Sister Kourtney Kardashian has never married, Scott Disick, the father of her two children and sets a dangerous precedent for Kim and Kanye.
The mere fact that she’s the mother of his child may not be enough to get them to the altar. It hasn’t for Kourtney.
There also appear to be a lot of business reasons weighing against the marriage, like the ones that ultimately sunk Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries. Both she and Kanye have substantial fortunes and as we all know love and business don’t mix well.
Say what you will, but their relationship is questionable at best. During Kim’s pregnancy, Kanye has been a virtual no-show. Some tabloids have speculated that the relationship was never more than a business proposition to begin with and Kanye still strays.
Kim rejected Kanye’s overtures in the past, before finally hooking up with him following the end of her 72-day marriage fiasco. At the time she was desperate for a relationship–any relationships–to repair her damaged image.
But at least one big factor is weighing in favor of a marriage– Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce. The two are one of entertainment’s reigning power couples and Kayne looks up to his powerful friend. Plus, Beyonce will never allow them to be a part of her inner circle as long as they’re unmarried.
Kim’s marriage ended unceremoniously on Friday (Apr. 19). The settlement terms have not been announced, but the development is a major victory for the reality star. Humphries had accused her of marrying him for TV ratings and was seeking an annulment on the grounds of fraud.
The couple reportedly had an iron-clad pre-nup agreement, which may still be in force. But the victory will be hollow if Kim remains unmarried.
