(Newser) – No more 72-day marriages for Kim Kardashian. She's apparently very serious about her PR-stunt-slash-relationship with Kanye West, based on an interview with New York magazine. She covers the fashion issue, and explains that it's fashion that brings the couple together. "If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went," she explains. "When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common."

She goes on to note that having things in common is "something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone," so perhaps that explains the aforementioned 72-day union. This time around, she can "get more in-depth" in her fashion discussions because West, who also has his own fashion line, "actually knows" what she's talking about, she says. "I think it’s essential to have similarities." (The article also reveals that, yes, Kim and Kanye have exchanged I love yous.) Radar also reports that Kim is eager to get her divorce finalized so she can marry West—and adds that the two of them also want to start a fa-, er, shoe line together.
