9 Forgotten Soap Opera Couples
Soap operas are filled with adventure, drama, and love stories. Most fans have that one favorite show and are secretly rooting for at least one of the on-going romances. As such, audiences will tune in daily and weekly to watch these lovebirds go through their respective trials and tribulations. Some soap couples are currently still loving it up with each other on the air, while other couples have either broken up or are long gone. Below is a list of nine of soap operas’ forgotten couples.
9. Y&R’s Phillip Chancellor III and Christine Blair
After so many years it was revealed that the Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Phillip Chancellor III was actually homosexual and had no interest in women, which would explain why he faked his own death and had so many failed relationships. We all remember the saga he had with Nina Webster … but what started that couple? Back in the late 1980s, before Nina was a thought in his mind, Phillip had a fling with Christine. The two were engaged and headed to the alter until Nina changed his mind. She wound up pregnant with his child and his relationship with Cricket was over.
8. GH’s Jagger Cates and Karen Wexler
In the land of General Hospital (GH) there are three themes that dominate the show: the ins and outs of hospital life, the mob scene and love. When good girl Karen Wexler hooked up with bad boy Jagger Cates, fans swooned. The couple certainly did have their ups and downs in the 1990s, not to mention an interfering Brenda Barrett, and ended up sharing an incredible romance … which included a walk down the aisle. But like everything in soaps, this couple didn’t ‘end up’ together. GH fans sure enjoyed it while it lasted!
