On October 31st, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries just after 72 days of being married. Was Kim and Kris meant for each other? Popular psychology about love and compatibility would say otherwise. Similarity is a big factor in attraction. Kim and Kris came from totally different worlds. Kim enjoyed shopping and living the high life, where Kris enjoyed outdoor activities and living a practical life. Kim was used to spending lots of money on herself and buying the highest quality of everything, Kris was not so used to this. Since these two are complete opposites, there marriage was not meant to last. Proximity is also an important factor. Kris first lived in Minnesota and currently lives in New York, where Kim has lived in California her whole life. They were never close to each other, which in the end put a strain on their relationship. Reciprocity is one of the most important factors in making a relationship last. Kim did not want to move and neither did Kris. Kim also did not want to give up her last name and take his. She also did not like dogs, where Kris did not want to give up anything to accommodate to his new wife. Since the two of them were not willing to give or take, their relationship would not last. Looks is obviously not the only thing that makes a relationship. Kim is one of the most beautiful women in the world, so Kris was automatically attracted to her. Since Kris is a little bit more old-school, he believes that the men should have the jobs and be financially secured. Kim makes more than he does and was not willing to give up her job. Due to popular psychology, the two were never meant to last for a very long time. If they would have considered these statements before, they would have lasted longer.
