Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston Engaged US Weekly Cover

Bristol and Levi Engaged! — Mistake or Made For Each Other?

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston look like one happy family on the cover of the new US Weekly — and they'll soon make it official. After more than a year of public back and forth and family feuding, the teen parents of baby Tripp say it feels right to get married.

While Sarah Palin might have thought something was up when Levi apologized to her last week, the couple told the magazine that she didn't know yet. And Bristol, who will soon be able to give up her abstinence pledge, was worried: "It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board." I hope they told her before she saw the magazine cover! Since the news is out now, Sarah offered her support, I think, saying: "Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what's best for our children."

Actually, when the couple chooses to have a magazine cover story announce their engagement, and both people earn their livings from sharing the intimate details of their lives, and one member of the couple gets paid to advise young women on how to conduct their sex lives, and because we only know about them because one mother used them as props when she was running for the second highest office in the U.S., they've pretty much gone out of their way to make it our business.

To me, nothing and no one can actually *make* you behave in a certain way or say/do certain things. What Levi did after the breakup was completely decided by him. He could have not acted like a douche, but instead, he did. He was the boyfriend of some crazy vice president wanna-be's daughter...he's truly not that special. Sure, he got some publicity because he knocked up a teenager, but it's not like he became this super-celebrity. Anything he did had nothing to do with him becoming some sort of star, it was probably some kind of teen/angsty BS, wanting to improve his look by talking crap about Sarah Palin (which was all the rage), and whatever the hell else. I'm glad that he's sticking by his kid and Bristol. I hope they don't feel like they "have to get married" because they have a baby together. I also hope that Bristol sees that this guy, at least publicly, has been an incredible idiot, and probably would do so again if thrown into that position. I don't think they are "made for each other" by any means, but congrats to them.

People who have a child together do not have to BE together. I am so proud of some of the strong people in my life who have stepped up and said, "I love my baby, but I'm not in love with the father" and manage a healthy platonic relationship instead of forcing some sort of romantic aspect for the sake of the child. Because it will really hurt the kid in the end. This is a huge huge mistake.

I love that she took an abstinence pledge after having a baby. Anyway, it's probably a mistake, but I wish them the best. Glad Levi is doing right by her and the kid.

I agree with onlysourcherry. The fact that they told on magazine before your parents, that's really immature. I can't see this lasting, and I smell more gossip in the future (when they end up breaking up for good..ok maybe there'd be a 3rd round or something LOL).

I don't know... immaturity and sudden fame can cause people to do some really stupid stuff. Levi was a small town redneck who was suddenly on the cover of people magazine. The stuff he did isn't okay but you can see how it happened. That said, the fact that they told people magazine before the immediate family indicates that either it's not real or they are still very, very immature.

I think this is all for the next cover and the next paycheque. That poor kid, having to be raised by two idiots.

He is a loser. Down to the core. While I may not agree with their politics, I don't think they are losers. And I also don't think that being parents of a child means you should try to become a family. Co-parenting does not mean being a couple. She is in a fairy land thinking she gets the hubby, the kid and the picket fence. He sees what he always saw: $$$$$.

I'd think that it was a good idea, and I'd be happy for them for everything except the fact that he was such a douche after they broke up, said bad crap about her family, then posed in playboy. If it wasn't for that, I'd say it's nice that they are trying to make it work and be a family, but obviously they're both idiots.

Whoa Bristol looks like she's 35 on that cover! I think they deserve each other and they really aren't that bright.

Clearly they need each other. How else will they continue to make tabloid headlines?
