Quote mgmad1993: Why did Chelsea and Adam get a divorce? How did he choose Newman over her? Was he spending too much time away from her and they never got over losing their baby?
Basically yes. He chose NE/Victor over Chelsea, never got over that baby they lost, and in his guilt with all the evil he did to Sharon, tried to help her to make up, for what he did to her, therefore costing him his wife, and he's been more miserable every since. That is how I saw it, others will surely disagree.
That's exactly how Adam sees it, too. He told Jack it was a brilliant move (insert sarcasm) helping Sharon and chasing after NE. He said it cost him his family and he's regretted it ever since. Now that he's given up the company and written off Sharon, he's positioned to get back all that he lost. He won't be making those same mistakes anymore.
well when Adam made that comment to jack about helping Sharon, clearly he did NOT mean a word of it.
Because despite everything that happens with his 2 minutes marriage
to ChelCon, obviously he still feels something strong enough about his beautiful Sharon to want to keep tabs on he
is in the air..
Such love. I had a coworker at my last job who was diagnosed with BP. Her meds didn't always stop the cycling, and she was hard to be around when she was bottoming out but never dangerous. If I knew that she had stopped taking her meds, I would do everything in my power to convince her to go back on them. And I didn't even like her much.
Adam laughed at Sharon's obsession with Nick and did nothing to help her even though he clearly saw her spiraling out of control. The last time Sharon bottomed out she nearly died in a fire; yet Adam knew she had quit her meds and didn't lift a finger. Who does that? Not somebody in love.
On the other hand, Chelsea couldn't even trip on a couple of stairs without Adam being there to catch her. He haunted Crimson Lights hoping to bump into her, and even tracked down blankie after she gave it away b/c it had belonged to their child that never had a chance. He told both Jack and Avery that he was still in love with Chelsea, and he even complained to Victor about the family that should have been (and secretly was) his.
Adam meant every word he said to Jack. There was no motive for him to lie to his friend. Adam will soon be reunited with his love, Chelsea. He and Sharon have been friend-zoned at best.
well, with all due respect, I'm going to have to disagree with you with you there on all accounts.
It is NO MYSTERY why Adam was hopping at ChelsCon's legs for dear life
Let's not be oblivious here as to why he kept a tight leach on the Con.
Adam was simply protecting his investment, thy name baby Connor. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with any such LOVE he may have felt for Con, the person
Like I've said before in a previous thread, Adam had to play his cards well in order to get to the truth that baby peanut was his.
What good would it have done for him to go running to rescue his ONLY TRUE LOVE at a critical time like that.
Let's NOT forget, Chelsea was doing everything in her power at the time to keep Adam from ever knowing the truth about his son.
The little twit even went as far to use poor Dylan into her Con which of course ended up BLOWING in her face .
Let's make NO mistake here, as preoccupied Adam was trying to get to the TRUTH, his sweetheart Sharon was NEVER far in his mind.
That is why he made certain to find a way somehow to make sure that Sharon was NOT in any immediate danger as to cause PHYSICAL harm to herself.
Yeah, sure he knew she had stop taking her medication temporarily but she was NEVER in any immediate danger for him to come running to her rescue.
I can almost guarantee you had Adam even suspect that there was a possibility that his LOVE would cause any PHYSICAL harm to herself, he would have DROP everything and come running to her.
In the meantime Adam had to focus more of his attention to his agenda to get ChelsCon to confess.
After all he had a LOT invested in the little twit
In regard to Adam chatting with Jack about this supposed
love he feels for the con, it's only b/c he was thinking that the LOVE of his life did NOT want any part of him and thus assume she no longer LOVE him.
While Sharon assumes the exact same thing, so you can say they both had their wires cross .
Now, Adam stepping forward to help catch ChelsCon fall is only natural and quite understandable considering ChelsBore was bearing his child.
And even if the Con was NOT pregnant, Adam would have still catch her fall b/c it is only normal to see a female about to fall and Adam being the gentleman he is, would step up and do right thing in that instance..
So like I have said before, SHADAM is much more than the constant giggling, whining, complaining, folding clothes and so on..
They are TRULY each other's soul mate, in every ways that matter :) They are the REAL deal here
And furthermore, this bears repeating again, Adam words to Sharon "WE ARE TOGETHER EVEN WHEN WE ARE APART"
