Can ‘lack of emotional maturity’ lead Kim-Kris marriage to disaster?

Washington: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have been dating each other for six months but whether their marriage, if at all it takes place, will be successful or not is the multi-million-dollar question.

Kardashian, 30, and Humphries, 26, still a relatively new couple, are based on opposite ends of the country. Humphries has been playing pro basketball, traveling around the country. While Kardashian is one of the hardest working women in show business with a multi-million dollar self-brand, fashion stores, spokesperson roles, television shows and producing gigs.
According to experts, the relationship can land up in trouble if the pair decides to tie the knot only based on romance and not on emotional maturity.
“If this romance lacks emotional maturity, it is doomed from the start – especially if it is just based on feelings from mutual attraction which are flimsy at best and can change at any moment,” the Fox News quoted Donna Sozio, dating expert and co-author of ‘The Man Whisperer’ as saying.
“They don’t know each other, but they are getting to know each other. And they are getting to know each other under high pressure (the cameras, the games, the high point of their careers) which might bond them,” Sozio said.
“But they might be bonding over the high of the adrenaline and the pressure of their busy lives. And once that is gone, so too might be the romance, the chemistry, and the relationship,” she added.
“So many women rush to the altar and then realize no magic happened, and it can be a letdown if we realize the man we thought was Prince Charming turns out to be more like a stranger,” Sozio added. “Rushing is a risk, sometimes you get lucky – but most of the time, you get divorced.”
“Kris grew up in Minnesota and played basketball for several years in Utah, so it’s going to take some getting used to being married to Kim. Because of the living situation, I don’t think Kris has even really begun to realize how many camera’s and bright lights follow around Kim 24/7 and the impact it might have on their developing relationship,” said Evan Sneider, Spokesperson for dating site CanDoBetter.com.
