7 Shortest-Ever Celebrity Courtships
First came love then came a quickie engagement for these high-profile celeb couples. Sometimes things have worked out, other times not so much. Check out our favorite quick-to-the-altar twosomes of all time:
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the Kardashian family has proved they have staying power — and the same thing can be said of these two. They only dated for a month before getting hitched, but they’re still going strong three years after saying “I Do.”
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford
After just five months of dating, the Mumford and Sons lead singer popped the question to his actress girlfriend in 2011.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson
The former Mrs. Lachey began dating the ex-football player in May of 2010 shortly after Johnson’s separation from his wife. Six months later, the two announced their engagement.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
We all know how TomKat ended–but their marriage did last for five years after their whirlwind courtship.
Kate Walsh and Alex Young
The Private Practice star and her film executive ex-husband dated for 7 months before marrying in 2007. A year later, the two had split, with Walsh admitting that they had to resort to flipping a coin over disputed furniture.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
The wacky (and once adorable) couple met at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and announced their engagement three months later. After a 14-month-long marriage, Brand filed for divorce from the pop-star in late 2012.
Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett
You can say it was Lovett first sight (we couldn’t resist) when the actress met country singer Lyle Lovett in 1993. After just three weeks together, Roberts became a barefoot bride and wed the man that would only be her hubby for 21 months.
