Kim Kardashian’s Fame-Whore Marriage Ends After 72 Days. And Gays Can’t Marry Because?

It’s not just us who question the whole “sanctity of marriage” argument when we hear about highly publicized celebrity weddings that are soon followed by quickie divorces. Even Reuters is saying Kim Kardashian’s 72-day hitch to Kris Humphries is making her an unintentional “poster girl” for marriage equality.

Kim Kardashian’s mini-marriage became an instant rallying cry among same-sex marriage advocates who pointed out that she was allowed to make a joke of the institution while many gay couples who want lifelong marriages still aren’t allowed to wed.

“Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 72 days. Another example of how same-sex marriage is destroying the sanctity of the very institution,” joked Geoge Takei on Twitter, expressing the sentiment of many.

Tweeted gossip blogger Perez Hilton: “Straight people do a damn well good job themselves of ruining the sanctity of marriage! #MarriageForAll.”

Then again, since Humphries and Kardashian netted somewhere in the ballpark of $18 million for their August wedding—equal to $250,000 for each day they were man and wife—maybe they’re actually helping to take the institution back to its roots as an unromantic exchange of property and goods.

Hey Kim, since we know you’re not gonna wear any of those three $20,000 wedding dresses Vera Wang gave you for free, can we have one?

      At least they tried. All of you are just picking on them because they have everlasting straight love that will last an eternity (or tax quarter). It would have, could have and should be celebrated. There you go, spoiling their love…the gays ruioned another perfect marrige!!!

      It’s all for publicity and more money. She’ll “reconcile” with poor dumbass Chris, then break up again (preferably in an awful pubic brawl. Then divorce–of course all that hinges on how the ratings and her Sears line is doing.

      Meanwhile, gays can’t marry????

      @Matt:

      She isn’t a girl. She is a 31 year old woman. Why feel sorry for her? She has been plotting her road to fame since she she shot herself having sex several years agon. I feel sorry for the people who are her fans and have built her into a “celebrity”.

      On another note she should know about marriage since this is her 2nd one. It is obvious that her “romance” with Humphries was staged for E!

      Um, I just have to say this. This has been buggin me a long time. There is something wrong in this country (you remember, the United States of America, where we are supposed to have equal rights for all) when a moron like Kim Kardashian who knew her husband for 5 minutes, can get married and can get divorced in 10 minutes. But my husband and I, who celebrate our 15 year anniversary on November 7, can’t even get married after all these years when we have fought long and hard to build and make a life for ourselves and have committed ourselves to do good for society, children, and others in our society at large. My husband a cardiologist and me a licensed clinical social worker. We see pain and suffering every day adn strive to make the lives of other people better and make their pain a little less and easier to bear. What happened to the words of the Declaration of Independence? : “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” I just don’t get people who don’t see the bigotry and injustice in denying LGBT citizens here and around the world the rights, dignity, and respect to which we and they are entitled. To again, quote a congressman I admire, “How many gay people does God have to make before we realize, He wants us around??” Wake up people fighting us, because we will never, ever stop fighting for the complete and equal rights that we deserve…and I dream of a day when a child won’t be beaten, killed, or throw themselves off the George Washington fucking Bridge because idiotic, archaic, bigoted morons send the message to these children that their lives are less worthy than someone else’s. Those days are going to be soon over. And shame on those who think otherwise. Happy Halloween and a brighter future for our young LGBT brothers and sisters.

      Do you think the husband knew it was a sham done only for the cameras or was he stupid enough to think that she actually wanted to marry him and live forever together?

      My guess is the studio paid for a wedding and a divorce, no doubt the next season of her show will be all about poor little Kimmie trying to learn how to love again.

      Pathetic.

      She’s a shameless fame whore. She reminds me of the Lohan’s who read every single article that is ever written about them because they are incurable narcissists. Why we pay attention to her at all is insane. If the media would stop reporting on these talentless hacks they would vanish. Isn’t that what we want?

      @michael: Michael…most people aren’t calling her names. Most people are enraged that straight people can marry and divorce on a whim with little to no thought after knowing each other for literally days. And those of us who have been with our partners for years and decades are denied equal right which are supposed to be guaranteed under our constitution. Maybe you are the one who should grow up and read up a little on the discrimination the LGBT community faces on a daily basis.

      @michael: I agree. I’m all for equal marriage rights, but it’s not Kim’s fault most states still don’t allow gay marriage. In fact, she has said she supports the right of gay people to marry. Be mad at the people in Congress and state legislatures who vote against marriage equality and not Kim. If she had never gotten married or stayed marriage, we still wouldn’t have equal marriage right so this whole topic is stupid.
      And anyway, when you get married don’t you want to right to get divorced in 72 days if you hate the other guy and not have everyone say oh, we told you so, gay people can’t do marriage!

      Um, maybe I don’t actually want to know, but how DID these two nobodies score $18 million for marrying each other?

      The only thing I know about a Kardashian (that I didn’t learn from watching The Soup) is that Robert Kardashian Sr. esq. committed a grave miscarriage of justice in the OJ Simpson murder trial. Kardashian knew Simpson was guilty of the murders and knowingly removed evidence from Simpson’s house making Kardashian an accessory after the fact. Daddy’s price was considerably less than his little princess’.

      Kim’s soulless whorishness would have made daddy proud.

      Not that I don’t agree with lots of what has been said but the most famous examples of this (Britney, Kim) are all from pro-equality people so it does seem slightly mean to be so negative.

      so, the real marriage barely lasted long enough for the fricking four-hour “fairy tale wedding” special to air on t.v. the bitch is just living her own reality t.v. show, whether the cameras are on or off. if we all just turn our backs on these vacuous losers, maybe they’ll finally go away. and someday, someone will ask in blessed confusion, weren’t the kardashinans characters in the first “star wars” movies??
