Lucy Mecklenburgh, 20, insists she isn't too young to get married and can't understand why people question her engagement to Mario Falcone
Lucy Mecklenburgh insists she isn't too young to get married.
The 20-year-old reality TV star got engaged to her 'Only Way Is Essex' co-star Mario Falcone, 24, in May, and can't understand why people don't think they are ready to take the next step in their lives.
She said: "It upsets me that people don't realise I'm ready to get married."
Mario added: "We've gone through so much it feels like we've been together for years."
Despite their union being incredibly tumultuous in the past - including Lucy cheating on Mario with former 'TOWIE' star Mark Wright - the pair say they are now more serious about one another than ever.
Mario told OK! magazine: "I don't think she understood what love is back then. She's a different person and has grown up a lot."
Lucy added: "We completely trust each other."
Lucy recently admitted she is a "bit scared" about getting married.
She said: "I do want to get married, but I'm a bit scared. I'd happily say let's get married in five years, but I don't think that's what Mario wants. I'm not ready for all the questions about the wedding and I don't want to plan it."
