What if “Kimye” gets a divorce? Last weekend marked one of the most anticipated weddings of the decade, second perhaps only to the Royal wedding. Kim Kardashian had a royal wedding of her own in Florence, Italy where she tied the knot to the father of Kim’s nearly year old daughter, Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian is no stranger to the altar, this marriage marks her third. Most could not help but be informed of her very public divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. However, it seems that Kim may have finally gotten this whole marriage thing right this time around. Kim and Kanye have known each other for over nine years, a lifetime in the Kardashian dating world. Kim knew Kris Humphries for a little over a year before they had tied the knot.
While pictures and details of the lavish affair are beginning to find themselves in the media, there has been no word yet as to a prenuptial agreement between Kim and Kanye. It is safe to assume that both Kim and Kanye would want to take steps to protect themselves in case this fairytale romance did not end with happily ever after.
There are certainly mixed feelings about Kim Kardashian and the infamous Kardashian clan. However, perhaps we can all learn something from the new Mrs. Kanye West. A prenuptial agreement can protect you whether you end up with Prince Charming or the frog. “Prenups” define who is liable for what, who is getting what and when, if anything at all in the event of a divorce. They can clear up any misconceptions from the beginning so there are no misunderstandings or unnecessary litigation later if the marriage does not work.
