Is the young Kardashian girl engaged just to beat her sisters down the aisle?

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

4) To trick your estranged parents into getting back together. Really, any scheme to set two people up is probably a mistake. Read: What Not To Do On A Blind Date

3) To get a sweet vacation, totally awesome gifts and/or a dope party with a DJ or a Grand Funk Railroad cover band. Read: When You Must Return Wedding Gifts

2) To have sex for the first time (with another person). Although, it is pretty fun... Read: How I Became A Divorced Virgin

1) You're pretty much ready to let yourself go and this seems like the best way to not end up alone. Read: Head Over Meals: How Love Makes You Fat


It should be pointed out that I have no idea why Khloe and Lamar Odom are getting married and most of these reasons don't apply to them. I just know that he loves candy.
