Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer may be happier than ever with her second husband Jeremy Calvert and expecting baby #3, but not that long ago, she was going through a dark time. Yeah, back when she was with her ex-husband Corey Simms. On the Teen Mom 2 After Show, Leah opened up about the the demise of her first marriage.
It actually sounds like she and Corey may have something in common with Kim Kardashian. She says that once the ball had gotten rolling on their divorce, "I just felt like it was too late. Everything had just gotten way out of hand. Moved way too fast. It was like we had no control of it." And yet, she even admitted that the two were second-guessing going through with the divorce up until the last minute. Wow ...
The day before the divorce was final, I was like, ‘You don’t wanna do this. We’re gonna look back and be like, why did we do this?’ And he didn’t say anything. Nothing. So we couldn’t swallow our pride.
So heartbreaking. Just a guess, but it sounds like the two really got caught up in what they thought their relationship could be -- as opposed to what it really was. They married and ended up divorcing as a result of not really being fully aware of their real issues. The result: A total communication breakdown and finding that they just were NOT on the same page at all.
It's easy to judge a relationship like Leah and Corey's from afar and think it could never happen to you, but when it comes to emotions and relationships, it's so so so easy to get carried away and to not be completely conscious of what's going on right before our eyes. To find yourself saying "I do" to a marriage or a divorce and not even know how you got there. What a shame.
Thankfully, in the end, it seems like at least Leah has ended up where she belongs and has come to peace (as much as possible) with the breakup. Here's the clip where she reflects on the ordeal and admits that maybe they were just never "meant to be."
What do you think about Leah's reflections on her relationship with Corey?
