Days of Our Lives (DOOL) is known for some of its amazing super couples — from Patch and Kayla to Bo and Hope, Chad and Abigail, and Jack and Jennifer – the list of love affairs could go on and on! As much as DOOL loves to tell a good love story, the show is also known for romances that sometimes go wrong. While people get hitched on soaps all the time, sometimes weekly, that doesn’t mean all of the marriages in Salem have been successful. Below are some of the shortest DOOL marriages in the show’s history:

12. Vivian Alamain and Victor Kiriakis

Vivian had always had a “thing” for Victor and was able to snag the Greek tycoon in marriage twice. Neither were successful unions, especially the one that took place in 2010. Heading down the aisle in May of that year, Victor agreed to marry Vivian to protect Carly Manning from Alamain’s revenge. About nine months after the fact they divorced. Victor had fallen for Maggie Horton and the two are still together to this very day.

11. Sami Brady and Lucas Roberts

Sami could have a list of her own when it comes to quickie marriages that have ended up being annulled. However, the one in 2007 was done out of love and ended out of love. Sami and Lucas have had a complicated relationship over the years, but when they decided to get hitched while she was pregnant with Ali and Johnny, they were in a good place. As we all know, E.J. DiMera had blackmailed Sami into a romp with him early that year and Sami was left pregnant with twins! This resulted in the fact that E.J. was the father of Johnny, while Lucas had fathered Allie. In late October of that year, in an effort to protect the Brady clan from the wrath of DiMeras and bring peace to the two families, Sami had her marriage to Lucas annulled so that she could marry E.J.

10. Chloe Lane and Lucas Roberts

Speaking of Lucas, he and Chloe became friends in 2008 and eventually a little bit more as the year progressed. Chloe worked hard to be a great mother-figure to his daughter Allie and even bonded with his mom Kate after she donated her bone marrow to save her life. But Chloe also started getting closer to the handsome Dr. Daniel Jonas during that time as well. Sadly, she was going to break things off with Lucas to pursue a relationship with the good doctor until an accident almost cost Lucas his life. Chloe ended up marrying Lucas in early 2009 out of sheer guilt, only for the marriage to be annulled months later in October of that year.

9. Chloe Lane and Daniel Jonas

After Chloe’s quickie marriage to Lucas, she jumped right into another short-lived union with Daniel. The two were happy together for a while until Carly Manning entered the picture. Carly and Daniel were old friends, who also happened to share a daughter. Chloe’s jealousy got the best of her one night and she ended up sleeping with Philip Kiriakis. Chloe would later get pregnant and hide the affair from Daniel, and the fact that there was a small chance the child she was carrying was Philip’s. While Parker ended up being Daniel’s son when all was said and done, when the truth came out about Chloe’s affair, Daniel dropped her like a bad habit only about six months into their marriage.

8. Gabi Hernandez and Nick Fallon

When Nick Fallon was released on parole in 2012, everyone in Salem was a bit weary on whether or not the ex-convict, who was a little unstable, had reformed. He seemed like he had and Nick caught the eye of Gabi Hernandez. Pregnant with Will Horton’s son at the time, Nick took her under his wing, and she thought she had found her happily ever after. The two got married in March of 2013, but the marriage was annulled about five months when it had turned out Nick wasn’t as perfect as he was making himself out to be.

7. Jennifer Horton and Lawrence Alamain

Hard to believe, but these two were an item in the early 1990s when Lawrence had believed that Jennifer was an heiress to a mass fortune. He organized a quick wedding to marry Jenn (thinking she was Katerina, a.k.a. Carly Manning), and then later assaulted her. Thankfully, the two parted ways a short time after, and Lawrence eventually confessed to what he did to Jennifer and served jail time.

6. Eve Donovan and Jack Deveraux – Part I

After Jennifer cut her marriage ties to Lawrence, she and Jack were free to be together; however, what Alamain did to her affected her intimacy with Deveraux (plus, she kept the assault to herself), and the two parted ways for a brief moment in time. During their breakup, Jack married Eve so that she could gain access to her ex’s fortune, as there was a stipulation in his will. As soon she got the cash, Eve was out, and Jack and Jennifer eventually came back together.

5. Eve Donovan and Jack Deveraux – Part II

Jack’s return to the land of Salem was explosive in early 2019, but his reunion with Jenn took some time as he could not remember who he was. He got manipulated by Eve, and the two ended up getting married; however, much like their first wedding, the relationship lasted only a handful of months.

4. Kayla Brady and Jack Deveraux

Jack certainly has made some marriage mistakes in the past, hasn’t he?! While he genuinely loved Kayla in the late 1980s, he wasn’t the nicest guy in Salem back them. Kayla did marry Jack in 1987, but her heart belonged to Steve. As such, she sat on consummating their marriage, and Jack ended up assaulting during their time together. Thankfully, Jack has reformed, but needless to say, their union didn’t last long at all.

3. Teresa Donovan and Brady Black

Super couples have to endure some ups and downs before making it work. Such was the case with Teresa and Brady. When they first met, Teresa was a party girl looking to score big with richy-rich Brady. They engaged in drinking, drugs, partying, and other unmentionables. The two got hitched in a Vegas wedding in 2014, but the wedding was annulled three months later when Brady realized that he wanted to get clean and that Teresa was a gold-digging schemer.

2. Eve Donovan and Deimos Kiriakis

Eve Donovan took the Kiriakis mansion by storm in October of 2017 when she claimed to be the wife of Deimos (shortly after he passed away, of course). By her timeline, the couple would’ve only been married for some months, if not weeks, until the marriage was dissolved due to his passing.

1. Sami Brady and Brandon Walker

Sami met Brandon in the early 2000s and the young and dapper man helped her forget about her obsession with Austin Reed. While he did settle her down tremendously, Sami was still a little schemer back then. The two got married in 2003, and within hours after their wedding, Brandon left her and had the marriage annulled when he found out that Sami messed with some paternity results at the hospital.
