Soap operas are made up of couples of all ages, meeting and falling in love. But there’s something special about that first love and all of their trials and tribulations that can capture the imagination of all viewers.
There have certainly been some sweeping love stories that have played out over the years and some stand out more than others.
Soap Hub asked fans which of the standout ones was your favorite and you were somewhat torn in which couple to choose.
Bo and Hope
An impressive 45% felt the love story of Bo (Peter Reckell) and his Fancy Face, AKA Hope (Kristian Alfonso), on Days of Our Lives (DOOL), should take top honors. And who could blame them? Bo was bigger than life to high schooler, Hope, fresh off a crush on his brother Roman.
They survived everything Stefano and his family as well as Bo’s father, Victor, threw at them and their love only grew stronger. Their adventures were legendary, as was their love.
Luke and Laura
While their wedding may have gotten the highest daytime ratings ever, General Hospital lovebirds Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura (Genie Francis) only garnered 38% of the vote for the all-time best young love story.
They saved the world, stopped the mob – all after a start that shocked daytime. Their story started long before the rape at the Campus Disco but that kicked this complicated tale into high gear.
Sharon and Nick
Still, 13% believe that Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) from The Young and the Restless (YR) had the best young love story ever. Nick was Sharon’s savior and fell in love with her in the process. Their story only has one rival on the show – his folks.
RJ and Coco
Only 3% believe the new love story of RJ (Anthony Turpel) and Coco (Courtney Grosbeck) on The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) should take top honors. These kids are real and refreshing and who doesn’t love a version of Romeo and Juliet?
