While Kris Humphries initially opposed Kim Kardashian's decision to end their marriage and file for divorce, he now apparently just hopes to make it as so their brief union never officially existed.

The 26-year-old New Jersey Nets star's representative told Us Weekly that Humphries will seek a legal separation from his wife of 72 days, a move that is the first step toward receiving an annulment of their marriage.

According to Us, if Humphries' request is granted, the pair won't have to deal with any divorce proceedings as an annulment would deem the marriage to have been legally invalid.

Humphries and Kardashian got engaged in May after six months of dating and then wed in late August in front of 450 guests at a private estate in Montecito, CA. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York star subsequently filed for divorce on October 31 citing irreconcilable differences.

"I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents," Humphries told TMZ earlier this month.

"I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce... I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
