First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage… Then Comes ‘What The *&$@! Did I Do That For?”
Incase you’re living in a bubble, then you would have known that Kim Kardashian just got divorced just 72 days after she got married. I know what you’re thinking – “You mean I just wasted four hours of my life watching ‘Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event’ for no reason!!” Oh… you mean you didn’t watch it?
Call me crazy, but I think that Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries because she really did love him. Or did she just love… love? Kim is what I like to call ‘A hopeless romantic who is desperately wanting to get married.’ She’s one of those girls who’s dreamed of her fairytale wedding ever since she was little, and now that she’s hit 30-years-old, she suddenly realized she has to get married! It doesn’t matter to who, but she just wants a wedding and she wants it now! There’s no way in hell she’s going to be the last of her friends and family to get hitched. So, she found a guy that she liked and probably though it was do-able.
Hey, it’s happens to the best of us. But clearly, after only just a few months of dating, you don’t know someone well enough to want to spend the rest of your life with them. Maybe it used to work in the 1900’s, but not in today’s society. People are more complex now, but yet fall into “I want to get married because it’s the next step” phase. And then come around and realize one fine day… “What the fuck did I do that for?” … Get divorced and then do it all over again.
Sure, being single is fun, but at the end of the day, all a girl really wants is to find her prince charming and settle down. Kim represents ‘that girl who’s longing to get married’ that lives inside all of us whether we like it or not. But sometimes you just have sit back and wait for it to happen.
