7 Young And The Restless Couples Who Are Better Off As Friends
5. Victor Newman and Ashley Abbott
Ashley lands on this list yet again, thanks to a relationship with Genoa City’s leading man. These two did make a really great couple back in the day, but Victor’s eyes always seem to be swayed back to his soul mate, Nikki. The good thing about Victor and Ashley is that they have remained friendly and have been able to co-parent their now grown-daughter Abby somewhat successfully over the years. Perhaps it is Victor’s respect for Ashley or the fact that Ash won’t put up with Victor’s attempts to intimidate. Either way, they do make a friendship work.
4. Jack Abbott and Nikki Newman
Speaking of the Abbotts, Jack has never gotten along with Victor and their rivalry over the decades has shaken up Y&R storylines. One thing that Jack has always had over Victor is his friendship with Nikki – a friendship that has (on and off) turned into romance. Right now, Jack and Nikki are on the romance upswing of things, but this could all change and fast. They’ve always made better friends than lovers anyways!
