9 Soap Opera Couples We Never Thought Would Make It
Love certainly makes the soap opera world go round. There are times when two people look like they are simply made for soap opera super couple status and others that just don’t fit the bill. For many long-time and loyal fans, there is nothing better than seeing your favorite two soap stars in love and together, despite the many trials and tribulations thrown their way. Below is a list of nine soap opera couples that have simply made it…regardless of the odds stacked against them.
9. Belle Black and Shawn Brady – Days of Our Lives
It seemed these two were destined to be together since they were children. They hung out a considerable amount back then since their parents (Bo/Hope and Marlena/John) were close friends, so once they hit high school they instantly became lovebirds. These two have been through it all: people trying to manipulate things to keep them apart, affairs, baby paternity issues and did we mention affairs? Despite these issues, here they are in 2016 with a renewed lease on their relationship and their family. Some may have thought they wouldn’t make it after all these years, but they certainly have proved many wrong.
8. Cane and Lily Ashby – The Young and the Restless
It seemed to almost take forever for these two to hook up in the first place back in 2008 when a 19-year-old Lily was smitten with a 31-year-old Cane. But once the age thing was cleared up, it was smooth sailing. Well, not really. Did they love each other and have incredible chemistry? Absolutely! They dealt with initial issues when it came Cane’s identity crisis and lying and then there was Lily’s cancer. When Cane’s past came back to haunt him and his Australian mob boss dad surfaced — that was certainly another challenge, but the love for each other was always there. Until just recently when Lily had an affair and all bets were off. Thankfully this Young and the Restless (Y&R) super couple was able to patch up this infidelity, not only for their kids, but for the unique love they share.
