Why did Kris Kardashian and her husband get divorced

Customer Question

Why did Kris Kardashian and her husband get divorced
Submitted: 5 years ago.
Category: General
Expert:  Joan replied 5 years ago.

Hello,

Kris and Robert Kardashian found themselves growing apart and decided to divorce in 1989 after Robert filed for the divorce. They both remarried Kris to Bruce Jenner and Robert also remarried 6 months prior to passing fro Esophogeal Cancer.

 

Kris and Robert remained good friends even after the divorce. Robert and Bruce were also good friends. Before Robert died of Cancer, Bruce made Robert a promise, that he would care for Kris and the kids. Bruce has acted as the Rob and the girl's father and is well respected by the kids.

 

The divorce between Kris and Robert Kardashian was very amicable and actually the families were very close.

 

I hope this is helpful. Joan

That does not seem right. They had four childred, so they had so much in common. Gowing apart doesn't seem right.
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 5 years ago.

Regardless of whether it "seems" right to you or not, it is the truth. Having children is only a small part of a successful marriage. Their basis for their marriage was their closeness to each other, not to whether they had children or not. It was their marital closeness that deteriorated, not their relationship with their children.

Hello,

There are many complicated events in life that influence a couple's closeness. In this case, it was the OJ Simpson trial. Simpson stayed with the Kardashians shortly after the murders occurred. Some believe that bloody clothes of the murder victims were in OJ's bag which Robert was photographed carrying. Robert was an attorney, but had let his license lapse. He decided to help OJ as a volunteer counselor. Later, Robert admitted he had doubts about OJ's innocence, but chose to stand by him because they were friends. This whole occurrence put a great deal of stress on the Kardashian marriage, and the divorce followed. We will never know what conversations may ahve occurred between husband and wife or how she felt about the Simpson trial. Regardless, marriages between close couples with children fall apart every day. It may or may not be right, but it is the truth. You can read more about Robert and the Simpson case here:
