Kris Humphries was surprised to learn that his wife, Kim Kardashian, had filed for divorce today, just 72 days after they exchanged the words "I do" in front of 440 guests.
"I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce," he said in a statement to People, after Kardashian's divorce paperwork was rumored earlier today and later confirmed by Kardashian herself.
Humphries had told several friends that he does not believe in divorce, reports say. Now, he confirmed that he does not seeing splitting as the best option. "I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents," he said. "I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
Humphries had apparently hoped that Kardashian's ambitions of fame would ebb and that she would move to the Midwest with him to start a family. "How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?" Kardashian said as the two discussed this in a recently-released teaser preview for the second season of "Kourtney& Kim Take New York."
"Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, nobody will probably care about you," he responded. It was just another sign that the couple was far from on the same page.
The show premieres on E! on Nov. 27 and will chronicle the couple's issues during their first two months of marriage.
