Hollywood: The 36-year-old rapper wants to have a “modern” relationship with the reality TV star and doesn’t want a wedding just because she birth to their daughter North in June.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Kanye is telling friends that he’ll never marry Kim.
“He has no need or desire to make their relationship official in the eyes of the law … Kanye prefers the idea of them as ‘partners’.
“He sees marriage as outdated and he’s all about embracing the modern and the new. He doesn’t feel like he has to marry Kim just because they have a [daughter] together.”
It’s said Kanye’s stance isn’t a problem for the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star, who is warming to the idea of their relationship being more “low-key”.
The insider said: “Kim feels like she’s been there, done that when it comes to a big, splashy wedding.
“She used to be so much more into the fame game, but now that she’s drifting away from the family and trying to do her own thing, she’s becoming more adamant about doing things on her own terms and keeping it low-key.
“It took her a while to learn the value of privacy, and to abandon the idea of another over-the-top wedding, but she’s getting there thanks to Kanye’s influence.”
