Ryan Edwards has been married to Mackenzie Standifer for six months now.
And what a wild and crazy ride it has been.
From the drugged-up drive to their first wedding to the fact that their first wedding was in a parking lot down by the river to Ryan’s Tinder cheating scandal …
There’s so much drama we barely even know where to start.
But since Ryan and Mackenzie are having their second wedding this weekend — the real wedding that they’d been planning before that abrupt decision to get hitched in the parking lot — we have to try!
1. HIGH, HIGH
For a very, very long time — the entirety of his relationship with Mackenzie, even — Teen Mom OG fans noticed that Ryan looked pretty odd on the show.
2. Up to No Good
In addition to looking high as a kite 100% of the time, Ryan got into trouble for murdering a bunch of cats. For real. This is the beginning of the fairy tale love story of Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer.
3. Meet Mackenzie
Right around the same time that Ryan was getting into trouble for killing those cats — and pretty much immediately after she filed for divorce from her first husband — he met Mackenzie.
4. Moving Fast
… And then pretty much immediately after the divorce was finalized, Ryan proposed. Did we mention that Mackenzie was only 19 years old at this time? Because that feels like an important thing to mention.
5. Bad News
A few months after Ryan and Mackenzie got engaged, Maci Bookout began opening up about his issues on Teen Mom OG. She started out by hinting that she was scared for his safety before finally breaking down about his drug addiction while on vacation with Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood.
6. Moving Faster
Though they’d been planning a wedding for November, Ryan and Mackenzie decided to go ahead and get hitched in May because, as she explained it, it would help them in their custody case against Maci for Bentley. It didn’t make too much sense, especially since their custody hasn’t changed since then, but that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
