What Have Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Taught Each Other?

A successful marriage relies on respect, love, and a desire to grow with your partner. Just shy of their five-year wedding anniversary, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West continue to learn new things about each other every day and come together to make their marriage work.

In a recent Vogue interview, Kardashian revealed the biggest lessons they have taught each other.

Confidence doesn’t come easy

To the world, it may seem like Kardashian is full of confidence. After all, how can you have your life filmed 24/7, appear on magazines half-nude, and live such a public life without an exorbitant amount of confidence? But Kardashian admitted that confidence is a trait she learned from West.

In a 2018 interview, Kardashian said:

“He is so confident. He would always build up my confidence to be who I want to be, and so I’ll voice my opinion when I think there’s something that is maybe done wrong — or even if the messaging is right [and] the communication isn’t quite there to figure that out.”

Perhaps it is this gained confidence made Kardashian comfortable pursuing her dream to become a lawyer.

Kardashian taught her husband about money

Even the rich and famous need a few lessons on money management. Just look at the many once-famous stars who had millions and lost it all. Kardashian says that the one lesson that she taught her husband is how to manage his finances,

“I am proud to say that I’ve taught him, I’ve given him really good financial advice on saving.”

Though West claims he doesn’t always listen to his wife’s advice, he must have been listening last Christmas. When asked what her favorite gift from her husband was, Kardashian revealed that she received a pair of Apple headphone, a pair of Adidas socks, and Mickey Mouse. She admits that initially she was disappointed in the gifts until West explained the meaning behind the gift.

It turns out, West bought Kardashian stocks in Apple, Adidas, and Disney. For someone who claims to not listen to his wife’s financial advice, it sounds like he got her a pretty great gift.

They’ve learned to lean on each other

Throughout the last five years, Kardashian and West have faced their share of challenges and taught each other a lot. From the trivial matters to the important stuff, they have come to support each other and trust one another.

Kardashian has been open about their marriage and talks about how the couple makes it work. She revealed that early in their marriage, West made a major change to her wardrobe. He asked her if he could make a few changes and she came home to discover that her wardrobe had been completely overhauled. But Kardashian admits, her husband was right. She listened to him, changed her style, and is better for it.

When it comes to the tough stuff, they’re there for each other too. West recently revealed that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The couple has had to come together to figure out how they were going to face this diagnosis.

Kardashian admitted, “It is an emotional process, for sure. Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.”

She knows when to be supportive, when to stand back, and when to stand up for her husband.

“That’s my husband. I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something’s wrong. Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode, I’ll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation.”
