Someone needs to do an in-depth analysis of Hollywood’s water source because this whole “Summer of Love 2k18” crisis is getting out of hand. First, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson brought their nauseating, lightning-fast engagement full of BDE into the mainstream. Next, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s PDA-packed love fest turned into promises of “I do” shortly after the pop star’s headline-making split with Selena Gomez rocked #Jelena stans to their core. Now, rounding out the trifecta of A-list engagements, Nick Jonas shattered JoBros shipper hearts everywhere by announcing his intent to marry actress Priyanka Chopra.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are engaged
According to People, the 25-year-old solo star proposed to Chopra, 11 years his senior, while the two were vacationing in London. Proving that he really is just as romantic and sensitive IRL as he sings on wax, Jonas allegedly shut down an entire Tiffany store in NYC to select the perfect ring for Chopra without the prying eyes of the public peering over his shoulder.

“His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him,” said a source close to the “Jealous” singer. “He’s definitely very serious about her.”
While I definitely think that Chopra and Jonas are cute together and that their long-standing friendship bodes well for the health of their romantic relationship, I see no reason to rush to the altar. Yes, Jonas has kept busy these past few years by linking up with a carousel of super-hot models, and the fact that he’s finally ready to settle down with Chopra is equal parts commendable and heartwarming. However, I see absolutely no reason to enter a lifelong commitment with another person when you have only been dating for TWO MONTHS.
Fucking hell. Is there a secret dating timeline for celebs that we don’t know about? Why are they always in such a rush to get married? Why would Nick Jonas get engaged after only being with someone for 2 months? 🙄

When both parties are worth millions of dollars, divorce is a full-blown battlefield where money-hungry lawyers eagerly comb through prenups looking for ways to bleed the other party dry. Have Jonas and Chopra really thought this through? Marriage vows certainly aren’t promises that anyone should take lightly, especially after sustaining a romantic relationship for such a short time.
Here’s a note for Hollywood couples eager to put a ring on it without knowing exactly what they’re getting into: You can be both madly and love and incompatible with one another at the same time.
