Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner are engaged, he proposed with a pear-shaped diamond

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas spotted having Lunch at Alfred's Cafe

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been dating for about a year. I suspect that they really are at the one-year mark of their relationship, because we started hearing about them around November 2016. They spent New Year’s together in Miami and New York, and they’ve been inseparable for months. She’s the cool girlfriend at his gigs. They adopted a dog together. They show up on each other Instagrams. It’s all very cute and “young love.” She’s 21 years old, and will turn 22 next February. He turned 28 in August. Would you marry a 28 year old when you were 21? It would have depended on the 28 year old. I would not marry Joe Jonas at any point in time though. But I’m not Sophie Turner and I’m not love-drunk on being the Cool Girlfriend With the Band. Yes, ladies and gents, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are engaged! Joe posted this Instagram on Sunday:

She said yes.

Great manicure. The pear-shaped diamond is… not my taste, but I like that he spent some money on it. That’s a nice-sized ring, and it actually suits her, I think. It looks good on her hand, and I could see Sophie digging a pear-shaped diamond rather than a princess-cut diamond or something a bit more typical. Sophie posted the same photo on her IG with the words “I said yes.” People Mag confirmed the news:

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are engaged, and the singer’s family couldn’t be more welcoming to their new addition. “Everybody’s very, very happy for them and their family and friends are all thrilled. Everyone loves them together,” a source tells PEOPLE of the exciting news.

Adds the insider, “She’s young but is beyond her years and is crazy, crazy mature. He’s never been like this with a girl.”

“He was such a dater before her but their relationship was much different from the start. She was just the one for him.”

[From People]

“He was such a dater before her”…? I’ve never heard it described that way. Like, he’s a DATER. He goes on lots of dates. I think Sophie is “crazy mature” as well, and yet… I’m still not into this. What are your thoughts? Feelings? I mean, I think she’s too young to get married in general, and too young to marry Joe Jonas specifically. But an engagement isn’t marriage and from what I’ve seen on The Kids These Days, they could just be engaged for a while and not really plan for the wedding. Even though I think people should enjoy their youth and make mistakes and have fun, I’m kind of grumpy bitch to the point where I’m like “stop being so love drunk, you’re making a huge mistake!!” But they’re not listening to me, so I’m just shouting into the void. Have fun, you crazy kids.

    She is VERY young. But, congrats.

  2. hallie says:

    i think the ring is stunning and wearable. best i’ve seen on a celeb finger in a long while.

  3. Hmmnottoday says:

    I got married at 19, no regrets. I think “too young” is over generalized. You’re not too young to commit to something, you’re too immature and selfish to give up partying and other things.

    • ell says:

      being single or not getting married has very little to do with partying though. i certainly never partied much as an introvert, and yet personally i’m happy i took things slowly when it comes to relationships.

    • kay says:

      I got married at 22. 9 years later, no regrets, but wanting to be single and young isn’t selfish. It’s healthy to put yourself first for a while, because taking care of others, having a spouse and maybe children is a BIG responsibility.

      And like, maybe people have other reasons? Haven’t met the right person, want to focus on their studies, their career? Or maybe they just want to party all night and sleep all day. That’s ok, too.

    • LadyMTL says:

      Several of my friends got married young (e.g. under 23-24) and with one exception they’re all divorced now. My brother got engaged quite young as well, and they broke up less than a year later, without ever having gotten past the planning stage of the wedding. AFAIK the breakups didn’t have to do with partying or selfishness or whatnot, they just realized later that getting engaged / married to that specific person hadn’t been the right thing to do. One of those friends is actually now in a long-term, very happy relationship, she has two daughters and so on…but that happened 10 years after the divorce.

      Of course I’m not saying that it never works out, and a bit congrats to those of you who have gotten hitched young and are still happy and in love. :) Everyone’s story is different, after all.

    • starkiller says:

      It’s not so much the “too young” bit that bothers me, it’s the fact that they’ve evidently only been dating a year. That isn’t nearly long enough to truly know someone, let alone decide you want to marry them.

    • Erinn says:

      One of my best friends got married at 21 I believe… to someone about 7 years older. They’re still going strong, seem incredibly happy – but in a normal, realistic way. It’s not all fluffy bs talk designed to APPEAR happy – there’s plenty of speed bumps that come along with life, but they work through them very well. They were a great match, and have two beautiful kids together. My friend was always very mature – very interested in settling down, and the older half had some crappy relationships prior, and wanted to commit to the person who made them incredibly happy. I see no issues with it – though when they got engaged I was a bit surprised in a way.

      My husband and I started dating in 9th grade, and haven’t been apart since. We were married at 24. We can’t imagine life without each other, and even on the days where we drive each other bonkers, we adore one another, and really wouldn’t have it any other way.

      It really just depends on the two people. Some people don’t WANT to date a bunch before settling down, while other people do. Some people ARE selfish and can’t put another person at a level of importance in their life that marriage needs. Some people just want to have a wild youth and enjoy being single – some people want to have a wild youth and will do so with a partner. It’s all about being at the right stage of life, and having your interests and values line up in a way that works. Someone could get married at 19 and be wildly in love their whole life, while someone could get married at 40 and divorced in 6 months. Age and experiences matter a lot less than whether you both want the same things.

    • Veronica says:

      We got married young too, I was 24 and my husband was almost 22. 10 years later we are still happily married with 2 small daughters. We knew what we wanted and we thought “why wait” when we knew it was going to happen eventually. We did take our time having kids though as our first daughter was born about 6.5 years after we married and out baby was born this past January. While we knew we wanted to get married we sure as heck knew we weren’t ready for kids.

      Being young doesn’t mean you don’t know what you want. Given their careers, they’ve got bigger obstacles then their age when it comes to a long marriage.

  4. YeahRight says:

    Is this a mutual lavender marriage?

  5. Whoopsy Daisy says:

    21 is super young for marriage. And neither one of them seems mature.

  6. third ginger says:

    21 seems very young in 2017. In other eras, not so much. However, there are always exceptions. I hope it works out.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Thank you for leaving a little window open for exceptions to the rule. Yes 21 years old seems very young but some people are mature enough to manage. He is 28 years old and he seems to be yearning for a stable married life. Let’s give them a chance shall we.

  7. Nicole says:

    Ring is beautiful and they’ve kept their relationship pretty low key which tells me it’s not strictly business.
    I think she’s too young (21 yr old me could barely take care of herself let alone someone else) but a year engagement could straighten things out. Also take into account that she’s been working since she was 14 she’s probably more mature than most.

  8. Natalie S says:

    Divorce is expensive. What’s wrong with just dating?

    Getting engaged after only one year makes me think of that Aziz Ansari joke about the sweater. If they were in their 30s, then maybe because at that point you know who you are, but a 21 year old?

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I weirdly read the title as ‘enraged’ rather than ‘engaged’ so I assumed the pear shape set her off. Ha.

  10. Talie says:

    Well, the ring is beautiful…so if nothing else, she got a nice piece of jewelry.

  11. ell says:

    i also wouldn’t marry him at any age or in any timeline, and i do think she’s too young to marry (cue all the comments on how they married at 21 and everything was amazing, which i’m sure it can happen, but still). most 21 yo have it all to come in every sense; dating, in terms of job, life experience. i think it’s important to try adult life by yourself before settling down. i’m 28 now, and i’m happy i didn’t truly commit and cohabit with someone until i was 25.

  12. Megan says:

    They are both too young and have not been together that long.

  13. Mermaid says:

    Saw on Twitter: “Lady Winterfell and a guy from a Disney band got engaged today!” But I wish them the best.

  14. Charlie says:

    There’s still so much you don’t know about yourself at that age! I should probably bite my tongue, I got married at 21 – one month out of Uni. But I was still in high school when we met, so we’d already spent years together. I really hope they take at least another year, you know?

  15. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    I know there will be lots of people who say, “oh, I got married at 20, and we’ve been married for 40 years and raised a beautiful family,” BUT they are young and rich. There is no need to get married right now. Be together, be happy, travel all over the world, and let this relationship continue to grow.

    FWIW-I was engaged to my husband within 90 days and got married almost a year to the day after meeting him. I know it can hit light a bolt of lightening. But FFS-21 is YOUNG, and HW marriages rarely last no matter the age-adding the change that is still happening at a rapid pace for Sophie, and this feels like a disaster.
    That all said, I love her and the ring is gorgeous.

  16. Soprana says:

    Regardless of age, there has always been a shifty vibe about him, specifically the way he treats his exes. The Taylor Swift thing is one thing (they were teens) but his attitude towards Gigi Hadid is rather off putting: http://insidejersey.com/2016/07/29/did-joe-jonas-throw-shade-gigi-hadid-wwhl/

  17. Mia4s says:

    Awww, well I’m sure this will be the happiest 12-14 months of their lives so far. 😏

  18. Beth says:

    At 21, I wasn’t sure about everything in my life and didn’t want to do something as serious as marriage. Too many people I personally know, who were married that young, end up divorcing within a couple of years. Definitely wouldn’t get married after only knowing him 1 year. What’s the rush? I think it is a pretty ring though

  19. ArchieGoodwin says:

    Snark alert, read at own risk.

    She’s a horrible actress. She got lucky with GOT, and with X men (based off her fame level from GOT, not talent) so like, sure. I can see her thinking she landed something great here. As for him, he’s so boring to me, who cares if he gets married? He’s thinking she’s hot and famous enough.
    This won’t end well, and I could care less.

  20. Gippy says:

    Love the ring!! It’s a good quality to you can tell how it sparkles, the clarity is great on this one. Eh, she is a little young but with the year engagement or so so probably be 24 before they actually get married.

  21. Cleatta says:

    I’ll be surprised if they make it down the aisle. This seems like more of a “engaged for a period then break up after the glow wears off” type of thing especially when you consider they’ve been apart for a lot of their short relationship due to work.

  22. Penfold says:

    If they do go through with the wedding, I’ll bet he’ll want a kid right away. Hope she’s ready to be a young mom!

    Good luck to them! This might be one of those marriages that work.

    ( I don’t think it will work out, but that’s just the pessimist in me talking)

    • Nancy says:

      Yep, I thought the same thing. I’d bet on Kit and Rose’s marriage to last. They seem so much more grounded. This girl has so much fame and money because of GoT, what could she do to get a little excitement….ok, get married and go to Disney World!!! Only time will tell, but she seems so full of herself and Joe has been through a lot girls to get to “the one.” Good luck though, the world needs another curly black haired Jonas heart throb for the future bored Hollywood starlets! Arya, come and get your sister!!!!

  23. QueenB says:

    Girl, you are 21, you are supposed to have your ho phase.

  24. Squiggisbig says:

    Joe Jonas never really seems to have any chemistry with anyone he has dated including Sophie.

    I like the ring though.

  25. LittlefishMom says:

    If they are happy….judge no one. Congratulations to them.

  26. Wren33 says:

    I honestly think she seems a bit immature, or at least, not mature beyond her age. If I were her mother I wouldn’t be psyched, but with all the news going on, all I can say is “Go for it young love!” It might be a horrible mistake, but no one is (I presume) getting assaulted.

  27. Lindy says:

    I wish her the best but thinking about my own mistake getting engaged at 21 and married at 22 (and painfully divorced 12 long years later with a child), I really hope she takes more time.

  28. perplexed says:

    They both have money (I think.) That probably helps a marriage work out somewhat better at a young age.

    A lot of marital problems these days seem to have to do with financial security (or lack of it).

  29. khymera says:

    He’s not sexy to me, also why does he insist on having that mustache.

  30. Margo S. says:

    I was 18 when I met my husband to be. He was 25. We both didn’t expect to find “the one” at that stage in our lives, but we did. We are still together 13 years later ;) with 3 kids too! Haha.

  31. minx says:

    Isn’t he gay? Or is that another Jonas? I never follwed them

  32. Bettyrose says:

    She’s way too young but celebs marry early & often. I don’t get Joe Jonas tho. Isn’t he in some kind of christian boy band. Don’t slam me. I genuinely don’t know who he is and I didn’t bother to Google. Sansa’s too good for him either way.

    • Erica_V says:

      He is Jonas Brother and yes they made a big deal out of their “purity rings” and waiting for marriage shtick but in reality that was all BS marketing. I don’t know if they still make music as a group but right now he’s part of that a group call DNCE.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Yeah, that’s what I’m remembering. I find it so gross when adults try to dictate sexuality to adolescents, but I guess that’s not his fault. If he’s not preaching purity to preteens, I guess he’s fine by me. Not good enough for her, but I can totally see why he wants to lock that down while she’s still young and naive enough to think this can work. Her career is on fire. He’ll get jealous. She’ll get restless. Yaaawn. Kids gotta learn for themselves, I guess.

  33. Kate says:

    I wanted her to end up in a torrid love affair with Aidan Gillen.
    Sansa x Baelish 5EVA!

  34. Radley says:

    I have a feeling this engagement won’t result in marriage. Color me cynical.

  35. crazydaisy says:

    Whatever she sees in him, I’m missing it.

    Seems like a dumb move, but the ring is really pretty! I was expecting to hate it (generally not a pear-shaped fan) but it’s a gorgeous ring and looks great on her ridiculously young hand.

  36. Lucy says:

    Honestly? I’m into this. They seem really into each other, him into her especially. Who knows when the wedding will happen. Congrats to them!!

    • Llamas says:

      I agree actually. I saw some photos of them interacting and they’re pretty cute together. I hope it works out. That ring is gorgeous and it looks great on her. It’s a nice photo photography-wise.

      Her manicure makes me want to break out my pink-nude nail polish haha

  37. ALF-M says:

    IMO Sophie can do better than Joe Jonas. Never been a fan of his band with his brothers, solo career and DNCE. If she was gonna get engaged any of them, Nick seems the hottest and most talented lol. I think if anything, she should make it a looooong engagement, don’t rush!

  38. Trump Hater says:

    She’s still very young, very beautiful and once she’s done the Sansa Stark role, she should have a long career ahead of her. I don’t know, she’s an actress with her star on the rise, while Joe Jonas is a former boy bander and a washout really. I’ll be surprised if they actually marry.

  39. Jess says:

    Hmm, pregnant? Lol, she’s definitely young and it seems a little soon, they’ve barely been together one year. Either way, congrats to them! They seem like a sweet couple.

  40. babykitten says:

    The two pictures seem perfectly orchestrated to hide the fact that she’s at least two inches taller than him.

  41. Dani says:

    All I have to say is that their dog is cute and her ring is tastefully done. Hoping for a LOOOOONG engagement. Best wishes to them

  42. Erica_V says:

    The nice: Her ring is really beautiful!

    The B*tchy: She better get it in writing that she can keep it when they break up in a year or so.

  43. thaliasghost says:

    This is dangerous. They are both ‘hot’ right now career wise. But that will change. Most likely one of them won’t be able to hold up that level of fame which will eventually break them up.

  44. Nibbi says:

    Too young. Too young. Too young. Too young.

    Hollywood kids always want to make it official so quick. I’m sure there are all sorts of psychological analyses to be done on that.

    Don’t care in the slightest about him- but she is TOO. YOUNG.
    I feel like it is folly for chicks to “get serious” with a dude when they’re that young. I’m starting to think women need & deserve more time & room to grow & know themselves & BE themselves before turning into “somebody’s wife,” with all of the b@ù%** that inevitably entails .
    yeah, I’m cynical & jaded, but I’m sick of women’s growth & development being considered “secondary” or “just naturally done sooner.” Sick of women getting the short end of the stick in general. Be free, women. Be selfish, even. Put your needs first, THEN decide who you want to tie yourself down to, IF you really want to, and take yer damn time… It sucks to clean up when it all goes wrong.

    Anyway, she’s free & surely madly in love. sigh.

  45. HoustonGrl says:

    Had I gotten married at that age, it would have been a disaster. But my parents got married at 21 and they’re still together 40 years later! You never know, it’s always a gamble. They are pretty cute together.

  46. Squirrelgirl says:

    With all the awful stuff in the news this is actually happy and I’m all for it. Good luck to the love birds!

  47. Valiantly Varnished says:

    The first things I thought when I saw this on Twitter was that: 1. She is waaay too young to be getting married and 2. I highly doubt they will make it to the altar. She does strike me as mature but mature or not she’s still only 21. I have a feeling this is her first REAL relationship.

  48. reverie says:

    Ewww. Gross. Who wants to be married at 21? And to that guy? Blarg.

  49. Basic Bitch says:

    His hands creep me out – that is all

  50. Kath says:

    She’s beautiful, has a great role on GoT, has money and options and her whole life ahead of her. Why get married at 21 to Joe Jonas, of all people??

    Yes, I’m a grumpy old beyotch. I’ll show myself out.

  51. serena says:

    Those porn mustache though..
