David and Victoria Beckham wrote really sweet messages to one another on their 17th anniversary

The Beckhams' marriage often brings to mind a song lyric by the great Shania Twain: "They said I bet they'll never make it, but just look at us going strong."

Despite a few bumps and tabloid skirmishes over the years, the first couple of British showbiz have managed to stick together and appear to be as lovestruck as ever.
