Leah Calvert and her husband aren't doing well in their marriage on the currently airing episodes of "Teen Mom 2." Leah claims things are hard and unmanageable at home with Jeremy and Jeremy is too busy with his demanding career to tend to the remainder of what needs to be done around their home.

Although the majority of fans have criticized Leah for being so ungrateful and complaining about her husband working (which he does in order to provide financially for Leah and her three daughters), others slammed her for being needy and relying on Jeremy for her financial and emotional stability.

On Twitter, after Tuesday night's episode aired, Leah met the harsh criticism from fans.

One fan wrote, "You need to grow up...you need to learn to be an independent woman and stop needing a man to lean on all the time."

Since Leah quit both her job and college shortly after she and Jeremy began dating, she's often criticized for her lack of motivation when it comes to her own life. Instead, she's relying on Jeremy to take care of her and allow her to stay home with her kids -- and complaining all the while.

In response to the fan calling her needy, Leah claimed she just misses her husband. "It's not about needing a man," she explained on March 19. "It's the man you devote your life too and just want them even when they aren't around."

Either way, Leah should realize how blessed she is that Jeremy works as hard as he does. If he wasn't in her life, she would be forced to get a job and juggle that with raising her three kids.
