The Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian tied the knot with Travis Barker on May 22, 2022, and fans want to know why she chose him over Scott Disick. By marrying Travis, Kourtney changed the dynamic in her almost decade-long relationship with Scott. A lot of Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans know that Kourtney and Scott shared a deep love, which was evident in earlier episodes of the show. Fans can’t help but wonder why she never wanted to be Scott’s wife, even though she dated him for nine years.
After meeting in 2006, Kourtney and Scott had a rollercoaster relationship. When Keeping Up With the Kardashians launched in 2007, their relationship became one of the central storylines on the show. The Kar-Jenners didn’t like Scott at first, but this didn’t bother Kourtney very much. The couple had an on-and-off relationship, and she gave birth to their baby Mason Disick in 2009. Kourtney and Scott went on to welcome two more children, Penelope and Reign Disick. However, despite building a lovely family, their relationship was always on the verge of ending. There were many times when Kourtney accused Scott of infidelity, and they eventually split up, but later got back together. The problems that they experienced while dating are linked with Scott’s drinking issues, and a general lack of stability in the relationship.
Kourtney and Scott officially parted ways in 2015, when pictures of Scott getting cozy with his ex-girlfriend surfaced. After their breakup, both of them began to date other people. Following their split, the two co-parented their children. Eventually, Kourtney found her match in Blink-182 drummer, Travis. They got engaged in 2021, and married in 2022. This made fans wonder why Kourtney didn’t marry Scott instead, since they had a long-term relationship, and wonderful kids.
The Kardashians’ Kourtney Had Two Reasons For Not Marrying Scott
Kourtney had various issues with Scott, and there were two things that she considered deal-breakers. These problems made her decide to call it quits with him. During a Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion episode, she finally came clean: “The infidelity, I only knew about it at the end, so I think the substance abuse was the dealbreaker.” It seems like Kourtney wanted a mature relationship, but Scott’s cheating and partying made that goal unachievable.
When Scott proposed to Kourtney in 2007, during a trip to Las Vegas, she actually agreed to marry him. The couple got engaged, and were keen to marry within 24 hours. However, Kris Jenner didn’t want them to be husband and wife. The momager felt that a marriage would end in disaster, and believed that Kourtney might be rushing things. Eventually, Kris reached out to her daughter, convincing her not to marry Scott. He proposed to Kourtney again in 2011, but she turned him down, saying that she wasn’t ready to wed.
At present, Kourtney is happily married to Travis. He is more affectionate than Scott ever was. It seems like she always needed a loyal person by her side, whom she could rely on, and Scott didn’t provide that kind of consistency. Fans are hoping to learn more about Kourtney and Travis’ relationship on The Kardashians. At the moment, Kourtney and Scott share a sometimes-rocky friendship, and are successfully co-parenting their children.
