The May 24th wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may be postponed as one major detail was overlooked.
France has a residency requirement which stipulates one member (bride or groom) has to remain in France for a minimum of 40 days prior to wedding.Kanye has an apartment in Paris but lives there part-time.
The French Embassy in Washington DC told Radar Online: “All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorise the deputy mayor or a city councillor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements cannot be waived.”
How can something this major be overlooked?
That’s what happens when more attention is paid to the event than ‘purpose’.
I’m sure they will figure out a way to keep the ‘show on the road’, perhaps, going through the motions (if allowed) and have a civil ceremony back in the states at a later time.
Who knows? These two, I tell you!
