When news broke of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's lightning-fast engagement (after only two months of dating), the Internet groaned with cynicism. After all, the news came just weeks after Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson announced their whirlwind engagement after only dating for a few weeks. Ariana even recently defended her relationship (and Justin's) after fans criticized the speed of her engagement.
“You do realize we are human beings who love and have lives… right?" she tweeted in a now-deleted response. "Love is lit. S--t happens. I hope to god it happens to you too. U deserve it."
And, sure, we understand love can be immediate and quick, but how successful are marriages with quick engagements? Judging by previous celebrity couples who rushed to the altar, the average length of these marriages is only 2.5 years. Although we wish the best for Hailey and Justin, the stats don't lie.
