It does, doesn’t it? And I’m sure being a star on a TV show doesn’t help and only furthers this narcissistic, self-centered view of the world.
Leah is that way beyond what most of the Teen Moms, though, in that she’s unable to figure out how to meet their needs even when they start pulling away. (By “they,” I mean whatever boyfriend/husband she’s with). It’s like it never even occurs to her that their needs are valid, too, all she does it complain about what they don’t do for her.
to be clear, I do think Jeremy AND Leah were both stupid in that they married way too quickly, before they really got to know each other and then, they had a kid together. They didn’t take the time to see whether or not they were compatible, long-term. So, that’s where Jeremy fucked up, he committed to something before he realized what he was getting into. But I can’t blame him one bit for wanting out and for getting out. I just hope he learned a lesson from that, about getting to know someone better before committing to spending the rest of his life with her after only knowing her a few months. But as far as the divorce goes, nope, I can’t blame him one bit. I don’t even think he was that quick to run. It seems like he tried talking to Leah about problems he had with her, but Leah didn’t wanna hear it, she dismissed his needs...and then wonders why he began to pull away.
I don’t think Leah understands practical needs. By PRACTICAL, I mean day-to-day, regular needs, like cleanliness, organization, getting the kids to school on time, having food and drinks in the fridge, just day to day maintainence that some people may seem trivial, but if it gets bad enough, it’s not. And with Leah, it was bad enough, at least it was at one point, I’m not entirely sure what it’s like now, because her scenes don’t really focus on that anymore. I hope it’s improved, though. If Leah ever wants to find a forever-husband and be that stay at home mom she’s always dreamed of being, she’s gotta work on her domestic skills! If you want that traditional type of marriage, you gotta do your part and play the traditional role, right?
