Sanctity of Marriage Watch: Kim Kardashian Files for Divorce After 72 Days

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are the new poster children for the non-sanctity of marriage.

TMZ reports: Kardashian

"Kim Kardashian will file for divorce this morning, after 72 days of not-so-wedded bliss to Kris Humphries  ... TMZ has learned. We're told even though the marriage was short, she will not seek an annulment. It's a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites "irreconcilable differences." We're told the date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011....The couple was married on August 20 in a lavish ceremony (see below) in Montecito, CA. There are reports that the wedding cost as much as $10 mil, which means $138,888 for every day until today."

People adds: "Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning," Tweets Ryan Seacrest, who produces her reality show. "I touched base with her."

  1. A publicity stunt that paid millions? She's NOT as stupid as she looks, asks or speaks. Next week-A new reality show that covers the divorce.

  2. Pre-Nup or not, I wonder if Mr. Humphries can still sue her for fraud?

    Or get the Pre-Nup annulled based on fraudulent-contract if the Pre-Nup conditions aren't favorable to him?

  4. Gotta admit - Kris H is one hunka hunka burning love. Probably not the brightest, but who needs bright - you can just read a book.

  5. There you have it: Kim Kardashian can marry--in a lavish fairy-tale wedding, of course--and divorce her husband after 72 days of marriage and get married again as soon as those divorce papers are dry, as long as it is to another man, whereas a gay or lesbian couple that has been together for, say, 20 or 30 years cannot marry at all in the US, or if they can marry, their decades of commitment, unlike Kim's 72 days of "commitment," is not recognized by the federal government as long as DOMA is in place. Trick or treat?!

    Another perfect illustration of the stupendous ludicrousness of saying heterosexuals deserve the right to get married and we don't.

  6. This is bothersome to me because she earned $17.2 million from the wedding and is probably earning millions more from the divorce.

    It's a sad commentary on America that this sort of thing is rewarded at all.

  9. If she can get married on a whim for the second is wrong that we can't get married after we have been with our partners after my case 15 years. Equal rights for all....really ??? I'll believe it when I see it.

  10. Given that she has been up front about her support of marriage equality, I'm wondering if she hasn't just made a big pro-equality point for us all. Instead of bashing her, maybe we should be thanking her for showing the absurdity of anti-marriage-equality laws so clearly and concisely. She just handed us all a huge talking point on a silver platter.
