Third time’s the charm for Kim Kardashian: The reality star, who previously wed music producer Damon Thomas and NBA player Kris Humphries (famously calling it quits after 72 days), is now preparing to marry beau Kanye West in a much-anticipated Florentine extravaganza this weekend.
Throughout her highly publicized relationships, Kardashian has had plenty to say about her affaires de coeur. Here are some of her most memorable sound bites on the subject of amore.
SOUL CYCLE: “I think you have different soul mates throughout your life, that your soul needs different things at different times. I do believe in love. I will always believe in love, but my idea has changed from what I’ve always thought.”
–To British Cosmopolitan
SPLIT DECISION: “I love really hard. I fall hard, and I followed my heart. When things don’t work out, that’s sometimes just how life is. What’s the point in dragging something out … when you know that it’s just not it for you?”
–On the Today show
SNAP CHAT: “I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic. I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE: “I used to be so dependent on the guys I was in a relationship with. I don’t know why, because I wasn’t raised that way. If I looked at myself at 19, I would shake myself and be like, Wake up; you are way too smart for this.”
–To Harper s Bazaar
SHE’S A BELIEVER: “I believe in love, always.”
TIME CHANGE: “I saw fast marriages like Khloe and Lamar’s and that was what seemed to work. [Now] I say give it a good six months before you commit. Feelings change, even if it seems so lustful.”
KNOW IT ALL: “It’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things.”
–To Oprah Winfrey
