Yeah-yeah, she got you homie
'til death but do your part, unholy matrimony
A divorce isn’t necessarily a complete separation, because laws like alimony (spousal support) tie the once-married couple together economically after the fact. Until recently, alimony was a law in place to “assure the wife’s lodging, food, clothing, and other necessities after divorce.”
Kanye also describes the perverse nature of alimony law by making slight variations on phrases usually used for marriage: “holy matrimony” and “‘til death do us part.” In My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy he already stated that the traditional marriage rules didn’t fit him and his girl:
With the themes of pregnancy, loveless marriages and broken careers running through this song, it is worth considering Kanye may be dealing with feelings of uncertainty and fright about his own relationship with Kim Kardashian by crafting a fictionalized version of it in which he can cathartically release his darker, paranoid fantasies about it. But rest easy, Yeezy! Kim’s too rich to qualify for alimony.
