Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got hitched in Italy over the weekend, in front of a 200-person gathering of family, friends and John Legend.
To keep their nuptials private (and, presumably, to fuel WWIII, i.e. the bidding war for their wedding photos), Kimye had a no cellphones rule at all events.
a tree falls in the woods, and no one’s around to hear it, does it make a sound? Kim and Kanye get married and it’s not all over Instagram, does it count?

Every year, an estimated 14 million girls under the age of 18 are married with little or no say in the matter.
