When Becks met Victoria, she was a part of sensation, The Spice Girls, who became extremely famous after the release of their hit single "Wannabe" in 1996. David claims that when he saw a Spice Girls video in 1996, before even meeting the Posh Spice in real life, he said to his teammate Gary Neville:

That one there, that's the girl I'm going to marry.

And so he did. They married on July 4, 1999, in Ireland after welcoming their first son Brooklyn Beckham on March 4, 1999. Neville was David’s best man.

But in 2003 began the unfortunate year for the Beckham family.

That September, the soccer player was spotted with his assistant, Rebecca Loos, at a nightclub in Madrid. After that, David denied that his marriage was in trouble. The News of the World, which no longer exists now, ran a detailed story about David and Loos’s sexual encounters, saying that Victoria warned Rebecca to back off.

Adding to the couple’s problems, in 2005 another News of the World story appeared, claiming that the soccer player had an affair with a former nanny, Abbie Gibson, who mentioned that their marriage was a sham. The Beckhams' sued Gibson, who had been their employee since 2003.

The “power couple” continued to work on their marriage and in 2005 they welcomed their third son, Cruz Beckham.

Yet another change came to their lives. David was dropped by the national team after their World Cup quarterfinal loss in 2006, and he wasn’t making any success with Real Madrid. So the family moved to the United States where Beckham got a five-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

David retired in 2013 and now he’s working on bringing a MLS franchise to Miami, as well as launching his own line of grooming products called House 99,  inspired by the most eventful year in his live, 1999, when he married Victoria, had his first child and won the treble.

Victoria Beckham has opened up about her marriage to the former football player, sharing the secret of their long-lasting marriage, which is that they “have a lot of fun together”.

If I really was as miserable as I look in some of those paparazzi pictures, my children wouldn’t be as happy as they are. And I certainly wouldn’t be married anymore.

Last year, David addressed on BBC Radio 4 to skeptics who think his marriage is just business:

Do we stay together because it is a brand? Of course not. We stay together because we love each other and because we have four amazing children.

We hope that their relationship will only get stronger with years to come.
