One toxic person on a soap opera can cause a little drama, mix them into a relationship, and you have quite the recipe for a daytime drama storyline. Unlike super couples, toxic relationships can be a hard watch for some soap fans, but much like a road side accident, it is something you find yourself slowing down for to watch…and you simply cannot keep your eyes off it. There have been many a toxic couple to grace the little town of Genoa City over the years, and below is a list of six of the most toxic couples within The Young and the Restless (Y&R).
6. Patty Williams and Jack Abbott
Poor, sweet, mentally-unstable Patty. She’s been in love (wait, scratch that out), obsessed with Jack for almost thirty years now. While the couple was once married, and awaiting a child, all that crumbled thanks to Jack’s infidelities. Unfortunately, Jack never really loved Patty, and married her to prove to his father that he had grown up, and had priorities in his life. Sadly, when Patty found this out, she shot him and has been wreaking havoc on Jack and his loved ones ever since.
