Marriage.


Warning: Today's post is a little bit of a rant.

Okay, I will come right out and say it: I'm not a fan of the Kardashian clan.  In my opinion, Bruce Jenner is the only member of the family with an ounce of talent, and the rest should stay off my TV screen.  And I hate that she's even getting a shout out on my blog today.

Now that we have that in the open, I'm going to share my thoughts:

Marriage is hard.   

Yes, I know that's the most profound statement you've heard all day.  It's true.  There are times that I've wanted to murder Mr. BUB.  Luckily for him, I'm just not cut out for prison & I'm definitely not sneaky enough to get away with the crime. 

On the flip side, I'm sure Mr. BUB has wanted to end me a time or two as well.  And he reads enough spy novels, I'm fairly certain he could get away with it.  But instead, we choose to work on our issues.  That's the way marriage works.  We entered this marriage knowing there was no way out. 

And now we're embarking on what will probably be the most trying time we'll ever face: parenthood.  I'm cranky without my normal 9 hours of sleep.  You think I'm joking.  And eventually- Lord help us- this child will turn into a teenage version of us.  And you know what?  I think we're ready.  Because we're in this together.

Actually, I think I'll lock the teenager in a basement for a few years if she's anything like me.

The point I'm trying to make is this:

If you'd put the same amount of effort into your marriage as you did planning your $10 million wedding, you wouldn't have to hire Hollywood's top divorce lawyer.  Just something to ponder before divorce wedding #3, Kim.

So true. She is such a little brat.

Lindsey @ Running Down A Dream said...

Amen! Marriage is tough, but so worth the effort!

Jennifer said...

I, like you, cannot stand that entire family. I do not understand why people give this "got famous because of a sex tape" girl and her family the time of day. I could care less what happens in her life. She is a disgusting pig and that is that.

Between her and Lindsay Lohan, I wish they would both drop off the face of the Earth already.

Sarah @ Simply Sarah said...

I agree! I'm actually a Kardashian fan, but when I watched her Wedding I thought, "No one who is actually planning on having a marriage would ever spend THAT MUCH on a wedding." I mean 3 wedding dresses? Are you kidding me?

Michelle said...

So true! Great post! Although I'm not married, I know it will be work but you're in together and need to make it work together. Obviously, they didn't go into for the right reasons or have the best intentions.

tara said...

Couldn't have said it better myself! I am SO over kimmy k and her whole family! Marriage isn't just something you do for a tv show. It really requires a lot of hard work!

KLaw said...

well said!

Katie said...

Great post-- so true!

Krista said...

meh i think the whole marriage was a publicity stunt... she just wanted to get married as quickly as possible, and kris humphries came along and he seemed kind of slow. and she was like SCORE 20 million dollar ring later, let's rush into this marriage thing.
and kris jenner was all for it. she wants all her girls married.

why are the kardashians even famous? oh because kim banged some c-list rapper.

you know what bugs me the most about this? the fact that this 72 day marriage isn't making a sham out of marriage but 2 gay people getting married would be.

Renata said...

Perfectly Put - seriously. One of my big 'things' is just being impatient to start the marriage chapter of my life, but I always have to keep myself in check. It's not going to make my life perfect overnight, or solve all of my problems, and it sure as hell won't be easy!

Ashlee Miller said...

AMEN! Couldn't agree with you more!

Kristine said...

Amen sista!

KJJ Houston said...

so crazy and you hit the nail on the head!

Ashleigh said...

Totally agree! Marriage is pretty tough! As is parenthood... i know that the hardest time we have everhad was months 1-6 with our baby- you are trying to get used to taking care of a child AND making time for your marriage... face it, it doesnt always work out where you get that time. But you power through it and b4 you know it, you are so happy in ur life and marriage that you want another baby :-)

Molly said...

Well said. I'm not a huge fan of the Kardashian clan either (mainly Kim), but somehow got sucked in to watching the wedding. People enter into marriage so lightly these days, it's disgusting. I couldn't agree more with this post.

Laura said...

The problem is the way out of a marriage these days is well just no big deal. It's as easy as breaking up. People are not entering a marriage with the frame of mind that if it doesn't work out we'll just get divorced. The hubby and I have had some really tough times, some so tough we didn't know that we would make it but the fact that we kept fighting for each other ment we still cared. We knew we were worth fighting for. And seriously what marriage is going to be a happy time when you spend it living with your sister, nephew and and the baby daddy??? Get your own place and work it out, not every day is rainbows. Sorry this went a little long but obviously I agree with you.

Sarah E. said...

I'm a fan of Bruce and his daughters and Khloe and Kourtney. I cannot STAND Kim. She is an entitled brat who is just plain obnoxious and annoying. I can't take her.

I knew this was coming when her little trip to Cabo with him...he didn't know she had been married...she reacted like a 3 year old when she lost an earring when he threw her. You could tell they hadn't been in enough of a relationship to turn it into a marriage.

[SMASH] said...

AMEN lady!

Anna said...

Preach it sister! I have to admit I do watch their dumb show and I shouldn't give them the ratings but I agree, Bruce is the best and the only one with his feet on the ground...

Victoria said...

amen!!! i can't stand any member of that family-they are famous for nothing. i was disgusted by the amount of money they spent on the wedding and it is even worse now because they just wasted all of it. it is a real shame that a lot of hollywood has no respect for marriage vows.

although there are some celebs that actually know what a good/real/honest marriage is about :) (like kelly ripa and mark consuelos, or tom hanks and rita, or pink and carey hart or tim mcgraw and faith hill or keith urban and nicole kidman).

happy weds!

Katie said...

I think anyone that narcissistic is bound to fail at marriage. Because marriage isn't just about you, you, you - and there is now way any of those people could handle that. Also, I doubt she put ANY effort into that wedding. E! probably did it all for her.

The Miskell Family said...

Preach on sista!!!! Agree 100% but I doubt Bennypoo has ever wanted to kill you off. I mean, you are perfect right!

Katie said...

Ugh, couldn't agree more! The mockery those 2 have made of marriage is disgusting. Marriage is supposed to be sacred. What ever happened to that??

The thing that bugs me most is the citing of "irreconcilable differences"...I mean, did they not realize they couldn't get along 72 days ago??

A Babbling Brunette said...

TOTALLY agree with you. Divorce shouldn't be an option unless there are specific circumstances and I'm fairly certain she wasn't under any of those. Hollywood makes marriage such a joke. It's so sad! (Didn't know she was married before either)

Christina said...

Agreed. Kim K drives me insane.

Sincerely Sara Cate said...

My thoughts EXACTLY.

star said...

I completely agree. Marriage is hard, you cant just file for divorce the minute the first problem arises. Marriage is not a joke, but unfortunately, a lot of "celebs" seem to think it is.

Lindsay said...

Amen sister! That needed to be said!

DeliaDee said...

SO TRUE!!!!

Wiz said...

I have never been able to get on the Kardashian bandwagon either. And after nearly nine years of marraige, I 100% agree how hard marraige can be but it is oh so worth it!

And sleep deprivation totaaly sucks but just remember its temporary and while you are up feeding, its a great time to read!

Mommy Lisa said...

It pisses me OFF! Did you get a body pillow? It helps.

Nichole said...

Preach it, lady! I couldn't agree more. I've been married (almost) 7 months and we've already hit some rough bumps along the way, but we're not dating anymore and you have to work through it now.

Karli said...

AMEN!!!!

Amy Rene said...

Marriage is hard. And it really sucks to see people acting like it's no big deal. Well said! (Though I love the Kardashians... unfortunately!)

Lil' Woman said...

I am so over this chick and her family, O-V-E-R!

Cherie said...

I'm gonna give you an AMEN. Anybody who thinks marriage doesn't take WORK should not be married. I wish the Kardashians would gracefully bow out of the spotlight.. I could do without them.

oomph. said...

agreed. hollywood seems to have their own set of screwed up morals...

[oomph.]
What's the next line? Help write the story!

Chelsea @ {twotwentyone} said...

So, so, so true. I thought it was odd that she was rushing into her SECOND marriage so quickly. You'd think that one would ponder that for more than 9 months...

Heather said...

AMEN to all of this! I think the whole marriage was a sham and that she did it all for money. I'm really sad to say that, but I think money comes before love for her.

Jess... said...

"If you'd put the same amount of effort into your marriage as you did planning your $10 million wedding, you wouldn't have to hire Hollywood's top divorce lawyer. Just something to ponder before divorce wedding #3, Kim."

I couldn't have said it any better!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Agreed!!! Plus is she was going to end her marriage that fast she could have gave those millions to people who need the money.
