Despite Victor's protests, Justin married Adrienne in Greece. They immediately started fighting due to his continuing ties to his family's shady business. The marriage faced other obstacles, including Justin's affair with Angelica Deveraux and Adrienne's affair with a stable hand, Emilio. Nevertheless, they were able to work through their problems and find their way back to each other.
When Adrienne discovered Justin had fathered a son with Angelica as a result of his affair, she divorced him and started her own construction company to rival his. This brought the ex-spouses closer in both competition and proximity. Eventually they reunited and remarried. After some difficulty conceiving, Adrienne became pregnant, and the happy family moved to Texas to open A.J. Construction. They eventually moved to Dubai for business.
When Justin returned to Salem as a lawyer, he confessed to Bo and Hope that he and Adrienne were done for good. Adrienne eventually returned, as well, after Hope called her back under the pretense that Justin was in trouble. Adrienne bought the Cheatin' Heart.
Justin participated in a mild flirtation with Hope during her separation from Bo, but the relationship went nowhere. In the meantime, Justin threw himself into his work. He and Adrienne struggled with their divorce and eventually found their way back to each other. They went to Vegas and remarried. Soon they welcomed their son Jackson "Sonny" Kiriakis, who is gay, back to town. They supported him when he came out to his Uncle Victor and as he made a home for himself with his new life.
