Kim and Kanye started dating last year , and West has since made several appearances on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” This is Kanye’s first marriage and the third for Kim. Her fans are hoping that third time is the charm for the reality starlet.

Still, there will always be the skeptics, who also threw their two cents in about the newly engaged couple, especially given that Kim’s last marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries
only lasted 72 days. @NickSakai1 wrote, “18 months max. RT @Marianna_Hewitt: Congrats @KimKardashian & @kanyewest !!!!!”
“Kanye proposed to Kim @kanyewest @KimKardashian Good luck! Lol,” @Chick_MagnetJo added.
@alexandergold joked, “I hope Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are able to love each other as much as they love themselves.”
