A whirlwind relationship is all about the excitement of a new romance and dreams of happily ever after. Being in love is the best feeling in the world, but sadly life isn’t a fairytale.
These celebrity couples were on the fast track to love, rushing into a relationship and lifelong commitment before really getting to know one another. Let’s check out some celebrity whirlwind relationships!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
Many people were shocked to hear that Cameron Diaz tied the knot on Monday night to Benji Madden after seven months of dating.
The couple became engaged in December, before getting married weeks later.
The 42-year-old actress, who wed for the first time, stated, “I waited because I didn’t want to settle. Now I got the best man ever. My special man. He’s mine.”
We really hope these two can stand the test of time!

As a hopeless romantic, we love to see happy endings and couples that are still in love after many years together. It’s important to remember there is a huge difference between passion and love.
A couple, whether celebrity or normal folks, should give the relationship some time to really know one another before jumping into marriage.
Some of those cute little habits and quirks your partner has now can become very annoying over the years. It’s important to spend enough time with someone to make certain the relationship can survive after that emotional rush turns into something deeper and stronger.
