10 Days Of Our Lives Couples Ranked From Worst To Best
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has always known how to assemble the perfect super couple. They have been doing it for years now! For over five decades, audiences have marveled at watching Salem residents fall in and out of love. DOOL couples make up, then break up, only to get back together again. So the question remains, — who has been the best of the best over the years? We’ve got the answers! Below is a list of 10 DOOL super couples ranked.
10. Abigail Deveraux and Chad DiMera
Affectionately known to internet fans as Chabby, this newer DOOL couple have sure had their fair share of ups and downs. These two have suffered through mental health issues, other Salemites interfering in their marriage, and then there was the time we all thought Abby was dead. Alas, they do have a child together and love still exists between this couple despite the fact that they are currently on the outs.
9. Marlena Evans and Roman Brady
These two were a huge super couple in the 1980s and 1990s. But the fact that they were both presumed dead at differing points of their relationship really caused a huge rift between this couple. While they did go their own separate ways, they were eventually able to maintain a friendship and co-parent their children together.
8. Maggie Horton and Victor Kiriakis
These two are proof that love and super couple status can occur at any age. While Maggie did have an incredible love affair with Mickey Horton, she certainly has something special with the Greek tycoon. They came together later in life, and after having to deal with the insane Vivian Alamain, Maggie and Victor said ‘I do’ in 2011. While Victor has always been a hard nose, there is definitely a softer side to him now that he is with Maggie.
7. Nicole Walker and Brady Black
The beauty of this relationship is that regardless of whether Nicole is making good life choices or not, Brady has always accepted her for who she is. He’s also been a friend to her when no one in Salem was and always supported her through the many ups and downs in her life. While things seem a bit crazy right now for Nicole and Brady, these two have a great chemistry, a strong bond and lots of love.
6. Sami Brady and E.J. DiMera
It is undeniable that Sami and E.J. had a ton of chemistry between them, but they also were quite toxic for one another. Despite this, they managed to walk down the aisle together three times and raised two beautiful children (along with Sami’s two others with Lucas Horton) together. They shared a lot of love, happiness, and memories, but that wasn’t enough. Sadly this union ended with E.J.’s untimely passing in 2014, but here’s hoping he can return to Salem someday to rekindle this romance.
5. Carrie and Austin Reed
Hasn’t it been great seeing these two lovebirds on DOOL as of late? The romance between these two has been incredible. At the end of the day, the only thing that has come between them are other people trying to scheme their way to the top and rip this relationship apart. Carrie and Austin have been together since the early ’90s and it is comforting to know that they are still going strong today, no matter what the DOOL storylines might put them through.
4. Marlena Evans and John Black
Speaking of still going strong, there is such beauty in the long-lasting relationship between Marlena and John. Even when Marlena thought John was actually Roman, she still loved him. When she found out he wasn’t Roman, she loved him anyways. Despite him not even knowing exactly who he was, Marlena stuck by his side. This romance has spanned over three decades now. In the midst of so much uncertainty in Salem, fans can always rely on John and Marlena.
3. Hope Williams and Bo Brady
Speaking of relationships that span through the decades, we come to the number three super couple on this list: Bo and Hope. Opposites attract in the world of soaps and no one did this better than these two. They embarked on adventures, did plenty of romantic getaways, and had that certain spark that some daytime drama couples lack nowadays. Sadly, Bo passed away in late 2015, but not before he was able to save his Fancy Face from disaster one more time. Many DOOL couples come and go, but not many are like Bo and Hope.
2. Kayla and Steve Johnson
After all these years, Patch and his Sweetness still know how to turn on the romance in Salem. The couple got together in the late ‘80s and since then DOOL fans have been drawn to them. While Steve “passed” away in 1990, fans of the soap waited 16 years for his return and he and Kayla would eventually reunite in 2006. They’ve had plenty of ups and downs since, but when all is said and done, these two belong together. They happily re-wed once again in early 2017 and are seemingly unstoppable.
1. Julie and Doug Williams
Before there was John and Marlena, Bo and Hope, or Steve and Kayla – there was Julie and Doug Williams, soap operas’ very first super couple. These two created so much of stir on daytime screens in the ‘70s, they landed on the cover of Time Magazine in 1976; the first and only time this would happen for soap characters. What’s the secret to their onscreen chemistry? Perhaps a lot of practice, as this real-life couple has been together for about four decades now.
