Doug Hutchison - Top Therapist: 'Doug Hutchison's Relationship With Teenage Wife Is For Real'

THE GREEN MILE star Doug Hutchison and his young bride Courtney Stodden have been given the seal of approval from one of America's top relationship gurus.

The actor was 51 when he wed 16-year-old Stodden last year (May11) and although she has an issue with the "timing" of the union, which became sexual on the couple's honeymoon, Dr. Jenn Berman is convinced the pair's relationship is not fake.

Dr. Berman spent three weeks counselling the Hutchisons for upcoming reality Tv show Couple's Therapy and she insists the courtship and marriage was no publicity scam.

Appearing on news show Access Hollywood Live with the couple on Monday (08Oct12), Dr. Berman said, "They married when she was 16; that's where I have an issue with it. But, as a therapist, a lot of the time I have to do work with people who have different morals, different values, different religions... and this is a couple who is legally married... and they came to me with conflicts in their marriage that needed to be worked on."

Hutchison had to get permission from Stodden's parents to marry her - because he didn't want to wait to make her his bride.

In the Tv chat, Stodden revealed she lost her virginity to her husband on her honeymoon.

He said, "Life is unpredictable and you need to live every day to the fullest... We're soulmates, so we needed to dive... She's 18 now, so what would be the point to have waited until she was 18?

"Our inspirations were Jon and Bo Derek; they were married when she was 15 and they had a 22-year marriage. She held his hand while he was on his death bed. Celine Dion and Rene Angelil - he met her when she was 12."

The Tv chat became heated when host Billy Bush took aim at Hutchinson after learning the actor had a six-month Internet relationship with Stodden before her mother let the couple meet.

Bush said, "People are gonna call you a paedophile and a pervert for meeting a young girl online, and they're not far wrong," adding, "You just threw your career away, haven't you?"

Hutchison responded, "I would do it again over and over and over because I fell in love with the woman I was supposed to be with for the rest of my life."
