Khloe Kardashian suspends divorce with Lamar Odom

Residents of Orange County may know of Lamar Odom due to his successful basketball career or his television show "Khloe & Lamar". Odom married reality star Khloe Kardashian within a month of meeting one another in 2009 and shared their lives through the camera lenses with America on their show. They appeared generally happy on the show. But things weren't just as they appeared.

Substance abuse problems continued to rear their ugly heads with Odom, as he was arrested for driving under the influence and his refusal to take a sobriety test. He reportedly then checked into a rehabilitation facility, but his time there was short lived, checking out the next day.

A month later, Kardashian cited irreconcilable differences and filed for divorce. The papers were signed this year, but hadn't yet been finalized, when Odom hit the headlines again. On Oct. 13, Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. During his time recovering, Kardashian has been reportedly by his bedside for much of the time, making medical decisions for him as well. During this time, it has been reported that the couple have put the divorce on hold, according to an unnamed source.

Considering that both spouses are presumably very wealthy from their successes on the basketball court and on television, there is a possibility that if and when they do follow through with the divorce, it will be a complex divorce. It is not known whether they had a prenuptial agreement. However, in general a prenuptial agreement can save couples headaches and heartache if they do decide to divorce. Couples can also create a postnuptial agreement to protect their property, if they did not create a prenuptial agreement prior to walking down the aisle.
