Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston Engaged?

After disparaging public quarrels with the Palin family, Levi Johnston has changed his tune. US Magazine reported the engagement between Bristol Palin and former Playmate model and father of their one year old son Tripp, which is also wrapped in apologies.


Oh, man does this take guts!

Kids parenting kids in the public eye are getting to be a bit much (think MTV shows), but I have to hand it to Levi for showing an uncharacteristic amount of internal fortitude to face not only the media firestorm which will likely result from this turn of events, but from the Palin's themselves.

But, is this what's best for them and their son?

The odds are stacked against them, but hey, who are we to judge, right?

I hope this very young (Bristol is 19 and Levi 20 years old), couple hurled to the media's forefront much the same way Bristol's mother was, Sarah Palin, can keep it together and follow through with the biggest commitment of their lives: raising a child.

What do you think? Are they doomed or deft in taking this next step?

    I would say definitively “doomed”. As it is, marriage is very difficult. Then on top of that, you add on several factors that will work against them, such as their age, the responsiblity of a child, a somewhat public life, immaturity (on both parts) and an overbearing mother-in-law (and I do mean Sarah). Their chances of having a happy marriage just seems very dim. They will have many challenges, and I don't think they have the maturity to overcome them. I may be wrong, but I think that the odds are just stacked against them. Hopefully, she won't get pregnant again anytime soon. To me, the real question is……how long will the marriage last?? I give it three years tops. However, and in spite of my views, I do wish them luck. Ultimately, the best gift you can give a child, is to be raised in a healthy & happy environment with both their mommy and daddy.

    Carmen, I couldn't have expressed all this any better than you did. Though they're not the only ones to do things out of the normal social norm, they did stumble in the pubic eye– which must be so difficult to live with! — and we all wish them the best in their quest to get on the right path and do what's best for their child.
    I completley agree with you!
