Leah, there are many important things you should be focusing on — and a wedding isn’t one of them.
What on earth is Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer thinking? Did she not learn the first time around? Leah is only 19 and already has one divorce under her belt, yet she’s engaged to get married again. Leah, that’s not a smart decision.
Leah’s boyfriend Jeremy Calvert proposed to her on Christmas Day. While that was a sweet gesture, the cold, hard reality is that they barely know each other. Leah met Jeremy in July, just one month after her divorce from Corey Simms was finalized. That means that Leah has only been dating Jeremy for about six months. That’s not long enough to know if he is husband material.
Leah seems to be rushing her life with Jeremy. They moved in together after only a couple of months dating — and she seems to be blinded by her emotions and not thinking rationally.
If Leah was thinking rationally, she would realize the situation that she’s in — a divorced, single young mother trying to raise her 2-year-old twin daugherts Aliannah and Aleeah and pregnant with her third child.
Leah may sincerely love Jeremy with all of her heart, but she has to weigh the reality. If she got divorce again, she would be stuck raising not two, but three children on her own. And how could she subject her children to the pain of another split home? They are at a very young and impressionable age right now and look up to Leah to set example.
Leah, please seriously consider the commitment you are about to undertake. This isn’t your life anymore, you are a mom. You have to do what’s right for your children first, and yourself second.
If you are convinced that Jeremy is the one, then don’t rush it. Take time and get to know him better. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you.
