Kim Kardashian Not Getting Engaged to Kanye West & That’s Smart

Kim and KanyeCould Kim Kardashian be all growed up now? Well, yes, the star is 32 now, not exactly a naif. But she hasn't always acted like a grownup. It was only a year ago that she married a guy she didn't know very well, basically for ratings, and then divorced him in less time than it takes most people to arrange a second date. But now she's been dating Kanye West for a year, and she's made it clear she wants babies, and we know she likes a good wedding, so what's stopping the two from getting engaged? Believe it or not, it could be a little thing called ... maturity. (!!??!!)


When asked about all of those wedding planning rumors, Kim told US Weekly, "I'm still married technically." Hm, that doesn't have to stop one from getting engaged, but Kim isn't like most divorced women. Most divorced women don't get treated like they shot a koala bear in the eye with a bow and arrow when they file for divorce. And Kim apparently hasn't forgotten any of it.

A source told the mag:

After the backlash from ending her 72-day marriage with Kris, Kim would never get engaged until everything was properly handled. There are no wedding plans, period. She and Kanye are taking their time. That's the truth.

Also, just speculating here, could it be that Kim has maybe realized that just because you have a fairytale wedding, it doesn't mean your marriage is a fairytale? Compare Kim's TV fantasy wedding with the reality of the marriage as we saw it. Quite a difference, eh?

Says Kim: "I feel more confident and more wise after this year. It's like you get to a place and you just know what you want."

I don't find reason to compliment Kim Kardashian very often, but this time I will. If she's not hopped up on engagement and baby crazy and is going to wait until her divorce is final, then she may be growing up indeed. Just a little. At least for today.

Do you think Kim is growing up?
