Teen Mom's Catelynn and Tyler have come such a long way since they were scared 16-year-olds expecting a baby. 

They made the incredibly difficult decision to give up their daughter, Carly, for adoption. But through it all, this Teen Mom power couple has gotten through everything together. 

And now they get to celebrate together! On Teen Mom season 4, episode 3, Cate and Ty are finally about to graduate. But, of course, nothing comes easy for these two, especially when their families get involved. 

While Catelynn's father and brother come early to start the festivities, it's unclear if Tyler's father, Butch, will even get out of jail soon enough to make it. 

"I used to have hope, I really did. I just don't," a rueful Tyler admits to Catelynn. 

Later, Butch calls. He's getting out of prison Monday ... one day after graduation. "I'll get you a card or something," Butch tells Tyler. 

"it's good enough," Tyler replies, barely able to keep the sarcasm out of his voice. Later, though, with their friends, Tyler lets his true feelings show. "Motherf***er, i expect you to get me a 99 cent card!" he rants. 

April's mom (and Butch's ex) does show up and surprises Catelynn (and us) with her warmth and good behavior. She tells Catelynn she's very proud of her little girl, and the two exchange tearful hugs. 

The night before graduation, Ty and Cate talk about how far they've come ... and how far they still have to go. Sure, they might be engaged, but marriage still seems a long way off. "I know I want to be with you for the rest of my life but yeah, marriage is a big commitment," Catelynn admits to her fiance.

But marriage talk can wait! The next day, Catelynn and Tyler get their diplomas in front of their happy friends and family (and the fans!). We have a feeling these two have even bigger, better, brighter things to look forward to. Or as Tyler put it, "We have so much ahead of us. It's cool."

Very cool
