'Teen Mom' Leah Messer Says Marriage Is for Dummies

Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer tied the knot a couple of weeks ago in a “secret” wedding to groom Jeremy Calvert, and caught some flack from fans for getting married again so soon. Especially for a girl who just turned 20. Oh, and supposedly she might be trying for another child. When she already, you know, has two of them.

But that said, over the weekend, Messer tweeted a defense of her choice to race down the aisle a second time: "When you're young and in love you might do some things that don't seem all that smart ... There’s 18 inches from your head and your heart!”


First of all, I measured. Maybe Leah is a lot taller than I am, or she's built like an alien or something, because I’ve got 13 inches between my head and my heart. Did Leah mean her stomach? (Yes, I know this is a saying. I have Google! Maybe I need to see a cardiologist.)

Second, did she just say that her marriage "wasn’t that smart"? Maybe I’m misreading this, so I’m going to read it again: "When you’re young and in love …" -- okay, got that part -- "... you might do some things that don’t seem all that smart." Nope, not misreading. She just said this second wedding happened because she's a dummy. Sort of. Well, all righty then! She’s honest, gotta give her props there.

Leah’s latest union comes less than a year after her divorce from Corey Simms, so it’s natural that people are wondering why she got hitched again so soon. Some are even speculating that it was a shotgun wedding, which Leah’s mom has denied. But now we all know the real reason. It wasn't because of a baby -- it was because of the lack of inches between organs!

At any rate, Leah seems sure this time, saying that she and Jeremy have a "real connection." Plus, this wedding was a small affair, with only close friends, family -- and MTV cameras, natch. It wasn't a three-hour Kardashianesque fake fest.

Leah and Jeremy have had their issues, but she seems like she has always wanted what is best for her daughters. So I’m sure she put a lot of thought into this. At least 18 inches worth.

Is Leah saying her wedding "wasn't that smart" a bad sign?
