I am going to try to write this post without sounding too cynical, I know I probably won’t succeed, but come on, how am I not suppose to sound cynical when reporting on pregnant 16-year old Jamie Lynn Spears and her recent engagement to her 18-year old boyfriend. PEOPLE.com has reported that Jamie Lynn Spears is sporting a new engagement ring given to her by her 18-year old boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. The world was shocked earlier this year when Jamie Lynn admitted to the world that she was pregnant; how could the prim and proper, younger sister of famous train-wreck, Britney Spears, be so irresponsible and get pregnant in the midst of a flourishing career? Jamie Lynn is double, no wait, triple, irresponsible because not only did she get pregnant at 16, but she did it right in the middle of a flourishing career, and now she is adding to the mess by getting engaged to her teenage boyfriend. Why add to the chaos of a teenage pregnancy by getting married?
