All - Marriages where nobody cheated...


Recommended Posts

Happily married on soaps usually means back burner so often the writers have one partner have a one night stand or affair to provide some story.

Who are some married characters that succumbed to temptation and were led astray and who were those who managed to remain faithful and still remain active in the story?

Of course some couples were sacrosanct eg Tom & Alice Horton,Nancy & Chris Hughes.

Let's discuss soap marriages and which affairs were justified and what other devices writers used to break up couples.

Amy and Brick Wallace of SB were happily married and committed to each other until their union of less than a year was shattered when Amy was caught in an explosion at the beach bar where she worked. Sure, they had issues to deal with - mostly with family and with money (or lack therof), but nothing that ever got either to stray. They were pretty much in the thick of things the entire time both were on the show.

Didn't Snapper and Chris on Y&R remain faithful after getting married?

Yes,Chris and Snapper remained married while they were on the show. A few years ago when David Hasselhoff returned to the show as Snapper, Jill asked him how Chris was. They did have storylines that caused drama in their marriage. Casey Reed and Snapper became close during Chris absence and Jack (as played by Terry Lester) persued Chris at one point, but it never led to infidelity.

Well, it kind of depends. To me, ATWT's Jack and Carly never cheated on each other. There's an iffy instance of amnesia on Jack's part---but to me, if you're not sure of who you are or if you're married, it's clearly not the same as cheating or a ONS.

What's funny is that while they didn't cheat on each other, they cheated on others with each other. One of my most treasured ATWT memories is Jack sleeping with Carly days after he married Katie. It still sends a warm tingly feeling through me. LOL.

Joe and Ruth Martin (AMC) go into the sacrosanct category as well. They married in 1972 and besides a brief separation due to Joe's brief attraction to a Leora Sanders(no hanky panky of course because he's Dr. Joe!), they have been 100% faithful to each other.

Yes Bill Bell managed to keep Chris & Snapper together.They had the whole Ron/Nancy/Karen Becker drama to deal with and various other minor traumas but never strayed.

Paul Williams has been through several marriages - April,Lauren,Isabella,Christine but I don't think infidelity played a part in any of those marriages breaking down?

In their second go round Mac & Rachel Cory never cheated and stayed together for 6 years until his death.

Did Erica Kane cheat on any of her many husbands and did said husbands fool around behind Erica's back?

Leslie and Brad on Y&R never cheated as far as I am aware. They married in 1975 and divorced in 1978. She sort of dated Brock as the marriage ended but I think that wasn't until after the actual divorce papers were signed.

Two borderline examples on Y&R

Rex and Kay on Y&R, although he slept with Marge (he thought she was Kay) He also hooked up with Jill but after his "divorce" from Kay/Marge. When Rex and Kay re-married they never cheated as far as I know.

Drucilla and Neil on Y&R, can we count the Malcolm incident, since Dru was so out of it? It wasn't intentional anyway. When did Dru and Neil divorce? I stopped watching Y&R daily from episodes that aired in the US in 99 so not as sure of the storylines after that. Were they married when Neil and Victoria dated?

    • Actually Erica is kind of like Estee Lauder.  She, like Erica, grew up in working class while dreaming of being an actress, famous and being around wealthy men. She ended up co founding her own cosmetics company with the help of a wealthy husband.
    • Erica's fame is a funny thing to measure. She spent years ascending in the modeling world, but didn't succeed at establishing herself in show business. For a few years, she succeeded as a magazine publisher, then definitely succeeded as an entreprenur. Along the way, her husbands increased in prominence. Also, of course, she's got her fame as a talk show hostess (Was The Cutting Edge strictly local? Could it be seen nationally, or at least in NYC?) and retroactive icon of her heyday. Did I miss anything? I can't quite compare Erica to one person, although I suppose Janice Dickinson would be the closest analogue in terms of modeling (I'm open to better suggestions). And Tina Brown for the Tempo years. Enchantment was likely following the lead of Elizabeth Taylor, Cher and Joan Collins' perfumes, but I personally think of it more along the lines of Jessica Alba and the Honest Company (a surprise and highly lucrative second act). The retroactive icon of her heyday ... I guess Erica's like every woman who's survived to give commentary for a pop culture documentary. Also, now that I'm writing this, I think there was a big missed opportunity not having Erica hook up with a rock star (he doesn't have to be British, but it wouldn't have hurt) during her modeling years.
