Should You Cut Your Honeymoon Short If You Have Work Obligations Like Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries?

Kim was a presenter at the VMAs: is that reason enough to end her fairytale honeymoon?

When it comes to love, Kim Kardashian moves fast. She was engaged to now-husband Kris Humphries within six months of meeting and married within eight months. Is it any wonder that her honeymoon was a mere three days long? She had good reason for her whirlwind romance: she simply couldn’t wait to legally be without her man any longer. However, her honeymoon lasted a mere three days because she had to get back to work on her reality show. Is this a solid reason to cut one of the most special times of her married life short?

After tying the knot in a lavish, $10 million ceremony on Aug. 20, Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, waited three days before jetting off on an Italian honeymoon. Although most couples take at least a week — if not two — to enjoy their newly married life, the reality couple had commitments back at home.

Said commitments: Kim needed to keep her profile public by presenting at the VMAs Aug. 28 and began filming her E! show, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Aug 31.

Commitments are commitments, but producers couldn’t give her more than a lousy three days to enjoy being married? What a sham! She’s already earning her network a ton of money: her two-part wedding special, set to air in October, is surely going to rake in big ratings for E!

Personally, I think Kim and Kris deserved — and needed — more than three days of alone time (re: without cameras trailing them), and its considered the norm to take at least a week to yourself after the craziness of a big wedding. The two barely had time to enjoy themselves in Capri and Naples, which, in my book, is a crime; the Italian locales are that romantic.

For Kim Kardashian, who has just earned $18 million from her wedding, perhaps going back to work is a necessity (despite the fact that she was clearly working on her honeymoon as well, as she sold the pics and her story to Us Weekly). But for the rest of you, enjoy your time alone with your new husband before everyday life gets in the way. You deserve it.
