Khloe Kardashian's Marriage: Star Feels Pressure To Be 'Great Wife' To Lamar Odom (VIDEO)

How Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom Make Their Marriage Work

In 2009, Khloé Kardashian shocked her family when she married NBA star Lamar Odom after dating him for just four weeks. Three million fans tuned in to watch their impromptu wedding on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Now, almost three years later, Khloé tells Oprah why she puts pressure on herself to be a great wife and doesn't read the tabloids.

Fame can carry a huge weight, one that can weigh on a marriage until it breaks.

But Khloe Kardashian-Odom -- who married her husband Lamar Odom after dating him for just 30 days -- has turned a deaf ear to critics of her marriage, telling Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on Sunday that she doesn't feel pressure to make her marriage work just because it's in the public eye.

"I feel the pressure from me, from myself, to be a great wife," she said. "This is my marriage, this is my real life."

Though they married quickly, things have been going smoothly for the couple since they tied the knot in 2009. September 27 will mark Khloe and Lamar's third wedding anniversary.
