Whirlwind Romances: Celebrities Who Get Hitched Quick

How many times have we heard celebs say "sometimes you just know?" And then, a few months later, they "just know" they need a divorce.

But getting hitched fast works for a handful of people. For the rest of us, it just seems terrifying to commit to a lifetime with someone after only knowing them for a few months—or less. Here are some celebs who got married or engaged after only knowing each other for a short period of time.

Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson: Jessica Simpson announced her engagement to the former NFL player after the two had only been dating for six months. I guess Eric saw all he needed to from reruns of Newlyweds. "He definitely makes me happy and makes me very comfortable being who I am," Simpson said.

Katy Perry & Russell Brand: Russell Brand somehow coerced Katy Perry into marriage after dating for only a few months. It's an odd couple indeed, because the only thing these two have in common is a haircut.

Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom: Khloe famously married NBA star Lamar Odom after only knowing him a month. But the two are going on strong, so it can work. They even put out a fragrance together—if that doesn't yell 'commitment', I don't know what does. Maybe a reality show. They've got that covered, too.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon: Mariah and Nick started dating in March 2008 and married in May 2008. Before we could even believe they were dating, they got married. And recently, they sealed the commitment with twins, and both seem happier than ever.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes: The two only dated for two months before they got engaged. I hate to see what the couch looked like when Katie said yes.

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries: His name begins with a K, it was obviously meant to be. Kim started dating Kris in December before agreeing to marry him in May. That might seem short, but compared to her sister, it's basically a lifetime.

Kate Hudson & Matt Bellamy: Kate was pregnant with Matt's baby after dating him for only a few months. Only a few months after announcing her pregnancy, Kate announced her engagement. Why not?
