Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been making headlines recently with claims that their marriage is on the rocks and that Timberlake may be cheating. The couple maintains that their marriage is just fine, even though Timberlake's "friendship" with costar Alisha Wainwright definitely got under Biel's skin.

And this isn't the first time the couple's relationship has been seriously strained. Timberlake and Biel separated in 2011 but got back together that same year. Since their separation, rumors have periodically circulated about their marital difficulties.

Though the couple is working through their marriage troubles after the scandal, there's still a lot more work to be done. Timberlake and Biel have reportedly started going to couple's therapy to discuss the cheating scandal and other underlying issues in their marriage.

Biel and Timberlake welcomed their son Silas in 2015, two and a half years into their marriage. No matter what's going on with the two of them and their marriage, the couple always puts Silas first. He's their primary consideration.

After the photos of Timberlake and Wainwright were published, sources close to the couple made it clear that Biel and Timberlake had a lot of work to do, but that they would be doing what was best for Silas. They focused on spending the holidays with him.

They've Promised Not to Fight in Front of Their Son

Though the couple is going through a tough time, they've made an important decision about how they'll handle those tough times when it comes to their son Silas. A source close to the couple says that Timberlake and Biel, "have agreed not to fight or argue in front of him. Justin and Jessica have so much fun at home with him. It’s very cute to see.”

The source said that Biel and Timberlake are committed to creating a healthy environment for Silas no matter what's going on in their lives.

Should They Keep Their Struggles From Silas?

Some have questioned whether the decision not to fight in front of their son is actually healthier for Silas. Critics of the decision say that having healthy arguments in front of kids helps them to understand that parents can argue and still love each other. They also say that hiding things from children, who are more intuitive than we think, can make the child feel like they're doing something wrong.

Others have praised the couple for prioritizing their son's mental health over what's going on in their lives.

Each family gets to decide what's best for them, so hopefully, this helps their family get through this tough time.
