Kanye West pulled out all the stops in getting engaged to Kim Kardashian, with an orchestra performance and stadium proposal that put all others to shame.
For the big occasion, ‘Ye rented out San Francisco’s AT&T Park, gathered Kim’s family and friends and directed their attention toward the big screen.
He projected “please marry me” onto the screen for everyone to see. Her engagement ring is not small. By all accounts, the celebrity gossip wept with joy.
If nothing else, seeing Kim Kardashian and Kanye West engaged in such fashion is going to make one heck of an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Just like the last time, when Kris Humphries popped the question. Will this one actually end with Kimye living happily ever after? Can they top 72 days?
Will they even get married at all?
Kim and Kanye began dating in 2012 and welcomed baby North into the world in June 2013. No firm date has been set for the marriage, his first.
For Kardashian, it’s her third. She was previously married to NBA player Humphries (for 72 days) and music producer Damon Thomas (four years).
So how long can this new union last? The odds, quite frankly, are not in favor of a twice-divorced reality star from a family full of failed relationships.
By the numbers, only one marriage out of 11 has not ended in divorce or separation for Kourtney, Khloe, Kim, Kris Jenner, Bruce Jenner or Robert Kardashian.
They have seven divorces and three separations between them.
Kourtney’s relatively stable relationship with Scott Disick, in fairness, is not counted, since he won’t man up and propose … or maybe they’re onto something?
Between the poor family track record, the egos, the fame, the money and the eternally busy schedules, there will be lots of challenges. Can love conquer them?
West, who supposedly refused to marry Kim at one point, is apparently unfazed by the odds. Or just really transfixed by her sexy swimsuit selfie last week.
You tell us, THGers: Do you expect Kim and Kanye to make it to the altar? And if they do, will it last until death do they part? Share your comments below …
