The photos come as Kim and Kanye - who share North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one - face marriage troubles.
The rapper took to the social media platform to once again comment on Kim's almost abortion of their first child, a story he mentioned during his presidential rally in South Carolina.10She shared them in tribute to fashion designer Riccardo Credit: Instagram 10Kim on the phone in the wedding dressCredit: Instagram 10The star shared these photos despite reports of marriage problemsCredit: Instagram
He wrote: "I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me…
“I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject.”
The Grammy winner then tweeted, “There is a tactic of 4 D’s Distract Discredit Dismiss To Destroy.
“I am quite alright. Take a second and think about what is being projected here.”10The star playing around with the fabricCredit: Instagram 10The wedding dress in fullCredit: Instagram
In the now infamous rally, Kanye, 43, touched on how he and Kim, 39, considered aborting North, but changed their mind at the very last minute.
In the speech he revealed he “did not want to” have the child, and Kim was ready to end the pregnancy and “had the pills in her hand.”
The musician claimed a message from God had him calling his then-girlfriend back up and telling her: “We’re going to have this child.”
Kanye then began sobbing and yelled, "I almost killed my daughter!”10Kanye broke down at the infamous rallyCredit: Alamy Live News 10Kim and Kanye and their four kidsCredit: Instagram
Since the rally, the couple's marriage have reportedly hit a snag as Kim feels trapped, according to People.
A source said: "This is a very sad time for her. She’s really upset. Kim feels trapped.
"She loves Kanye and she thinks of him as the love of her life. But she doesn't know what to do.

The insider continued: "She knows that it's not healthy for her to be around him now, and it's honestly not healthy for the kids.
"He needs to get his stuff together before he can be any sort of partner or father."
Despite everything, the source added that Kim still "wants the best for Kanye,” and she will “always want what's best for him."Most read in Celebrity'i love her'Dog sobs and says he would have wanted Beth to move on if he had died instead‘TRUE STORY'Lea Thompson agrees it's 'common knowledge' Ellen treats people 'horribly'VictoryNicki Minaj's husband Kenneth will be at child's birth after judge grants requestNOT OVEREllen DeGeneres staffers fear show will be axed- but executive producer says noUNDER FIREEllen’s ‘horrible’ behavior is ‘common knowledge,’ actor Brad Garrett claimsExclusiveGOOD WILLWill.i.am feels like he has 750 kids after putting them through uni

A Divorce Could Have a Big Impact on Your Retirement Savings
Germany’s own version of ‘Jaws’ involves a wild boar 8 Things in Your Freezer You Should Toss Out A Divorce Could Have a Big Impact on Your Retirement Savings
Divorce can affect your life in many ways. Unfortunately, one big way it could have an impact is by making it harder to retire.© Provided by The Motley Fool A Divorce Could Have a Big Impact on Your Retirement Savings
Divorce can affect your retirement security because the process itself can be costly and you may drain your savings to pay for legal support. If you lose a portion of your retirement savings to your spouse or your household income goes down after divorce and you find it difficult to continue saving, that could also reduce the size of your nest egg.
But just how much can ending a marriage affect your later years? Data from the National Institute for Retirement Security (NIRS) reveals that the consequences can be dire if you don't act.© Getty Images Wedding cake with cake toppers looking away from each other. Here's the impact of divorce on your retirement account balance
According to NIRS, divorced people have less money in their individual retirement accounts than the married do. While the mean value of independently owned defined contribution accounts is $84,874 for married men and $50,126 for married women, those numbers drop to $58,951 for a divorced man and $38,613 for a divorced woman.
Married people also, unsurprisingly, have more retirement money for their households. For example, the mean value of household defined contribution accounts is $136,055 for married men, while it's the same $58,951 for the divorced.
With such a discrepancy between the size of the average account balance, it's probably no surprise that NIRS showed the elderly poor are more likely to be divorced than married elderly Americans or seniors as a whole.
The news gets worse for women, as those who divorce tend to do worse than men in terms of their retirement savings. However, women who divorce early in life aren't hit as hard as those who end a marriage later, since they have more time to bulk up their own retirement savings account balance.How to protect your retirement security in case of divorce
Divorce can make it more difficult to save, because household income usually falls when you become the only earner while expenses rise once you're maintaining two separate households rather than just one. And, as mentioned, the costs of ending the marriage itself can affect wealth, as can losing some of your retirement money in the divorce.
There are, however, some steps you can take to make sure that ending your marriage doesn't mean ending the dream of a secure retirement. Some options include:
- Understanding how Social Security spousal benefits work. If you were married at least 10 years, you may be entitled to spousal or survivor benefits even after a divorce. If your ex was a higher earner than you, look into whether claiming benefits on his or her work record could help you get larger Social Security checks.
- Prioritizing retirement savings. As soon as your marriage has come to an end, start rebuilding your budget with a focus on saving for the future. Take stock of where you are when it comes to your account balance, set a savings goal based on retiring without a spouse, and automate contributions to your retirement accounts to hit your target. This goal can be difficult to achieve in the aftermath of a failed marriage, but aim to begin investing as much as you can, as soon as possible.
- Making smart investment choices. If you relied on your ex to make choices about what your accounts should be invested in, dedicate yourself to learning the fundamentals of investing as soon as possible after your divorce. Earning a better return on investment can only help your nest egg grow.
By reworking your budget as soon as possible after divorce and making sure retirement savings is a top priority, you maximize your chances of achieving the retirement security you deserve even without help from your ex.
