Speaking as a northerner, there are a number of appealing and unique aspects that I see when I view southern culture: SEC football, southern hospitality, traditional values, and a seemingly infinite amount of quality whiskey and bourbon. One area that you appear to be lacking, however, is in the romance department, as displayed by Meagan Nicole Jordan and her boyfriend.
This past weekend, the couple decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a way that is bound to hit you right in the feels: by exchanging promise rings in front of a Walmart jewelry display. The, for lack of a better word, incident took place at a Walmart in Saraland, Alabama — a suburb of Mobile.
To add to the strangeness of this couple, the photographs provided by bustedcoverage.com give clear evidence that the two are split in terms of their state of Alabama football allegiances — Jordan supporting the Tigers of Auburn, while her boyfriend proudly wears the crimson and ivory of the University of Alabama.
Imagine the stories that they will have to tell their kids down the line.
“Mommy and I exchanged promises rings at a Walmart on Valentine’s Day, went home, made some sweet love on the futon and that’s how you came about. However, we are now in the process of getting a divorce because I told her I value my autographed picture of Nick Saban more than my relationship with her parents.”
We can only hope that the rest of Alabama isn’t as hopelessly lost when it comes to love as these two appear to be..
