Despite having baby Carly together in their teens and deciding to give her up for adoption, Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have stayed together as a couple. Catelynn credits good communication for their long-lasting relationship — and being soulmates doesn’t hurt either!
Despite the statistics against them remaining together after being teen parents, Catelynn and Tyler seemed to have a pretty successful relationship.
So, what’s the key?
“Communication,” Catelynn tells TV Guide. “We’re just so open with each other and we tell each other how we feel. When Tyler and I get mad we don’t really fight, we sit down and talk about it and say how we’re feeling and listen to each other. And it’s weird, but I always say I found my soulmate at such a young age.”
And the MTV Teen Mom star thinks giving Carly up for adoption actually made them stronger as a couple.
“The adoption made me and Tyler stronger as a couple, which is beating statistics because even people who go through adoption usually break up,” she said. “Tyler told me that when I had Carly and he saw me with her in the hospital room that was the first day he fell in love with me.”
But Catelynn and Tyler’s wedding is not in the near future.
“It’s definitely not. We just want to wait,” Catelynn explained. “We’re too young, we’re only 19. We want to wait until we’re out of college.”
Well, that’s not too far off!
