Kim Kardashian Changes Her Views on Marriage and Babies
Kim Kardashian is the queen of reality TV and a frequent topic of gossip rags and TV gossip shows. From her infamous sex tape to the 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, it seems that being in the spotlight is something she loves doing. The reality star also has had a change of heart when it comes to marriage and babies.
When Kim’s older sister Kourtney became pregnant with her first son, Mason, Kim relates to Cosmopolitan in the April issue, “I was like, ‘You’re not married! How could you do this?’ I was really firm and strict.” When her sister said that she did not want to get married, Kim had a hard time understanding until she realized, according to her, that Kourtney was happier than Kim was with her own life. She goes onto say this about new relationships, “[Now] I say give it a good six months before you commit. Feelings change, even if it seems so lustful.”
Kim who is pregnant with her first child, with rap sensation Kanye West, is ready to settle down and put her past mistakes behind her. Though she is not set on getting married right away to West saying, “This is where I probably always should have been … [marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don’t have this sense of urgency about it.” Of course, she is still married to Kris Humphries, a court hearing on their divorce is scheduled in May, and she is busy with both of her shows on the E! Network but she says she is going to slow down before the baby arrives, telling Cosmo, “2013 for me is about scaling back. I want to focus on the few projects that I'm super passionate about and not spread myself too thin.”
If I am being snarky, which I can be sometimes, I think that Kim does not have to worry about having a baby out of wedlock. I mean she is still technically married and it seems that Humphries is ready for a battle so who knows if her divorce will be final before her baby arrives in July. In all seriousness though, it is interesting to see how people’s opinions change based on their own circumstances. It is easy to judge someone who gets pregnant out of wedlock until you are faced with the same situation. I am happy for her that she seems pleased with how her life has turned out, and I hope that she can resolve her divorce before the baby comes. I know – for me – having a baby before marriage was not an option, but I do not think badly of women who do; the most important thing is providing your baby a loving home and Kim seems capable of doing just that.
