8 Celeb Couples Whose Marriages Lasted Less Than a Year

Published on 03/06/2015

Celebrities are notorious for having some of the shortest marriages around – we’re more surprised when a marriage lasts than when it doesn’t! Do you know all of these celebrity marriages on our list? They all lasted under a year!

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

Duration: 55 hours

The infamous 55 hour marriage between Britney Spears and Jason Alexander easily wins the shortest marriage on our list! The two were married in Las Vegas on January 3, 2004 and had the marriage annulled on January 5, 2004. The two childhood friends were married on a whim at 5:30am. Was Britney wearing white? Yes, but in the form of a trucker hat… She was also wearing jeans! Can’t say that would be our first choice for wedding couture. Britney’s record label released a statement the next day saying: “On January 3, Britney Spears and a friend took a joke too far by getting married. Ms. Spears and Mr. Alexander have filed for an annulment which will become official on Monday, January 5.” These crazy kids were only 22 at the time, so maybe they can kinda get away with it!
