Kevin Jonas, You May Want to Read This
Kevin Jonas, the 22-year-old tweener heart throb who, along with his two brothers, fronts a successful Disney brand band -- recently announced plans to marry 21-year-old girlfriend Danielle Deleasa. Though this news may help rumor mongers hoping to ID a gay Jonas brother and we're all for letting love rule, Kevin may want to put the brakes on party planning and consider how some other young matrimonially-inclined celebs fared. And it isn't a good story.
Married at 23
A two-year marriage to skeevy back-up dancer Kevin Federline left Spears with two kids, unhinged and bald. Spears, now 27, has since recovered, and is in the midst of a comeback. She was recently rumored to be contemplating another marriage. (Spears also had a previous one-day marriage to high school pal Jason Alexander annulled.)
Married at 21
Jolie's first marriage to British actor Johnny Lee Miller lasted four years. Jolie says the two are still friends and blames immaturity for their breakup: "It comes down to timing. I think he's the greatest husband a girl could ask for. I'll always love him, we were simply too young." Jolie next married Billy Bob Thornton before moving on to Brad Pitt. Jolie and Pitt say they won't marry until same-sex marriage is legalized in the U.S.
Married at 19
The prodigal country singer married dancer Dean Sheremet in 2002 and all seemed well until, uh oh, Rimes was captured on video kissing also-married Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian. Rimes says she's since patched things up with Sheremet.
Married at 19
Barrymore's first marriage -- to Welsh barman Jeremy Thomas -- lasted all of 19 days. She later married comedian Tom Green in 2001, but less than a year later Green filed divorce papers citing "irreconcilable differences." Barrymore has most recently been linked to actor Justin Long.
Married at 18
Culkin married fellow teen actress Rachel Miner in 1998, but the two separated only two years later. Culkin has been dating "That '70s Show's" Mila Kunis since 2002 and the couple has been the object of engagement rumors.
