When your husband has to sign your permission slip to skip gym...

Here is the headline that jumped out at me this morning: Doug Anthony Hutchinson Marries 16-Year-Old Country Singer.  I didn't know who this guy was (apparently he is an actor that appeared on Lost), but I do know that he is a freak.  He is 51 years old and he just married a 16 year old in Vegas (of course).  SO GROSS.

According to him, "We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," he said. 'But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."  35 years age difference is one thing when you are both of legal age, but she is 16!  He just comes off as a sick freak pervert.

I am disgusted, as you can tell.  Here are my follow-up questions to this story:
1.  What was the hurry?  If you are so in love, wait until she is over 18 to get married...at least it doesn't look so perverted that way.
2.  WHERE ARE THIS GIRL'S PARENTS?
   2.1.  Are they friends with her new husband? 
   2.2.  Is that how the happy couple met?  At her parent's house?
   2.3   Do they realize that the photo posted of her makes her look like a porn star?
   2.4   Were they paid to let her marry him?
   2.5.  Are they INSANE?  Answer: Yes.

I am totally creeped out by this entire thing.  I can't believe he announced it on his website.  I can only hope it is a publicity stunt to bolster both of their careers and they are not actually married and have not been doing inappropriate things together.  Fingers crossed.
