When fans tune into the popular daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives (DOOL), they know they will be entertained by some dramatic storylines, plot twists at every turn, and of course, steamy love scenes. When it comes to the small town of Salem, love and romance rule the land — with people falling in and out of love daily. Therefore it is natural for cupid to hit his arrow of love on some daytime actors, behind the scenes at the soap, and it happens more than you think. Below is a list of the top five real-life couples of DOOL.
5. Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad DiMera) and Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Jonas)
Chad DiMera and Melanie Jonas had quite a love affair in their younger years, but way before that was even a glimmer in the eyes of DOOL writers, actors Casey Deidrick and Molly Burnett enjoyed a little fling of their own. Meeting on the DOOL set in 2009, the two actors briefly dated for approximately a year, ending their relationship in 2010. While the relationship was not serious and the two were never engaged, married or had any children, they both were able to have fun, yet still sustain a productive and professional working relationship. Interesting enough, well after these two split up, they found their characters Melanie and Chad falling in love in 2012.
