They’ve been Days of our Lives family forever. Justin (Wally Kurth) was married to Adrienne (Judi Evans), while Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) was married — on and off — to Adrienne’s brother, Steve (Stephen Nichols).
Days of our Lives Polling
But then Adrienne died. We’re still not sure how and why, though we know Will (Chandler Massey) was responsible, and he feels so guilty about it he’s serving a jail sentence and asking to divorce Sonny (Freddie Smith). And then Steve divorced Kayla — from a distance.
So what choice did Justin and Kayla have but to fall in love themselves? Salem is a very small town and the pickings are slim. But are fans on board? How over 2,000 fans feel:
A Is For Awkward, Not Adrienne
It’s so weird and awkward, 63% of Days of our Lives fans whine. They’re like siblings, but not exactly siblings. Like childhood friends. Anything except passionate lovers. We get that they’re older and their hearts have been broken multiple times. They’re not looking for blood-pounding excitement, they’re looking for companionship and happiness.
But you know what fans are not looking for? Boredom. And that’s what Justin and Kayla are offering. Boring awkwardness. The worst of both worlds.

Adrienne may be dead, but Steve is still in there somewhere. And once Stefano is chased out like the demon he is, Steve better make a beeline for his sweetness. And Justin better get out of the way!
S Is For Sweet
Then again, 37% find Justin and Kayla sweet together. Love doesn’t always have to be high drama and sobbing. There is something to say for no drama, comfort, and a lack of physical danger.
Justin and Kayla know what they want, and they’re not rushing things. They have a foundation for a long-lasting relationship. This is what they both deserve after years – decades – of roller-coaster rides. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
