Did Justin Bieber secretly commit to Selena Gomez in a ceremony? That was the story making headlines yesterday, but E! Online reports that it was all fabricated. The two have not made their relationship definite and there seem to be no plans to exchange promise rings.
Even if they did opt for a commitment ceremony, many would question the validity of it. Would it really mean that the Canadian singer would stop his womanizing ways and put Gomez first? Would it really mean that Gomez is more likely to trust her on-off boyfriend? The answer to both of those are “probably not.”
There is still no confirmation that the two are even back together yet. While they have been spotted out together, that does not mean they are dating again. They have always been friends, and looked out for each other. Bieber is reportedly protective of his ex-girlfriend, but that is as far as it goes right now.
The two certainly do feel something for each other. However, their relationship seems toxic for both. Gomez has been putting her love for the Boyfriend singer before her health, while Bieber regularly acts out and gets in trouble with the police. Of course, the latter is not just due to the relationship, but it is likely to play some part.
Some reports lately go as far as suggesting that the two could get married soon. However, this is not likely. Out of the two rumors, the idea of Bieber and Gomez opting for a secret commitment ceremony seems the most likely one of the two.
Reports have previously stated that the 20-year-old singer is not interested in settling down with his on-off girlfriend. The only time he would consider marriage is if Gomez ended up pregnant, and there are no plans for that anytime soon. He does not want to take her to Canada and marry her there.
The rumors of the ceremony started shortly after an alleged source told Hollywood Life that the Baby singer promised to swear off any other girls. It made the 22-year-old actress feel stronger than ever in her relationship to him.
The whole idea that Gomez would feel more secure in her relationship because of a few words seems too far-fetched. While she follows her heart, she is not completely stupid. She knows that they are just words, and Bieber likes to party. She knows that every time they have had a fight, he goes out and throws the fact that other women like him in her face. At no point would she feel more secure until he finally proves that he can put her before everyone and everything else.
The Canadian singer would not likely lead to her believe that he is willing to change. While he may want her back at times, he will know that his actions speak louder than his words. It just depends on whether he is at a point in his life where he wants a serious relationship with her. The idea of Bieber secretly committing to Gomez in a ceremony is ridiculous.
