'Teen Mom' Leah Messer & Jeremy Calvert Must Choose Their Marriage Over the Kids This Time

leah messer jeremy calvert twin girlsTeen Mom 2's Leah Messer and new beau Jeremy Calvert may have tied the knot this past spring, but apparently, the young couple have yet to take a honeymoon. No big surprise there, given how hectic their life has got to be. The two definitely have their hands full with Ali and Aleeah, Leah's twins from her previous relationship (and split-second-long marriage to) with Corey Simms. But that isn't to say that they haven't been scheming about a possible post-nuptial getaway.

A source told OK! magazine that "Leah's dream would be somewhere with the beach, sun, and sand. She really wants to go somewhere she and Jeremy can relax." Sounds totally doable and romantic. There's one hitch ...

Reportedly, the couple doesn't want to go anywhere that's too far from the twins. In fact, OK!'s source even admits:

They almost never get time for themselves because the girls are their number-one priority.

So sweet, and definitely understandable, but still ... it sounds like by failing to nab themselves some one-on-one couples time, I'd worry that they're going to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a very necessary opportunity to bond as a couple ... without the girls! Actually, I'd venture to guess that taking that "time for themselves" will make them even happier as a couple and even better off as a parenting team.

Also, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying they have to go on a $5K international jet-set type trip to Tahiti or Thailand. Even a local beach vacay -- staying at a romantic B&B or low-key resort -- within driving distance of their home could work. Maybe they could ask one of their parents to watch the girls.

I'll be the first to admit it's a lot to think about paying for a wedding and a fancy vacay right afterward. Sometimes, couples have to put it off for a few months -- maybe even a year. But to never go and miss out on some precious alone time as newlyweds? It would simply be a shame.

Do you agree Leah and Jeremy should make a point to go on a honeymoon, even if it's close to home?

I agree that they should take a honeymoon but like they said the girls are their number one priority and if they cant get away right now then they cant. Some couples dont get a chance for a honeymoon untill many years after thier maraige. If they are serious about eachother then they have the rest of their lives to get some one on one time. Don't rush them.

Uh, no, maybe they should have DATED for awhile to get to know each other better? They are so ridiculously young...why the hurry? Dumb, just plain DUMB.

Oh Maressa, there you go again, waxing on about something that you have ZERO knowledge since you a) do not have children and b) are not yet married. I know you're engaged and the BIG DAY is coming soon which gives you some scant knowledge on the hassle of planning a wedding. However, it's a COMPLETELY different ball game when you are planning a wedding when you are a parent. Our daughter was a year old when we got married (she's almost 5 now) and we have not ever had a honeymoon nor do we really care if we never do. Our relationship is just fine in spite of it. Maybe because we have had small bits of couple time frequently enough to keep a healthy relationship, I don't know. I just wish you would stick to subjects that you actually KNOW something about, instead of acting like you're some kind of relationship/child-rearing guru.

1) A honeymoon is not an essential part of a marriage, nor is it a requirement in order to bond as a couple. It's nice and certainly fun, but lack of a honeymoon won't (or at least shouldn't) make or break a marriage. 2) A "local beach vacay" for a couple living in Charleston, WV? Are you kidding with that? It's at least a 7.5 hour drive across at least 2 states to the closest beach from Charleston (since, you know, WV isn't just the western part of VA). Please get both a clue and a map.

@butterfly freak, just because she isnt married and doesnt not have kids does not mean she is not entitled to her opinion. Idiot, and i am lmao at lucretia.

Ummm  No need to be so rude. Apparently Maressa is pulling her info & forming her opinion from the "OK!" article. Duh! Now don't fault her her for the misconception that newlyweds HAVE to have a honeymoon especially those with children born prior. But, then again there are some couples who should have that time away & who's to say she isn't right on that one? Oh, WVMomma- maybe you should get a clue and a map- Va Beach is app 7.5 hrs away and a state and a half away.....a very decent drive if they wanted to get some sun & sand! I know people that turn 4 day trips like that all summer long! Just saying...
