Ah, spring. A time for growth and renewal, in both nature and, apparently, Mariah Carey's life. The growth of Carey's waistline is an ongoing topic in the media, and plans to renew her two-year-old marriage vows are news this week. Somehow, though, we don't find these things quite as hopeful as May flowers.
Don't get us wrong, we would like nothing more than to be able to imagine the couple safely nestled in a blissful marriage, renewing their still-fresh vows amidst a shower of glitter and butterflies, feeding each other slices of Hello Kitty–themed wedding cake. Always Be My Baby is playing in the background, and Cannon and Carey gaze knowingly into each other's eyes, laughing quietly and making light of all the internet gossip that surrounds the pair. But somehow, we doubt this is the case. The combination of Carey's weight gain and erratic public behavior are too much for our rose-colored fantasy of celebrity coupledom to bear. 10 Coolest Cougar/Cub Relationships

She is unstable, at best, and that is no recipe for a happy marriage.
