Guiding Light had an incredible 72-year run as soap opera. It was broadcast on both television and radio over the years and still lies as America’s longest-running drama in TV history within the Guinness World Records. Fans tuned in daily to watch the incredible storylines, as well as the adventure, intrigue, and romance (of course). Speaking of, the show had some great super couples emerge over the years. Below are 12 Guiding Light couples who had the best chemistry.
12. Beth and Phillip
Starting the list off is a couple from the 1980s that viewers easily fell in love with, Phillip Spaulding and Beth Raines. In typical soap opera coupledom for this time period, Beth was a shy girl with a horrible secret, while Phillip was her knight in shining armor (who also happened to be rich). He would end up helping her through a lot of painful past memories of abuse. The duo endured it all over the years: deaths, mental breakdowns, kidnapping, other relationships, and split personalities.
