Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom's 'Trial Separation' Could Just Be Prolonging the Pain

khloe kardashianWhile her sister Kim is nesting with Kanye, and Kourtney is trying to make things work with her baby daddy Scott Disick, Khloe Kardashian may be calling it quits before baby with husband Lamar Odom. At least that's what Life & Style is reporting this week. And we all know how much we can trust tabloids, but ... they do seem to have quite a few details on the sitch.

Apparently, Lamar is soooo fed up with living the Kardashian life that takes place in a constant KLIEG light! He's reportedly been partying like crazy and even having flings with other women, and it's crushing Khloe. Then, adding insult to injury, he was set to spent a few weeks on the road, and he allegedly asked Khloe to "back off and quit smothering him." Enter the rumored "trial separation." Eek!


Wasn't it just last week they were publicly raving about their "intense" sex life? Oh well -- that could definitely be deemed defensive ...

At any rate, a little time apart and some space never hurt a couple. I actually feel like it's a healthy way to go when you need to clear your mind and regain a sense of gratitude for your relationship. But I'm not quite sure that's what's going on here. Instead, it sounds like Lamar is just ducking and hiding. If he really wants to call it quits, then man up and separate! Or decide you want to work things out and go to counseling.

A "trial separation" sounds way too wishy-washy. It sounds like a pre-separation, when you know a separation is just a trial divorce. It's delaying the inevitable. Sad but true.

Maybe what some couples need is to delay the inevitable, because it's too horrible a reality to quickly process and accept. But ultimately, when it comes to ending a relationship that's already DOA, it's probably better to just cut the cord. I know we're always worrying that people are throwing in the towel on marriage too easily these days, but the opposite extreme -- putting off a necessary divorce and playing passive-aggressive games -- isn't healthy either.

Anyway, for Khloe's sake, I hope they really are having more intense sex than any supposed "trial separations." But if the latter is the truth, something tells me these two won't be able to keep that a secret for long at all. And maybe that's for the best.

Do you believe that Khloe and Lamar are on the rocks?
