Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are officially married. As the news sinks in, our brains are aflutter with questions. What did the bride wear? What was the ceremony like? Who was on the guest list? These are the details fans are dying to consume. But while the world pores over the minutia of the wedding ceremony, the couple's new union is sure to set off a wave of predictable pop culture behavior. But for now, here are some things over which we'll immediately ruminate.
When are the babies coming?
The trend of celebrities having babies before marriage, has thrown fans off several times. Natalie Portman waited to marry Benjamin Millepied until after baby Aleph made his arrival. Little David Otunga, Jr. may be in kindergarten by the time his mother Jennifer Hudson and fiance David "Punk" Otunga make it down the aisle. Considering Hollywood's creative parenting plans, every time the wind blows a bit of air underneath Jessica Biel's blouse, we'll assume she's hiding a baby bump.
Will this reunion stick?Although we're thrilled about Justin and Jessica's nuptials, it's only natural for some to focus on the fact that they called it quits once in 2011. Did Justin have cold feet? Was Jessica pressuring him? The pair's handlers did an excellent job of maintaining their privacy during the break-up. As such, we never really knew the exact cause of the split. Some surmised that he'd assumed a "Friends with Benefits" status with his co-star Mila Kunis. But this theory was quickly shot down. In any event, according to "critics," presumably anything that the pair failed to resolve in 2011 will come up again in the future.
Did Justin make the best choice?
Jessica Biel turned out to be the lucky lady to snag one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. Although he's technically been off the market since 2007, it's only natural that we look closer at Justin's exes. Why didn't they make the cut? Some have forgotten that he and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie were reportedly an item when he was just a teen. And we can hardly forget his well-publicized romance with actress Cameron Diaz. Spending nearly four years together, many assumed the leggy blonde would be walking down the aisle with Timberlake. Years after their split, some mused that Diaz (to whom he's still close) might even be a threat to the couple's happiness. Nonetheless, this theory failed to hold water.
What about Britney?
There is no way you can mention JT's name without a fleeting thought of pop princess Britney Spears. Though these two went their separate ways years ago, they will forever be linked according to their Mickey Mouse romance. Some might describe what they had as puppy love that made its way onto the grown-ups' red carpet. By the time the world had gotten used to their being together, they were already headed for rockier times. It is for this reason that Justin's relationship with Britney perhaps requires its own category altogether.
We can't help but wonder how their careers might have panned out if their sweetheart status had taken them to the altar. As such, we will inadvertently hone in on whatever Spears has going on. With conservatorship court battles currently in full swing, and her own impending nuptials to Jason Trawick on the line, she's probably got more on her mind than her ex's wedding.
