There are those couples that end in a blaze of glorious dishonor, like when Tiger got busted cheating. Surprisingly, many women prefer it to end salaciously, just so she’s angry enough to never see the jerk again. But some relationships simply run their course, flicker out like a candle at the end of its wick. These couples don’t break up over night. It’s a long drawn out process in play for roughly half the lifespan of the entire relationship. That means if you split with your boyfriend after a years time, the two of you were breaking up about six months.

Whether or not you decide to get married before your couple’s flame expires doesn’t change the fact that all good things come to an end. It comes as no surprise that we have celebrities to look to for prime examples of all that can go horribly wrong because of marriage.

As if they didn’t know their love flame was about to expire, these infamous couples courtship lasted longer than their marriage.

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries

You have to think that a marriage that lasts just 72 days must be attached to a longer courtship. Kim and Kris dated six months before getting married. That means they were breaking up for about four months and you can watch it all go down on the Kardashian’s E! show.

Mario Lopez and Ali Landry

How Ali managed to remain oblivious to the fact that Mario was a cheating liar the entire six years they dated it is beyond me. It seems getting married pulled the veil from her eyes. Get it? Their marriage was annulled in less than three weeks.

Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley

Nick and Lisa Marie dated over two years prior to making a big splash in the pool of matrimony. Hawaii-style. They were finally able to end their on again, off again relationship with a divorce just over three months after marrying.

The Dream and Christina Milian

These two only dated for 7 months before getting hitched, then promptly split three months later, after The Dream’s cheating ways were exposed for all the world to see.

LisaRaye McCoy and Michael Misick

Before their dramatic divorce in 2008, the former Chief Minister of Turks and Caicos spent three years wooing the actress leading up to their marriage in 2006.
