Are Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert going through tough times? The Teen Mom 2 couple is on the rocks, or close to it, according to a new report.
This is serious stuff, not trivial matters of their own doing.
They received some potentially devastating news about daughter Ali just about a month ago, and were even forced to sell their house as a result.
Now Jeremy, the father of little Adalynn and stepdad of Ali and Aleeah, has left for a matter of weeks, if not more - but he hasn't moved out for good.
Despite rumors circulating online, this is not a second divorce for Leah, who was previously married to Corey Simms. Jeremy is just leaving for work.
Jeremy makes his living working on pipelines, a job that often requires being away for weeks or months at a time, straining the mother of three.
Still, it's a sacrifice that the couple must make.
The stress of being a single mom is clearly showing on Leah Messer, who has posted numerous tweets bemoaning Jeremy Calvert's absence.
Fortunately, co-stars Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska's dad Randy have reminded her that her bond with Jeremy is a strong enough to withstand it.
Jenelle Evans? Let's not talk about Jenelle Evans.
Bottom line? Leah and Jeremy are trying to do the best they can, but are up against long odds. Think they can make it work? Share your comments.
