The Outrageous Truth About the Prenup Between Courtney Stodden, 19, and Her 53-Year-Old Husband, Doug Hutchison

Courtney Stodden Sugar Daddy Doug HutchisonCourt­ney Stod­den, 19, has been very vocal about end­ing her con­tro­ver­sial mar­riage to 53-year-old actor Doug Hutchi­son. The celebrity cou­ple tied the knot three years ago and through­out their mar­riage, the teen bride tried to con­vince every­one, includ­ing her­self, that their 35-year age dif­fer­ence didn’t mat­ter. She now admits that she was wrong.

I mean, peo­ple say age is just a num­ber and I said that also and obvi­ously age isn’t just a num­ber,” Stod­den told the Daily Mail. “There are some things you have to con­tend with. I’m not say­ing just because there’s an age dif­fer­ence it won’t work. There are some suc­cess­ful mar­riages between peo­ple with an age gap, but it’s not for every­body and obvi­ously I’ll keep that in mind for the future.”

Speak­ing of the future, Stod­den will be pretty set finan­cially because the celebrity cou­ple never signed a prenup. That means that Stod­den is tech­ni­cally enti­tled to part of her soon-to-be ex-husband’s for­tune. Hutchi­son is only esti­mated to be worth around $3.0 mil­lion now—his career took a seri­ous hit after he mar­ried the teen—but in Stodden’s case, hav­ing a nice sum of money to your name before the age of 20 isn’t too shabby.

Stod­den claims that she sug­gested they sign a prenup, but it was Hutchi­son who refused. “I offered and he said, ‘I don’t want to do that because I trust you and we’re get­ting mar­ried.’” We won­der if he’s regret­ting that deci­sion. Nonethe­less, the celebrity cou­ple is said to have split on ami­ca­ble terms, or at least as ami­ca­ble as they could be. They’re even still liv­ing together, albeit in sep­a­rate bed­rooms, and Hutchi­son will con­tinue to co-manage Stodden’s bud­ding career.

What do you think: Was it sweet or stu­pid for Doug Hutchi­son to refuse the prenup?

    How could she legally sign a prenup if she was only 16?

    My great great great great great grand­fa­ther mar­ried a woman 30 years younger than he after his first wife died fol­low­ing a child­less mar­riage. Thank God for dirty old men :-)
