Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: What happened?

November 1, 2011 |  7:50 am


Hopefully, with almost a full day to digest the news, everyone reading this has had time to recover from the shock and devastation of the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries breakup.

But what happened? How could two people so fully in love call it quits after an amazing 72 days of marriage? Why throw away all those hours of memories? Some theories:

--Kardashian wants to challenge Liz Taylor's marriage record.

--Humphries refused to change his last name to Kardashian.

--Humphries couldn't stand being the second-best basketball player in the family, behind Lamar Odom.

--Kardashian suddenly found out that Humphries does not play for the Lakers.

--Humphries decided "I've given her the best 72 days of my life, what more does she want?"

--Humphries angered Kim when he went up to stepdad Bruce Jenner and said: "You won an Olympic gold medal in the decathlon? Dude, what happened to you?"

--Their "buy one marriage, get one free" coupon expired after 72 days.

We may never know what happened to cause this marriage to end. All we can do now is stand back and wonder what might have been.
