Soap opera couples: they fall in love, deal with conflict, break up, and more often than not…they get back together. It’s a never-ending cycle in the world of daytime drama, one that keeps audiences tuned in daily and weekly. Some couples break up for a concrete reason. Sometimes it is due to contract negotiations around the actors and others break up simply for the drama of it all. Then there are some that can’t seem to stay apart, yet also can’t keep it together at times. Below is a list of the top seven soap couples that have broken up the most times.
7. Chad DiMera and Abigail Deveraux – Days of Our Lives
This young couple makes it at the bottom of our list because, while they have only split up a handful of times, the two have really been going back and forth at it since 2011. They struggled to get into a relationship, as Abigail was slightly concerned about dating a DiMera, and they had to deal with Kate DiMera (Chad’s once stepmother) keeping them apart. They also had issues when Chad ended up falling for Abigail’s BFF, Melanie Jonas. Despite entering relationships with others, the two found their way back to each other in early 2013, and Chad became Abigail’s first lover. Still, Chad’s deceptions and lies ruined that stint…and the two broke up. It seems that nothing can keep these two apart, no matter how much they keep screwing up. With Abigail now pregnant with Chad’s baby, thanks to a one-night stand, they still aren’t together, but it’s only really a matter of time…NBC
