As the old saying goes, “it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all.” Still, soap opera fans can get pretty attached to the characters they watch daily, and when a super couple they adore breaks up, it can be a real downer. However, when two soap characters shack up, that aren’t really meant to be, when they do split, more often than not, soap fans will not shed a tear…rather they may rejoice! Therefore, below is a list of five soap opera couples that fans may have been happy to see break up.
5. Aiden Jennings and Hope Williams – Days of Our Lives
It was somewhat refreshing to see Hope in a new relationship when she first started seeing Aiden, after pining for Bo Brady, for many years. However, once it was clear that Aiden wasn’t the sweet, charming, and loving man Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans thought he was, it became infuriating. Not sure if this can really be labelled as a break up, since Bo essentially killed Aiden to save Hope. Nonetheless, the ending of the relationship was something most DOOL fans were happy to see. While sadly, Bo is gone, and Rafe and Hope seem to be moving into relationship territory, here’s hoping ‘Fancy Face’ can finally find super couple love, once again. Still, with spoilers buzzing that Daniel Cosgrove, the actor who played Aiden, is returning to DOOL for an extended length of time, who knows what the future holds for Hope?
