The Kardashian Split.

What's not to love?
Clint Brewer/Splash News Online

If you're like most people, and let's face it, you are...the news of yesterday's filing for divorce between one of the Kardashians (I think the one with long, dark hair) and some guy she met, has really thrown you for a loop. I can't blame you and here's why.

There's an awful lot of talk lately about marriage, who can do it, who decides who can do it, and the most important piece of all: just how sacred and sanctified it is. These are all really valid questions, especially when we learn that a reported TEN MILLION DOLLAR wedding resulted in the sacred union of committed souls for 72 days. I mean, come on! Seventy two days!! 

That's like...over 2 months. I think they they did their work, and bless their loving hearts, they just couldn't make a go of it.

I have heard that "irreconcilable differences" was the reason listed and I can readily admit that if you're arguing for 72 days then you probably can't resolve your issues...I wonder if they were arguing about the sanctity of marriage? Maybe they were discussing the covenant of love that they'd entered and just couldn't agree on what "covenant" means. I don't have all the answers.

Anyway, I'm just glad we're all clear that it's only one man and one woman who can do this sort of resolute and contemplative business, who can be responsible for this sort of sacred and lifelong commitment, and who can be trusted to dissolve it when it has become clear that the enduring agony cannot be mended. 

And it's pretty lucky there's still a basketball strike going on, huh? We wouldn't want anyone going too long without another union to sanctify!

I mean, really...just imagine if we had to watch two men or two women dissolve a solemn, lifelong promise, made with intent and before an all-loving God....after 72 days. That would just be a mockery of the blessed institution.

And a serious waste of ten million dollars.

These two have been together for 30 years...
Thank goodness they can't get married.
