Congratulations are in order, I suppose, for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth … because at the tender ages of 19 and 22 (respectively), the couple have decided to go ahead and get ENGAGED to be married! Now, far be it for me to poo poo on a blossoming love affair but it does seem to me that these young’ns are rushing things a bit. BUT, it really doesn’t matter what you, I or anyone else thinks … cuz Miley and Liam are gonna do what they’re gonna do … and what they’re gonna do is get hitched.
Wedding Party in the U.S.A.! Miley Cyrus and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth are engaged to be married after three years of dating, their reps confirm to PEOPLE exclusively. “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus, 19, tells PEOPLE. Australian actor Hemsworth, 22, who met Cyrus when they costarred in The Last Song in 2009, proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane. Next up for the couple: Cyrus is in the studio working on a new album, while Hemsworth is currently filming Empire State in New Orleans. He’ll also shoot Paranoia with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman before beginning production on the second Hunger Games installment.
Erm … while this news doesn’t totally surprise me, I still feel compelled to express my concerns. Yes, many couples are able to get married young and enjoy long and very happy married lives together. But no, not many of those relationships are rooted in the world of celebrity and fame. That said, I really do wish Miley and Liam all the best. I remember when Liley started up as a couple right around the time they filmed their film The Last Song together (after Miley ended things with Justin Gaston, remember him?) and I thought they made a cute couple. Here we are, 3 years later and the couple are ready to settle down and say their I Dos. Who knows, in a couple years from now, Miley could be a mom. Wow. Well, one thing at a time … the couple have to make it down the aisle first. What do y’all think of Miley’s engagement to Liam? Does this sound like a relationship that will stand the test of time or do you think this is just an impetuous and naive mistake waiting to blow up in their faces? HMMM.
