Kim Kardashian Should Listen to Her Mom & Not Marry Kanye

kim kardashian wedding photoIt's not crazy to think that every single move the Kardashians make or word that they say is calculated for strategic PR purposes. At the very least, momager Kris Jenner seems to be constantly thinking about what Kim -- her key player, her Gypsy Rose -- should be doing or shouldn't be doing to promote the family brand. And apparently she's arrived at the conclusion that Kim shouldn't marry Kanye.

A source tells gossip columnist Naughty But Nice Rob, "Kris is encouraging the couple to NOT get married. After Kim’s last, 72-day marriage, Kris feels like the Kardashian brand does not need another marriage disaster on its hands. She is telling them to take their time, to really think about it. A third divorce for Kim is not something Kris wants for her daughter or her family business." Ha, wow! And we all thought she'd most likely be pushing Kim down the aisle all over again -- guess not!

The source goes on to explain:

There is no doubt that everyone in the family wants to see Kim happy, but at the same time they are assuring her that she doesn’t need to be married to find happiness. Kim adores Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, which is why her mom is using them as an example of how you can be a solid, committed couple, without having to say ‘I do.’ Kris originally used Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell as an example of a great couple that never got married, but Kim had no idea who these two were!

Oh please. I don't buy that last part one bit. (And it makes me question the validity of the rest of the statement.) Kim grew up in Hollywood and most likely knows Kate Hudson, so I'm SURE she knows who Goldie and Kurt are. Sooo, that's annoying. But at any rate, if this is true, I agree with Kris in that they should take their time and there's absolutely no reason Kimye have to tie the knot. Her rumored approach to convincing Kim of that isn't too shabby either. They could quite easily follow in other celeb couples' footsteps, unmarried with kids and perfectly happy without involving the law, which Kim knows by now can be a huge pain in the ass to contend with if you want to call it quits! 

Still, the part about a third divorce looking bad for the Kardashian brand is ridic. Of course it wouldn't look good. (But who does Kris think they are -- the freakin' Cleavers? Pfft!) Might I remind her, for years, her daughter has said she idolizes Elizabeth Taylor. She thinks she's following in Liz's footsteps with her love-hate relationship with fame, love of jewelry, love of LOVE, etc. Thus, a third, fourth, fifth divorce would be right in line with that storyline! So maybe she should just back away and let Kim marry Kanye, eh? Because, really, what's the worst that could happen? For better or worse, people are still going to want to read about Kim's roller coaster love life.

Do you agree with Kris on this one?

I think that if they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together, then they should think about marriage.  Maybe think about it for a year or two and then if they feel the same way and have a plan to make a marriage work then get married.  They should not get married just because they have a baby together or just because that iswhat Kim thinks she should do.  Marriage is a big deal and should be treated like one.

I saw the story on Naughty But Nice blog and I immediately thought it was fabricated based on the Goldie Hawn comment. It is very easy to fabricate stories on the Kardashian clan, this one here is a no brainer.

I've been with my boyfriend for 4 years now, he's the father of my 2 boys and we have no plans for marriage anytime soon. We are not even engaged. I got married when I was 19 and divorced when I was 21(we had no kids we didn't own anything together so it was easy) I'm 26 now and I learned from that experience. We are commited to each other, we don't need a piece of paper to prove that.

But yet she threw a fit and was completely embarassed by Kourtney not marrying Scott?

With her hips and his head each one of them should marry anyone that could tolerate them. Mommy Kris is afraid her baby wont get a big enough payday for her to get her cut of. All the new pics of Kimmie are so virginal and innocent. Does she really think anyone will forget R Jay and her hitting it in her Vivid video. What a joke. Her legs are on hinges. KW needs a paternaty test. The world has not only seen her hoho but probably been in it as well! What a legacy for your baby ----

Kim you are grown do what you want to do. I have kids to but they are grown they have to make there own decision. An I think everyone has done things that we should have not, that's how we learn, sometime the hard way. Most mother are like that but we have to let grown folk make there own way.

 I am so glad that i take this with gain of salt, i don't care what people say bad about me because they are not God and He has the last say believe it. Kim looks happy to me so go for it girl. Clean up your own back yard first before you clean up Kim's or anybody else.

Kim marrying Kanye is a big fat joke. She has no idea what it means to be in a committed relationship or to really love someone other than her self. And Kanye is just an Idiot.
