Quote 1bluegoose: Does anyone feel any less aggression towards Hope? Is it less offensive that Hope pursued Liam? I'm just wondering if Hope gets any slack because of Steffy's admission.
Not at all. Hope tried to and successfully destroyed a marriage - and a marriage is more sacred than an engagement imo.
Two wrongs do not make a right - certainly not if Hope was preaching about morality etc.
I would have and will feel less aggression towards Hope is she wasn't on her soapbox the whole time.
But how sacred is it if Steffy purposely tricked the husband into it.....???
Not at all until Steffy confessed and Liam forgave her. He had a choice to walk out of the marriage, but chose to stick with Steffy. They agreed on a clean slate - but as usual, Liam lies to himself and everybody else.
It isn't Steffy's fault that Hope and the Logans couldn't handle Liam's choice to stick with Steffy and went all out to break up that marriage. Despite the fact that Liam doesn't know what he does ALL the time, the moment he CHOSE to recommit to Steffy puts him and Hope entirely in the blame for that failed marriage.
Thats NOT what happened. We saw Liam forgive Steffy for what she did in aspen, on the very firm condition that she NEVER lie to him, or manipulate him again.
Then they went to cabo, and Steffy was caught once again lying to her husband/insurance policy. The one thing she knew he would not tolerate. That is why their marriage ended.
Steffy, and only Steffy was the blame for that. Not Hope.
I presume you hadn't read my post no.25 before putting in your 2 cents. I cannot blame Steffy for keeping Hope's whereabouts secret from Liam in Cabo. God forbid if I was in that situation with a cheating loser husband like Liam and I actually really loved him, I think I would do the same.
Seriously, Hope is blameless? WHO in their right mind rings up their ex while he is on vacation with his wife to tell him that you still love him and that this guy (Tom) is interested in you and to give your ex the status of her hymen?
True that Liam was already daydreaming about Hope, but Hope was at fault for telling Liam that her hymen was still in tact and waiting for him etc. I doubt Liam would have been in such a tizzy if Hope actually practised what she preached and KEPT HER DISTANCE during the marriage and REBUFFED Liam's attempts to get close to her.
As we can argue til the moon turns blue whether it's Hope's or Steffy's fault, let's just agree that Liam is primarily at fault. He wrecked his marriage with Steffy, and is in the process of wrecking his marriage with Hope.
Yes I did read that aswell #25, and what your saying is Steffy didn't lie in cabo, only omit truth about Hope being there right ?
I have to disagree with that aswell, there was more to it than that.
Liam was actually putting in an effort with Steffy, and wanted to try and bond with her in cabo, however every attempt he made to spend time with her, she took off leaving him there by himself.
Then came the direct question from Liam about where she had been, and she flat out lied and told him, she had been getting private lessons in massage just for him.
Steffy was also working with Thomas to get Hope drunk, and take advantage of her. Liam quickly worked out the truth when they were on the balcony watching a tipsy to drunk Hope with Thomas.
Hope called Liam when they were there, and in the spirit of their deal, he told Steffy straight away, and that could have been her perfect opportunity to tell him the truth, but she let things spiral out of control.
Liam made it very clear his marriage with Steffy ended because of her own actions, nobody else was responsible.
So no, I don't agree Liam is primarily responsible for his marriage with Steffy ending. He may be responsible for so much, too much, but not that. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.
