Is Getting Engaged Six Months Into A Relationship Like Kim Kardashian Did Too Soon?

Kim hasn’t even known Kris Humphries for a year — and they’re engaged! Will it last?

The Kardashian sisters don’t mess around when they find ‘the one.’ Middle sis Kim, 30, is following in 26-year-old Khloé‘s footsteps by becoming engaged to a guy she’s known for a nanosecond. The sexy reality has guys around the world weeping after officially becoming engaged to NBA player Kris Humphries May 18. But is their relationship moving too fast to last?

If you’ll remember correctly, Kim swore off of dating for a year after failed relationships with athletes Reggie Bush and Miles Austin. Her vow didn’t last long; she started seeing the 26-year-old New Jersey Nets forward in December and the rest, as they say, is history.

Although the two have only been dating for half a year, Kris’ proposal was pretty planned out, as if he had been thinking about it for some time. Prepare to ‘aw': he was waiting for her on bended knee in her L.A. home with “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” written out in rose petals and presented her with a 20.5-carat diamond Lorraine Schwartz ring.

The couple is really rushing things now: according to Kim, they’re planning a summer wedding. As in, summer of 2011, not 2012. Why are they hurrying love, and can their quickie engagement/marriage actually work?

The Kardashians have apparently been blessed with some sort of magic that makes fast relationships last. No one ever thought Khloé and hubby Lamar Odom, who got engaged within a month of knowing each other, would last, and nearly two years later they’re still together and happier than ever. So do Kim and Kris have a shot at lasting love? Apparently.

But, as I always say, there are exceptions, and there are rules. The Kardashian sisters are exceptions; the rest of us are the rule. Rushing headfirst into a marriage when you know next to nothing about the groom is just asking for trouble. Sure, you’re in love, but how do you know you can live together without throttling one another? How do you know if there are things about one another that you won’t learn to hate in the long run?

Yes, love at first sight does exist — just make sure you can have a real relationship with your fantasy man before you say ‘I do.’

That was one of the most romantic proposals Ive ever heard of. Maybe Kims addicted to romantic encounters and men who cater to her ego? Are you or your ex addicted to romance? -Why not contact Psychic Seloma to find out…psychicpowernetwork.com

i have to say that even if u know a guy 4 yrs they can BAM change in a heartbeat! U never REALLY know someone… sorry u just dont know what people are capable of. I think if they have chemistry and feel as if this is the love of their life than 6 months is fine.. by the time they get married it’ll almost be a year, I love how people CRAP on others happiness on this site. Jealous much?????????

For normal, everyday, non-celebrity people..yes you can get engaged after dating a short amount of time and survive. Dated 3.5 months, got engaged, married by the 10th month (not pregnant either)…been married 23 years this August. For Kim and Kris it MIGHT work, but she plays musical BFs…I hope this is right for her and for Kris.

I dam sure wouldn’t marry someone unless I knew them very well &/or lived with them. They’re on different sides of the country, they haven’t really spent much time together at all. But hey, it’s her life, if she wants the ugly dude, have at it. He’s a youngster with a wild past – recently.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they announce she’s pregnant right after the wedding. What hoes won’t do for attention & money.

wow that’s really a disgusting thing to say and it really says more about you. Have you even watched the show? if you have you can see how sweet they are and they care more about family than anything else.
