‘Teen Mom’ Kailyn Lowry Won’t Be Getting Married in a Church

Remember Kailyn Lowry? She was one of the teens featured in MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom 2″ — and earlier this year, she told her Twitter followers that she was an atheist:

Well, now she’s getting married and her fiance Javi Marroquin happens to be a Catholic.

Problem? Not at all. In news that’s not-really-news-but-what-the-hell-it’s-still-amusing, Lowry says her wedding won’t be a traditional Catholic one:

[Kailyn], who is an open atheist, says that she and Javi won’t be getting married in a church. However, after Javi posted a tweet asking fans to pray for the couple’s dog, many thought [that] Lowry may have changed her mind on her religious views.

I still don’t believe. But it doesn’t matter to either of us that he is catholic,” Kail revealed to fans.

Here’s how the conversation broke down:




No word yet on how they plan to work out their religious differences, but it’s nice to see a couple not letting one person’s religious beliefs take over what’s supposed to be a meaningful day for both of them. Hopefully, they can compromise on which aspects of the wedding they want to keep and discard the rest — including the church setting.
