LAURA's LOVE ADVICE: Should You Marry Someone You've Only Known For A Few Months Like Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries May Do?

Kim and her man have been dating for just over three months. Is planning a wedding so soon too much too fast?

You’ve got to hand it to Kim Kardashian: the girl goes after what she wants. According to OK! magazine, what the reality starlet wants is a wedding to new boyfriend Kris Humphries — and she may just get her wish. But should YOU think about tying the knot with a guy you barely know, or can a whirlwind romance be a good thing?

Kim, 30, is allegedly planning a grand ceremony to rival Prince William’s nuptials. She’s fantasizing about the cake, the dress (Vera Wang) and her high-profile celebrity guests (Jennifer Lopez, Fergie, Nicole Richie, etc.). But fantasizing about your wedding is one thing — and getting married to your boyfriend of three months is quite another.

If Kim is simply talking about the day she’d like to have in the long run, regardless of who the groom may be, that’s perfectly fine. Most women dream about their big day — where they’d have the ceremony, what dress they’d wear, how their ex-boyfriends would react. But actually taking that step to say ‘I do’ to a guy you don’t know could be a big mistake.

Unfortunately for Kim, she’s got her little sister Khloe as an example of a quickie marriage that worked. Khloe and hubby Lamar Odom were wed after a month of dating — and nearly 18 months later, are still happy and in love. But Khloe is the exception, not the rule. The world is flabbergasted that her marriage has managed to last so long. Given Kim’s patchy track record, there’s no guarantee that her own relationship with the four-years-younger pro baller would last.

Maybe Khloe and Lamar will last. Maybe Kim and Kris will. Who knows? But my guess is that neither party knows the other well enough to sustain a marriage. In your case, I wouldn’t rush into anything. Get to know your guy first.

Get to know what makes him tick and the things that tick you off about him. Live with him first to make sure you could handle being married to him. There’s no need to plan your big day simply because you’ve always wanted to wear a wedding dress. Why hurry love?

This is another BS story. Kim and her mom Kris Jenner have already shot down this story. OK! Magazine is a tabloid and they run BS cover stories all the time. OK! Magazine ran a story last year that the Kardashian family had invited Kanye West to spend the Christmas Holiday with them. They also ran another story six months after Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush had broken up that Kris Jenner had reunited the two and they were planning a huge wedding. Do you get the picture? OK! Magazine’s story is BS, all of their stories are false and this site is lame for giving advice on a fake story.

I met my husband on Boxing day one year and married him in September the following year (9 months). we’re happily married 6 years later. If you know yourself and know what you want, you’ll know he’s the one.
