It has since been confirmed that the photo of the pair enjoying lunch in West Hollywood dates back to 2005 and was taken just a few months after the show ended its 10-year run in 2004.

Characters Chandler and Monica got married in season seven of the show, after first beginning a romantic relationship at the end of season four.
