Kim Kardashian covers the December 2011 issue of Marie Claire Magazine, where she mainly talks about her marriage to Kris Humphries.

In the interview, conducted just weeks before the reality TV star filed for divorce from her husband after only 72 days of marriage, Kim talks about her million dollar nuptials, how she’s “not worried” about her relationship with Kris because “we have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that,” and a lot of other topics that seem a lot more awkward now that we all know that her marriage was a complete sham.

Peep the excerpts below:

When asked about the numbers (about her wedding), Kim smiles demurely, “I don’t talk about money.” And yet she, like the rest of her family, talks about virtually everything else, in front of millions of people. To the Kardashians, making Kim’s wedding into a media circus was a no-brainer. “I felt like if I didn’t show the wedding, it would be upsetting for people who have taken this journey with me,” Kim says earnestly.

The whirlwind courtship of Kim and Kris raised some eyebrows, including carefully plucked ones within her own family, but Kim is blasé about her rush to the altar. “We felt like, ‘Why wait?'” she explains. “It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.”

On Kris:
“I’m not worried about him at all. We have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy. He’s such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it’s such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it. Sometimes my life can be really intimidating for people, but he allows me to work and do what I’ve gotta do.”

On her first marriage to music producer Damon Thomas:
“I was 19, and I didn’t know myself. As unhappy as I was, and as happy as I am now not to be in that relationship, I learned so much from it: who I wanted to be, who I never wanted to be — you take all those issues and move on. I learned how to cook and do a lot of marital things. It definitely taught me what being a wife is all about. I think it means taking care of each other’s needs and being there for someone unconditionally.”

On her family’s reality shows:
“We made a pact as a family and said we would be truly authentic because people don’t buy bull—. We’ll just be who we are, and – love it or hate it – we have each other. I think that’s what makes it so relatable, because we are not afraid to show crazy things.”
