Remember that time Kim Kardashian was married to Kris Humphries? Yeah, so does she. And remember that time everyone knew it wasn't going to last? Yeah, so did she. In a new interview, Kim admitted that she knew her marriage to Kris was going to fail all along.

On Sunday's episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kim told Andy Cohen that she married the NBA player for the wrong reasons. "I just thought, 'Holy sh-t, I'm 30 years old, I better get this together. I better get married,'" the Selfish author said. "I think a lot of girls do go through that where they freak out thinking they're getting old and have to figure it out, all their friends are having kids. It was more of that situation."

You have to respect Kim for admitting something so difficult, and she's certainly right: Many women do feel pressure to get married when they're in their 30s.

Kim revealed to Cohen that on her honeymoon with Kris, she started to get the feeling that their relationship wasn't going to last all that long. Kim famously filed for divorce from Kris 72 days after they got married (on TV), and of course became the butt of many a joke afterward. 

Now, though, years later (and after celebrating her third anniversary with Kanye West), the mom of two is at a place where she can talk about her relationship with Kris publicly and take part of the blame for the demise of their marriage. 

In the beginning, Kim was embarrassed that her relationship with Kris didn't last, but as anyone who ever saw the two of them interact on Keeping Up With the Kardashians can attest to, they were not meant for each other.  

Sometimes, you have to kiss a few toads before meeting your Prince Charming, and Kris, so to speak, was one of Kim's toads.

Now let's just hope that she and Prince Kanye live happily ever after.
