The fact that Kim Kardashian is getting a divorce after 72 days of marriage upsets me. No, not because i thought they’d be together forever… but because half the world watched “Kim’s fairytale wedding” which was clearly not followed by a “fairytale” marriage. Not that there is just thing as a “fairytale” marriage, marriage is hard, its work, it takes time and constant consideration of your spouse’s feeling and if people aren’t prepared and mature enough to work hard at a marriage, they shouldn’t be getting married.
I’m upset because unfortunately, Kim seems to be one of the largest influences in the entertainment world, and since the entertainment world influences OUR world, OUR thoughts and OUR actions… she is helping divorce and naive marriages become more acceptable. It seems that she worked harder to make her wedding day perfect than she did to make her marriage work. THAT is why it upsets me.
Wedding days are beautiful, exciting and full of love… marriages are hard work, they take patience and selflessness. If you’re not ready for the MARRIAGE you shouldn’t be preparing for the wedding day.
* I don’t mean to pick on Kim Kardashian, clearly i dont know her personally, she could be a very delightful lady. Also, i know she isn’t the only person who has had a 72 day marriage, but because this is what she is becoming MORE famous for, i wanted to share my opinion!
