Keeping up with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's relationship hasn't always been easy.

Since meeting in 2006, the former couple have had their ups and downs over the years — the majority of which were chronicled on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its multiple spin-offs. Throughout their near-decade together, Kardashian and Disick weathered breakups and make-ups, tackled cheating allegations and welcomed three children (Mason Dash, Penelope Scotland and Reign Aston). And despite splitting for good in 2015, the exes have remained friendly and stay focused on raising their kids.

"It's great that I'm still able to have Kourtney in my life and we can still co-exist and raise our three children together," Disick has said of their co-parenting relationship.

The Poosh founder has echoed similar sentiments about parenting with Disick since they called it quits in 2015: "Scott and I, we're going to be in each other's lives forever. We are soulmates, in a sense. No matter what, whether we're ever together or not," she said on an episode of KUWTK.

From their early days on reality television to their current status as co-parents and cordial exes, here is a complete look at Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's relationship.

Kardashian met New York-native Disick at a gathering at their mutual friend Joe Francis' home in Mexico in 2006. Kardashian later shared a photo from that night on her Instagram account, showing the two of them sitting at opposite ends of a couch with friends and Francis in between.

On a later episode of Kourtney & Khloé Take the Hamptons, Kardashian admitted that their meeting was not love at first sight.

"I liked her," Disick said. "But she wanted nothing to do with me."

"I just thought he was so annoying," Kardashian said of their first encounter. "He was four years younger, he lived in New York, he didn't have a job."

October 14, 2007: Scott Disick appears on the series premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend

In the first episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kardashian introduced Disick to the public as her boyfriend. "We were friends for about a year and then started dating, and have been together ever since," she said in the premiere.

However, Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner expressed her doubts about Disick's maturity and fidelity. "I have serious doubts about Scott," Jenner said in the episode. "I found out he's cheating on Kourtney and as her mom, I want to tell her but I don't know how."

Jenner later confronted Disick about whether he was ready for a serious relationship with her eldest daughter. "To me, he's really young and I just don't see somebody his age settling down into that kind of life right now," she said of the then-24-year-old.

Disick, however, expressed his love and commitment to Kardashian. "I love her to death," he said. "I will never do anything to disrespect your daughter."

November 18, 2007: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick almost marry in Las Vegas 

On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Disick asked Kardashian if she wanted to marry him after a night partying in Las Vegas.

"Would you hate it if I asked you to marry me right now, or tomorrow?" he asked as they headed back to their hotel room. "I've never wanted to do anything more."

Kardashian initially agreed, and the couple went as far as going to the Little White Chapel with sisters Khloé and Kim and mom Kris in tow. But Jenner talked Kardashian out of the Vegas wedding before the two could walk down the aisle.

"This feels wrong," Jenner said to Kardashian. "You're rushing it."

Kardashian and Disick agreed to put a stop to their Vegas nuptials. "I guess Scott and I will just keep living in sin," Kardashian said in the episode.

March 9, 2008: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick split for the first time

Kardashian and her sisters Kim and Khloé discovered text messages on an old phone of Disick's from someone named "my wife." The texts lead the reality star to believe Disick had cheated on her while in the Hamptons, and she confronted him on the season two premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"I cannot believe Scott could have cheated on me. I'm sick to my stomach that this could have happened," Kardashian said on the episode.

The two split soon after. "Unless you can be honest, I have no reason to talk to you again," Kardashian said to Disick at the time.

August 13, 2009: Kourtney Kardashian reveals she is expecting her first child with Scott Disick 

Kardashian confirmed she was expecting her first child with Scott Disick just days before her spin-off Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami premiered on E!.

"We were in the Everglades, and I kept feeling nauseous and sick. I just kept thinking something wasn't feeling right," she said. "I've never missed a period in my life. Literally, I took like 20 tests; I went to the doctor and he confirmed the news. I was just so shocked."

Kardashian later revealed that the unplanned pregnancy was the result of a fling with her ex Disick. The two had since reconciled, but the reality television star was still anxious to tell her family about the pregnancy — since their distrust of Disick had been chronicled on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She also spoke to PEOPLE about how she and Disick agonized initially over whether to keep the baby.

"I felt in my body, this is meant to be," she said. "God does things for a reason, and I just felt like it was the right thing that was happening in my life."

December 14, 2009: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick welcome their first baby

Kardashian and Disick became first-time parents when the reality star gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Mason Dash Disick. Weighing in at 7 lbs., 6 oz., the first Kardashian grandchild was born nine days ahead of his Dec. 23 due date.

Kardashian infamously pulled out Mason herself during the birth, which was later featured on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Not only were cameras present, but so were her sisters Khloé and Kim, and her mom Kris.

"​​The experience was so indescribable and life-changing, and I can't believe he's all mine," Kardashian said at the time.

"It's honestly like a little piece of me was just reborn," added Disick. "And I'm so happy I'm here with Kourtney."

In an episode of season two of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kardashian breaks things off with Disick for a second time after a night of drinking leads to him punching a mirror.

"I don't know where this crazy anger comes from," Kardashian said in the episode. "He gets this crazy rage inside of him that's not okay."

She later told Disick their relationship was over until he got help for his drinking and anger. "You're not going to be around Mason while you're working on yourself," she said in the episode. "I can't do this s--- anymore. I love Mason more than I love you and that's what it is."

Days after the episode aired, Kris revealed at a press event for Keeping Up With the Kardashians that the couple was "really trying to work on their relationship." A rep for the show confirmed Kardashian and Disick were in couples therapy, and Disick was abstaining from drinking.

"Scott is really trying to work on himself," Kris said. "Scott has really stepped up to the plate. It's been amazing."

April 2011: Scott Disick considers proposing to Kourtney Kardashian  

On the season one finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Disick planned to propose to Kardashian while celebrating their anniversary. However, he never got the chance — since Kardashian revealed she was content with their life as a family of three.

"Things are so good now and we have finally come to this place, why would we want to change that," Kardashian said in the episode. "I just feel like right now I'm pretty happy with the way things are."

Though Disick never went through with the proposal, the couple and baby Mason did move in together upon returning to California.

"I'm literally on the verge of a mental breakdown," Kardashian said in the episode. "I can't believe that this is where my life is at right now. I've worked so hard to keep this family together, it just makes me sad for the kids."

She added, "He's not being a good partner to me. I could never rely on him, depend on him for one single thing and I don't want to show my kids that that's okay. I love Scott, but I've been dealing with this for so long, it's definitely not good for me. At this point I'm really just trying to focus on me and the kids and make them the priority."

The source continued: "He was always accepted by the family, even at his absolute lows, and now he can't even come to one of the biggest events of the family. He's not handling it well."
