Sometimes in life, we're forced to watch friends and loved ones make mistakes that we know will only cause them pain and heartache.
We might want to hogtie them, throw them in our trunk, and head for the nearest international border, but generally, the best thing we can do is hold our tongues and hope they learn a lesson that will help them in the future.
Of course, there are exceptions to every rule ...
And if the latest rumors about Khloe Kardashian are true, her family might do well to consider the strong rope and Mexico option.
As you've no doubt heard by now, Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe will she was pregnant with his child.
Shortly thereafter, Khloe welcomed her first child - and that wasn't the week's only miraculous development.
Khloe also made the truly boss decision to throw Tristan out of his own house and take up residence there herself.
For a while, family, friends, and fans were confident she would be able to extricate herself from a truly horrendous situation.
There were even rumors that Khloe had already dumped Tristan and was simply waiting until the conclusion of the NBA playoffs to announce her decision.
Sadly, it now appears as though she's had a change of heart.
Insiders say Khloe revealed to her family this week that despite all the tumult of the past month, she still plans to marry Tristan in the near future.
“Friends can’t believe she would consider giving him a second chance, let alone marry him,” a source close to the situation tells In Touch Weekly.
“Khloe never learns from her mistakes,” the insider explains.
“She forgave Lamar [Odom] for cheating, and now she’s doing the same thing with Tristan. She thinks marriage will be the answer to their problems, even though it’s clear she can never trust him again.”
Yes, anyone who's ever been married can tell you that marriage is easy, uncomplicated, and automatically fixes every problem in your relationship.
And marrying a guy who's already a known cheater?
Why, that's never created problems for anyone, ever!
We sympathize with Khloe's plight, as she's been open about her desire for marriage and a family over the years, but this is clearly not the way to go about it.
Hopefully, Kris Jenner and company have their bungee cords and passports at the ready.
