In last night’s episode of ‘Teen Mom 2′ Leah is complaining to her husband yet again about him having to go to work. When he tells her that he’s gotta do what he’s gotta do and doesn’t baby her about it she suggests they go to counseling. (Because Jeremy is just not being understanding enough about her having to be alone in their beautiful house with her beautiful children. She doesn’t even have a job to “escape” to! Poor her!)
Jeremy wisely pointed out that Leah knew exactly what his job was when they got married and that she should have thought about that before saying “I do.” That really got her mad and she then tells him to “man up.” I don’t know how much more he can man up for her. He works a difficult and dangerous job to pay for everything they have including taking care of two children that are not his. There are a lot of women who would LOVE to have a man to take care of them the way Jeremy takes care of Leah. Not only that but Leah also has a ton of support from family and friends. She’s pretty much always got a baby sitter when she needs one so it’s even more ridiculous when she tells him that she is like a single mom.
In the aftershow interview about this particular scene Leah goes on and on about how Jeremy doesn’t show a sensitive side because he thinks it will make him less of a man. Which Jeremy has never even said. The whole time he is looking at her like ‘woman why are you saying these things?’ but he keeps quiet and lets Leah think what she wants about it. She just tells him he needs to work on expressing his feelings.
Personally I think he expressed them pretty well when he slapped her in the face with bacon… (Just kidding, that was totally mean but I think I get why he is like that now!)
