Marriages they say are made in heaven, but…broken on earth and the shortest ones are celebrity marriages. Who else on the top of the separation list than our own celebrities, most of whom have lost all the sense of moral responsibility their fame binds them with. Given the current divorce rates in many countries, the latter part of the saying is becoming a reality. More and more people are getting married, without much sense of long-standing commitment, and then a startling number of them are choosing to separate and in the process ruining the sanctity and purity of a the most pure form of commitment between two human beings. Here is taking a look at the 10 shortest celebrity marriages of all times. We go from the longest to the shortest time these couples were “married”. And don’t be surprised by what you read!
10. Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray (Five months):
Both starred in One Tree Hill and dated each other for two years before getting married in April 2005. Their marriage lasted just five months. Reasons for separation were not another woman or man, but she filed divorce papers annulling her marriage citing fraud. But this is the longest in the list of shortest celebrity marriages.

9. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito (Four Months):
We all know about Cooper after ‘Hangover’ and ‘Limitless’. But not many of us have heard about Jennifer (I still know what you did last summer). They were married in December, 2006 and later filed for divorce in April. Cooper was quiet about the entire affair, but Esposito cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the divorce. She was seeking spousal support and requested that the court deny any financial support for Cooper. She also asked that Cooper pay her legal fees.

8. Nicky Hilton and Todd Meister (Three months):
She was 21, he was 33 and they married on a whim at the Las Vegas Wedding Chapel in 2004. Three months later trying to make an on-the-spur of the moment marriage work amidst managing business from different places, they called it off rather amicably. They still remain good friends.

7. Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas (Six weeks):
He was 31and she was 19. He was bartender turned bar owner. They got married after dating for six weeks and well got divorced too after six weeks later. Perhaps Drew Barrymore’s lifestyle was too much for Jeremy to handle. Anyways he will be remembered for his marriage to a Barrymore howsoever short it may be of duration.

6. Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds (15 days):
He married the film producer in January 2008 in a romantic marriage ceremony on an island off Bora Bora. On January 16, the couple released a statement saying, “After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” and called the Bora Bora wedding a “symbolic union”. We guess that was the most polite divorce ever.

Rodman married the Baywatch beauty in 1998. It was an early morning Las Vegas wedding and some even question the legitimacy of their marriage as he was highly intoxicated. But they said their love was enough, which surprisingly came to an end 9 days later, when they filed for an annulment.

1. Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkovic (7 minutes):
People joke about their marriage saying that they were divorced so quickly that they did not even get a photograph clicked together. The 7 minute marriage is doing the rounds of many websites, but we are not so sure of that duration, but all we can say for sure is that the annulment was filed within a day. Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkkovic: Congrats, you are the winner of the shortest celebrity marriages list.
