Kourtney Kardashian Defending Boyfriend Scott Disick

Have You Ever Had to Defend Your Partner?

Reality star Kourtney Kardashian is defending her boyfriend Scott Disick again, and it has nothing to do with his decision to wear pink pants. Kourtney calls the father of her baby "very loving and sensitive," which might come as a surprise to TV audiences who often see him acting immature and drunk.

On last night's episode of Kourtney & Khloe, Kourtney added to her family's concerns by complaining that Scott stays out until 5 a.m. even though he has a newborn. But the oldest Kardashian sister said yesterday that Scott is a great father: "I love watching him with Mason. He makes him crack up so hard. He makes him laugh. It's fun to see them together." It's clear that despite Scott's apparent issues, she's not ready to move on.

Have you ever had to defend your partner when it seemed like everyone else was telling you he was wrong for you?

I had to constantly defend an old boyfriend. He had a history of partying hard in high school, and both of my sisters (who are very close in age to him and I) knew that. If they would make comments about the fact that he seemed "shady" I would always defend him and justify what he was doing.However, I ultimately learned that they were right about him, as was everyone else who didn't approve of our relationship. My current boyfriend has been with me for six months and I have not had to defend him once, which is how it should be :]

Aside from extreme cases, like SKG's example, I am with le romantique. It's different to have to defend your relationship to one or two haters (I'd say that's probably inevitable), but if I had to defend my relationship to a lot of people... let's just say I would take a long hard look at the guy and try to understand why I can't see what everyone else can. And I think Scott Disick seems like a douche, too. Not as bad as Spencer Pratt's douche status, but both Pratt & Disick have made an image out of being giant douches. There's something to be said for that.

No I never had. If is someone I had to defend, he is probably not the guy for me. In Kourtney's case, her family is right. Scot seems like such a dutch.

Nope, I really value the opinions of the people I surround myself with so if they told me to take a closer look at my boy, I would.

Wow, spacekatgal. That's terrible. I can't imagine why/how anyone could hate an entire sex.Like others have said, I wouldn't date anyone I had to defend. When people call someone out, there's usually a reason. Sometimes when you're in love you just don't notice it. That said, if a friend or acquaintance called my boyfriend out, I wouldn't run home and be like, "Oh I HAVE to breakup with him." I would just pay extra close attention to what she was talking about. If I deemed it a problem, THEN I'd break up with him. (Some people are just always going to be picky about their friends' boyfriends no matter what!)

Yep. Now, many years later, everybody realize what a gem my husband is. When I first dated my husband, he was a diamond in the rough. I was one of the very few people who recognized that, and fell in love with him. Incidentally, there was a woman who rejected him, who realized too late what a catch he was (he and I were exclusively dating each other for about six months). She tried to win him back. Long story short, I basically confronted him, and told him he could go back to her if he chose, but for him to realize that I knew how special he was from the get-go. If he wanted to forsake me for her, that's fine, but for him to realize that truth. Needless to say, he chose to stay in our relationship (which later led to marriage), and he gently told that woman he was in a serious relationship with me (in hopes that she would back off). The woman accepted that, and we never heard from her again. Wow, I went off on a tangent. :)

I did when I was younger and oh what a mistake that was. The guy was a loser. I feel now that if you have to defend your partner to everyone then you really don't know them or you are just hiding from the truth cause you don't want to believe it.

When I was younger, yes, and usually when people rag on someone that hard, there's a REASON! If you have to defend him, you should probably take a long hard look at his true character.

yeah, but to my super judgmental sister. she thinks she's better than everyone, so she talks sh!t about everybody. but since she's my sister, i defend my bfs/friends/whatever who she thinks aren't good enough.
