I can now say openly, without fear of Randy hunting me down and beating me to death: I f***ing hated kim couture. Actually I said that all of the time when they were still together. lol.




Something about her was always off IMO. When she started fighting MMA it really made me dislike her. Mark my words- I guarantee you she will never fight again.



I think she will. I think she'll fall off the face of the earth very quickly but I'm sure there will be some promotion who will settle for a semi-famous ex-wife for one, maybe two fights.

To whoever said that if someone gets divorced twice they shouldn't remarry-what a load of BS!My old man was divorced twice before he met my mother.They've been happily married for 25 years now,and they will be together until the day they die.

As for Kim-she'll be fine.She was doing very well as an executive at one of the big time Vegas casinos before they met.She'll probably just go back to doing that.She most likely was just fighting because it's the sport her husband loves,and she wanted to be able to share that experience with him.I would be suprised if she continues fighting-if she does,it won't be for money,it will be because she enjoys it.

WB.

Uhh who was judging? the guy has problems with commitments..... I feel bad for Kim for being blindsided by all this, as it says, nobody expected this.




No-offence. What do know about Randy's personal life?
You are assuming alot here. The fact is, nobody knows what really goes on between a man and wife apart from themselves.

If you want to judge him, judge him as a fighter, not as a person.




I get what you're saying but again, I'm not trying to judge the guy at all since I cant, I dont know him well enough to try and give him advice. I see you chose to only quote parts you wanted so I'll say this to put it in perspective, if someone gets divorced 3 times, usually they're the problem. Maybe he has a bad taste in women or picks the wrong ones, either way I never disrespected the guys accomplishments. You have to expect that someones gonna ask themself just how committed he is to the committments he makes? and its not an unreasonable question.

EDIT: apparently I havnt made myself clear in the last 2-3 posts, I am not calling his character into question. I'm simply percieving how he handles his committments, he knew the risks of getting married, 3 different times. I still have no sympathy for wife jumpers or just people who cant stay with one person. I would do anything for a chance at true love and people throw that away everyday. I pity Randy more than anything.




If you are simply percieving how he handles his commitments......you would have to do alot more that read a post on a website. You may have to actually get to know the full details about his life and the circumstances surrounding each divorce.

But now you pity him too?!

You know NOTHING about the situation. People are too qucik to give thier opinions about things that is a) none of thier business and b) they know little/nothing about.

I did, he fled from his UFC obligations, thus applying to what Ive been saying.

Yeah, if you read the context of what Im saying its that I feeling sorry for the guy that he cant find happiness. What is wrong with stating that? nothing

1) If they had problems, ok good for them obviously if I cared enough about it I'd try and find out, but a 3rd divorce is hard to care about lol plus I've never known anyone who divorced 2 times let alone 3 times. Could this possibly mean anything? perhaps marriage is not for him like its not for half of ppl who go thru with it.

2) Dude, you're on an open forum in a thread talking about a divorce, you really didnt see this coming? if not you're naive or need to stop posting if you get offended by mild speculation at worst. If your argument is its none of your business then its not yours either and you're being a hypocrite. What I've been saying is hardly out of line and its becoming clear you just dont get it. I understand what youve been saying but you dont understand me (since your purposly misintepreted me 3-4 times) so lets just part ways. peace.

I think its a fair assumption to say at the least that Randy has some kind of commitment issues. Between his fallout with Team Quest, his wanderlust lifestyle, his divorces, and his contractual woes isn't it obvious?

My opinion is that Randy is a passionate person, and a lot of times when you're that passionate about whatever you do, people find it hard to keep up with that intensity. The guy has been great at every single thing he's tried to my knowledge, but in saying that, it's fairly obvious to me that he's found himself restless and unsatisfied throughout his life several times.

I don't think I'm insulting him by saying that, nor do I think anybody else speculating is insulting him. We're here to discuss the world of MMA and its happenings. Randy is a prominent figure in that world. It is nice to see people defending his honor, though.

Randy Couture is an amazing athlete, but I've never really been a fan of his. After reading his autobiography, I was alienated from him further just because of how he treated the women in his life.
