With all the failed relationships in the world of celebrities, it’s hard to believe that some consider tying the knot at all, let alone thinking about it in their late teens/early twenties (a la Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards. Nevertheless, whether the stars were in it for the long haul or not, they all provided their shares of entertainment for the public at, sometimes, the expense of their own feelings. Here’s 16 celebrities who at least attempted to put a ring on it when they were young:
In summer 2013, when the Teen Wolf star was still 21, he popped the question to longtime girlfriend Seana Gorlick. They've been together for 10 years! Best of luck to 'em.

Rumor has it that, at the tender age of 21, the Glee guy's engaged to fellow New Directions member Melissa Benoist (25)!

Last year, the I Am Number Four stud (who was 21 at the time) was reportedly engaged to none other than Elvis Presley's granddaughter, Riley Keough. However, they have since called off the nuptials. Oh well.
The world was shocked to learn last year that Liam Hemsworth had popped the question to his then-love, Miley, who was only 19. But we all know how that turned out.
In 2012, new-to-the-scene singer Cher Lloyd was 18 when she announced her engagement to hairdresser Craig Monk. And everything seems to have gone to plan as the two just took the plunge and got married!
Bonnie Wright & Jamie Campbell Bower
It was a YA book lover's dream — we learned in 2011 that Harry Potter's Ginny Weasley (20) and Twilight's Caius were to wed. However, by the time Jamie started filming The Mortal Instruments, things were already kaput.
The moment we all learned that Lizzie McGuire was all grown up — when she announced her engagement to Mike Comrie in 2010 when she was 22.
Prior to her current engagement to Big Time Rush's Carlos Pena, the Spy Kid actress was engaged — and married! — to Sean Covel. She was 21.
Things seem to be going well for the Jonases, who announced their engagement back in 2009 when he was 21. They even have a baby on the way!
Before she hooked up with Brody Jenner and, you know, the guy from Nickelback, the pop-rock singer was all about Sum 41's Deryck Whibley. In 2005, when she was 20, they got engaged, and soon married. At least for a little while.
In 2002, just a year before the gem that was MTV's Newlyweds, Jess was a 22-year-old woman engaged to Nick Lachey.
In case you didn't know, Kim was married even before Kris Humphries! In 2000, at the age of 20, she pretty much skipped the engagement stage and eloped with some guy named Damon Thomas.
You may know her from getting sassy with Lea Michele on Glee, but years ago, back in 2000, she was a big deal 21-year-old with a big deal fiance-turned-husband, rocker Chris Robinson.
The Legally Blonde actress and Ryan Phillippe met on Reese's 21st birthday in 1997, and tied the knot (slash had a baby) not too long after. It's a real shame this didn't work out.
Long before the days of Modern Family — in 1991 to be more accurate — the beauty married her high school sweetheart at the ripe age of 18. 18! They divorced two years later.
