What now, Leah?
Leah Messer has come a long way since her humble beginnings on 16 and Pregnant, but every now and then she says something that makes people do a double take.
Even though she’s got things together now, this recent comment has people questioning just what her outlook on her family really is.
Come A Long Way
Like many members of the Teen Mom cast, Leah Messer has some dark times in her past. In addition to getting caught dozing off while she held a baby, she also lost custody of her twins because she couldn’t get them to school within the required time.
Since then, she’s gone to rehab and cleaned up her act. Nowadays, she’s one of the more mellow members of the cast.
Husband and Kids
A few nights ago, Leah shook things up when she reposted a quote that had people scratching their heads.
The quote, which came from a Christian life coach, read, “Ladies, in marriage your husband comes first, then your child. As a single mother who isn’t married, of course you shouldn’t put any man before them, but that changes when you vow to be with a man. He comes first as your partner, provider, and protector.”
If fans had any hope that Leah was having second thoughts about what she said, her comments on the Instagram post made it clear she still agreed with it despite the hate.
She wrote, “So I see this created quite the stir over on my bro @gentlemenhood’s page. I don’t see what the problem is, the scriptures say that a man leaves his mother and father and becomes one with his wife. If you spend your marriage holding the kids first what will you have in terms of a healthy marriage when they leave to become one with their mate? This isn’t saying treat your children like crap, neglect them or not give them a kidney first if it came down to your child and the husband. This Isn’t saying if he’s abusive/mistreating the children it should just be okay because ‘he comes first’, no. This is laying out the family structure God gave us. This is making sure the kids grow up understanding how to operate in their role as a parent and husband/wife one day. As a single mother I get it.
