Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom To Wed

Khloe Kardashian, 25, and Lamar Odom, 29, are set to marry this weekend, just one month after they met, and with just a few days' notice to friends and family.
I've followed Lamar Odom's basketball career since his college days, and have always rooted for him in part because he had a pretty rough childhood, essentially raising himself. But he has already fathered two young children with a prior girlfriend whom he never married, and a third tragically died of SIDS as an infant in 2006. He was also suspended by the NBA in 2001 for violating the league's anti-drug policy. Khloe seems to be most "famous" (if that's the word) for being a supporting character on a reality TV show on E! about her family called "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," and was herself arrested for DUI in 2007.
Maybe this will turn out to be a powerful, if unconventional, love story for the ages, like in a romance novel. Time will tell, I suppose.
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee wed impetuously at a resort in Mexico in 1995, after having known each other for less than a week. When you're driving on the road of life, it's probably wise to think twice before getting off at the exit marked with a big sign reading, "Pam and Tommy Welcome You!"
