Days of our Lives spouses could be called into action.

Every weekday Days of our Lives viewers tune in to watch the antics of their favorite characters in Salem. From competing in business to scheming to get into someone’s bed, and yes, even falling in love the audience is there for it all. June is also a popular month for weddings, both on television and in real life. There is no one reason that can be pinpointed on why the month is so popular to be married in. Some argue it is because the name of the month derives from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage, and those married in this month would be blessed with prosperity and happiness. Others argue when bathing was something less practiced, people most usually bathed in June, when it was warm enough to do so, and thus with everyone squeaky clean it became the time to get married. This summer, four couples are set to marry on Days of our Lives: Justin (Wally Kurth) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers), Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), and Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker).

Because of the soap opera’s advanced taping schedule, Days of our Lives likely has enough new episodes to take them into September. Fortunately, states and industries are beginning to open back up, including the television and film industry in California. Bold & Beautiful was the first soap opera to resume filming new episodes, though they’ve briefly shut back down in order to make sure they have enough testing kits to resume safely. Executive producer Brad Bell explained blow-up dolls or actor’s spouses may be used to safely tape love scenes. Days of our Lives could potentially adopt a similar measure.
