As I was taking in a soda pop and the morning interweb browse today, I noticed that one of the Kardashian sisters became engaged, "Whoopty-doo hurray!," I thought. I was pretty happy for Kim and her guy Reggie Bush, I mean "finally," right? They'd had a tough go of it, but maybe it's just meant to be. But it wasn't Kim Kardashian getting engaged. Which means that it must be have been Kourtney Kardashian, the expecting sister who is yet unmarried and unbetrothed. Way to "do the right thing," Scott Disick, I thought. But I still was guessing the wrong Kardashian. It turns out that baby Khloe Kardashian is going to beat her older, diminutive sisters down the aisle.
According to the SheKnows.com, Khloe has become engaged to LA Lakers power forward Lamar Odom after less than a month of dating. And while I wish them the very best of luck (seriously, how much do you really need to know about a person to marry them?), I have a suspicion that this engagement may not be happening for the "right reasons."
There's something about being on a TV show called Keeping Up With The Kardashians that makes me a little skeptical of any of the gang's motives (though "keeping up with" may have a double meaning). That being said, here are the six worst reasons to get married:
6) To beat your older sisters, Kim and Kourtney, to the altar. Winning a contest is probably a bad reason to get hitched. Read: The Link Between Birth Order & Love
5) To spite an ex. Yep, he'll be sorry now. Good thinking inviting him to the wedding—you are the bigger person. Read: When An Ex Gets Married…And You're Still Single
