Actress Jessica Biel and pop star Justin Timberlake have been married for ten years and together for almost 16, and they’re still going strong. The pair have had their ups and downs, including a brief breakup and even briefer photo scandal.

January 2007: Snowboarding and Flirting
Shortly after his breakup with Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are seen snowboarding together with a group of friends in Park City, Utah, and some might say even flirting. Biel had just broken up with baseball star Derek Jeter. A source told People that Timberlake was only “trying to have a good time.” They added, “He is in no way looking to be in a relationship. He’s single and he’s happy.”

September 2009: Rumors of a Breakup
Rumors start circulating that the couple have broken up, but a source said, “They’re together…They’re not breaking up.

They’ve been spending more time apart—more time with each of their friends, and they’ve been reevaluating [their relationship].”
March 2011: The Breakup
A few years later, things go from assessing to ending.

The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”

That November, Biel hinted in an interview with ELLE magazine that they may have reconciled after being asked about her dating life. “A girl doesn’t kiss and tell,” she said.
