Making their marriage their business

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West know how to make money, and they know how to keep it. Their marriage won't be any different, as the couple has decided to keep their assets completely separate.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West make up one of the most powerful couples in Hollywood, and they know it. The couple has reportedly decided to sign a prenuptial agreement before being married, TMZ says.

Kimye got engaged earlier this week during a show on West's new tour, and it looks like they're already looking forward to being husband and wife. Both Kardashian and West are committed to the relationship, but they also both got to where they are because of their business savvy. This decision seems no different.

Kardashian's father Robert was a lawyer and TMZ said he instilled in his daughter the importance of legal documentation for anything involving money. Because both Kardashian and West have millions of their own, they have reportedly decided to keep assets separate, while having a joint bank account for living expenses only.

Although no one actually knows exactly what either Kardashian or West is worth, estimates are around $40 million for Kardashian and $90 million for West. If Kardashian's 15-carat engagement ring is any indication, neither of them has to worry about sharing an income.

Kardashian posted a photo of her ring Tuesday on Instagram.

Despite the couple's differences and their past relationship failures, this relationship really seems like it could last. Not only are they committed to each other, but they have a child and were friends before ever getting together. The prenup seems like a good decision, and while it's easy to look at it as a lack of faith in each other, the newly engaged couple has been through a lot together and can obviously weather almost any situation.
