The 7 Shortest Celebrity Engagements

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.

5. Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey

Length of Engagement: 3 Months

2013 was a pretty eventful year for Naya Rivera. She was engaged to Big Sean; however, they ended up calling their engagement off. It was pretty messy. She accused him of stealing from her and he accused her of being paranoid and of being a liar. A few months later, she shocked everyone when she announced that she was married. She tied the knot with her longtime friend, Ryan Dorsey, in the Monique Lhuillie dress that she was supposed to wear at her wedding with Big Sean.

Rivera’s marriage to Dorsey came as a huge shock to everyone, including her friends. “Naya didn’t tell most of her friends that she was marrying Ryan Dorsey, let alone that she was dating him! The whole thing is a complete surprise,” a source told Us Weekly. As far as we know, these two are still married. While many of us look at the marriage as a rebound, things might still work out for these two.

4. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

Length of Engagement: 1 Month

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr dated for about three years before they were engaged. The engagement only lasted a month. The couple married in a secret ceremony in 2010. After only three years of marriage, the couple called it quits in 2013. They have one son together, Flynn. Rumor has it that the marriage ended because of the “Lord of the Rings” actor’s drinking. The former Victoria’s Secret model got tired of it and left him.

Since the breakup, Kerr has been connected to a number of wealthy men while Bloom has been connected a to a few different models and Selena Gomez. There have been some rumors floating around Hollywood that Kerr hooked up with Justin Bieber while she was still with her actor husband. The controversial pop star had been performing at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show and she is said to be a fan of his. This might explain why Bloom tried to hit Bieber while in Ibiza last summer.

3. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green

Length of Engagement: 2 Weeks

Megan and Fox and Brian Austin Green were initially engaged back in 2006; however, they called it off in 2009, only to get back together a short time later. In 2010, they announced that they were engaged again and, two weeks after that, they were married in a small, private ceremony in Hawaii. These two are still married and have two young songs together, Noah and Bodhi.

According to Fox, she and her husband don’t have a sexual relationship anymore. “Brian doesn’t get any intimacy whatsoever,” she said. “My [2-year-old son Noah] sleeps in bed with us, so there’s really no way.” In spite of this, it looks like Green wants to have more children! “He says he wants another one. I’m not against it,” she said. “I’m not opposed to it.” Considering that the child will probably end up sleeping in their bed, we think that having another one might not be a great idea.

2. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden

Length of Engagement: 2 Weeks

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden recently walked down the aisle. They had been only been dating for about eight months before they were engaged and the engagement only lasted two weeks. They were set up by Nicole Richie, who is married to the rocker’s brother, Joel. Cameron allegedly announced at her wedding that she was glad that she never settled before meeting Benji and that she considers him to be her “Mr. Right.” Let’s hope she’s right because she dated a lot of duds before settling down with her current beau.

Before dating the Good Charlotte rocker, she was connected to a Matt Dillon, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez. Benji had his fair share of celebrity relationships as well. He dated Sophia Monk, Paris Hilton and Holly Madison. According to friends, Cameron and Benji seem pretty happy together. Who knows what could happen next, but kids seem like a viable option.

1. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Length of Engagement: 2 Weeks

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom only dated for about a month before he popped the question. Two weeks later, they were man and wife. For a couple of years there, these two seemed like the perfect couple. None of us had ever seen the reality star that happy. Before marrying the basketball pro, she had been involved in a number of relationships; however, the guys ended up being total scumbags.

It turns out that Odom wasn’t any different. He ended up cheating on her with multiple women, got involved with drugs and ended up ruining his basketball career. Although Khloe has filed for divorce, it doesn’t look like it will go through because he has refused to sign the papers and no one can find him. He is literally MIA. Some say that he isn’t over his estranged wife; however, it seems obvious that, after everything he has put her through, she is ready to move on.
