Sinead O'Connor announced earlier this week that she is ending her marriage to Barry Herridge after only 18 days of marriage.

The pair tied the knot in Las Vegas on December 8th, O'Connor's 45th birthday, and less than three weeks later, the party is over. She took to her website to let the world know that she and Herridge would be going their separate ways.

Why such a short time spent in wedded bliss? O'Connor gives some explanation in the letter she posted on her website, which includes friends and family of her soon-to-be ex-husband not agreeing with the lifestyle she leads.

Regardless of the reason, O'Connor joins a list of elite celebrities who've managed to split before their one month anniversary.

Ali Landry and Mario Lopez made it as long as O'Connor and Herridge staying married a whopping 18 days, while Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman only made it nine days as husband and wife.

There is certainly no shortage of quick celebrity weddings, but less than three weeks is really something. We've compiled a list of things that lasted longer than 18 days, check out the list below.

-- Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage lasted 72 days, a whopping 54 more days that O'Connor and Herridge.
-- Adele spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for her album "21" -- that's 91 days.
-- The Islamic holiday of Ramadan: The Islamic month of fasting lasts 29 or 30 days.
-- ABC's "Charlie's Angels" reboot: The Show only aired four episodes, lasting 4 weeks, or 28 days.
-- Conrad Murray's Trial: The trial that convicted Michael Jackson's personal physician lasted 33 days.
-- Lindsay Lohan spent 23 days in an inpatient rehabilitation center following the 14 days she spent in jail in the summer of 2010.
-- The Chilean Miners were rescued after 69 days being trapped underground.
-- Justin Bieber took a paternity test to prove he was not the father of Marriah Yeater's son on November 18th, 19 days after the media got wind of the claim.
-- Demi Moore took nearly two months to divorce Ashton Kutcher after the cheating scandal emerged.
-- It takes roughly 66 days to make something a habit.
