Kim Kardashian Doesn't Deserve to Feel 'Handcuffed' to Kris Humphries

Stuck in Reality 7

kim kardashian kris humphriesKim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' estranged marriage is like the nightmare that just won't end. For us, because we have to listen to the hairy details about how Kris and his lawyers won't give up the ghost on seeking an annulment based on fraud, and as a result, divorce negotiations continue to carry on without any sort of concrete "cut-off." And for them, because, well, despite moving on with other people and wanting nothing to do with the other, they're still friggin' married! Ugh.

As much as I wonder if this dragged out ordeal is some sort of karmic lesson for Kim -- the Universe's way of drilling it into her thick skull that marriage is no joke? -- for the most part, at this point, my heart goes out to her. As it would to any woman who felt "handcuffed" -- as Kim's lawyer, Laura Wasser, put it -- to a man she doesn't love.

Thank goodness we live in a country and a culture where we're free to love whomever we please -- and at least in some states, marry whomever we please! -- and also call it quits whenever we please! As annoying as it is that some people take marriage and divorce far too lightly, there's something to be said for the freedom of being able to end an ill-fit, unwanted marriage.

Because even if the person isn't driving you insane on a regular basis and isn't directly causing you any sort of emotional grief, not being able to fully, officially CUT THE CORD has got to be completely emotionally and mentally exhausting. There's a reason it's called moving on ... Once you're able to fully do that, you're no longer stuck, stalled, standing in place. You get to move forward.

Kanye or no Kanye, those are all things Kim has yet to be able to do thanks to this never-ending battle to be a divorced woman. What a bummer. Fingers crossed Kris gets the message that it's time to let it go, so they can both get on with their lives.  

Do you feel bad for Kim and hope her divorce from Kris gets finalized ASAP?

Kim holds the keys to her own handcuffs as soon as she admits to being a fraud the annulment will be over & she can be free to collect future ex-husbands

No.  And the longer it drags out, it just a way to tell Kris and Kim "FuckYou".  Although it iis cruel for him to  prolong this, Kim sort of deserves it, don't you think?

I think Mrs Humphries should quit her whining and quit cheating on her husband. She might want to forget it ever happened but she's married.

I feel we need to understand that marriage is changing.  From finally recognizing Gay marriage to these types of situations, we need to view marriage in ways that reflect society today and how people are loving each other in ways our parents would have looked down on.  If we had an enlightened view of marriage these people wouldn't be on the news for their failures but for their love and honesty.  It will take some time to get there, but I feel this may help move us to a view of relationships that is based on true understanding of love.

I completely agree with you, growing3kids.  The way I see it marriage is so disposable nowadays. I have friends that are on their second marriage. Marriage isn't about "OH we're the perfect fit, let's get married". It's about accepting your differences and learning to compromise. My fiancee LOVES watching World's Dumbest, Cops, Jerry Springer and other obnoxious shows like that. I prefer Big Bang Theory & the History channel. But we'll watch each other's shows. I think Kim went into this relationship with divorce as a possibility and that can lead to throwing in the towel once the heat starts to rise. Maybe this will teach her that marriage isn't like a shoe that doesn't fit. You can't return it, there's no money back. You're stuck with that person for the rest of your life. At least that's the way I see it.
