Kourtney was right never to marry Scott Disick
We have uncharacteristically been talking a lot – debating really – about the Kardashians. I, for one, don’t really care about this reality tv stuff and I am not even sure why I am sitting here writing about Kourtney Kardashian’s relationship – as if it is any of my business. The thing is that Kourtney Kardashian seems to have stolen the hearts and minds of a few people at Divorce Saloon who have been waxing poetic about how “interesting” she is on our recent conference call; and so when I hung up, I thought, “whatever,” but then I also began to think that maybe I need to be more open minded about the Kardashians generally speaking. They are a cultural phenomenon. And one of the things we agreed on is that Kourtney’s refusal to marry her long time boyfriend Scott Disick in spite of the fact that they are such good parents together was probably the wisest Kardashian decision – second only to Kris Jenner’s decision to put her family in the KUWTK franchise to begin with.
From my perspective, divorce happens because wrong marriages are entered into that should never have been entered into in the first place. Kourtney seems to have known, perhaps on a subconscious level, that Scott was Mr wrong and she had enough self control and restraint not to get married to him even though they have 3 children together.
Unlike her sisters and mother (Kris, Kim and Khloe) who have been through multiple relationships, Kourtney has remained in a relationship with Scott pretty consistently in one form or another. But she has never divorced. And why? Because she has never gotten married. Isn’t this interesting? Of course, the fact that she has never married him does not mean she never will. They do seem to have a connexion and a bond that is unbreakable and that has stood the test of time, better than a lot of marriages even. However, if she hasn’t seen fit to marry him after more than a decade of dating chances are she never will and if she does, chances are good it will crack up in no time – so hopefully she will leave well enough alone.
It is a lesson to all of us that marriage should not be entered into lightly and divorce can only happen if the wrong marriage happens. It is imperative that people take their time to really decide if the person they are with is the right one for marriage and if the answer is “no” then they should abstain from the marriage.
The divorce rate will only drop when people stop marrying the wrong people. Kourtney Kardashian seems to have figured that out. Good for her.
