Amidst all the stories of how lonely Kim Kardashian West is, or how she doesn't like Kanye's controlling behavior toward her, she is not giving up so easily in this marriage. She shows her determination or dedication to being Kanye's wife when she legally changed her passport name to include West.

Kim made the announcement on her Instagram page to all her loyal followers. The captain read, “New passport pic #Mrs.West #NameChange.” She posted her new passport photo, which shows her famous frontal asset of cleavage in a low-cut outfit. According to Us Magazine, it is the same Ulyana Sergeenko outfit she wore on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show on August 4, 2014.

Us Magazine reports that less than one week before Kanye asked Kim to marry him, he told Ryan Seacrest in an interview that Kim would take his last name. Kanye expressed his thoughts about the future Mrs. Kim West. “Saying ‘Hey, I like Kim’ isn’t as inspiring to people as us getting married. And. anyone that’s in a relationship knows that in order to get to the point to get married and then to be married and to then carry on, it needs that work put into it. Right now, people look at it and it’s like, ‘Wow, that’s inspiring.’”

Kim’s mother didn’t want Kim to change her last name to West. Allegedly, it would hurt Kim’s marketable image, which means a loss of income for Kris because she is Kim's manager. However, Kanye seemed adamant that she would take on his name and his demands have been fullfilled.

Kim’s marriage to Kanye has lasted several days longer than the one she had with Kris Humphries. That marriage lasted 72 days.

According to Starcasm, Kanye shared with GQ what marrying his beloved Kim meant to him. He said, "It’s an unfair level of awesomeness in one person to be that smart, to be that nice, to be … blatantly fine as hell," he said of his future bride at the time. "Like, one of the most beautiful people of all time. She’s not hard to wake up to."

Time will reveal how long Kim and Kanye’s marriage will last. Even with her name change on legal documents, nothing seems to last forever in the stars of the TV reality world.
