General Hospital fans remember that Sonny and Carly’s relationship was forged in hate and blackmail.
General Hospital Polling
Carly (then Sarah Brown) was in love with Jason (Steve Burton) but had married his brother, AJ, in order to hold onto their son, Michael. Sonny (Maurice Benard) loved to taunt Carly about how she would never be good enough for Jason and would never have him.
This, naturally, led to them having sex. (But not in a crypt, which is Sonny’s current hate-sex spot.) Carly became pregnant and Sonny blackmailed her into marrying him. That would prove to Jason once and for all that the woman was no good.
One thing led to another, and Sonny and Carly lost their baby, fell in love for real, split up, had another child, split up, married, split up, married, split up. Also somewhere in there, Sonny hung AJ on a meat-hook and forced him to sign over parental rights to Michael.
Also, Michael got shot in the head and went into a coma for a year as a direct result of Sonny’s actions. But, remember – all children are safer with Sonny than they would be with their other parents.
Most recently, Sonny and Carly had another baby, and there was more danger. Plus, more fighting. Is it finally time for this pair to call it quits? What almost 3,000 viewers think:
Of course not, a landslide 91% of you dismiss. Sonny and Carly are always better together. They can deal with anything, as long as they’re side by side.
A tiny 5% voted yes. These two have been happy for minutes now. Time to break them up. This relationship is seriously dysfunctional.

And then there are the 4% who are OK with Sonny and Carly breaking up… as long as it’s only for a short time. Which it always is. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
