Not that you need to think about this yet when you’re in high school or whatever, but what’s the perfect amount of time to be engaged to your fiancé? A year or so, right? Sure. But since Hollywood is like cat years or something, everything seems to move a lot faster in celebrity land. But we bet we’re not the only ones who think these 5 celeb couples (some now kaput) should’ve waited a bit longer before getting hitched…
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
K & R’s romance was pretty much a whirlwind…meeting, getting engaged and getting married all within a little bit over a year. And then, 14 months later, came the separation announcement
. Ugh. If only they’d listened to us…
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds
If you find a guy as hot as Ryan who’s willing to marry you, you’d probably jump on the opportunity, too. But shouldn’t these two have waited a bit more than three months to get married? Cause, uh, now they’re kaput.
Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald
Nikki and her American Idol
boyfie met in March 2011, put a ring on it in June, and got married in October. Sure, they’re still going strong, but why the rush, exactly? Nikki’s only 23! Getting to know each other a little bit better probably wouldn’t have been the worst thing.
Leah Messer and Corey Simms
We get that these two lovebirds got engaged and married because they wanted their twin girls’ parents to be together and stuff. But when the Teen Mom
and dad divorced after just 6 months of holy matrimony, we can’t say we were shocked. Forget a long engagement. These two needed a longer marriage
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Um, need we even go into this one? The K’s engagement, which was from May to August of 2011, lasted longer than their 72-day marriage
that ended in October. And now there’s nothing but a 20.5 karat diamond ring to show for it. Darn.
Which of these couples do you think should’ve had a longer engagement? Anyone we forgot to mention? Tell us below!
