I've been thinking too much about this so I'm going to put it out there. Despite such a whirlwind courtship, I really was surprised Kim and Kris gave up on their marriage so quickly. Like everybody else, I wondered what was such a huge catalyst to justify what seemed like so little effort after such an over-exaggerated wedding. And since we unprecedented access into some of what happened via her reality show, I have to say I really think Kim just got sick of him. Like flat out, got to know him and had no interest in relationship with him. He wasn't the one.
So Kim went to Dubai in mid-October. During that trip she speaks openly about not enjoying her marriage or wanting to go home to her husband. I'm sure the taped convo regarding this with her mom was not the first time they talked about it; as producers, they would undoubtedly not discuss this on camera until Kim had a pretty good idea she would be ending things.
The saddest part to me is how incredibly unaware Kris seems to be. She pushes him to agree to a baby right away, then tells him she's not ready. She agreed to living half the year in Minnesota with him, then tells him she will never live there. And while she looks strained and uncomfortable nearly the entire season, he seems focused on his basketball career and surviving in suite with a baby, his new in-laws, constant cameras, and a wife who seems like she privately gave up. Never thought Kim's show would lead me to sympathize with the Hump, but he really seems like he was swept up and spit out by the Kardashian Hollywood Machine.
