Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have become a lightning rod for both controversy and attention. Not surprisingly, their wedding is to be one of the celebrity highlights of the year. Yet, Kimye may have encountered a minor hiccup in their plans to get married in France. According to an April 8 story by E! Online, a French law requiring individuals to met a 40 day residency requirement has thrown a wrench into the plans of Hollywood’s newest power couple.

The couple has not announced their plans for dealing with this latest roadblock, but one can only imagine that any solution will involve spending ample time in France. Not exactly a bad way to pass 40 days.

Considering Kim and Kanye’s preference for flamboyance, one would expect that the wedding would be a large and elaborate ceremony. Yet, it seems that the two lovebirds are more interested in having a private ceremony with a group of family and friends.

As we are going along, we realize we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking" - Kim Kardashian

Do you think France’s 40 day residency requirement will dash Kim and Kanye’s dreams of a European wedding?
