There's a faction among us who might say that people like Michael Sam would ruin the sanctity of marriage should gay marriage be made legal nationwide.

But those people obviously aren't looking at the frequent break-ups taking place in Hollywood. Stars who make it more than a year in a marriage are something of a novelty.

Five years? INCONCEIVABLE! 

Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for a whopping 55 hours; Kim Kardashian was married to Kris Humphries for 72 days before they split (their divorce, however, took 581 days to be finalized). 

The price tag on that fairytale happily-ever-three-months-from-now? Around $10 million dollars. (But her wedding to Kanye West? That's coming in at $30 million.)

INSANITY. And they're not alone. Far from it, in fact.

Take a look at the 13 shortest celebrity marriages ...

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Ashton and Demi Picture
  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

For once, the tabloids appear to have gotten it right: Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kris Humphries.

Multiple headlines have screamed over the past few weeks that the 72-day marriage was in trouble, and TMZ now reports that celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser has been hired to complete the legal paperwork.

Kardashian will cite "irreconcilable differences" as the basis for the split.

  • The Wedding of the Year!
  • Kim Kardashian Kollector's Issue

Kim and Kris were married on August 20, in a ceremony that reportedly netted them at least $15 million. There is a pre-nuptial agreement in place. The couple is also co-starring on season two of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, a clip from which shows them fighting.

So, is this all a part of the family's PR game? Ryan Seacrest has confirmed the news via Twitter - Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins - but he produces her shows for E!.

What is your reaction to the news?
