John’s list of wives, fiancees, and girlfriends has been plentiful during his 30-year run on Days of Our Lives
John (Drake Hogestyn) has had his share of identities – and women — since first surfacing on Days of Our Lives back in 1986. Originally, he fell in love with Marlena, believing he was her presumed dead husband, Roman. Later, he went on to marry and conceive a child with Isabella. Then, there was his short-lived romance with Kate. Soap Hub asked fans which woman you think was best with John.
It’s Marlena (Deidre Hall) by a landslide. No surprise here. Some 70% of fans believe she is John’s true love and soulmate. She befriended and guided him when he arrived in Salem as The Pawn, a man with no identity. As their friendship grew, it developed into a strong unbreakable bond, surpassing all others. As a result, you think “Doc” will always be #1 in John’s heart and his best match.
