So millions (sans this writer) glued themselves to the television to see the wedding of Reality Royal Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. GLUED. So much so that the E! Network played their wedding shenanigans over and over and over again.
Then October 31st came and the Kardashian camp announced that after 72 days of marriage, Kim would be filing for divorce. No words why. Just divorced. 2 and 1/2 months had passed and it was over.
So who pops up? All of these folks who scream this unified cry of “Sanctity of marriage” – “How dare she put up such hoopla!” they exclaim torches in hand.
Fast forward a bit and moving to another celebrity Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore. Rumors start FLYING faster than the Kardashian marriage. Kutcher has allegedly had an affair and blondie-cheatee reveals it, what? On their anniversary.
The social media mobsters who torched Kim – are silent.
Then, Moore and Kutcher announce that they will be divorcing after 6 years of marriage.
72 days vs. 6 years – Still divorced. But everyone was willing to bash Kardashian to bits, but not Kutcher? Would we have been more permissible to Kim had she been married a year or two? What if Kris was a cheater? Would the criers of “sanctity” be screaming then?
I’m so disappointed that people, who know nothing except what the frosted blonde announcers on entertainment shows tell them, are so easily swayed.
Are we that small minded? Why do you think there has been such a HUGE double standard? Would love to hear your thoughts. Go!
