It's complicated. 

Since 2009, MTV viewers have watched a handful of young girls become teen moms on TV, beginning their journey with them on 16 and Pregnant in 2009 before the Teen Mom spinoffs continued documenting their ups and downs in motherhood. And fans got to watch their relationship struggles play out as well over the seasons, with a lot of break-ups, make-ups, weddings and divorces. 

Recently, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans got married, while Kailyn Lowry welcomed her third child, after splitting with the father.

As you'll see in our romance rewind, that looks back on all of the couples from Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom 3, many of the ladies are no longer with the guys they had their first child with on 16 and Pregnant.

Alas, there are a few success stories sprinkled throughout the franchise's eight-year history.
