The shortest marriages in Hollywood

When it comes to drama, scandals, successful PR and love, Hollywood has it all: from high school sweethearts and unbelievable age difference to more than half a dozen divorces (such an example is Elizabeth Taylor, in case you are wondering).

Today, we are talking about the shortest marriages history has known in the past decades. It turns out that some people did not live happily ever after.

Who: Drew Barrymore & Jeremy Thomas
Duration: 39 days
The two married in 1994. They knew each other for 6 weeks before they made it official.
What we learned from that story? Sometimes 6 weeks is not enough!


Who: Axl Rose & Erin Everly
Duration: 26 days
You’ve probably seen Erin in Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O Mine” video.
What we learned from that story? Being a sweet child is not enough.

Who: Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds
Duration: 14 days
Even though there was no legal ceremony, the couple exchanged wedding vows in Bora-Bora in 2008.
What we learned from that story? Sometimes Doctor Do-little becomes Doctor Marry-little.


Who: Cher & Greg Allman
Duration: 9 days
They married in Vegas in 1975, but Cher had to file for divorce 9 days later quoting Allman’s substance abuse as a reason for the separation.
What we learned from that story? You don’t use substances if you want to be married to Cher, as simple as that.


Who: Nicolas Cage & Erika Kioke
Duration: 4 days
That was actually the relationship which inspired this material, as the ceremony happened a week ago.
What we learned from that story? Fourth time is not a charm, especially when it comes to marriages.


Who: Britney Spears & Jason Alexander
Duration: 55 hours
In case you thought 4 weeks in a short period of time to be married to a certain someone, try 55 hours. Britney and her childhood friend tied the knot in 2004, but she “lacked understanding of her actions”, as the official papers say.
What we learned from that story? Oops!.. she did it again – she got married later that same year.
