IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH

Khloe Kardashian Says, "I Don't Believe In Divorce"

 

Khloe Kardashian's marriage vows have truly been put to the test this year. Despite divorce proceedings, she has stood by Lamar Odom's side "in sickness and in health."

She penned an article for Lena Dunham's Lenny newsletter, in which she explains the inner turmoil she faced throughout this journey.

"I've been blessed with a lot in my life, and I've also had challenges,"she wrote. "It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced."

"At my core, I don't believe in divorce," Khloe wrote, attributing this belief to her Christian faith. "But I came to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness. I am at peace with that decision and do feel like I honored my vows to the very end. I feel that I kept the serious vows I made in front of God with every inch of my heart, which is why I am still honoring them today even though my relationship with my ex-husband is in a different place. I believe in caring for my partner—past or present—'in sickness and in health,' and feel at peace with my relationship with God even after the fact. I'm thankful that I can rely on my God, who, along with my family, has led me through some of the most difficult times of my life."

The pair has caused some confusion in recent months. We've seen them out to dinner, church, and even a red carpet event. We don't see them reconciling romantically, but respect Khloe for her loyalty to her partner.
