The pair had just exchanged vows and were on their way out of the courthouse when the bride tripped. The groom's insulting response angered the bride.
A couple reportedly made history in Kuwait with the shortest duration of being married by getting a divorce just three minutes after tying the knot. Per local media outlets, the pair had just exchanged vows and were on their way out of the courthouse, when the bride tripped. Her new husband responded to this situation by calling her "stupid" in front of her guests. Unsurprisingly, this angered the woman, who felt ridiculed in the presence of everyone. So, she made her way back to the judge and urged him to dissolve the marriage, reports Daily Mail. The judge agreed to grant her wish and gave the couple a divorce, according to Q8 News.
When the news reached social media, people were quick to deduce that their relationship may have already been a tense one. Perhaps the last straw was the moment her husband decided to take an unexpected dig at her. People applauded the bride's decisiveness and her courage for fearlessly doing what was best for her. If she was my daughter or sister I would certainly encourage her to do so, wrote SherifRAyad. You go girl, smart woman! shared sbgordon2019. Others expressed that a marriage with no respect was a failed one right from the beginning and that leaving the person was justified if they behaved the way this groom did right at the beginning of their marriage.

However, there were some who thought that the woman's reaction was unnecessarily excessive and described the whole incident as "stupid." Now, celebrities like Kim Kardashian West are no stranger to short marriages. Back in May 2011, she said yes to NBA player Kris Humphries when he got down on one knee and popped the big question. Despite the proposal being a romantic one, their marriage lasted only 72 days. According to Insider, many people believed it was a well-planned publicity stunt but Kim later clarified in an official blog post, "First and foremost, I married for love. I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show."
Even Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon got married and divorced two times. Anderson and Salomon were in Vegas when they first tied the knot in October 2007. They were quick to file a divorce later that year on December 14. "Public divorces can be harsh and cruel — we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused — we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on," they said of their marriage that only lasted 60 days. "There are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well."
The most popular short marriage was that of Britney Spears, who married her childhood friend Jason Alexander for 55 hours. In 2004, the couple got married and later in an interview that aired on E! she said, "It was me being silly, being rebellious, and not really taking the responsibility of what I was doing." But Alexander had a very contrasting version of the story. During an interview with ABC's 20/20 show, he revealed the decision to end the marriage was not made by him. When Spears's management team found out found the marriage, "They didn’t want to hear anything … and [Spears] came back, and it ended. That was pretty wild," he said, according to Daily Mail.

Furthermore, it was claimed that Spears "lacked understanding of her actions, to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage" however, Alexander calls that "bullshit. That was probably the hardest part about it. I had obviously got my feelings involved. Nice guys finish last. Look out for yourself. If you are going to really get involved into a relationship with a celebrity and you are just an average Joe, make sure you are thinking business!" Back in 2004, Alexander insisted that the decision to get married was made when both were sober, reports PEOPLE. "We were just chilling in the room, about 3:30, and we had so much fun, just looking out at the city and the lights, and we were, 'We’re in Las Vegas, let’s do something. Let’s go get married,'" he told Inside Edition. "No one gets married as a joke, that would be stupid," added Alexander’s best friend while speaking to The Post.
