Here are all the reasons they should have gotten together.

When they return from the hospital, Phoebe has bathed, changed diapers and put the triplets to bed, but the apartment was destroyed in the process.
All is forgiven when Monica and Chandler see how proud Phoebe is of her baby-sitting job. Joey finds a set of Porsche keys that have been left in the coffeehouse. When he cannot find the owner, but does find the car, Joey pretends the car is his and revels in the attention he gets as a "Porsche owner".

David is torn as to whether or not to leave. The trouble is, at no stage during deliberations did Phoebe ever volunteer to go with David to Minsk.
Remember, Phoebe is the most free-spirited, and the friend with the least amount of ties, so aside from missing her friends, she could easily have started anew with him. Instead, she was, initially, willing to let David sacrifice his career for her. Love, a game of give and take, eh?Secret Love Song - Joey and Phoebe [ Friends ]
Amazingly though, Phoebe succumbs to peer pressure from Monica and Rachel, who think well, screw the orphans, she deserves a big, fancy wedding! In an act of incredible selflessness, she goes back to the charity to refund her donation. Then she changes her mind and gives it back. Then she changes her mind again. Taking place out in the snow in New York, it's a glorious occasion.
Well, turns out they were not the only people not on the guest list. That her birth mother Phoebe Abbott, whom Phoebe has a decent relationship with, is not in attendance at the wedding, is a little harder to understand, as is the fact that she is not mentioned on the day or on the build-up to the wedding. Abandoned by Frank just like Phoebe, they had no way of knowing each other's existence and are both victims of circumstance. Knight, if you will who is 26 years his senior, Phoebe is shocked by the news and against the wedding.
In spite of her understandable prejudices, she eventually accepts the marriage, which leads us nicely to our next entry. The couple only want one thing, and that is a child, but since Alice cannot conceive, they want Phoebe remember her? Phoebe is understandably reluctant, but, bizarrely, acquiesces much quicker to the idea of bearing her brother's offspring than the idea of him marrying a woman twice his age.
Seeking council, she approaches her birth mom and namesake for advice. But perhaps the biggest question of all is, why Phoebe?
This Is The Reason Joey And Phoebe Never Hooked Up On 'Friends'
Why not a friend of Frank or Alice? And why not simply choose a surrogate mother who is not related to one of the parents by blood? Phoebe reveals that she married the man, Duncan, so that he could get a green card and a path to citizenship in the United States. The only problem is that Phoebe genuinely liked him, but it could never work because Duncan is gay.
When the two meet at Madison Square Garden, where Duncan is ice-skating, he asks Phoebe for a divorce. He also claims that he is, in fact, straight, and that he met someone else, a fact which comes as a shock to Phoebe. There are many questions with regards to this episode.
Friends: What happened AFTER the last episode?!
First of all, where did Phoebe meet this man? What was it exactly in Canada that he was running from which made him seek asylum in the US, and why are all ice skaters presumed gay? As we discovered earlier on, they both have a lot in common and were not tied to one of the other friends like Ross, Rachel, Monica, and Chandler. Phoebe, of course, already has one.
Her back up is, of course, Joey, which leaves Rachel with one obvious choice: Moreover, why did Phoebe ask someone so antithetical as Ross to be the back up to her back up? And why did she not have the common courtesy to tell Ross that he was her second choice; well, technically third. She uses many more times across the final five seasons: She uses it so often that it is obviously of some significance.
Naturally enough, this irritates the heck out of Ross, who goes out of his way to try and prove to his friend that evolution is an indisputable fact. In fairness, at the end of the episode, Phoebe does a decent job of using previously disproved scientific theories to support her argument that the theory of evolution could, in time, be proven wrong, which is used as a narrative tool throughout the episode to humble Ross.
Ross is still married to Carol, Monica is still fat, and Joey never got fired from Days of Our Lives and is very successful. Phoebe undergoes the most drastic change of all though, becoming an uptight, chain-smoking stockbroker.
As atypical of her character as this is, the reason the real world woman gives for not taking the job initially offered to her by a massage client is vintage Phoebe Buffay. Now, if you think that eating meat is cruel and unnecessary, then the idea of wearing fur would be nothing short of an ideological anathema.
Rachel, again, persuades Phoebe to go against her principles and keep the coat it also helps that Phoebe concludes that it looks really good on her. Why is she so susceptible to peer pressure? Is Rachel actually her friend? Can Phoebe really talk to squirrels and are minks really jerks?
