Will they or won't they get married? That's the question we keep asking about Kourtney Kardashian and her longtime boyfriend Scott Disick. Disick has made it no secret that he's ready to take the plunge -- and that it's his girlfriend of five years who's holding up their nuptials. But it seems as though he might be ready to stop pushing the question.
During an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that airs this Sunday, Disick, 28, raises the matter again to Kardashian (who's currently pregnant with their second child). The reality star, 33, has never been eager to walk down the aisle -- but it seems she made a promise in the past that she would tie the knot.
"I know that I'm indecisive but I'm not indecisive with you. I'm obviously committed to us, even though we're not getting married, and I thought that that was understood," she says in clip from episode.
But it clearly wasn't, as Disick gets pretty riled up.
"The whole reason I had another kid with you is because you agreed to get married if we had another kid," he says. But Kourtney butts in: "But not while I'm pregnant!"
"No," he acknowledges, "but now I'm over it. You broke the contract -- you broke the deal. The deal was if you want another kid -- doesn't matter [if you were pregnant]. Whatever. Anything. But obviously you're so indecisive and you go back on your word that I'm not going to keep trying with you forever."
Ouch. Honestly, all of this seems like a lot of unnecessary drama. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went through a similar situation -- first they didn't want to get married and now they do for their kids -- with much less spectacle. Though, of course, they haven't had cameras recording their every conversation for years!
But it seems like Kardashian and Disick might be building this up to be a big conflict... drum roll please... in order to build ratings if and when they finally do agree to marry later on this season. Kardashian is fit to pop with her second child any day now. So maybe she's just waiting until after she gives birth, so she can shed the bay weight pre-wedding, the same way Jessica Simpson is.
In the past, Kardashian has credited her reluctance to get married with watching her mother's marriage with Robert Kardashian disintegrate in front of her. But thanks to a lot of couples therapy over the past few years, she and Disick have managed to stay happy together for their own sakes -- and for the sake of their 2-year-old son, Mason.
