Things are looking up for Ryan Edwards‘ sobriety since entering rehab! Mackenzie Standifer recently posted a selfie on Instagram which prompted fans to question whether she and Ryan are still together. One fan went as far as to ask the Teen Mom OG star if she had “finally” ditched Ryan. The couple has kept a noticeably low profile since the finale of the reality show aired a month ago but Mackenzie wants everyone to know that they did not break up and are still happily married.
“Uhhh no,” Mackenzie wrote in response to the person who asked her if she broke up with Ryan. “When you get a flat tire do you ditch your car? No. When your house is dirty do you walk away? No. It’s no different with the person you love. Just because you walk through rough waters does not mean you give up. It means you have enough self esteem to keep going, put your head up and fight harder.”
Fans seem to be a little unsure about whether the couple will be able to make it work. One wrote, “I’m so tired of the support for her. She chose this! She chose to let this be in her life and the life of her child. She chose to let herself be distracted by a guy knee deep in addiction. Why would women support her doing that?” While others are rallying behind the star and showing her support, “I am so proud of you and Ryan! Very well said. Never give up. Your true fans have your back. I’m one of them.”
It looks like Ryan has been able to stay sober and has his drug addiction under control. Mackenzie even revealed that they’re planning to have a big wedding with all their friends and family. “We have had a huge wedding planned and in the books with our whole family and boys since we got engaged,” Mackenzie wrote. Initially, she had said that she and Ryan planned to get married in November 2017, in the church where Ryan’s parents, Jen and Larry Edwards, tied the knot. We wonder if that’s still the plan. Either way, we’re so happy Ryan and Mackenzie are doing well!
