Teen Mom 2’s Finale Special was loaded with tears and regrets last night, as Dr. Drew walked Corey and Leah through their painful divorce.
“Having a sick child, few marriages successfully navigate that. Twins, few marriages successfully navigate that. Teen parenting– twice as likely to end in divorce. But it doesn’t mean you have to be a statistic,” Dr. Drew told the couple.
Leah admitted she still loves Corey and would do anything to get him back. But Corey seemed fed up and too frustrated to deal with the situation. He confessed he’s also been suffering from depression at watching their marriage fall apart. We really hope this family can find a way to come together for their girls, especially with the medical challenges ahead.
Dr. Drew is right, most teen parents don’t stay together and it can cause a lot of stresses in other parts of life. Take control and choose not to be one of the 3 in 10 teen girls in the US who get pregnant at least once before age 20. Learn what works and what doesn’t when it comes to preventing pregnancy.
All of the Teen Mom 2 girls said they hope their stories help encourage other girls to protect themselves and use birth control. Kailyn shared that girls come up to her all the time and tell her she made them want to wait to have babies and go to school instead.
Leah said it’s become part of her purpose in life: “If I could prevent just one person from having to go through it—I was going to be a pediatrician, I want other teenagers to be able to set those goals and go for it.”
