Love and marriage occurs more frequently for some soap opera characters.

Whether it’s a case of being lucky in love, fickle, or addicted to weddings, some characters from Bold and Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and Young and Restless have found themselves at the altar numerous times. While not all of those marriages end up being valid and some are annulled almost immediately, the weddings take place nonetheless. Bold and Beautiful, in particular, has become notorious for annulments that sometimes take place months after the wedding – only on soaps!

What’s interesting is how many times soap opera characters marry the same person repeatedly. Bold and Beautiful’s Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) has been to the altar eight times with Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss, Thorsten Kaye), Days of our Lives’ Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) has married John Black (Drake Hogestyn) six times, General Hospital’s Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Sarah Brown, Tamara Braun, Jennifer Bransford, Laura Wright) have wed each other four times, and Young and Restless’ iconic couple, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) have been to the altar (or in the hospital bed) four times as well.
