Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Are Gettin’ Hitched!


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.

    I would not be happy if my 19 year old daughter came home engaged! As you said, yes some couples marry young and stand the test of time, but I think 19 is way to immature (and let’s face it, Miley has hardly been the model of celebrity maturity!)

  • cmc

    I actually think they have a chance! Miley has been a “grown-up” for years, working full time and steadily all through her childhood. I’d think she’s probably craving a family life, stability, and love. Since they’ve gotten together, she’s been much more mellow and subdued, and those two kids seem to really love each other.

    Will it work? Who knows. But I think that out of all of these young couples (Justena? Jonas + whoever? Even Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield), these two are the most “stable” and rooted. They’ve even been living together for years, right? Anyway, best of luck to them. I can’t believe I just wrote two paragraphs about Miley effin Cyrus.

  • Ama

    Now, just because a couple becomes ‘engaged’ doesn’t mean they will get married right away. I know some couples that became engaged when they were in their early 20’s and did not actually get married until they were in their late 20’s/early 30’s.

    • @Ama — Normally, I’d agree with you … but celebs who make their engagements public tend to go thru with the weddings because people expect to see/celebrate their nuptials. This is why I think many celeb marriages end unsuccessfully, they marry for the wrong reasons :/

    • Ama

      Hmm. Good point.

      Kind of makes me think of the people who rush marriage so they can live together, because they have kids, etc- Basically, all for the public eye.

      Sad. Hopefully it’s not the same way with this couple and they don’t rush into marriage and take their time.

  • Chelsea

    Unfortunately I don’t see it lasting. She has been with him for three years and is only 19 now? She was a baby when they first started dating and she is still a baby, really. I agree completely, some marriages can last from a young age, but even the best relationships would struggle in the celebrity world. I think that she is too inexperienced relationship-wise and might change her mind when something new and exciting comes along. It takes a lot of strength to stay together and fix problems when they arise, and I don’t think they will have it in them. But who knows, maybe they are great together in person and maybe it will last. Our generation seems to give up too easily on marriage, but I do hope for their sake they are getting married for the right reasons and will stick it out through the good and bad.

  • ClaireMichelle

    Congrats to the both of them! They are a beautiful couple that have always seemed to be very much in love. Here’s to hoping they have a wonderful (and lengthy) engagement that leads to a very happy marriage.

  • Freakinfatone

    Lol, Trent. When I read your comments, I couldn’t help but hear my mom’s voice from back when my sister got engaged young especially on that “they’re gonna do what they want to do” part.

    I actually have hope for Miley and Liam. They seem to be stable and committed to each other and have been for three years now. Some people do meet their soulmates when they’re young.

    • @Freakinatone — “Lol, Trent. When I read your comments, I couldn’t help but hear my mom’s voice” LMAO!! Thanks, I guess ;)

  • Alyssa

    If you can’t legally have a champagne toast at your wedding, you probably shouldn’t get married.

    I try not to be Judgy McJudgerson, but seriously.

    • tessa

      Haha – excellent point! :)

    • Jeff


    • geana

      I couldn’t legally drink at my wedding and 8 years later me and the hubs are still happily married, we had only been together a year. I look back at it now and think damn I was so young! but some people just work. And I can’t believe I am actually saying this, but I am happy for these two and hope they last!

    • Tamara

      If they get married here (Australia) then they can both drink champagne at their wedding

  • Meghan

    Well, they might as well get that first marriage out of the way. Given how young they are starting, I’m sure there will be several unions in their future.

  • Susan

    Anyone want to venture a guess at how long this marriage will last (assuming they even make it down the aisle)? I hate to be so negative, but I give it 3 years tops.

    • Jeff

      74 days

  • Megsterg

    They both seem pretty smart to me, so I have a feeling their engagement will be pretty long. Who knows though. But I wish them the best of luck!

  • Kelly

    Age is nothing but a number. Many Hollywood marriages do not seem to last regardless of age, unfortunately.

    Only time will tell how this marriage goes!

  • Shannon

    At least they’re together for 3 years.. Most celebs are engaged and married before they even hit the one year mark!! Drew Barrymore is on her 3rd marriage and how long has she been with her hubby?

  • JillyD

    He seems like he has a good head on his shoulders, I can’t say as much for her. Congrats to the happy couple anyway.

    I was 19 when my hubby and I got engaged after 4 months of dating and got married 4 years later. I turned 31 last month and things are still great!

    • Jackie

      That’s fantastic, but you’re not a celebrity with paparazzi watching your every move. :/
      Its going to be difficult for them but I do wish them well. I love Liam, Miley not so much, but they seem happy. :)

  • Maddie

    I expected the complete opposite. I have noticed a pattern in some past celeb relationships – when one’s career really starts taking off (Hunger Games), a breakup announcement usually follows.
    Since they are announcing an engagement instead, I think this must be real love and I think they will make it.

  • Darcy

    I may be a romantic, but I think they actually have a chance. She’s not a typical 19 year old, and I think he’s really good for her. Who knows what goes on in private, but in public they seem like a pretty stable couple.

  • BradywantsMoore

    Since I love her more than anything I will congratulate them both, hell she will make a beautiful bride, but Trent, don’t say babies!! No babies!! For a long time lol

  • Lacey

    I’ve been with my boyfriend since I was 17 (I’m 25 now). I know that if I had gotten married at 19 or 20, we wouldn’t be together today. That is too much pressure on such a young person. Then add in the Hollywood aspect, it’s going to make it a difficult one. But if they can make it through, it will make them that much stronger.

  • nicole

    i actually see this working. IMO Liam has been the perfect thing for Miley.
    i can see them doing a long engagement – or at least long by hollywood standards.

    good luck to them.

  • rOXy

    ALL marriages are a leap of faith. These days, it seems a lot of people focus on the ceremony and forget about the actual commitment they are making. Miley is growing up to be on of Hollywood’s great beauties, and though I was too old to be in her original fanbase, her recent press as really changed my awareness of her. I hope they make it a long engagement. I am sure the wedding will be as breathtaking as the ring is. I wish them all the best and will stand behind them because goodness knows they will have enough obstacles coming their way.

  • Lynne

    I personally think that if you’re not old enough to legally drink at your own wedding then you’re too young to be getting married. But with that said, Miley seems to be wiser beyond her years. I do wish them the best.

    • Lacey

      She could drink at her own wedding if it’s in Canada :)

    • her age never stopped her from drinking before…

  • I think they’re really in love. Celebrating love is an amazing thing. I think they’re both grounded and level headed people. Let’s hope it’s a nice slow engagement. I’m happy for her, and him. Gorgeous couple too.

  • mymydou

    i think its great! i got engaged at 20…its the best thing that ever happened to me. i think its great that some people my age still believe in marriage. i really wish them the best. the look amazing together and they seem to care a lot for each other.

  • Ella

    I don’t want to say it’s not gonna work because they are too young, because that has worked for some people. I don’t even doubt they love each other very much. But, with Miley though, I feel like she still has too much of a wild-side to settle down right now and have it work for the long haul.

    Liam seems like he is ready to settle down and follow in his sexier brother’s footsteps in starting a young family while Miley seems like she still has some wild oats to sow. Meanwhile Miley still isn’t wearing enough clothes and posing with penis cakes.

  • Beth

    I wonder if it had anything to do with his brother, Chris, having a baby. I know the notion of wanting to marry someone because a sibling had a baby seems ridiculous, but he probably wants the same thing now. I do think she has become more grounded since getting with him, but I have my doubts on the strength of their relationship. I also wonder what Billy really thinks of this.

  • Tracy

    I don’t see it lasting but I wish them the best. I feel a little sorry for Miley I don’t think she is getting the proper attention she needs from her parents.

  • Whitney

    Ugh, this is like Britney all over again.

    • JCZ

      Except not?

      Anyway – they may have a long engagement (here’s hoping). I’d prefer for them to live a bit as an engaged couple knowing they’re committing themselves to each other for the long run and work out whether it’s a good or bad thing.

      At least this isn’t Miley’s first serious relationship – she had her Jonas and went through a cycle of BFs so maybe she really has matured at a younger age and is ready to settle down. Celebrity married couples never really “settle” so she is never going to miss out on that ‘going out’ stuff that most young couples do, which tend to lead to their break-ups. It could work, it may not.

      I wish them all the best, even though I’m not a fan of Miley’s work – I just see no reason in hating on someone else’s relationship when we don’t know them. It’s quite rude and down right, jealousy!

  • Alys

    Cute guy off the market. Oh well…

  • S

    Rushing things? They’ve been together for 3 years.

    • @S — Yes, rushing things … she was 16 when they started dating.

  • Banana

    Whoa!!! I actually think this pair might last longer than Drew’s!!!! Miley has a wild side to her that’s true but girl seems to have been pretty mellow of late? At least I don’t see her news splashing across the websites or tabloids every day, unlike I-dunno-who out there

  • kate

    It’s Hollywood – marriages never last long. i give it 3 months!

  • mimi

    hmm, i think what is working against them is their celebrity rather than their ages. they seem quite solid as a couple and despite their ages, have lived quite adult lives for awhile. they are young but financially secure. ive been with my boyfriend since i was 15 (9.5 years!) and the only reason we haven’t gotten engaged yet is because those pesky things like college, grad school, not enough money for the wedding we want.. they don’t have to worry about those things!

    im not miley’s biggest fan but i think their engagement is sweet. at 19, lindsay lohan was proclaiming she was going to sleep with as many men as possible because Sam from SATC was her role model. call me old fashioned, but i much prefer miley’s path and wish these two luck!

    (and if they marry in aus they can both drink as the drinking age thankfully is 18 not 21!)
