A great soap opera super couple needs three key ingredients: chemistry, adventurous (and ongoing) storylines, as well as a genuine love for one another. The land of daytime drama is filled with couples — some good, some okay, and some who simply didn’t work. Then there are those super couples who create magic on daytime screens, but still never end up together. Below are 12 great soap opera couples who should’ve made it, but never did.

However, Dylan was different. He truly accepted Sharon for exactly who she was and genuinely understood and forgave her whenever she withheld the truth from him. Dylan ended up leaving Genoa City and divorcing Sharon, but this had to do more with his job and entering the witness protection program than a lack of wanting to work things out.
