Kim Kardashian & Kanye WestAre they, aren't they? That is most definitely the hot question of the day, as everyone is dying to know whether or not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are married.

At the end of last week, there were reports flying around saying the two of them were tying the knot in a small, private ceremony at Bruce Jenner's house over the weekend. And honestly, it would've made sense for them to go ahead and make things legal, because in France, you need to reside in the country for 40 days prior to getting married. (But if they're already husband and wife, they'll obviously dodge that hurdle.)

I mean, it would really suck for them to go all out for their May 24 shindig in Paris and not even be a legit married couple afterward, so they probably should've tied the knot beforehand.

But here's where things get even more confusing. According to a source who talked to People, Kim and Kanye did NOT get married this weekend. I guess they'll just have to settle for the May 24 ceremony even if it won't actually make them husband and wife?

The photo above was taken as the two of them arrived at their apartment in New York City last night, so they clearly have a few more obligations to fulfill before heading over to France. And even if they jetted off to Paris today and stayed there until the big day, they're still well out of the 40-day window. Maybe their lavish, over-the-top nuptials will really wind up being just for show (and for whatever magazine they sell the photos to ...).

Technically they still do have plenty of time to marry in the U.S. before the 24th rolls around. Though considering how busy their schedules are and how many last-minute details they probably need to get in order, there may not be time for a trip to the courthouse.

Hmm. For people who love the spotlight as much as Kim and Kanye do, they're doing the best they can to keep their wedding plans a mystery. And with 19 more days to go until the 24th arrives, I'm sure this isn't the last time we'll be confused as to what their relationship status really is.

Do you think Kim and Kanye got married?
