Although Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are similar in so many ways -- they love themselves more than life itself; they enjoy leather pants; they frequent gay Paree -- there is one way in which they're very different. Kim loves sharing every private detail of her life, where Kanye doesn't.
In a new interview with UK magazine Fabulous, Kim said: "I'm definitely more of a recluse since I was pregnant. But I haven't necessarily decided to hold myself back, it's just preparing myself for respecting the privacy of my child and my boyfriend. We live different lives, but I love being open. That's who I've always been. That will never change because that is who I am."
Now. While it's great for both parties of a couple retain their own, unique identity and not morph into one, boring blob, the whole "we live different lives" thing could be a problem. A big one, actually.
Valuing privacy and being an open book are two fundamental differences. Kim's entire life and livelihood is based on "being open", where Kanye's is not. (He may be a douche, but the man has actual talent.) If Kanye doesn't want his child and/or family to be a media spectacle, as Kim's entire life the past few years has been, that's going to be a problem. And vice versa -- if Kim wants to remain in the public eye, it's going to be a point of contention.
In relationships, it's good to have differences. There are few things more nauseating than when couples are exactly the same in every way. But when it comes to the big stuff -- the life stuff -- you should be on the same page. Because there's no way in hell that stuff isn't going to come around to bite your relationship in the ass. It literally is inevitable.
Kim and Kanye haven't been together for a long time, so I'm sure right now, they're all: "Oh, we'll figure it out. It'll be fine." But I'm speaking from experience here when I say: No, it won't. You need to get the big stuff out in the open and deal with it in the beginning. Otherwise, there's only one way the relationship can really go. And that's not good when a baby's involved.
Do you think Kim and Kanye will run into problems?
