A History of the Shortest Celebrity Marriages

Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker

Length Of Marriage: 6 hours

Although the marriage is said to have lasted just a few hours—from ceremony to reception's end, with Acker then locking Valentino out of the honeymoon suite—in truth, it continued for months afterward, at least in Rudy's opinion. He sent her letters asking for forgiveness for whatever he'd done, and expressing the desire to live as man and wife. Eventually, he did get the message and their separtion was followed by a divorce. Why would Acker not want to be the wife of Valentino, who was about to become the most dashing film star in all of Hollywood? They say it's because she was a lesbian involved in a girl-girl-girl love triangle, and the wedding was a ruse she used to get out. Oh, that'll do it.
