The Bold and the Beautiful:
Liam married Ivy to keep her in the country but warned it was only on paper, due to his feelings for Steffy. Steffy visited Ridge and Caroline and apologized for her prior objections to their relationship. She shared news that Liam planned to break up with Ivy in order to reunite with her. After Liam summonsed Steffy, they shared a kiss before he revealed his sudden marriage of convenience to Ivy. Steffy slapped Liam, who promised he only wanted a life, including children, with her. She refused to share him with Ivy, told Liam she was done with him and stormed off. Ivy ended up convincing Liam that they could make a real go of their marriage and never revealed that the immigration agent found the correct paperwork her parents had filed, which allowed Ivy to stay in the States – with or without Liam’s help.
