Do you know about the shortest marriage ever? It lasted only three minutes. A couple in Kuwait got divorced three minutes after they got married. They had not even left the courthouse where they exchanged the vows when the bride tripped over and fell. The groom instead of helping her called her stupid, and so, the woman marched back to the judge who had just married them and demanded a divorce. That’s one of the fastest divorce case ever too! They were not the only ones. There are several other couples for whom the honeymoon was almost over before it began.
