Let’s find out!
218 DAYS - JENNIFER LOPEZ AND CRIS JUDD
While Jennifer Lopez is currently waiting to get married to Alex Rodriguez, she already walked down the aisle several times. She was once married to Cris Judd, a former backup dancer of the singer.

312 DAYS - ELISABETH MOSS AND FRED ARMISEN
Way before Elisabeth Moss became a huge star thanks to Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, she was married to Fred Armisen, famous for his time on ‘Saturday Night Live’.

9 DAYS - CHER AND GREGG ALLMAN
Clearly, getting married in Las Vegas is not the best way to start a long-lasting marriage.
