Kanye West Says Kim Can Forget About Marriage

Kanye West Says Kim Can Forget About Marriage

The latest in the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West saga is that she can forget about any hope she may have previously had about marriage. Apparently West was overheard speaking with some friends recently and he said that marriage is an outdated, obsolete institution and that he does not wish to feel pressured into marriage with Kim K. “just because they have a baby together.” He wants a “modern” relationship.

What is a “modern” relationship, exactly? Does West get to now define what is modern and what is outdated? Some say “modern” is code for “open relationship.” Is there anything wrong with that though? While some would say there is, others would say that whatever two consenting adults want to do within the confines of their private romantic relationship is no one else’s business but their own.

But how does Kim Kardashian feel about having to forget marriage to Kanye? She has one previous failed marriage, which some people still claim was a publicity stunt-to Chris Humphries-that lasted all of a hot minute. Since this pregnancy which resulted in Baby North was most likely unplanned, it should come as no surprise to her that Kanye is not ready to tie the knot, and that he may never be.

Previously, the couple has been the subject of tons of engagement rumors, but those rumors will most likely never come to pass. Even if they did, who wants to enter a bet that the marriage wouldn’t last? Is it possible that Kanye may be on to something with his assessment that marriage is passé’? Maybe more celebrities ought to follow his lead. It could surely result in less heartbreak and most definitely put some celebrity divorce lawyers in the poorhouse. (Would that really be so terrible or could we allow ourselves to feel a little bit of schadenfreuden about it?)

Perhaps Kim K. and Kanye could have an open relationship, just as it seems West would like. Other celebrity couples who have tried out this arrangement seem to fare a lot better than those who go for monogamy. For example, it is thought by many to be an open “secret” that the much-beloved Smiths (that’s Will and Jada by the way,) have had an open arrangement within their marriage for many years, and they’re still going strong.

Another out and proud polyamorous starlet is Tilda Swinton, who makes no effort whatsoever to keep her relationship(s) status(es) secret. She’s got a husband and a boyfriend. The husband stays at home a lot and they’ve been married for a long time. She travels extensively with the boyfriend, and the three are one big happy family. Everyone is on the same page and it works well for them.

Another celebrity couple long rumored to have an open relationship is power celebs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The rumors got started mostly because Angelina went on record saying that she does think monogamy is essential in a relationship and that she and Brad “don’t restrict each other” in that regard. She had previously been linked romantically with female model Jenny Shimizu. When Jolie was married to Billy Bob Thornton, it was reported that she and Shimizu were still involved.

Kim Kardashian can forget marriage to Kanye, but maybe, since he is so keen on a “modern” relationship, she can get a boyfriend or two on the side. It’s working for others and it can work for Kimye too.

    And it’s “Kris Humphries”, not “Chris Humphries” They made a big deal about how his family spelled Chris with a “K” as coincidental to the Kardashians being obsessed with all things “K”. “Kris Jenner”, “Kourtney”, “Kim”, “Khole”, “Kendall”, “Kylie”, “Kris Humphries, “K”anye West. On and on. Piss poor editing on this article, even for a celeb blog.

    She’s had 2 failed marriages. For as much air time Kim Kardashian commands, everyone knows Kris Humphries wasn’t her first husband. Kim Kardashian ran off to Las Vegas and eloped with music producer Damon Thomas when she was 19. She was married to Damon from 2000-2004.

    Your a irresponsible part of the media perpetuating this message in the era of STDS becoming resistant to antibiotics and new forms of STIS/STDS are coming out and people are dying and getting hurt even with condoms. Why even have a relationship or call it one if your gonna sleep with so many people? Why even build up all of that complexity that comes from monogamy that so many people still enjoy. Why not just have friends with benefits do your own thing and call it a day instead of making some arrangement that seems like a waste of time. I dont think any of what people do in their private lives is my business nor do I judge. I like the idea of monogamy and marriage but that aside why even call it something its not and waste time setting up all these scenarios in your life when you can just live it freely. This article is badly worded and doesnt express a good case for your argument or the most rational or logical way to do something it explores something briefly without much though and poor execution on the way to live a simply, happy and product life 🙂
