Jessica and her husband, Nick Lachey (at the Super Bowl in February), first met at the Hollywood Christmas Parade in 1998, and married in Austin in October 2002 following a traditional courtship. By contrast, Ashlee made the first move when she met singer-songwriter Ryan Cabrera (in Atlanta in May) while guest-starring in his video in December 2003. "I totally pulled him against the wall and started making out with him," Ashlee told Teen People of her ex-boyfriend.
