Leah Calvert and her husband Jeremy Calvert have been struggling in their marriage during the fifth season of "Teen Mom 2." Since Jeremy is often away for weeks, and even months, at a time while he continues his career as a pipe-layer, Leah is often home with her kids, struggling to communicate with her husband.
At times, the two go days without speaking, and typically, when Jeremy arrives back home, it takes him a while to get re-adjusted to the hustle and bustle of life as a husband, father, and step-father with Leah and her three girls.
The stress of having him away added with the stress of him not being a part of the family, even when he is home, has been troubling for Leah, and as a result, she wanted Jeremy to attend marriage counseling with her in hopes at getting their relationship back on track.
Unfortunately, Jeremy wasn't open to it.
In a sneak peek at the upcoming episode of "Teen Mom 2," obtained by Wetpaint Entertainment on March 12, Leah is seen chatting with her husband about the idea.
"I didn't mention counseling to make it sound like our relationship was bad, we're doing it to understand each other's feelings and make our marriage stronger … you just don't wanna do it, you'd feel less of a man if you do it, which is wrong," Leah explains to Jeremy in the clip.
Still, he wasn't seeing how counseling could help.
"I don't think I need 'Billy Bob' down in Charleston telling me what's wrong, or what we need to do," he shot back.
