Could Leah Messer and her boyfriend, T.R. Dues, be preparing to walk down the aisle? The Teen Mom 2 star and her older boyfriend, who once worked as her personal trainer, have reportedly been dating since June 2015, and living together for nearly the entirety of their relationship, but when it comes to a third marriage, the mother of three isn’t on board.
In December, according to a January 5 report by OK! Magazine, Leah Messer revealed her thoughts on a third marriage, claiming she doesn’t want to get married again.
“I am not getting married and DON’T want to,” Leah Messer reportedly wrote on her Facebook page.

The magazine also noted a recent tweet from Leah Messer, which responded to recent rumors regarding a possible engagement. In the tweet, Leah Messer confirmed she and Dues were definitely not engaged to be married.
Prior to her relationship with Dues, Leah Messer was married to Jeremy Calvert, the father of her youngest daughter, 2-year-old Adalynn. Leah Messer wed Calvert in April 2012, but they split up at the end of 2014. Their break-up occurred after he accused her of cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend, Robbie Kidd, in a number of since-deleted tweets, which also revealed his plans for divorce. Although Leah Messer and Calvert reunited a few times after the allegations were made, their divorce was ultimately finalized in June 2015, around the time news of Leah Messer’s romance with Dues hit the web.
During Leah Messer and Calvert’s marriage, the two were often seen feuding on Teen Mom 2 due to Calvert’s busy career, which often kept him away from home for weeks at a time. Then, when Leah Messer attempted to get Calvert into couples counseling with her, he declined.
Leah Messer’s first marriage, which was to Corey Simms, was also plagued with issues, and after just months, Leah Messer admitted to cheating and the couple called it quits. Since then, Corey Simms filed for full custody of their twins amid rumors of a possible addiction to prescription pills, and he was awarded primary custody of the girls last October.

Corey Simms “was awarded primary custody, effective immediately” on Oct. 13, a source told In Touch Weekly last year. “[Leah Messer] only gets the girls on the weekends now,” a family insider added, claiming her behavior worsened after Simms’ custody filing in 2014.
“[Leah Messer]’s really been screwing up since then, so Corey took her back to court. The judge looked at the girls’ school records, which show that they’ve been late for school, and made the change in custody.”
In addition, claimed the source, a recent incident of allegedly negligent parenting may result in a second custody battle for Leah Messer.
“Everyone is very worried about Addie. She recently wandered out of the house while [Leah Messer] was distracted,” claimed the family insider. “Thankfully, a police officer found Addie and brought her back home. If [Jeremy] can find [a job] nearby, he’ll go for the same custody arrangement that Corey did.”
Although both of her ex-husbands have spoken of her possible drug problem, Leah Messer has denied being addicted to anything a number of times.
Leah Messer and her family, along with her co-stars, Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, and Kailyn Lowry, will return to MTV later this year for Teen Mom 2 season seven. A premiere date has not yet been set for the upcoming installment, which began production at the end of last year.
