What a difference eighteen months makes. After all the bitter name calling, accusations, nude photo shoots, more name calling and putting their lives out there for the world to see and read about, the two young people at the center of Sara Palin’s life have decided, once again, to venture down the aisle.
Their baby is now 18 months ago, a beautiful little boy with blond hair. The parents, Bristol and Levi, are a nice looking couple. But we’ve been down this road before. They got engaged when Bristol was pregnant a few years ago. They were “in love” and the relationship ended shortly after the baby was born.
Levi has made no bones about how he feels about Sara Palin (who?) and he even made comments as to how she did a lousy job as Governor of Alaska. There was so much mud slinging and name calling back and forth, so how do people put that aside for the family?
To top it all off, Bristol and Levi didn’t tell their parents that they got back together and became engaged two weeks ago. They were in the middle of a custody battle, they met to discuss matters and love bloomed, or re-bloomed I should say.
As soon as they parted ways that day he sent her a message telling her he loved her and missed her. Bingo, they are back together. She is sporting an engagement ring. So, the next logical step would have been, “Hi Mom and Dad, guess what?” Not, these two you are taking the high road. They went to US Magazine and told their story. I guess that’s more the coward’s way out, I probably would have gone that route it if it was me and the guy my parents hate.
The Palins issued a statement, not so much welcoming him into the family (again) but staying that Bristol has grown up in the last 18 months. Bristol has also commented that, no, she is not pregnant again and she and Levi are living apart until after the wedding.
I think if Bristol and Levi are truly in love and are going into this for the right reasons, then pat them on the back and say ‘congratulations’. For the sake of that little boy I hope they are thinking of him first and foremost.
With their track record I wouldn’t be surprised if this is just the beginning of another ending to their relationship. Time will tell. Is this another political ploy? Is this true love? Does Bristol Palin truly love Levi Johnston? Does Levi Johnston truly love Bristol Palin? How will the Palins deal with Levi as their son-in-law? Can this marriage last? I’m sure the Palin family will keep us all well informed to the progress, or lack of progress, in this new venture.
