Judging by Bristol Palin’s latest post on her personal blog, titled “The Wedding That Didn’t Happen,” it doesn’t look as if there is room for reconciliation with decorated Marine vet Dakota Meyer. Palin, 24, writes that she is home in Alaska with son Tripp, 6, “beginning to rebuild our lives under much different circumstances than we anticipated.” The couple had planned on getting married over the Memorial Day weekend in Kentucky, where, strangely enough, her mother Sarah Palin, along with Meyer and a few others, got together and partied anyway.
