Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, the father of Bristol’s baby Tripp called it quits a couple weeks ago, and just released the news today. Bummer. Levi said they decided

a while ago.

Bristol said she was


Last month Bristol told Greta van Susteren that she and Levi were planning to marry:

Eventually, we’d like to get married. We’re focusing on, like, getting through school and just getting an education and stuff, getting a career going. 

Bristol also admitted that absintence is not realistic:

I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is, like — like, the — I don’t know how to put it — like, the main — everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all….o see stories like this and to see other stories of teen moms and just — it’s something that’s — I don’t know, just — you should just wait 10 years and it’d just be so much easier.

And neither it seems are Gov GILF’s expectations. In the same interview wihtvn Susteren Alaska’s Frost Lady (who sent Bristol away to live with family duirng her pregnancy, during which the 17 year old worked two jobs while goin to school):

So you get behind that, that ideal of, yes, abstinence, you know? Hey, don’t get pregnant. Well, get beyond that when it happens, and then you deal with it. Life happens. Life happens and you deal with it, and Bristol’s dealing with it wonderfully..

Pro tip:  Most tattooist don’t really recommend getting a name tattooed on you, unless it’s a parent, a kid, a dead person or a pet. Seriously, Levi, dude–you may want to order some Wrecking Balm for that finger.
