Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are reportedly on the brink of separating. I guess this isn't totally shocking news, given everything that has purportedly gone down between the two lately, what with Lamar's rumored cheating and drug problems, but things sound worse than ever, if that's even possible. A friend told People magazine:
She wants to save her marriage, but Lamar doesn't and he's not in his right mind to do so. So what can Khloé do?
Indeed, what can she do? There is only so much one can do if one person doesn't want to help save a marriage. It takes two to be married.
Another "longtime friend" of the Kardashians told the mag:
I believe Lamar is the one who wants out [of the marriage]. It's not looking good.
And apparently, Khloe had no idea about Lamar's drug history when she married him. He had reportedly confessed to drug dalliances in the past. Truth be told, even if Khloe knew, she probably would have married him anyway.
Most of us want to give people we love the benefit of the doubt if they say they've changed and seem like they've changed. But certainly Khloe and Lamar's quickie one-month courtship period couldn't have clued Khloe into Lamar's deep-rooted problems.
We won't know for sure what is happening with this duo until they speak publicly about their marriage, but marriages come back from all kinds of disasters. Who knows, maybe this one will bounce back.
But it takes much more than love to make a marriage work. It takes commitment, respect, and two people who are on the same page about their values, goals, and how they want to live their lives. It doesn't sound like Khloe and Lamar have that going for them right now.
Given that the two supposedly haven't spoken to each other in days -- and it sounds like when they do speak, it's only for Khloe to issue ultimatums about Lamar's behavior -- they already are separated. The only question is whether divorce is on the horizon.
Do you think the pair will divorce?
