Past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, and Kim's relationship history is full of lightning-fast hookups followed by painful breakups. It doesn't take much to see the pattern, starting with her first marriage to Damon Thomas, which ended in a divorce marked by accusations of abuse. Then there was singer Brandy's brother Ray-J and the sex tape that resulted in a lawsuit. After that came a string of brief, high profile relationships with guys including Nick Lachey and Nick Canon, to name a few.

Then, in 2011, came the infamous, whirlwind engagement and multi-million dollar marriage to Kris Humphries, which ended after a meager 72 days. Now, Kim aims to have a child and establish a life with music susperstar Kanye West. But if she's simply succumbing to the irrational temptation to rush into a new relationship, she's likely headed for disaster.

Yes, there are warning flags flying all over the place. For one, this couple got together almost immediately after Kim separated from Kris. People often rebound in an effort to undo what went wrong before, or to do something totally different than the last relationship. The new love is actually all about undoing the past. Keep reading.
