'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.

My parents got married in 1953. My mother was 17, and my father was 21. Of course, nobody gave them money and a TV show to do it. It's a different world now.

If they really want ratings they need to get a 60+ year old man marrying a 16/17 year old girl.

Someone, somewhere needs to pull the plug on these types of shows, Teen Mom, Honey Boo Boo, Too Young To Marry, it promotes young people to sell out for cash. TLC and Oxygen should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this kind of behavior to smut up our airwaves.

She looks younger than 17. It is not worth $5,000 just to marry. go live your life first and find out who you are.
