Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are still experiencing issues in their marriage

Despite their recent reconciliation, things are still pretty rocky between Kardashian West and West.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the pair are continuing to fall on hard times in their marriage. Though Kardashian West has been trying to keep her relationship with the rapper intact these last few months, insiders report that she’s grown tired of putting in the work.

“Kim is exhausted from continually trying but keeps their vows in mind when making any pertinent decisions. And Kanye is working on his psychological health and mental state,” the source shared. “The family and Kanye are still in contact and everyone wants the best for Kanye, Kim, their kids and the rest of the family.”

The source added that Kardashian believes West “needs to work on himself before he can work on the well-being of anyone else.”

Kim Kardashian West is trying to figure out whether she and Kanye West should stay together

While the rapper continues to work on his mental health, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been trying to determine whether they should remain a couple or go their separate ways.

The source added, “Kim’s family will support her in any decision she makes, but she feels that the most important thing to recognize before making any choice is realizing what’s best for the kids, herself, Kanye and the rest of the family, essentially in that order.”

Contemplating her future with West isn’t a first for the reality star.

Following the “Selah” rapper’s controversial presidential rally in South Carolina and his series of Twitter rants this past summer, media outlets reported that Kardashian West was considering divorce.

“Kim is considering her options when it comes to her future with Kanye,” a source told Us Weekly in September. “She is stressed out between studying law, taking care of the kids and helping Kanye.”

Before then, it was reported that Kardashian West had met with divorce lawyers to explore her options.

But despite the idea of divorce crossing her mind, Kardashian West stayed with her husband, and soon, they began working together to improve their marriage.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West were just in each other’s good graces

In August 2020, the Wests spent a few weeks away from the spotlight to vacation with their four kids and breathe new life into their marriage.

Though the couple continued living apart after returning home from their low-key getaway, they kept putting in the work to keep their marriage intact.

Then in October, it was reported that Kardashian West and West’s relationship had improved immensely after the rapper went all out for his wife’s 40th birthday.

“Things have definitely improved between Kim and Kanye,” a source told HollywoodLife at the time, “and their relationship hits highs and lows like any marriage.”

According to insiders, the rapper’s special gift to the reality star — a hologram of her late father Rob Kardashian Sr. — ultimately helped him get back in her good graces and put their marriage back on track.

“Kanye really stepped up for her birthday,” the insider added. He “showed [Kim] the Kanye she fell in love with from the start. It was really the push they needed to get back to where they’ve always been. They’re on really good terms right now, and they love each other.”

Hopefully, Kardashian West and West can soon get back to the place they were in before because we would hate to see this celebrity pair end their marriage after all these years.
