20 Sketchy Things About Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin's Marriage We Need To Stop Ignoring

Baby, baby, baby, oh Hailey!

Those days of a floppy-haired preteen "Biebs" singing those iconically tinged songs of puppy love are long gone and have broken like a case of "Bieber fever!" Justin Bieber is all grown up and wants the world to know just how grown up he is, and he has an eternal lady love by his side to prove it.

The love of the right woman has managed to tame Justin and helped him shed his long-held image as yet another Hollywood bad boy who wanted to make sure there were many less lonely girls in the world. Hailey Baldwin made an honest man out of Justin when they married after a whirlwind romance, which escalated so fast, many still question whether the couple is ready for a huge commitment.

There's still so many details and questions to explore about The Biebers, and we're on the case!

Body language speaks louder than words in many, many cases!

Hailey may be a blushing bride, but she's still a bride who is attempting to ride away from rumors more than a year after her first wedding!

Sometimes it's better to say nothing, no matter how tempted you are, than to say anything at all!

The most questionable part of his speech? He admitted he still "loves" Selena. Woah, dude!

Before building your own family, it would be comforting to know that your "first" family gives you and yours the official seal of approval. Hailey's famous family weren't all onboard for her upcoming nuptials.

It goes without saying you probably would pass on having any of your ex's songs on your playlist, and it's safe to assume Hailey isn't blasting any songs by Salena Gomez, but she is blasting those critics who are looking to find some drama between the two ladies in the wake on Salena's recent release of the intimately revealing "Lose You To Love Me."
