Kim Kardashian recently announced her pregnancy with her boyfriend, Kanye West’s, child. Unfortunately, her 72 day marriage to estranged husband, Kris Humphries is still haunting her. Kardashian believes that Humphries is purposely stalling the divorce, according to People. However, Humphries lawyer states  “what is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy” is being used by Kardashian as “an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage (to) prematurely set this matter for trial.” Kardashian denies the allegations and instead says that “God brings you things at a time when you least expect it. I’m such a planner and this was just meant to be. What am I going to? Wait years to get a divorce? I’d love one. It’s a process.” The divorce has been in the works since October 2011.

What are some ways to keep your child out of your messy divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

Putting a child through a divorce can be heart-wrenching and extremely difficult to do. You tried everything to make your marriage work but came to the realization that the marriage needs to end. You want your divorce but you do not want to hurt your child in the process. How can you go through with a divorce without having your child thrown into the messy situation? Cupid is here to help you figure it out:

1. No arguing: Do not argue with your ex in front of your child. This will cause your child to feel depressed or even feel obligated to choose sides. Seeing the two of you argue will hurt your child, so don’t let it happen.

2. Don’t create a messenger: Don’t make your child a messenger between the two of you. Keep your child as far away from the problem as possible. Don’t ask them to spy on your ex and don’t get them involved in your arguments.

3. Communicate: Let your child know that the divorce was not their fault. Make time to talk with your child often and ask them about their feelings. Make sure your child knows that despite the divorce issues his/her feelings still matter and they are still loved.
