Lamar Odom is now in an L.A. hospital following last week's near death experience in Nevada. Khloe Kardashian served as medical power of attorney while he was in a coma, because their divorce was not yet final, which made her his legal next of kin.
Now it seems that divorce will never become final. Khloe Kardashian reportedly sent her lawyer to the Los Angeles County Superior Court clerk's office on Wednesday morning, to file a request for the dismissal of their divorce petition. That means Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may in fact remain husband and wife.
Attorney Laura Wasser signed on behalf of Khloe Kardashian while former NBA champion Odom signed on his own behalf, according to TMZ, which was the first source to break the news. The final divorce petition had been waiting since July 21 for a judge's approval, which was delayed by a backup in the court system.

Khloe Kardashian vowed to stay by Lamar Odom's side in the coming months as he works with physical therapists and doctors to get well. The two reportedly had a conversation in the past few days, and decided it was well worth giving their marriage another shot.
Do you think Khloe Kardashian is acting out of both lack of sleep and fear? Surely she wouldn't have wanted Lamar Odom to die--but does that necessarily mean she still wants to be married to him?

Hopefully as Lamar Odom's health improves, Khloe Kardashian will insist upon some rehab for his drug issues. Without that, they'll likely wind up back in divorce court yet again.
How do you suppose James Harden feels about Khloe's decision to call off her divorce to Lamar Odom? He had graciously stepped aside when Lamar was found unconscious--giving Khloe the space she needed to tend to his medical matters. Harden probably never imagined things would wind up this way.
Do you think this is the beginning of a new and better life together for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, or do you think it's simply delaying the inevitable? Will Khloe and Lamar wind up getting divorced some time down the road?
