they can show off the ring, just so they can thrust this glittery symbol of their fiance's salary in their frenemies' faces, but it doesn't look like Kailyn expected nor received anything but a simple yet elegant symbol of real love and commitment.

Plus, a big ring does not eternal bliss promise. Kris Humphries gave Kim Kardashian a 20-carat monstrosity, and we all know how that ended. Paris Hilton's engagement ring (yeah, remember that?) was 24 carats, Christina Aguilera's was also around 20 carats, and one of Elizabeth Taylor's engagement rings was 30 carats. Each of those ladies is now single, or dead.

Here's to Kailyn and Javi -- they're off to a great start.

Do you think the size of the engagement ring matters?
