Kourtney Kardashian and I Are Soul Sisters

Unfortunately, I don’t have much in common with the Kardashians. I am not very wealthy. I don’t have lovely, fake hair. I don’t wear fake eyelashes every day (that’s probably good). I don’t have  nice, olive skin. I don’t live in sunny California. But, after watching the most recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, I will say that I think I do have some common ground with Kourtney Kardashian. Okay, maybe not much…but some….

A good portion of the last episode was dedicated to Kris Jenner harassing Kourtney about her and Scott getting married. Apparently Kourtney was saying she wants to have another baby,

Luckily my mom is NOT like Kris Jenner

and Kris was very upset at the notion of her reproducing again without getting married. In an ironic twist, Kim talks about her own personal morals and says she agrees with her mother. Look, I love Kim Kardashian and will defend her to the death. No doubt. But I don’t think she should be talking about personal morals. People all over the world have watched her engage in sexual relations. Once that happens, you can’t really preach to your sister about personal morals and values. Know what I mean?

So anyway, Kris really wants Kourtney and Scott to get married. Kourtney keeps talking about how she’ll do so when she’s ready.

I’m a lot younger than Kourtney and I don’t have a baby. Despite all this, I still get where she’s coming from about the engagement issue. C and I have been dating for 2 1/2 years, and the amount of times people ask me when we’re getting engaged is starting to get insane! Literally everyone and their mom asks when we’re getting engaged! I think it’s because now we’re 23 and we live together, so people automatically assume that’s up next. I already have one friend who’s married, and I could see another one or two getting married in the near future. My Facebook feed is filled with engagements and marriages from people I went to high school and college with. I feel like the first “wave” ( I guess you could call it) of engagements/weddings is in full swing. People must automatically assume that since we’ve been dating so long and we live together, we’re next to ride the wave.

C is the bomb dot com. No doubt. If you don’t know him, you are truly missing out (that rhymed). We have a great time and we live well together. That said, neither of us is ready for marriage. We still make immature jokes and do immature things. To think of us planning a wedding is just silly at this point. That is for old people. Not for people like us. We are still young. We do young things. We act young. We feel young. I am still figuring out how to be a real person, and every day is full of new and different things. My life is still full of so much transition and change. I have no idea where I’ll be in a year, or two years, or five years in terms of jobs. Same goes for him. I can’t imagine taking a step like that during such a huge time of change and transformation. No hate towards anyone who has/is going to. Just saying that it doesn’t feel like the right time for us right now. And I truly believe that if it doesn’t feel like the right time, you shouldn’t do it. If you are happy with your current situation and you love each other, that’s all that matters. And we are and we do. So everyone wins.

Would I like a nice, big piece of jewelry? Of course. Would I like a big party? Definitely. But I like having those things to look forward to.

This is why I can understand where Kourtney is coming from.

She’s happy with her guy. She’s happy with her living situation. She’ s happy with her situation in general. Yet she doesn’t feel like marriage is right for her at this very moment. That’s not to say that it won’t be right soon, and it’s nothing against the guy, just a comment on the timing.

When I was watching the episode, it was the first time that I’ve actually thought, “Wow, we’re actually discussing the same issue here.” Because normally they’re talking about what to pack for their trip to Bora Bora and I’m deciding whether to buy peach or strawberry Greek yogurt so…yeah…not similar. But this time, I get it.

If you’re in a long-term relationship, do you get asked about an engagement? How do you respond?
