At first glance, it might seem as if reality starlet Kim Kardashian is rushing to the altar a little too fast. After all, she only met soon-to-be-husband Kris Humphries around late last fall and is marrying himthis weekend. But actually, the brief amount of time between her first date and that walk down the aisle seems to run in the family. Check out this history of the Kardashian women's whirlwind romances-turned-marriages and you'll see what we mean ...
Kris Houghton & Robert Kardashian
The now millionaire matriarch reportedly met her first husband, attorney Robert Kardashian, while working as a flight attendant in 1978 and married him the same year, when she was just 22 and he was 34. (Can you picture Kris pushing that drink cart and collecting passenger's garbage? We can't either.) After more than a decade of marriage, the two split, but four now-famous offspring came out of the union.
Kris Kardashian & Bruce Jenner
Kris didn't stay unhitched for long, of course. In 1990,the single mom of four was set up on a blind date with a divorced dad -- former Olympian Bruce Jenner -- who also happened to have the same number of kids at home. The two blended their families into a modern-day "Brady Bunch" five months later and went on to have two more children of their own, Kylie and Kendall, bringing their new brood up to an even 10. Twenty years later, the happy power couple's marriage is still going strong and the duo recently renewed their vows.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom
Kim and Kourtney's younger sister takes the (multi-tier) cake for the shortest whirlwind courtship of the clan. After Khloe starteddating Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom in August 2009, at age 25, her family was surprised when the new couple got engaged the following month. But theirjaws really dropped when the two announced their wedding would take place just a week later, since they wanted to seal the deal before Lamar headed off for pre-season training. (Even by Kardashian standards, thatwas fast.) "I actually found out about it six days before it happened. Needless to say, we were shocked," Khloe's step dad Bruce Jenner admittedon Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show shortly after the nuptials. Khloe it turns out, was sure from the start. "I fell head over heels for Lamar by our second date," she recently told Shape magazine."I knew he was the person I wanted to marry. I've never been so sure of something in my life." Nearly two years in, Khloe and Lamar look to still be in love ... despite the fact they have their own reality show.
Kim Kardashian & Damon Thomas
Though Kim has kept mostly mum about her first marriage, she indeed tied the knot with music producer Damon Thomas -- who was 10 years her senior -- in a quickie Las Vegas wedding when she was just 19! The couple divorced after four years, and according to court documents, Kim accused her ex of abuse -- claims he denies. "I got married because I clearly was young and it wasn't the best choice," she told Bossip.com in 2007. "I definitely learned a lot from it and I don't have regrets ever."
Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
Now 30, Kim is ready for marriage number two ... and is following in little sister Khloe's footsteps in bringing a pro basketballer into the family. After just six months of dating, New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries popped the question -— with a whopping $2-million, 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring. Kim and Kris will have known each other a whole nine months when they become husband and wife on August 20. "I didn't expect this at all," Kim told People shortly after their big announcement. Given her family's history, they probably did...
