Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are probably the most closely watched celebrity couple at the moment. Many fans consider their relationship a testimony of true love being able to survive all trials. They have been through everything that a couple can go through to prove the enduring nature of their love.
Cyrus was only 16 and Hemsworth 19 when they met as co-stars on the set of the romantic drama The Last Song in June 2009. Cyrus played the role of a rebellious teenage girl by the name of Veronica Miller, while Hemsworth played the role of Will Blakelee, a popular teenage volleyball player. Through it all, the real-life Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got caught up in the onscreen romance of their characters.
The fact that their relationship survived so many ups and downs, and multiple breakups and reconciliations is remarkable. Their love was even strong enough to survive more than two years of heartbreaking separation, from September 2013 to January 2016, after which they reunited and got engaged a second time.
With some hindsight, we have to agree with Cyrus' assessment that their breakup in September 2013 was for the best. It was necessary to allow them to grow and come to better appreciate the privilege of their relationship.

MILEY CYRUS USED TO WEAR A PURITY RING
During her Disney Channel days, Miley Cyrus was one of several teen stars, including the Jonas Brothers (Nick, Joe and Kevin), and Jessica Simpson, who wore purity rings and openly talked about their commitment to abstinence. Cyrus once bragged in a 2008 interview with TV Guide that The Bible was her how-to guide to life and that she liked to think of herself as the girl that no one can get.
The Hannah Montana star admitted that many of the girls in her group were betraying their promise to wait until marriage, but she was determined to abstain. However, by 2012, Cyrus had ditched her purity ring and reportedly declared that parents need to be open with their kids about physical intimacy, which she described as beautiful and magical.
