Here’s a story about everyone’s favorite statutory rapist and his child bride that brings home the situation quite succinctly. While filming “Couples Therapy” together, Doug Hutchison, 52, and his wife Courtney Stodden, now 18, weren’t allowed to spend the night together because Courtney was only 17 at the time and child labor laws forbade it. You know, marriage laws in every state really need to catch up with the laws protecting children in the workplace. This situation could have been avoided if Courtney’s parents weren’t allowed to sign their daughter away to a man who was essentially their peer when she was only 16 years old. You have to be 21 to drink in this country, you would think that you would need to be at least 18 to get married. Hey maybe something positive will come out of this unholy union. Here’s more, thanks to Radar:
On the latest episode of Couples Therapy the Teen Bride and her 51-year-old husband are actually not spending the night together, unlike the rest of the couples!
Because Courtney was only 17 when the reality show filmed, she wasn’t allowed to spend the night at the home after a long day of filming due to child labor laws, so she left Doug alone in the house, which was the first time since their 2011 marriage that they spent the night apart.
Courtney and Doug had their first meeting with the counselor who asked the couple how they met and began their relationship.
The Teen Bride explained that they met through a mutual friend and their relationship blossomed from there.
“Our exchange at some point in time evolved into more personal questions and slowly, but surely we fell in love with one another,” Doug explained.
Dr. Jenn asks why, since Courtney was legally a child, they didn’t wait until she was 21 to get together.
“I wasn’t thinking responsibly,” Doug said. “To be fair, I truly wasn’t thinking responsibly. I was thinking with my heart.”
Dr. Jenn asked why they didn’t just date and if they got married just because they wanted to have sex.
“I won’t lie to you it wasn’t the farthest thing from my mind because she is this beautiful sexy woman, but it wasn’t the prevalent thing on my mind,” Doug confessed.
“It wasn’t primary motivation, I found true love.”
Courtney agreed with her husband. “I didn’t want to wait either, I pushed it because I wanted to be with you.
“Someone that looks like me physically… I had so many men, write me, follow me home, I knew that I wanted to wait ‘til I found that one person that I felt safe with.”
Dr. Jenn then questioned Courtney’s hyper-sexual way of dressing, and asked her if she had ever been sexually abused.
“No I have not been sexually molested, touched in any way. I just feel more comfortable that way,” she asserted.
Courtney said she likes wearing skimpy clothing, telling Dr. Jenn: “I have a good body I’m enjoying my youth now.”
We’ve heard all this crap from Courtney and Doug before about how it’s “true love” and evolved over time while they were sending each other e-mails. How inane and oversexed do you think their online conversations were? This is the girl who tweets things like “Not wearing panties today! Who else is celebrating #NoPantyDay ?” and posts photos like the ones below. (With her new face on display. I haven’t seen her tweet any photos of Doug.) Any self respecting guy over 16 would have run for the hills when this came at them, but not Doug. It was “love” for Doug and he thought with his “heart.” He’s such a creepy predatory bastard.
Listen to how Doug explains how he fell in love with Courtney in this scene from Couple’s Therapy. He’s so gross. She is too, but she’s 17 years old here. Check out her facial expressions at around 2:00 in. Then Doug feels her knee and I actually went “Ugh!” out loud. I’m glad she wasn’t sexually abused, according to her, but something happened to her in order to have her turn out like this. I blame her parents.
