A Polish couple living in Hannover, Germany hold the world record after a small dispute: the husband tried to cut his wife’s hair with a kitchen knife! After she said no but he kept going, the couple started yelling at each other until police had to get involved.
The couple was separated and the man was stuck with a restraining order against his former wife! Another solid contender for shortest marriage goes to Britney Spears with her friend, Jason Alexander (not George from Seinfeld). The couple was married for a total of 50 hours before Spears’ lawyers thought it would be best to divorce them due to her not understanding her actions!
