Courtney Stodden has gone from slightly plasticized to freakishly fake looking in the last few years, and she’s also exhibited some alarming behavior that has experts wondering if there isn’t a deeper psychological issue revolving around her marriage to Doug Hutchison.
Although Courtney has always denied the rumors and claimed that she and Doug got married out of love, she also said that their marriage would be over if she ever gained independence. So, the minute she turns 21, then?
Although it seems like Courtney still loves Doug, a fact she keeps reiterating over and over again, she reveals that she’s conflicted about gaining her own independence. Right now, she admits that it’s extremely difficult to be separated from Doug while starring on Celebrity Big Brother UK, and she also pretty much admits that she depends on him for everything. She says, “He means so much more to me than this freaking house and I don’t want to leave this house feeling so strong and independent that I can’t depend on him anymore.”
I think what she’s trying to say is that because this is all she’s known for so long, she doesn’t want to risk exploring the unknown if she was to break up with Doug and/or not be so dependent on him for everything.
I mean, this is textbook co-dependency that’s taken too far. Both Doug and Courtney, even without the age difference, are a strong example of what an unhealthy relationship looks like, and considering Courtney’s only 19 years old, her brain hasn’t even fully matured yet. As she gets older and faces more pressure from society, I have a feeling she’ll start to backtrack. Heck, it already looks like she’s backtracking and she hasn’t even been married to Doug for five years.
What do you guys think? Will Courtney and Doug end up getting divorced soon? Let us know what you think in the comments.
