'Too Young To Marry' Star

Paid $5K to Become

Child Bride on TV

EXCLUSIVE

0319-jurnee-lynn-mroczek-oxygen

Attention teens who don't want to sling burgers for minimum wage.  You can score a cool $5k, and all you have to do is get married and possibly ruin your life ... on television.

That's what 17-year-old Jurnee Mroczek is raking in for tying the knot on Oxygen's new reality show, "Too Young To Marry."

We obtained a copy of the contract Jurnee (common spelling) signed ... which also obligates her to do voice-over work.  The contract also provides for exclusivity, presumably meaning she can't get married a second time on another reality show.

In case you're a romantic ... Jurnee and her hubby, 21-year-old Don Atkinson met at a V-Ball game in 2009.

Bump, set, spike, hitched.

So, he said in the video he is 20. She said she is 16. They started dating 3 yrs ago. So that would make them 13 and 17 when they started dating..and no one had a problem with that 3 years ago?!

I am Jurnee. I got married to Don because I love him. WE did it because WE wanted to. Age is just a number.. if somebody really loves somebody then nothing else should matter.

Help me understand why something like this would be acceptable? Help me understand how what marriage was intended for comes into the equation?

How can someone persuade me that she is a victim?

Where is her father?

It seems like prostituting marriage, and I don't mean that disrespectfully. I'm just keeping it real.

These are the reasons that in spite of our vices and human nature, church is important. And I'm not a preacher.

I got married at 16...I'm still marred to the same man he was 20 at the time and its been over 20 years. The same people back then that said we would not last, they have been married and divorced and in some cases more than once.

A 17 year old cannot even sign a binding agreement to buy a car so if anyone actually cares about her or she comes to her senses whatever papers she signed cannot be enforced
