Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom, 1 month: Kardashian and Odom met at a party in August 2009, got engaged a few weeks later, and married on September 27 — one month to the day after they first laid eyes on each other. In June 2017, during an interview on The Wendy Williams Show, the former Los Angeles Lakers player opened up about meeting Kardashian at a party, saying, "I didn't even know who she was when I met her. I went up and spoke to her, introduced myself. I fell in love. She's a beautiful person, inside and out." They were married for four years before Kardashian filed for divorce on December 13, 2013.

The couple welcomed two sons while they were together, but divorced in July 2007. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting, 3 months: The Big Bang Theory star and the tennis pro got engaged in September 2013 after dating for just three months.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand, 4 months: The singer and the comedian announced their engagement in January 2010, just a few months after sparks flew at the 2009 MTV VMAs. They married in a traditional Hindu ceremony in October 2010 but split 14 months later. "It's a bit difficult to tell what's going on in such a situation," Brand said of their short-lived marriage in an interview on The Wendy Williams Show in 2017. Still, despite the fact that it didn't work out, he said their relationship was "a very, very wonderful time." (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford, 5 months: The Great Gatsby star and the Mumford & Sons singer were childhood pen pals — how cute is that? — who reconnected as adults in 2011, when Mulligan accompanied her friend Jake Gyllenhaal to a secret show Mumford was playing in Nashville. Five months after they started dating, they got engaged. They are now the parents of two kids. (Photo via Ian West/WPA Pool/Getty Images)
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney, 6 months: After his divorce from Talia Balsam, Clooney swore he would never marry again. But his feelings changed when he met human rights lawyer Alamuddin in September 2013. Their official first date was that October, and six months later, the actor popped the question — though the proposal didn't go as smoothly as he hoped it would. "I got down on my knee and said, 'I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without you.' And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like, 'Oh my God,'" he recalled to Ellen DeGeneres. "And we now know, because there was a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it was like 25 minutes. Finally, I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer's yes, but I need an answer 'cause I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.' And she said, 'Oh, yes,' and it worked out really well." The two married later that year and in June 2017 became parents to twins Ella and Alexander. (Photo via Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images)
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, 6 months: On Christmas Day 2014, just six months after they started dating, the Magic Mike actor proposed to the Modern Family star while they were on vacation in Hawaii. "We realized very early on that we each had to put the other person's happiness and well-being ahead of our own," Manganiello told HOLA! USA. "Once you realize that kind of trust has manifested, you hang on for dear life. Or in my case, you go and buy a ring." (Photo via Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images)
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger, 6 months: The two Canadian musicians met in February 2012 while co-writing a song for the "I'm With You" singer's fifth album. Six months later, on August 21, Lavigne's rep confirmed that they were engaged. Their marriage lasted two years, but Lavigne announced their separation in September 2015, saying in a statement, "Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other." (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, 6 months: The KUWTK star made her first public appearance with Humphries in November 2010, just days after she was spotted at one of the NBA player's games. Six months later, in May 2011, they confirmed their engagement. Their wedding in August of that year was filmed for her family's reality show, but 72 days after saying "I do," Kardashian filed for divorce. She later revealed that she'd had doubts before walking down the aisle. "The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off-camera, and was like, 'This isn't it for you. Why don't you go away and I'll handle it?'" she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. (Photo via Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images)
