Kim Kardashian West has shared some rather hard truths about what marriage to rapper Kanye West really looks like.

From that stunning proposal, their whirlwind Italian wedding to their peak extra date nights and regular flower walls – the life of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West looks very glamourous.

But the Kardashian star admits that being his wife has come at a very high price – her independence. 

Speaking to actor Alec Baldwin on his self-titled chat show, she shared, “I think being with a man like Kanye, you have to learn how to be a little bit not-so-independent.” 

“I’ve always been so independent, and working, and [had a] schedule, and when you get married and have a husband with a career and kids, your independence … you have to let it go. I had to learn that being with a man like Kanye.”

The mum-of-three also address her husband’s unique and often outspoken views, remarking that she lets “him be who he wants to be.” 

“I let him have his own views and opinions, even if they’re different than mine.”

The pair married in May 2014, and since then Kardashian says her need for attention has lessened.

“We’d get our hair and makeup done filming,” she said of taping Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “When we’d be done I’d was like, ‘What is the hottest restaurant Hollywood? Where can I go? Where can I be seen?’”

“It started with Kanye … everything had to be public for me back then. And so I had to kind of flip it. Now, on my time off, I’m like, ‘Where are the locations that I can go eat, go on vacation, where no one will see us?’ All I want it privacy.”

The couple are parents to their three children together, 5-year-old North, 2-year-old Saint and 9-month old Chicago.
