Length of marriage: 72 days
A mere 72 days after their much hyped and überpricey nuptials, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her NBA-player husband Kris Humphries. The couple, who dated for six months prior to getting engaged, chronicled their rocky courtship on the E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians and their dramatic wedding in a two-day special, Kim's Fairytale Wedding. The wedding may have been a fairy tale, but it appears the marriage was not. Competing statements issued after the announcement seem to speak to just how far out of touch the two have been. In Kardashian's statement, she said, "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best." While Humphries had this to say: "I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
