Kim Kardashian made the ill-fated decision to wed at the young age of 19! The sex tape siren tied the knot in Las Vegas with producer Damon Thomas, who was 10 years her senior. The couple divorced four years later, and the reality star claimed that he had been abusive toward her.
New bride Drew Barrymore was only 19 years old when she headed to the altar for the first time with bartender Jeremy Thomas — resulting in a one-month marriage! The child star had been engaged twice before, but called off the romances before trading vows.
Also married at 19 was country singer LeAnn Rimes, who tied the knot to backup dancer Dean Sheremet. Though the couple remained married for seven years, their relationship ended dramatically when Rimes cheated on him with her current husband Eddie Cibrian.
