Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have been together for several years and have two beautiful children together, Mason and Penelope. But as fans of the Kardashian reality shows well-know, the pair have never been in any rush to tie the knot – until now?
For a split second, many wondered if Scott finally popped the question to Kourtney following a questionable Instagram post, but alas, it was just a joke.
“Finally did it,” posted Scott on his Instagram account, along with a picture of Kourtney’s hand on which a rather large and colorful ring was sitting.
But while “Lord Disick” may have a flare for the dramatic, nothing could prepare fans for the “engagement ring” he gave Kourtney. Instead of the flamboyant diamond we all assumed he would give his girlfriend if he ever proposed, the photo was far from Scott’s lavish and signature style we’ve all come to know and love – it was actually made of balloons!
Kourtney and Scott had a balloon party for the kids over the weekend, so that’s what sparked the marriage rumors. Hopefully if the couple ever does get engaged, the ring will be THAT huge.
This isn’t the first time the couple have actually hinted at getting married. But while momager Kris Jenner has always pushed her eldest daughter to walk down the isle – especially since she and Scott already have two kids – the pair seem to be working it out just fine.
With statistics indicating that 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, many couples, like Scott and Kourtney, are now choosing to live together without actually getting married.
Cohabitation in the U.S. has increased by over 1,500 percent in the last 50 years, but there have been varying reports on the effects of pre-marital cohabitation on a relationship. Previous research suggested that couples who cohabitate have a lower chance of ever getting married. However, recent studies have demonstrated that cohabitation may actually lead to longer and healthier relationships and a greater chance the relationship will transition into marriage.
Cohabitation does have its perks, after all. Couples get to learn about their individual quirks and can work on their faults. They choose to stay in the relationship despite their partners flaws, while newlyweds who have no idea what each other’s habits are may feel forced to work things out and may end up getting divorced.
Each couple is different, so it’s impossible to assume every relationship will react the same way to cohabitation. But for Kourtney and Scott, finding a top divorce lawyer isn’t something they have to worry about – at least not for the time-being.
