“Teen Mom 2” is currently airing the second half of its fifth season on MTV and it’s filled with plenty of relationship drama.
From Leah Calvert’s drama with husband Jeremy to Jenelle Evans’ concerns over her boyfriend Nathan Griffith’s drinking, there is a lot to see unfold on screen. But what about off-screen?
Although the “Teen Mom 2” girls appear to be in the middle of turmoil on the show, their lives in the present are drama-free – at least for the most part.
Leah and Jeremy
Calvert and her husband, Jeremy, went through their fair share of marital issues on “Teen Mom 2” seasons four and five, but their marriage appears to be doing well now. In fact, Leah recently spoke of her desire to add a son to their family of five.
On Twitter, Leah often posts mysterious tweets, such as, “Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time.” and “This is one battle I will NOT back down from, and the bitterness to come will not be on my hands,” which appear to hint at relationship trouble. Then, she clarifies that her marriage is okay by saying things like, “Jeremy and I are perfectly fine. Promise.”
Janelle and Nathan
Evans and Griffith dealt with relationship issues as well, most of which were based on Griffith’s alcohol use.
As the couple awaited the birth of their son, Griffith was partying and drinking too much, but once their son, Kaiser, arrived last month, Nathan refocused his life and appears to have evolved into the perfect partner for Evans. He is even considering adopting her first child, Jace.
Kailyn and Javi
At the beginning of season 5B, Kailyn Lowry and her husband, Javi Marroquin, were seen struggling with the addition of their son, Lincoln. For Kailyn, having two kids was a big change, and the added stress was toxic for her marriage.
After addressing the problem with Javi, Kailyn considered couple’s counseling, and while fans have yet to find out if they take that route, Kailyn opened up about her marriage earlier this month, confirming that divorce was not something she and Marroquin would consider.
“Divorce is not an option for us,” Kailyn revealed to “Life & Style” on July 10. “When you have a newborn, things change in your marriage. I made my vows to him that I would fight for my marriage. I want fans to learn: Work things out with your significant other and don’t fight with them about things you can’t control. Choose your battles.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea Houska remains single and focused on her career, as her daughter’s father, Adam Lind, continues his ventures in the dating scene.
After welcoming his second child, Paislee Lind, with Taylor Halbur, Lind moved on with another woman, single mother Jessica Nicole, and the pair is reportedly living together.
