Quote canada gal: Hey, I am insulted.
I am no where close to being a Phick shipper, in fact,I was a big Shick supporter until the writers kept dicking around with the home-wrecker.
I fell in love with Shadam, because Adam did what Nick failed to do over, and over, and over. and over again. That is stand by Sharon, encouraged her to be her own person, be faithful and devoted to only her, and most of all have amazing passionate and hot love scenes.
Tell me this, how is Nick supposed to do all of this you are mentioning when he was married to Phyllis? Shadam love scene was all about Shick "how can we make it better" . Shick was known for their passionate love scene and once again Shick was the standard. Shadam would not be as appealing to some if it weren't for Shick. And as far as encouragement, go back and check old clips Nick always supported Sharon and encouraged her. She did not have THAT much drive to be anything other than Nick's wife for a long time so it's not Nick's fault if that suited him. Heck she is no longer married to Nick now and she still doesn't have a job or has better herself in anyway so who is the blame for that....
