Kim and Kanye? A match not necessarily made in heaven. Although Kim is very attractive, Kanye looks like he is always chewing on jawbreakers. I would hate to see that baby.

Divorce is not easy for anyone, and it can be especially difficult for children. Kids experience the acute scrambling of their world, while their parents wrestle with their complex emotions.
