Tyler Baltierra Defends Himself For Not Marrying Catelynn Before Trying to Have a Baby

Tyler Baltierra Teen Mom

‘Teen Mom’ couple Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra recently announced that they are ready and trying to have another baby, five years after placing their daughter Carly for adoption. While Catelynn and Tyler were the only couple from the show who stayed together after having a baby… Tyler still isn’t willing to commit to marriage.

I’m not saying that you can’t have a baby unless you are married… but it seems to be important to Catelynn that they get married. (Judging from what we saw on ‘Couples Therapy,’ and the MTV special ‘Being Catelynn.’) So why would Tyler want to have a baby but still not get married? Clearly it means a lot to Catelynn but she’s just happy to have Tyler in her life so it’s not surprising that she’s willing skip the whole getting married thing. In his own defense he posted to Twitter:  “I really would like to know how marriage makes good kids? Last I checked, that was the parents job #YouPeopleAreWhack #WhoCares? AND btw if you didn’t already know. Me & Cate already had a baby & were still not married! NOW You guys decide to comment on it #ALil2Late

Catelynn has also taken to Twitter with her excitement about trying to have a baby, “I am an adult and I can tell when I’m ready and [I don’t care] what ANYONE says I’m gonna do me! We ARE READY for a baby

What do you think? For some marriage isn’t important but for others it really is… and it seems like Catelynn is one of those people. Do you think Catelynn and Tyler will be together forever, regardless of marriage?


  1. (Clearly) you don’t have to be married to have kids, but, it’s a matter of being ready for the big of a commitment. If you know you aren’t ready to be married, then what makes you ready to have a child? Last I checked, that’s also a rather large commitment. They will be good parents no matter what, but admitting you aren’t ready for that level of commitment, should tell you something.

  2. I think Tyler sees marriage as a stamp of death on a relationship. He hasn’t really seen a good marriage from what I’ve seen. He loves her and clearly wants to be with her forever, he just seems like he doesn’t want to be married.

  3. Make an honest woman out of Catelynn….it’s obvious you two have the staying power – show those that have let you down, how to make the most of ‘the ultimate commitment.” Why not? THEN bring a child into that married relationship – one in which you said your vows to God. Enough said……

  4. Some people don’t feel the need to be married.. It’s not a fear of commitment, he is obviously committed to her, but marriage isn’t a necessary step in life and love! And it doesn’t affect parenting skills.

  5. I don’t agree that they need to be married before having a baby. Marriage is just a piece of paper. They will make great parents married or not.

    • Totally agree… they did what was best the first time and now it’s there turn to be Happy and raise this baby.. and I agree it is a piece of paper and they have a better relationship than most married couples so I say yay them and congrats

    • If it’s just a piece of paper why doesn’t he just do it for her then? It’s obvious she wants to be married to him. And I hate the statement it’s just a piece of paper usually the only people who say that are the ones who can’t get their man to commit to marriage.

  6. Seriously, just a piece of paper? Why not just sign that piece of paper and show your baby the commitment between you and their mom? I had a baby as an unwed teen and as a wed adult, anyone who thinks being married and not being married doesn’t make a difference, is not ready to have kids.

    • I am 26 years old with a 4 year old and a 7 month old. Their father and i have been together since i was 14. We plan on getting married eventually and we have been engaged 2 years but we raise our children just fine without being married and have a better relationship than most married couples i know.

  7. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 9 years and we jave two little boys and were not married and neither of ud want to get married and my children are hapoy and healthy and well taken care of and they didnt get that way cuz i was married thier that way cuz me and thiet dad love them and csre for them!!!!

  8. 23 years and 3 children raised. With NO piece of paper mind you. You two need to live your life in a way that the two of you can live with and appreciate because at the end of the day it is the two of you that is in the relationship and no one else. Just remember to be true to one another and ya’ll will be fine. You have done good working things out this far, I think you have a pretty good handle on it. Congrats by the way on the new addition to the family.

  10. It’s actually a great and useful piece of information. I am glad that
    you shared this useful information with us. Please keep us informed like this.
    Thank you for sharing.

  11. for me it’s not the problem of HAVING to be married. You don’t have to be married to raise children. My problem is she obviously wants to be married and even in the sneak peek of the new teen mom season she brings it up again and he shuts it down. Why is he willing and ready to make her the mother of his child again but not willing to make her his wife?
