    Believe it or not, The Big Bang Theory actress and tennis pro didn't have the shortest celebrity engagement—you may have thought so, just because Cuoco-Sweeting loved to publicly speak about it. The couple wed on New Year's Eve in 2013, just three months after getting engaged (and knowing each other for three months prior to that!). Unfortunately, they divorced after less than two years of marriage.

  2. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth: 3 Months
