Kim Kardashian has already reached a major milestone in her brief marriage to Kanye West: She has officially passed the 72-day mark!

Why is 72 days a "major milestone"? If you'll recall (or maybe you wisely blocked it from your memory — and in that case apologies!), that was the duration of the reality TV star's marriage to Kris Humphries. She then "blindsided" the NBA player with divorce papers, a split that then took 535 more days — seven times the length of their union! — to finalize.

Today, on her 73rd day as Kim Kardashian West, she seems happier in her role as wife — as these photos of her adventures as a newlywed will show you — though that happiness could also stem from the roughly 20 vacations they've gone on since marrying in Florence, Italy, on May 24. Or the hundreds of millions she will reportedly earn from her new app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Or the fact that she basically makes a living by posting bikini pics someone takes of her while she's reclining in a chaise lounge sipping Mai Tais.

Yep, life is good for Kim K. — and marriage to Kanye seems pretty good as well.

However, while we're throwing numbers at you, here's one more: three years. That was how long she was married to her first husband, Damon Thomas, before filing for divorce amid accusations that he abused her and tried to force her to have plastic surgery procedures she didn't want to have. (They married in 2000 and separated in 2003.) So once Kim and Kanye pass the three-year mark, then the reality TV star will really have reason to celebrate.

And she'll probably celebrate with another vacation. Seriously, that's all she seems to do.
