A healthy marriage requires a whole lot of compromise and even the strongest couples can have their issues finding a happy medium — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are no exception. They don't always see eye-to-eye, but how Kim Kardashian manages to compromise with Kanye West while remaining true to herself is actually a major life lesson.
During a Nov. 5 interview with The Real, Kardashian opened up about West's newfound religious journey and the conservative rules he's put in place for their kids since. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling," she said. "And he's been going through this life change."
She went on to clarify that with West being a father of four, he's become more cautious. "And he's had this epiphany of being ... a little bit more strict as a dad and being very forceful on the imagery that's in the household and what they see," she said. "I actually agree with it."
But she doesn't always agree. "But, I'm always going to be me. So, we had that discussion and that fight. I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is," she added, seemingly alluding to West's frustration over Kardashian's stunning Thierry Mugler corset dress she wore to the 2019 Met Gala.
If you missed it, the Oct. 13 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians revealed never-before-seen drama that went down between the couple right before the event. West started by telling Kardashian, that since his spiritual awakening and becoming a father, he doesn't want his wife to wear clothing that is too sexy, whatever that means.
"I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married and the father of now … about to be four kids. A corset is a form of underwear, it’s hot, for who though?” he said in the episode.
He then told Kardashian he thought her clothing was too proactive. "You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy," he said.
“You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this, and just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you," Kardashian told West.
In the end, she was true to herself and wore the dress. Even though Kardashian and her husband bump heads in light of West's new conservative outlook, she thinks he is setting a good example for their children.
"Just where he has gone in his life and maybe things that he did a year ago, he probably wouldn't be doing today," she said. "And I love that beautiful journey as well and I think that's a great example for our kids. But, you know, there's also that fine line of staying firm and doing what you feel comfortable with. And I take a little bit of him and I hear what he's saying and I totally compromise."
Hear that, fam? Compromise (while staying true to yourself) is the key to a functional relationship. Noted.
