Is It Ever Okay to Rush into Marriage? Khloe Kardashian Thinks So

Khloe and Lamar Marriage

Khloe Kardashian famously married Lamar Odom within a month of meeting him, and they will soon celebrate their 3rd anniversary. So how have they managed to make it work?

Some people argue that the sanctity of marriage has been tainted by quickie marriages that lead to faster divorces, especially in Hollywood. Well, Khloe Kardashian is one person who can attest that some rapid courtships can lead to a lasting love like hers to Lamar Odom.

After only 30 days of dating, Khloe and Lamar tied the knot! Although family members like Bruce Jenner were hesitant about the two marrying, Khloe has revealed that her mind was made up and no one could convince her otherwise.

During her interview with Oprah, Khloe admitted it was crazy to get married as quickly as she did.

So, why did Khloe’s marriage last while her big sister Kim‘s came to a screeching halt after 72 days? There is not an exact formula, however one big reason it worked – is intention.

Khloe married for one of the most elusive yet powerful reasons… love. Kim married because she felt societal pressure to become a wife by 30 years old. The middle Kardashian sister was blinded by the fantasy of a beautiful wedding day instead of thinking through the actuality of what marriage is: day in and day out with the same person.

If you are not madly in love with your partner on your wedding day, then the odds of an enduring marriage are low. Love and being in love with your future spouse creates the foundation for any long-term marriage to work. To marry for any other reason like money, family pressure, lust, etc. is undermining the union of marriage and what it stands for.

Kholoe is sick. She is always molesting her sister and brother. Putting her hands down Robs pants. Putting her hands in sister body parts. The girl is a nut. She is fake. Her self esteem is so low. You will see the truth. Poor Lamar everything went down for him when he married that demon. Kholoe is a devil. She put’s on a fake face. Like she told Oprah all those lies. You talk about God Kholoe. but you don’t live Godly. Disrespecting your mother no matter what. Honor your mother and father so that your days may be longer on this earth. Don’t worried about what your mother does. God will deal with her. But your behavior and disrespect towards your mother is disgraceful You need professional help.. So disfuntional. Poor Lamar I feel bad for him. No trust there. Just lies .

Kholoe is such a phony. Lamar cant breath without her right there. She puts on a fake face for the camera. Kholoe does not trust Lamar look at the show. She is always right under him and that is sad.

I moved in with my husband within a week of meeting him, he proposed a week after that and we got married 2 months later. We have now been married 7 years and have a 5 year old daughter and things are still fantastic.

By not being around each other that much….that’s how they make it work.. If he wasn’t a basketball player and on the road a lot and they had to live like us regular folks(9-5 jobs) they would not have lasted this long……oh wait…..she would have never married him if he was regular folk. Word on the street is everything is not as rosy as it seems.

Some relationships it has seemed to work, and some it hasn’t. Depends on the couple.
Happy birthday Khloe!
