A funny thing happened when Kim Kardashian was a newlywed: She sat down with Marie Claire to dole out relationship advice.

Quite possibly the world’s most famous recent divorcee, Kardashian explained why she and estranged husband Kris Humphries couldn’t wait to run down the aisle.

Kim gushed, “We felt like, ‘Why wait?'” she told Marie Claire. “It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.”

Back in the good old days – perhaps September – Kim said she absolutely adored being married and that it was “the best time in [her] life.”

Although Marie Claire tried to flip it, the damage (and jokes) were already done. After her short-lived marriage when she was just 19, Kim says she learned what makes a marriage work. She even shared some tips with the magazine’s readers about what makes a happy marriage.

So what was Kim Kardashian’s top tip for a successful relationship? Being there.

She told Marie Claire magazine, “I think it means taking care of each other’s needs and being there for someone unconditionally.”

…for 72 days.

Kim’s full interview will be in the December issue of Marie Claire.
