‘Teen Mom’ Weddings: By the Numbers

There’s no shortage of weddings when you’re dealing with the ‘Teen Mom’ stars…

Note: This post has been updated as of September 2018!

There has been no shortage of Teen Mom weddings over the past 12 months. Cast members from both Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 have been making their way down the aisle at a high rate, so it seemed like an appropriate time for The Ashley to take a closer look at all the ‘Teen Mom’ weddings!

(To simplify things, The Ashley is only including the weddings of ‘Teen Mom OG’ and ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast members.)

Let’s take a look at the ‘Teen Mom’ nuptials….by the numbers!

0       Number of times Farrah Abraham has been married or engaged

  1. Leah look gorgeous at her first wedding. Too bad it was probably just the “after glow” from hooking up with Robbie the night before!

  2. The rate at which some cast members move from engagement to marriage here is ridicilous. I hope Leah learned from her mistakes and will date for quite some time before marrying for the third time (if she ever wants to again).

    1. 226 Hours. That’s 9.4 days total between Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2.
      If you include Teen Mom 3, it’s 239 hours which comes out to about 10 days.
      And if you wanna go the extra mile, and include 16 and Pregnant, that’s 304 hours (give or take), which is 12.6 days total.

      Final Answer: Just about two weeks of your life since 2009.

        OMG what a sad reality! I can’t believe I’ve wasted so much of my time watching this garbage and yet I just can’t stop! I have as of lately though not been watching as much but I do catch up on reruns or on demand though- not always but I do try. Sadly!!!

        1. I have actually stopped watching the show completely at this point, and only read The Ashley’s recaps! (I do still watch 16 & Pregnant reruns from time to time online)

    1. I also don’t consider what Jeremy was wearing as a tux it was a white linen shirt and khakis if I remember correctly.

    1. I’m surprised that hideous see-through monstrosity was three grand! But it is more classier, so I guess I shouldn’t complain. ?

    1. Speaking of Ryan & Mackenzie….are they still getting divorced? I haven’t heard much on them since the whole “Food City” incident.

      1. Oh no! They were so perfect together! Way to ruin my night. Mackenzie should have bolted a long time ago…so I give it another couple months for it to sink into her head that she can’t change him.

      2. No all she does since then is post “inspirational” quotes on her IG pertaining to “strong women” and such. Honey, your cracked our husband was hooking up behind your back and you refused to leave him. You’re not a strong woman
