Shockingly short celebrity marriages

Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage was hardly the shortest in Hollywood. Not even close ...

Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray

"One Tree Hill" fans were thrilled when the adorable co-stars started a real life romance, but that all crashed and burned just five months after their seaside Santa Monica wedding in 2005. 

"This is a difficult and unfortunate situation," Sophia said in a statement after the divorce was filed. "I am glad this is being resolved sooner rather than later."

The worst part? The two had to continue working together after the split. Chad proposed to Kenzie Dalton, an extra on their TV series, the next year, and the two remained engaged for seven years until announcing a split in September 2013.
