Teen bride Courtney Alexis Stodden and her "Lost" actor husband, Doug Hutchison, have offered their side of the story. Making an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday, July 15, the couple defended their controversial marriage and Courtney opened up about Doug being her first.

Speaking of her wedding night, the 16-year-old aspiring country singer claimed, "I was a virgin. I knew that if I kept that, I would really be blessed with a beautiful gift. And God did. He blessed me with my soulmate. So I'm really thankful for that." She is also sure about their marriage because she believes she is "an old soul".

Backing up her words, 51-year-old Doug said, "Yeah, I always joke with Courtney that one of the reasons we worked is 'cause she's 16 going on 36, and I'm 51 going on 21." During the chat, the actor also revealed it was Courtney who made the first move toward romance. "She was being very flirtatious," he said. To which, she responded, "Well come on, he's so handsome."

Doug also maintained that he initially thought that Courtney was into her twenties. Upon finding out that she was a teenager, he admitted, "My world turned upside down." Still, he said, "It didn't make me want to walk away, but it definitely was a struggle inside my heart ... because I had already started falling for her."

For their marriage and their 35 year age difference, Courtney and Doug have been condemned by the public as well as his own mother, agent and manager. To that, Doug responded, "We said, 'We knew this was going to happen. We knew we were going to have to weather the repercussions of our decision, our union. And this is just the beginning.' And it brought us closer together."

He's either going to get tired of her immaturity or she's going to meet someone her age in college. I fully support them but I don't see it lasting very long.

What's with you guys. Here in Eastern Europe, girls regard older men as more suitable partners for serious relationships and marriage. You need to be tough and successful here to survive! The young wankers fall out, they have to sit on the side and get NOTHING. They are not the real men!

I would do her anytime.. or else someone else is going to do her any case. Getting such hot chick so early as a virgin is a gift directly from the Lord of the Rings :) .. Amen! That's my story, and I am gonna stick to it!

What I see in her future -Divorce 2nd season of their Reality show, public divorce proceedings, public meltdown, substance abuse, jail time and rehab, exclusive interview with Nightline about her downward spiral and how she came out of it, also during interview there will be revelations about how she was sexually abused by some family member. Also she will reveal that her parents forced her into the marriage for her career, at the end of it all she will have found "Jesus" and Nighline will end the interview with her singing some gospel song. THE END

If she's only dated older men, which I imagine she has, she would have to remain celebate in the relationships or her dates would be facing lengthy prison sentences. Interesting that marriage is the legal way around child abuse.

First, she's not 16. I mean look at her face. I know women lie about their age but this is rediculous. And second, she sure ain't no virgin. Todays definition of a virgin is the ugliest girl in the 3rd grade.

She seems like she's on something. Look at her body language. Christian? She looks like a Street walker or wannabe porn star. I don't care who got what consent. Her parents, him as well as her need their heads examined.
