If you didn’t watch soaps, you still knew who Luke and Laura were in 1981. The supercouple basically saved General Hospital and saved the genre. They inspired a phenomenon and even a few hit songs.

That was 35 years ago today, and although Luke and Laura are no longer married, they’ll always have the hearts of soap fans.
