Jamie Lynn's Engaged!

Jamie Lynn's Engaged!

Jamie Lynn Spears is apparently showing off some bling to go with that growing baby bump. According to People, the 16-year-old future mom is engaged to her 18-year-old boyfriend Casey Aldridge. Ever since we learned of the pregnancy, there have been rumors of rocky roads between the young couple, so this comes as a bit of a shock — but I guess we're used to surprises from Jamie Lynn at this point. While we understand wanting to tie the knot before having their baby, it still seems a bit rushed considering their youth. What do you think — does Jamie Lynn Spears' engagement seem like a good idea?

This is not, this is not good. Not a good idea to follow up one mistake with a poorly made decision. But people have to make their own choices no matter how stupid they are, the decisions and choices and sometimes the people too. It's her life and she's going to do what she wants to do anyway, no matter how dumb. Talk about growing up too soon. Where was her mother and father when she was having a sexual relationship with this guy?

I can't get excited over the engagement of a pregnant 16 year old. It's not like she has any real grasp of what marriage or 'till death do us part' is all about. It's just sad.

Yeah, that will last! Not. This world and the people in it amaze me sometimes...and not in a good way.

Not at all...it's one thing if a couple was already planning to get engaged when they find out they're expecting, but at 16? Odds are pretty bad. I mean, my grandma got married at 16, but that was almost 60 years ago & somehow they rocked it out...but jeez, today? Good luck....

I don't like when it seems that couples feel pressured to be engaged or married because of a baby. I hope that they want this and that they do want to be with each other, because if not it's just making the situation worse.

even thou she's only 16, she is pregeant, she should get married to give the baby (a name)- her boyfriend's name. i don't think it will work out in the long run, unfortunately. sure hope it does thou.

kcross is right...babies having babies and now babies marrying babies...i won't believe they are until it is confirmed. i am 17 and i wear a ring on my wedding finger. People think that i am engaged, but i am not. i don't understand how people get pregnant and then decide they should get married. you shouldn't be having children until you know that you will be together for the kids. otherwise they grow up with problems like depression...to me this is a very sad situation. :(

I don't think getting married just because you are pregnant is the smart thing to do at ANY age. But she is 16 I know with my 16 year old bf we thought we were gonnabe together forever and get married. This could be adolescent dreaming or it could be real. I know people that have been together since high school got married young at it has worked out. And I also know others where it failed miserably. It just depends on the couple their marriage may work it may not. But nowadays most people (who get married later in life) quit at their marriage and still divorce anyway so what would be the difference? I say GO FOR IT!! What has she got to lose? I would not do it or let MY kid do it but what the hack do i care. Is this going to ruin her life... not as long as she gets a prenup

I definitely don't think that they are ready for marriage...I couldn't imagine being age 16 and having to think about getting married, let alone having to raise a child. My boyfriend and I are expecting a baby in June, and although we are a lot older than Jamie Lynn and her boyfriend, we feel that we don't want to rush into marriage just because of a baby...it doesn't seem like the right reason. We would like to wait until we are settled in our life with one thing until we move onto the next big step....I wish her luck, but it's just not a good idea.

In this day and age, getting married young is a baaaaaad idea. But I sometime wonder how our grand parents can marry and have kids at such a young age and still make it work. What changed?

People used to get married and then have kids. I give her kudos for thinking of the kid, before herself and her career. The kid will benefit from having it's Dad around. Better he's in the picture, for all three of them. Who knows if it'll work out? Better they try and fail.

i dunno, i hope she and that guy can make it work. i seriously doubt that baby will ever live an even barely there normal life. i feel sorry for that little guy.

Big no-no. Marriage will just add more problems, not a solution.

Wasn't this dude just recently questioning the paternity of her unborn kid? Now he's proposing? Even if that was just a rumor, sounds like a baaaad idea to me

i do think it's a good idea to be in a committed relationship before having a baby. is she mature enough to be married? don't know, since her mother is still calling the shots i kind of wonder. 16 is too young too be a mom (imho) and too young to be married. but it's old enough to make these kinds of mistakes. maybe this will settle jamie lynn down long enought get through the first few years of the baby's life. that's better than nothing.
