“I was a little surprised that people were so shocked she would undertake that transaction. She’s done other things — she’s slept with other people before, she’s a sexually confident person, she knows what she’s doing, and this was an opportunity for her to set herself up for the rest of her life.

One pap site claimed this was evidence that Jen and Justin are engaged, but last I checked, an engagement ring is worn on the left hand. Anyway, I’m really into Jen’s pulled together, casual vibe.
