Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer both had their fair share of parenting experience before they even turned 20. Both teenage parents, these two didn’t meet until each of their children were out of diapers and their romantic relationships with their co-parents were in the past. Although they were a well-liked couple during their Teen Mom debut, they have had their fair share of scandals and criticism from fans. That hasn’t stopped them from making their relationship official… for the second time.
Ryan and Mackenzie officially got married during the last season of Teen Mom OG, but there was something wrong about their wedding: the groom was so high he could hardly keep his eyes open. Now that they’re getting their re-do, fans expected Ryan to show up totally sober after spending weeks in rehab. However, his recent behavior at his wedding do-over makes it clear that old habits die hard. It even has fans worried about a potential relapse.
Ryan and Mackenzie have had a rocky relationship, but that hasn’t stopped them from talking down the aisle… twice. Even though the new Edwards couple insulted Maci and Taylor with their wedding invitation, the McKinneys still made an appearance at the wedding. What didn’t make an appearance was Ryan’s sobriety.
This sneak peek of next week’s episode has all the makings of an adorable wedding special. Mackenzie looks beautiful in her gown, and has to scurry out of sight so Ryan doesn’t see her before their big moment. Maci and Taylor look polished as ever, and get to reunite with the ever-dapper Bentley. However, there are also some moments that aren’t so sweet.
In the clip, Ryan is shown throwing back what appears to be a beer. As if that weren’t a hint enough that he was drinking before his wedding, in another clip he can be heard saying, “ I want to go get a shot real quick!”
Considering Ryan’s long-running battle with drug addiction, many fans were surprised to see him so openly drinking alcohol. This means that Ryan was inebriated for both of his weddings to Mackenzie.
But that’s not the only thing that fans saw as a red flag in the clip…
In another clip, Ryan’s friend asks him if he has prepared vows as they get ready to walk down the aisle. Ryan replies, “No! Wing it!”
His groomsman offers him advice to keep it simple, telling Ryan to say, “I love you. I’m here for you.”
Ryan replies, “I don’t know if I can make that promise!”
Ryan has been accused of using Tinder to cheat on his wife Mackenzie on multiple occasions, painting this exchange as even more questionable than it would have been before the reveal. In fact this clip spelled doom for the couple in the eyes of many Teen Mom fans.
