Some couples are in such a rush to get married. Once the engagement ring is on the finger, they practically run down the aisle. There is something to be said about a long engagement. It gives people more of an opportunity to make sure that they are really compatible – but don’t tell these celebrities that! While some of them are still together despite rushing down the aisle, there are a number of them who aren’t. Marriages end for all kinds of reasons; however, for a few of these celebrities, we definitely think the quick engagement may have played a part. Here are 7 of Hollywood’s shortest celebrity engagements!

7. Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting

Length of Engagement: 3 Months

According to one of Kaley Cuoco’s pals, she knew pretty early on that Ryan Sweeting was the one. We sure hope that’s the case because these two had quite the whirlwind romance. After her breaking up with Henry Cavill after only 12 days of dating, she quickly jumped into another relationship with the tennis pro. They dated for only three months before they became engaged and then three months later they were married.

Many thought that her quickie engagement and marriage was just her way to sticking it to Cavill. We can see why some people would think that. Cuoco’s relationship with Sweeting practically played out in the press. From the very beginning, these two were constantly papped together. For the Emmys, she even brought him as her date, posing with him on the red carpet. When he finally did pop the question, the wedding ring was debuted to the paps. Maybe we’re just really cynical and Sweeting and Cuoco are just really in love, but something tells us this one isn’t going to last.

6. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Length of Engagement: 3 Months

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline had a whirlwind courtship. They had only been dating for a few months when the pop star asked her backup dancer to marry her. Although he initially said no because he didn’t think he was right for the girl to propose, he asked her to marry him a few minutes after he rejected her proposal. Thee months later, they were married in a secret ceremony.

The marriage only lasted two years. After having her second child with Federline, she filed for divorce. No one was that surprised. When they had initially met, he was with Shar Jackson, who was seven months pregnant with his child at the time. He quickly dumped her and started dating the pop princess. In hindsight, Spears has said that she married him for all of the wrong reasons. “Instead of following my heart and doing something that made me really happy, I just did it for the idea of everything,” she said.
