(Newser) – If you've been holding out hope that star-crossed lovers Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston would find their happily-ever-after, we have bad news for you: Not only is Levi having a kid with another woman, it turns out Bristol is also moving on in quite a significant way. According to that most trustworthy of news sources, the National Enquirer, as cited by the equally trustworthy Daily Mail, Palin is planning to enter into a "trial marriage" with boyfriend Gino Paoletti. Or, as we commoners refer to it, the couple will be shacking up.

Apparently the experiment is part of that Bristol Palin reality show you didn't ask for, which will air on Lifetime. Palin and Paoletti, both 21, have been dating for more than a year and will be living in the Wasilla home Bristol bought last year. Despite the fact that Palin has made her views on premarital sex well-known, a source says the couple has "talked about getting married but they think it’s a good idea to get a feel for living together before making it official." Apparently, Bristol believes her relationship with Levi could have benefited from such an experiment. (Lest you had forgotten, click to read about Paoletti's questionable Facebook postings.)

Abstinence obviously works only as long as you don't have somebody to shag.

This isn't the first time Gino & Bristol have "shared" a house. They lived together in Arizona when Bristol bought her house there. Another "family values" hypocrite bites the dust. I have no problem with people living together, I have a problem with people who have gotten rich preaching abstinence with no intention of following it, and having a reality show to glorify it. I also have a problem with mothers who expose their young & impressionable children to men who think its funny to call people "nigga" and heaven knows what else, and turn that child's life into a constant media circus. Of course she's just following her mom's "not-so-sterling" parenting.
