Bates Wedding Bells?


"I know some people that want to get married next, but I don't know if they're ready to get married next."
-Erin Bates Paine

So far, four of Gil and Kelly Bates' 19 kids are married (Zach, Michaela, Erin, and Alyssa), one is in an official courtship (Tori), and another (Carlin) is in the get-to-know-you stage with her boyfriend. In the video below, Erin and Chad Paine discuss which sibling they expect will be the next to tie the knot. What are your predictions?

    1. Every teenager is excited about their first boy/girlfriend. That doesn't mean they're suited to be a lifelong match. These poor kids.

  2. Maybe Lawson will meet a girl who supports his music. I agree with others too. I think Nathan would be great with Jana Duggar. Who knows??

  3. This makes me wonder now,is Nathan even in a relationship with a young lady...?

  4. My prediction is that Carlin will be the next to get married. Tori & Bobby seem to want to wait until both have graduated. :)

  5. Is Nathan in a relationship? I know Tori prob will be next to marry. Is Lawson in a relationship?

  6. I think Tori and Bobby will get married in about a year (right after Tori graduates from college).

    1. Nice idea, but Emily Ann has a boyfriend, possibly fiance!

    2. Exactly what I was thinking.

  8. Nathan is not with Jana Duggar and Lawson is not in a relationship. Tori said that she was getting married next May after graduation.

  9. A year seems like a long time to not have a Bates wedding. Perhaps Lawson or Nathan are getting ready to announce a relationship. Usually when couples bring someone else up it's a "hint" that things are happening!

  10. Does anyone else see a wedding band -looking ring on Bobby's left hand ring finger during the middle of the clip? They're holding hands, then Bobby reached up to scratch his nose. Take a look!

    1. The couple feature in the clip is Erin (Bates) and Chad Paine. They are married. Tori and Bobby are not.

    2. Sorry, I should have put this comment in the previous video clip. Where Nathan flew Bobby in for I love you day. When Tori and Bobby are on the couch, he reaches up and there seems to be a ring on his finger.

    3. Some young men wear purity rings. I would guess that this band is his.

  11. I think Tori and Bobby will get married but what I am wondering is are Carlin and Evan still boyfriend and girlfriend?

    1. No. They're in the "getting-to-know-you" stage. Not dating, just "getting acquainted."

  12. I'm wondering if Carlin and Evan are a couple also. I hope the video made of Erin saying that none of her relationships she put together worked out was before Carlin and Evan. They make a great couple. I would love to hear them do something musical together since Evan is part of his musical family and Carlin is majoring in music.

  13. Ellie,
    I would love to see some Whitney and some of the other girls do some makeup, hair and fashion videos.

  14. Oh how I wish Erin and Chad had spoken up to the Paine family against the relationship between his sister Tabitha and her much-older now-husband with a concerning criminal past. She surely deserved much, much better.

    1. Agree!!! I can't believe she's with someone with a criminal past. It's sad to see how she agreed to marry that man and how her family didn't see it as an issue.

      Delete
    2. I didn't really know what readers were talking about, so I googled the story about her now-husband. What happened was truly an awful thing, but I guess whether she should have married him depends on if he's truly changed or not, which of course is impossible for us to know. Hopefully God really changed his heart and life around and hopefully he'll be a great husband.

    3. Although Robertson initially pleaded guilty to rape and was convicted, he was eventually pardoned almost ten years ago and taken off the sex offender's registry. Finding the Lord and being forgiven for any past indiscretions would make him acceptable marriage material for the Paine's.

    4. Whoa! I need to start googling!

  15. Maybe Nathan could fly back to Ashley! She was adorable!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I hope Nathan finds a girl that treats him well and that he is not pining for Ashley

    ReplyDelete
  17. Erin said none of her matches work out so I am wondering if Carlin and Evan are still getting to know each other. I really hope so they were so cute together.

  18. I think Tori anD Bobby will be the next to get married.

    Nathan and Ashley broke up because she difn't like living in Tennessee. Ashley rather live in New York City near her mommy and daddy.

    1. @11:29. Why so unkind about Ashley? Nothing wrong with her loving her beautiful city or wanting to be near her* ahem* "mommy and daddy". That was a bit rude BTW. The Bates certainly enjoy being around each other as well. If Nathan wanted to be with Ashley he could have moved to the city. Choices.

      Delete
    2. He could have, but Nathan is working in his family business and the one to take it over. Ashley knew that accepting the offer of courting might mean moving to TN. You don't accept that knowing in your head you will walk away from it. That is part that isn't right. And one does not get a pilot's license in a few days, it takes years, so just because we found out about what Nathan was doing recently doesn't mean it just occurred. Besides it was Ashley who said don't move me 70 miles from a mall. Really? Very materialistic. going into this she knew what was expected and what the "rules" are. He met her whole family one of the episodes said, so it isn't like she didn't know this was coming. So to say yes then back out of it a few months later is what is wrong. Be honest and truthful up front, not misleading and dishonest.

  19. Erin and Chad are such an adorable couple. They are the best looking couple on television. Sweetest smiles, and greatest laughs. They are so loving...their children are very lucky to have them as parents.

  20. I hope Nathan finds someone who treats him well. Ashley made fun of him when they were in NY and I don't think her heart was in it. She seemed too immature to me.

    1. I hope Ashley finds someone who treats her well. The entire Bates Family were immature while in NYC. Nathan was embarrassing when skating. Ashley had to tell him several times to skate in the right direction so as not to harm others. Very immature. Nathan is not culturally open enough to have been with Ashley. Ashley loves her city and its diversity. Nathan couldn't handle it.

  21. I think Nathan is a great young man but I agree Ashley made fun of him and he deserves so much better. I think she was a sweet girl nut not for him.

  22. I READ WERE THE VIDEO WAS MADE BEFORE CARLIN AND EVAN SO THAT WAS GREAT NEWS

  23. Lawson and Emily Ann would be cute. Did anyone else notice how Lawson smiles so big every time he talks about her?

    1. Emily Ann has a long-term boyfriend! It seems
      like they have been dating for years!

  24. Erin is a wonderful matchmaker and will find great spouses for her siblings. LOL. I predict Tori and Bobby won't wait and that Tori will finish college after marriage especially if Bobby moves to TN or Tori moves to FL. I also suspect Carlin and Evan are in a courtship now but waiting for the new season in a few weeks. Would love to see Lawson in one, but she'd have to be very into music herself. Hopefully Nathan will find someone who values him and his spunkiness and fun outlook on life. He is a great catch for someone who appreciates him.
