Avril Lavigne Engaged To Sum One

June 29th, 2005 // 32 Comments

I honestly don’t understand why these young kids are getting married. Twenty. No. Enjoy your youth, live a little, don’t waste it on what is going to end up in divorce.

Over the weekend, Sum 41frontman Deryck Whibley asked for tie- and tank-top-sporting Canadian rock chick Avril Lavigne’s hand in marriage, and the 20-year-old Avril accepted, according to Us Weekly.

Lavigne and Whibley started dating over a year ago, and have been friends for several years, the magazine reports. Both musicians call the same Canadian province — Ontario — home, but reportedly moved into a Los Angeles house they’d purchased together last year.

    c’mon….just because you get married young doesn’t mean you stop living….or don’t get to enjoy your life any longer…..and not all marriages end in divorce….cut the kids a break…even if they don’t agree with your “ideology”

  2. Oh come on. Who *doesn’t* believe this marriage is headed straight to divorce? Believe it or not, I think that the Paris/Paris marriage will last longer than this one.

    I don’t know if something is wrong with me or what, but I always see a little bit of Tonya Harding when I look at Avril Lavigne! haha

    Dude, its totally not gonna last.

    A)They are rockstars
    B)they are 20
    C) they live in Hollywood.

    Marriages are essentially just exclusive dating for a couple of years there.

    I may kick myself for saying this later, but here’s why it may last and why I’m pulling for them:

    1) they’ve been dating for over a year (a far cry from most celebrity relationships turned whirlwind marriages)

    2) they’ve been friends for years

    3) they have a common background

    4) they live in the same place and have for quite some time

    All of these things make marriages in general a little more smooth and “real”, so perhaps the kids have a chance. Then again, perhaps I’m a hopeless romantic.

    What’s up with that Hohan hair?

  7. Steve

    You’ve got to Canadian and have grown up in this area to know where these two are from. Beleive it or not, this one will probably last.

  8. lala

    what goes around comes around:
    this guy dated paris for a while too.
    and as for the name ADSUM??? SUMVRIL??

  9. LALA

    Mariana’s right her hair looks really hillary duff. Whats up with advril? She’s going hollywood all of a sudden, but when she barely came out, SHE SWORE TOOTH AND NAIL she wasn’t about that, she wasn’t about brittney, and hollywood, that she was totally, “real” totally punkrawk. (Yeah right.) now she’s dying her hair the same color.
    figures.
    I actually used to have faith in her, like she would be different and break the mold. How idiotic.

  10. Doppler

    I figured it out. She’s a spoiled brat, she’s blonde, she’s using sex to sell, she’s dating a ho’s ex-bf……

    SHE IS BECOMING PARIS HILTON!

  11. Doppler

    I figured it out. She’s a spoiled brat, she’s blonde, she’s using sex to sell, she’s carrying around LV bags, she’s dating a ho’s ex-bf……

    SHE IS BECOMING PARIS HILTON!

  12. Maria

    Oh no, please! Not yet another Paris Hilton! One is already too much! And we already have Brit and Hillary Duff carrying around rat dogs, and Lindsay Lohan dyeing her hair…when wil it end?!?

  13. ma

    I agree with you C-for celebrities marriage is just like exclusive dating. I know that SOME people make it but a very few. Look at Jennifer and Brad, they were supposedly the ones who lasted for soooo long and of course it fell apart. It must be hard to keep a relationship going when every person is more beautiful and rich than the next. Dream all you want but inevitably this marriage will fail, maybe it will be five years from now but just like every hollywood relationship, it is inevitable. They aren’t immune just because they are canadian.

  14. Emily

    On much music it showed Derick touching Avril’s chest. *cough* Remember when Avril used to write songs about how she DIDN’T want boys touching her? Quote from “Get Over It”: “Then I found you’re hand all over me and that was out of bounds. You filthy rotten hound…” So why does she want Derek touching her you ask? Well I do not know the question to that. Why is Avril now wearing all these “sexy” clothes in her photoshoots? She used to not want to wear anything they gave her so she just wore was she was wearing in the first place. Now shes wearing those clothes because of her “new look”. Right… someones turning into Christina Aguilera.

  15. Cynthia

    In my opinion, I think that their marriage will last. Let’s face the facts shall we?
    1. Friends for 7 years.
    2. Both from CANADA.
    3. Dating over a year
    4. Live together
    I know they won’t get a divorce because, they cannot get bored of each other. They’re both crazy young ones, who like to have fun. If they were to stop and get a divorce, it would be unlikely just because they live together, and wouldn’t they already gotten sick of each other?

  16. melo

    come on this marriage is going to last not just because they are both canadians they have known eachother for ever and lived together for a long time before they even got engaged so stop saying they wont cus they willl!!!!

  17. Hodgie

    I think it’ll last longer than most in hollywood, but i cant stand this girl anymore… she was so much better when she first cam out making fun of all the dirty hoes in the business, and now shes one of them! look at her, her hair her makeup her cute little bag that matches her outfit! what is she thinking, what a sellout!!! Dont get me wrong i think she looks good, its just not her…

  18. sexxy

    i think they’ll last. c’mon guyz, have faith in’em! i think it’ll b hard for’em tho cuz they’re in hollywood, must b hard to stay wit someone datz sexy in more dan yur own eyez =S

  19. Helpless Romantic

    They will for sure last. because I know Avril.. She’s my best friend even though we don’t see each other all that often anymore.. But when I do see her.. all we talk about is her and Derek, she is soooo deeply in love!<3 :).. So quite saying shit about how they’re not going to last. Cause I know they will!!

  20. Emily the yogourt girl

    Awwww!Amore c’est dans air or whatever it is in french.I forget.I think this is gonna be the cutest marriage ever because they’ve known each other for a long long …long time and helloooo!They’re into the same things.And if this fact doesn’t make them perfect for love I don’t know what does :Avril tried to pull down Deryck’s pants in the L.A. bar Lit.Then everyone got drunk and Deryck spit at an onlooker.I love our dear country Canada.

    Ps.Why does everyone care that Avril got her hair dyed?And why are some ppl calling her ADVIL?
    Pps.DERYCK SHOULD HAVE TOLD CONE AND STEVO HE WAS GONNA PROPOSE!Poor uninformed Cone and Stevo.

  21. j

    omg, the most punk rawk wedding of the year!

  22. amber

    i think they will last longer then some relationships in Hollywood. Or atleast i hope it lasts longer. In my personaly opinion they r kinda young and you think they would wait a while, but maybe they r really in love! so who knows, i wish them luck!

  23. anne

    they just don’t belong together, you know what i think? i think avril should be together with matt brann they look swet together. about the hair i think its because of derick

  24. sgn827

    i dont think they will get divorced they r such a good couple

  25. nick

    i dont think they will get divorced i think yhey will last and i think her hair looks good blonde

  26. Jade

    see now i don’t think there’s anything wrong with her hair but i do think that their marrige will last just because brad and jennifer’s marriage didn’t last doesn’t mean it’s gonna be like that for everyone they love each other and that’s all that matters

  27. me

    i think dat shes chnged a lot and not all for the good coz like sum1 else sed she used 2 be different and didnt want boys takin advantage of her and nw it kind of all about dat with the slut hair and the ugli bfriend wot hapened to the i dnt give a shit avril she wuz way cooler!!

  28. mlo(michelle)

    i think they’ll last for a while, at first i couldnt believe it she said she didnt want any boiz, but then i sorta got used to it and just beacause theyre gonna get married doesnt mean theyre gonna change i hope that their marriage will last but come the hair.. it looks RIDICULOUS!)

  29. Amanda

    Oh.. come on.. just leave them alone… if they wanna be together so let them be… if they’re in love so everyone one else is.. what are people complaining about other people theses days… i am so sick and tired of hearing it… blah… peace
