Are Bold and Beautiful’s Ridge and Brooke better with others?

There’s no denying that Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) have had an iconic romance that has spanned decades, and while they are fond of saying they can overcome anything, the flip side is that they continually break up. Are they truly one another’s ‘destiny’ or are they simply drawn back together time after time even though they’d be better with other partners? What should happen with the couple when Bold and Beautiful resumes new episodes?

When Bold and Beautiful left off, Brooke and Ridge were on the outs, thanks to Brooke sharing an ill-advised kiss with ex-husband, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), in the cabin. When the video evidence emerged, Ridge couldn’t stomach the betrayal and ran off to Los Vegas with Shauna Fulton (Denise Richards), who he had been kissing before his latest reconciliation with Brooke.

Despite the threat to his own relationship, Bill has been quick to come to Brooke’s defense since the kiss reveal, and while Brooke has seemed more concerned about hanging onto Ridge, perhaps she hasn’t taken pause to examine why she kissed Bill – it may be that she’s never stopped loving him and never will.

Shauna and Ridge are from different worlds and backgrounds, but sometimes that makes for the best relationships. Shauna occasionally seems more of a fan than a romantic partner, but she only has eyes for Ridge and has put his happiness ahead of her own feelings more than once. A woman who has eyes only for him may just be relationship goals for Ridge.
