Most fans of "Keeping up with the Kardashians," if they were paying attention, saw the multitude of red flags that Kim missed. Here are the ones I noticed, which ones did you see?
Just seventy-two days after their storybook wedding, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce stating, "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage . . . I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned." Later stating, "It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for."
Unfortunately, when a man or woman is in the lust or romantic stage of a relationship the old adage that "love is blind" really does apply. Kim was incapable of "seeing" the full truth about her partner, Kris Humphries. She only saw the fairytale, not the reality.
Now, from an anthropological and evolutionary standpoint, this is a very needed and important aspect in procreating the human race. It is nature's way of blinding the man and woman long enough to secure a pregnancy. However, from a logical and realistic place, it is important to rise above the hormone-induced brain and see your potential mates' strengths and weakness, relationship skills, life goals, and be able to assess compatibility. This is easy to say but often hard to do.
During Kim and Kris Humphries courtship, five type of blaring red flags were caught on camera:
- The first was Humphries emotional immaturity. Fans of the show saw first hand how this played out when he faced any type of conflict with either Kim or her family. When a situation would arise in which Humphries did not agree or felt he was being mistreated, he would shut down a conversation, pout, withdraw, and complain instead of dealing with the issue directly.
The importance of paying attention to the red flags before marriage is crucial and can save everyone a lot of time, money and most importantly, heartache.
