There is nothing worse for a soap opera fan then watching two characters that shouldn’t be together, carry on with a bland relationship. In a world of romance, love, and soap opera super couples – when two characters don’t have belong together, it can be agonizing to watch daily and weekly. Below is a top five list of some soap opera couples that we wish would just break up already.
5. Summer Newman and Kyle Abbott – The Young and the Restless
Sure, their romance started off pretty interesting. Older man, younger impressionable girl. Add their Capulet-Montague-like family feud, and they really did have a recipe for a solid soap opera couple. Then of course, there was that awkward time period where they thought they were half siblings; still, once they realized they weren’t, all that sexual tension that had been building over the years should have exploded…right? Well, not so much. Cast changes for Kyle could’ve been the downfall of this couple, not to mention Summer’s less than stellar character development (time to grow up Summer…SORAS has turned you into a young woman, quit acting like that little girl who use to take her stuffed bunny everywhere). Whatever it is, the couple needs to end, and needs to end now.
