Miliam sounds like some kind of mushroom, but Miley and Liam are a couple — and couples get nicknames.
This couple’s been engaged off and on for what feels like centuries, and there were even rumors that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth would get married on July 4th in a private ceremony.
Well, the Fourth of July and its fireworks have come and gone (unless you have alcoholic neighbors, in which case the fireworks may never end), and Miley and Liam remain engaged. We’re hearing that the wedding was called off — but at least there’s an explanation.
According to Life & Style, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus canceled their wedding — for now.
“Bottom line, Liam got cold feet,” says the source.
Apparently he felt like the stressful process of planning the wedding “seemed to be taking over their life.”
That happens so easily.
Wedding-planning is notoriously difficult.
And stressful to an absurd degree.
So, though they say that Liam was the one who put his foot down, the two of them agreed to put things off.
“Miley was really having fun imagining her wedding.”
That’s no surprise — lots of people grow up imagining their weddings.
Because of how people are socialized by gender from a young age, a lot of those people are girls.
But when a wedding actually looks like it might be on the horizon, daydreaming becomes planning.
That’s not always as fun.
“But she knows it’s important to put a hold on everything.”
It’s good that Miley has, according to this source, the right priorities.
Your wedding shouldn’t be more important than your prospective spouse.
“She loves Liam and wants it to last forever when they take that step. But it can’t be now.”
That’s super cute.
What went wrong?
We all know that Miley Cyrus quit weed because she dreamed that she would die.
Honestly that was the most extra explanation for a minor lifestyle change that we’ve ever seen.
But we don’t imagine that Miley was planning something so terrible that Liam had to postpone the wedding.
(Though, if we were talking about this in 2015, maybe we’d have different suspicions)
But maybe the source is speculating.
In fact, maybe they misunderstood what they perceived to be a wedding date.
Recently, Miley’s mom said that Miley wasn’t planning to marry any time soon.
According to Trish Cyrus, Miley doesn’t see why people keep pushing her to marry, since things are so perfect with Liam right now.
Miley has a great point.
If everything’s exactly how she wants it, why mess with perfection, you know?
But mom’s don’t always know everything going on in their children’s relationships.
Especially when we’re talking about their adult children.
Maybe they were planning a surprise wedding that was super secret, and Liam froze up and didn’t want to follow through.
And yeah, maybe he was having flashbacks of Miley’s obsession with twerking and other antics.
(But we doubt it — he clearly loves her for exactly who she is)
But maybe the wedding was just that challenging, you know?
Sometimes the brides or grooms or bride and groom or whatever gender combo is going on need a wedding planner precisely because there are so many decisions.
And while you’d think “gee, wouldn’t it be just as hard for the wedding planner?” … this is one of those cases where Miley and Liam might be too close, emotionally, to their own wedding to make what should be easy choices.
Honestly, I don’t know the first thing about wedding planning, but I’d probably have an easier time planning their nuptuals because I wouldn’t be agonizing over every choice. Because none of it would be personal — you see what I’m saying?
Miley and Liam each have their own families who are going to have different wants and needs, and then all sorts of friends, and there are endless directions to go with a wedding.
They are from opposite sides of the globe, so there’s a lot to consider beyond what dress looks best.
The world might know what Miley looks like naked, but there’s no shortage of things that we can’t know about Miley and Liam’s relationship.
But it sounds like they’ll get married when they get married, if at all.
And you know what?
If they’re happy the way that things are, there’s no reason why they should change that.
