So, Kim Kardashian recently made the news for her massively obscene, 20-carat, $2.5 million engagement ring, that, IMHO, didn’t look like a ring so much as a huge rock shat out by a mountain and dropped right onto the only band that could support it.

She got that monstrosity from pro basketball player Kris Humphries, and it makes me wonder as to your feelings about marrying into the sports world.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and say that pro athletes are a good or a bad choice for marriage, because I don’t even know one pro athlete personally. But they certainly do come with some unique circumstances: fame, the adoration of millions, a hectic travel schedule, and a shit-ton of money. Tiger Woods, for instance, the most notoriously bad choice for marriage, is still the highest paid athlete in the world.

Some women love them; I think they even have their own television show. But I personally am not sure that I could handle it. I wouldn’t like being away from my partner that much, and I’d be lying if I said that the groupie situation wouldn’t bother me.

What about you?
