Quick to Wed – Celebrities Who Married Soon After Their First Date

Amal, George Clooney married 11 months

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

George Clooney is no longer the man of constant sorrow when it comes to his love life.  After numerous high-profile relationships, that always crumbled because of Clooney’s lack of commitment, he has finally tied the knot.  Clooney realized that he had quite the catch when he met Amal Alamuddin.  Amal is a Lebanese-British lawyer whose life and career achievements are very impressive.  Perhaps Clooney’s fear of losing such an amazing woman caused him to act quickly–he asked Amal to be his wife after only 5 months of dating, and they made it official a month before their 1 year anniversary.

Nicholas Cage and Alice Kim, married 6 months
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim
Nicolas Cage had two troubled marriages before settling down with waitress, Alice Kim.  He was with Patricia Arquette for six years and Lisa Marie Presley for 8 months (6 of which were just waiting for the divorce proceedings to finalize).  It’s surprising his marriage to Kim has lasted for 11 years, considering they only spent two months getting to know each other before getting engaged and 6 months total before they were married.  Cage is happy with his 20 years younger wife, and Alice Kim is happy getting to stay on her own island instead of serving long islands.

mariah carey, nick cannon, married 2 months
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
 
Diva singer, Mariah Carey gets want she wants, and she wanted actor Nick Cannon.  Mariah and Nick married only two months after meeting on the set of Mariah’s music video for her song “Bye, Bye”.  Why so quickly?  It may have had something to do with Mariah insisting no sex before marriage.  The pair have fraternal twins Monroe and Moroccan.  The name of the song Mariah was recording when she met Nick may have been foreshadowing, because in August 2014, Nick Cannon said bye bye to their relationship.

Khloe and Lamar, married, 1 month
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian
It’s hard to keep up with this whirlwind relationship—  reality star Khloe Kardashian and basketball star Lamar Odom married after only knowing each other for one month.  They met at a party being thrown for Odom’s teammate Metta World Peace (yes, that’s his legal name).  Their nuptials were aired on E!–quite elaborate for only a couple weeks of planning.  After years of hearing Odom’s lies while he was out with other women, Khloe finally filed for divorce in 2013.

Ryan and Naya, married quickly
Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey
Actor Ryan Dorsey was stuck in the “friend-zone” for four years before finally hooking up with Glee actress Naya Rivera.  The feelings must have been intense as they married only three months after their first date.  They are currently expecting their first child

zoe saldana, marco perego

Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego

Actress Zoe Saldana was sick of dating famous actors.  She is quoted as saying “been there, done that, got the T-shirt” when Allure magazine asked her about dating actors.  An Italian artist with sexy pirate looks is more her type.  Marco Perego is a professional soccer player, turned artist, who won Zoe’s love in just four months.  They were married secretly in June 2013.  She has received a lot more than a T-shirt out of this relationship, giving birth to twin sons with Marco in 2014.
