August 4 marks a very special day in the pop culture world: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be married for 72 days. As we all remember, 72 days is the same amount of time Kim was married to her ex Kris Humphries.
Even though there have been rumors that Kimye’s relationship is in crisis, we’ve got to ask: Will Kim and Ye’s marriage last longer than her last one?
As for any relationship, having that initial foundation is important for a long-lasting marriage. Luckily for you, we already did the research.

Kim spent most of her time cheering on Kris from the sidelines. As for Kanye, she got to actually sit with him courtside and attend fashion shows and many other events.
Before Kris got down on one knee, he and Kim dated for only six months! However, their relationship took off quickly since only weeks after they went public, Kim met Kris’ parents at a Minnesota Timberwolves game. Unlike Kim and Kris, Kimye knew each other for a reported nine years before they started dating in March 2012. About a year and a half later, the 37-year-old rapper popped the question to Kim.

If you forgot, the 33-year-old reality star and Kris’ engagement was all caught on camera and shown during a Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode. When Kim walked into her Beverly Hills home in May 2011, Kris was waiting in her bedroom – on a bended knee – with candles and rose petals that spelled out: “Will You Marry Me?”
Kanye’s proposal in October 2013 happened to be on a much larger scale. He not only rented out San Francisco’s AT&T Park, but also commissioned a 50-piece orchestra and managed to keep the whole ceremony a surprise. The words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" were blasted on the Jumbotron.
While Humphries popped the question with a custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, Kanye proposed with a 15-carat diamond ring—also from Lorraine Schwartz. Humphries’ was reportedly worth $2 million and Kanye’s was reportedly worth $3 million.

We all know just how big Kim’s family is. With that being said, whoever her fiancé is, he has to impress five siblings and Bruce and Kris Jenner. As we saw on KUWTK, Khloe hated Kris! “How much you getting paid to fake your marriage [to Lamar Odom]?” Khloe recalled Humphries asking…Let’s just say the Kardashians are thankful that Kanye is now Kim’s hubby—and Kris Jenner has photos on Instagram to prove it!
Kim and Kris got married on August 20, 2011, so they were only engaged for about three months—which was a little more than how long their marriage lasted. The two tied the knot in Montecito, Calif. Kimye, on the other hand, got married May 24, 2014 in Florence, Italy after being engaged for seven months.
