“@SashaFB: Is it true @CourtneyStodden? Are you and Doug engaged?!” It's true, hunPreviously, Stodden explained that she had separated from her much older husband because she felt like she couldn't enjoy her teenage years while being tied down to the former Lost actor.

"I want to be free and embrace my independence and not neglect my youth," she told E! News, adding that she no longer considered the man she married her soulmate.
Rumors of a reconciliation began when Stodden and Hutchison were spotted hanging out together in April. According to a Celebuzz source, the duo were "legally separated" at the time but remained very involved in one another's lives.
"She moved into the studio apartment next door to the house she and Doug rented together. But Doug still lives in the main house," the insider said. "They’re not divorced yet, so she’ll stay there until they figure out how they want to proceed with things."
Well, we're glad to see that they've worked things out. You know, at least for their dog Dourtney's sake.
